    Response:Hi Lorri. Thanks for an amazing 5 Star Review! I'm so thankful to have great customers like you, who clearly understand the difference between working with us and the majority of the companies out there who give the low-ball quotes and never come through. If they do it's a long painful process of initial lies, excuses and eventually up-selling you to the realistic price. We simply don't play those games and don't ever take deposits. As you explained I take the time to explain how the transport business works and answer any questions to ensure that each customer understands the whole process. I try to always put myself in the customer's shoes as when I'm looking for a service. I'm thrilled to deliver your new Subaru Crosstreck so early from a difficult pickup location during some predicted bad weather. I sure appreciate the referrals and look forward to working with you, your friends and family in the future. Please call me anytime. Happy Holidays!

    Response:Thanks Mike for taking the time out of your busy flight schedule to leave a nice review and all the kind words. I know talking with you and in your review you put a lot of time not only in purchasing your new M-37 but also the extensive research involved into the transport of it. I sure appreciate that you gave us the opportunity when you've had numerous other companies over the years that you could've went with, I appreciate it! From our conversation after delivery it sounds like all of your research paid off with the quality of the M-37 and your compliments on the phone and in this review of our transport service. I look forward to working with you again on the upcoming purchase you mentioned and your fellow pilots in the future. Thanks again! Dave Office: 515-207-1494, Cell: 712-210-4019, [ view ]

Yes you and I have been talking for a long time while you've been trying to find the perfect classic Bronco. I never mind quoting my customers as many times as they need until they find the exact right vehicle they're looking for. There's many nights we were texting long past anybody's normal hours working on different quotes for Broncos all over the US. It's always very rewarding to help out in these situations.

    Response:Hi Jayne, thanks for making a little time to leave such a nice review. I appreciate all of your homework researching all of the companies out there and for recognizing rather quickly there's companies that will simply quote customers low just to get the order and a deposit, many times never even transporting the vehicle. As you said this was your first time ever shipping a car and because it was for your son you wanted the best. I'm so glad we made the short list and I was able to go onto help you get the Taurus out to NE to your son and keep it within your budget. I have a daughter in college so I know how important it is to help our kids out when they need something. Customers like you are one of the big reasons I love what I do. Please call me anytime if you ever need help again. I'm always available. Thanks, Dave Office: 515-207-1494, Cell: 712-210-4019, [ view ]

    Response:I'm really trying to remain positive and come up with a positive response to such a negative review. The name of our insurance company is Lancer insurance. We are checked for insurance almost everyday when we pass through scales. Of course we don't want to make claim on our insurance company is lancer insurance. Also, Mr. Miller is exaggerating the damage of oil that dripped onto the roof of the car and wants his car repainted. Of course we don't want to make claim on insurance and we don't just make claims because someone says so. You have to gather the facts and go from there. We yet to receive all of the estimates from Mr. Miller. Hopefully we will turn such a negative experience into a positive outcome. Unfortunately, in this instance the customer wants to be as difficult as possible. The "damage" happened a week ago. It takes time. Things do happen and takes both sides to work through it.

    Response:Michael, Thanks for the tremendous 5 Star Review! I really appreciate your business and enjoyed working with you. As you stated picking the right carrier to ship a bran new 2014 Chevy Camaro can be a daunting task let alone having to ship it from MI to Hawaii. I sure appreciate all the research, homework and allowing me to explain the pros/cons of both open and enclosed transport and just the general behind the scenes picture of how everything really works in our industry before making your final decision. Anybody can just blurt out a low price and a couple one liners to get a deposit but that's not what gets the customer's car moved. As I've stated many times in my responses honesty, great communication and also having great relationships is the absolute key to a successful transport. I hope you have a lot of fun in your new Camaro and look forward to working with your fellow Hawaiian friends and family. Thanks again, Dave Ofc: 712-775-2151, Cell: 712-210-4019, [ view ]
