| A real rip off. Do Not Use Them.|

| Horrible Experience|
|My husband and I were moving from Indiana to California and his car needed to be shipped. At the beginning of August 2012, I was quoted a price of $599, which I thought was amazing. I paid a deposit of $299.00 and expected the car to be picked up on ... [ More ]|
|What we say in almost every response on here, and to every customer we speak to is that we can't guarantee a specific day, and it says that on every shipping order. Despite this, people hear what they want, when Malone called we told her we would have a carrier as soon as we could but she told us she was canceling and making other arrangements. I guess the other arrangements was going with someone that raised her up a few hundred dollars to get her picked up right away, and she is upset over that. She further says she couldn't get in touch, but the person she spoke with was rude? So she did speak to someone, she just didn't like what was being said? We do our best to get cars picked up as quickly as possible, but being flexible is always the key to all shipping. [ view ]|

|We strive to make every customer experience as happy and easy as possible. We do in almost all shipments and that is why are proud of our repeat customers and dealerships that we serve. Once in a while you get a customer like Scoot Lammers, a difficult, demanding customer who wants things his own way, no matter what we did or how hard we tried, he just wanted to scream and yell and make demands. Worst part for Lammers was this was an ENCLOSED carrier for the same price! Lammers canceled with the driver. We don't take things personally, as obviously we have learned when customers behave this way it is their own life and situation that is out of control, and just want to vent and lash out on anyone they can. Best of luck to him and especially to the carrier that transports his car for him. [ view ]|

|FRAUD IS ONLY BY KIMBERLY AND BEN ASPLUND. ABSOLULTEYLY NO FRAUD, IF ANYTHING WE SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR BEING HONEST, AND ALLOWING THEM TO MOVE ON. BUT WE'VE LEARNED THAT NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED, especially in the world of car shipping! We fully refunded this customer deposit because we did not have a carrier to pick up for them on the timetable they needed. Due to the blizzard in upstate New York and the 3 feet of snow, which the customer doesn't even mention; there was no way a driver could get the car for Kimberly and Ben Asplund. They were angry, and did not want to understand that carrier's need to put the safety of the cars they transport as well as their own truck first, before they pick up cars in unsafe, snowy conditions. There were power outages, and even today, 3 days later, schools are still closed in New York where they were shipping from. We tried to explain this to Kimberly Asplund, but she became nasty and abusive. We decided it was best to part ways and let the Asplunds book with another carrier so they could be happy. They were charged a deposit which was refunded.
Transport Reviews is a venting site for angry people like the Asplunds, as you can see for yourself. It is so rare that customers take the time to post a positive review, and write a quick note to say thanks, we received our car and appreciated you coordinating it for us. We pride ourselves in satisfying our customers, even when it means we must cancel an order if we don't feel we can get a carrier there on a customer's time table.
Shame on Ben and Kimberly, abuse like that should not be tolerated. [ view ]|

|We strive to make each move a happy and pleasant one for all of our customers. Thankfully almost all of them are. Occassionaly, we run into customers that are difficult, as the case with Mary West. I am not sure what she means by saying our company didn't agree to her terms??? As why would any company agree to a customers terms? But whatever, we will agree to disagree with Ms. West's accounting of what happened. The bottom line, that she leaves out is, she went with another company for several hundred dollars more; which is basically bidding against yourself, never a good thing.
As for the Better Business Bureau, that is a private agency, not a government agency. ABC News Show 20/20 reported on the BBB, and found that companies that are paid members receive high ratings. No Surprise of course! The terrorist group Hamas, received an A+ rating when 20/20 paid to join, as part of their report. Here is the link to that report : (just copy and paste into your browser).

|First and formost, this reviewer is telling you he was compensated to write this review. Obviously, we would NOT pay someone to write a review period, but certainly NOT A NEGATIVE ONE! Therefore, this compensation is clearly coming from a competitor, promising the world if Cortes, would write a negative review. Secondly, lets get the facts straight. Plain and simple, we are proud to say we NEVER PROMISE OR GUARANTEE A SHIP DATE. This is the first thing mentioned in our terms and conditions that customers accept in order to proceed with an order, as well as stating this on our website. It is sad that people resort to lies and fiction to post a review for compensation, but these are tough times out there and will do anything or fast cash.
As we always state, each story has 2 sides, and we are strive to make each customers experience a happy and pleasant one. That is why we have repeat customers and recommendations. As with all reviews, please use your own judgement, read carefully, and realize compensated reviewer is never going to be an honest one. [ view ]|

|WHY DO PEOPLE WHO RANT ALWAYS LEAVE OUT THE BEST PARTS? Always read reviews, and realize every story has 2 sides, just like Judge Judy says. Thank goodness most of our customers are honest people that appreciate the hard work that goes into a transport and are not looking to take advantage of us or the service we provide. No idea, what Alberto is ranting about. He placed his order, then next day called to say it MUST BE PICKED UP TODAY! We can do that of course, but that is called an expedited order, and a carrier, not us, will get paid extra to provide rush service. Naturally,
Alberto thinks he is smarter than all brokers and carriers and wants something that he is not willing to pay the carrier for the extra rush service.
Apparently, Alberto DID put his car on carrier's truck that we found, thinking, he will cut us out of the deal by saying he canceled and went ahead with the carrier. [ view ]|

|First and foremost, we don't give a customer the first available pick up date. We have no idea when you want to ship your car. We ask you when it is available and we do our best to get it on or as close to date as possible. Angry Juan Trevizo put down 8/16 as his first available date. At 7am, on 8/16, upon getting into the office the phone rang, with Juan Trevizo demanding to know exactly what time today his car was going to be picked up. We responded with a simple question, have we called you sir? Based on his tone, we thought we had! We do our very best to answer each call and be as helpful as possible, but sometimes, when a customer is barking on the other end, and being rude and angry for no reason, it can be quite challenging. We told Juan that as soon as car was assigned we would indeed call him to give him details. NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!! His angry and fury continued and he proceeded to lash out and abuse for several minutes. A few hours later, we called Juan to tell him a driver had been secured for the following day. Too late, was his response, as he proudly told us he had called another carrier to give them the order and proceeded to tell us he was canceling his order.
We are sorry everyone can not be as happy as most of our customers, but in all fairness, we successfully secured a carrier for this customer. If the customer tells us to cancel the order, we have no choice but to follow his wishes, as it is unfair and unproductive to send a carrier out. We are glad we were able to find a carrier for customer for the very next day and not sure why he is ranting, but sometimes the shipping of the car is the least of the customers issues!!!! [ view ]|

|We settled our differences, and he was compensated, what more does he want? This is a great example , some people you can never be happy, no matter what you do for them. Obviously, the car shipping is not what his issue is. There seems to be something else brewing in his life, that is much greater and he is taking it on on us, which is unfair and actually quite sad. Most people are great, and appreciative and others just suck life out of everyone they meet, like Mark who is vening about nothing. [ view ]|

|We are grateful most customers happy with our service despite whether or not they run and post a positive review! We do find that anyone, especially when their facts are not correct, as with Mr. O'Connor seem to thrive on venting; frankly he is the scam artist in this transaction, distorting what happened. Quotes come from milage, carriers routes. We ALWAYS blow our competitition away with our professionalism and ability to find a carrier for each move at the best rate. Our repeat customers, dealerships, and many client referrals prove this everyday. What we ask for is customers flexibility and plain common sense. This move was coming from the remote end of Long Island to Oklahoma, a very uncommon route, happening during summertime, the busiest time of the year. Most people, would realize what a difficult move this was. A driver was secured that want slightly more than the quote. This extra money goes entirely to the driver, NOT to us. Mr O'Connor felt that we should work for free. He refused carrier and started making accusations that are false and without merit. [ view ]|

|As much as we strive to satisfy every customer above and beyond their expectations sometimes, customers come in with unrealistic expectations. The facts are she had 2 vehicles to ship, and she double booked with another company and wanted her cars picked up immediately. She is not being honest on this review and wouldn't even use her real name; Cricket (aka, Mary Lee Masters) as I am sure you have already guessed. [ view ]|

|We are always disappointed when a customer can't be satisfied, however with each customer we try our best to get them the date they request, and the best possible price. Our strong work ethic and honesty has allowed us to make most customer experiences pleasant. However, when customers are not flexible, and do not understand the shipping process, things may not go the way they want. Firstly, we don't schedule the date, as Ashim states. We ask for first date available and do our best to get a carrier for that date or as close to it as possible. We all use same drivers and same trucks, and in the end, when Ashim cancelled, he basically used the same carrier to transport his car with another broker; at the same price, so not clear on what he is so upset about. He fails to mention that he had to have the car picked up on a certain day, wanted it get to TX there almost immediately which is unrealistic. [ view ]|

|'Got Nervous' does not do justice to describe Amy Hommen. She not only booked her cars with us, she also booked with two other transporters as well. We kindly tried to explain to her, while we have secured a carrier to pick up her truck and SUV, the carrier is reluctant and skeptical to schedule 2 spaces on his load, since two other brokers are actively trying to move her vehicles as well. Carriers do not want to get to the pick up location, only to find another transporter has beaten them to it, after they spend their time, fuel, and effort in unbearable summer heat and traffic for a "maybe" customer; who is waiting for a better deal to come along from another broker.
We had a carrier to pick up both cars but Hommen did not want the carrier. She was baited, hook , line and sinker with Progressive as well as another fly by night company promising the world. What makes no sense is why the Hommen were so easily fooled by brokers that were poaching her!
Frankly, we feel the scam artist is non other than Amy Hommen herself! Expecting a carrier to come at her whim, while she has obviously made arrangements with 2 other companies. While shipping and moving is stressful in general, customers that play games with us and our carriers should realize they are only hurting themselves. [ view ]|

|There is clearly confusion with this customer Brad Ferri and his shipping order. Firstly, Mr. Ferri was very familiar with our company and had come to us through a recommendation by the salesman at the Ford dealership he was purchasing his car from. He asked many questions, which we answered to his satisfaction. Once he placed his order, he wanted to expedite it; as he wanted the car immediately. We found a carrier, that wanted $50 more, since Brad demanded car be brought to him right away. That brought total to $299, not an additional $ 225 as he states. That is not correct. He didn't understand, and would not allow us to explain this was to the carrier, not our company, since he was in a big rush and wanted car right away. Brad Ferri was just angry and want to yell. Apparently he felt it was easier to just vent on the internet and call us names, and create a story that is not true.
To prospective customers please understand, we do the best job we can while offering the fairest price and superlative service. Every so often a hot head like Brad Ferri comes along, that we must deal with, who without all the facts, makes accusations that are totally false and without merit. [ view ]|

|Had driver for customer at quoted rate! When driver called to schedule pick up with customer, he tried to renegotiate rate, because another broker promised a better rate to him. So customer stories of storage fee woes, and tales of shipping woes all while arguing with us, the carrier, but mostly arguing with himself- screwed things up for him. We work very hard to ship every car and best prices available in the country, but honestly, when people try to interfere and play brokers against each other, the drivers see it and get annoyed and move on.

|The only liar/theif and crook is BRIAN WARREN is or why he keeps amending his review(s). Not sure what Brian Warren issue is, but since he was paid to write a negative review as a compensated reviewer by competitor, the facts go out the window at that point, since Brian Warren is running his own scam and profiting on his lies. Now that we called him on the compensated part, he has altered to review to show not compensated, very convenient for him. The facts remain we did have a carrier for him, AT THE QUOTED PRICE ! ; but since he double booked and got baited by the lies of a competitor he wanted to cancel with us, after we worked on his order and found a carrier to transport his pick up truck for him. As stated over in over in many positive reviews from non compensated reviews, we are a hard working, dependable company with happy wonderful customers, - - don't let the paid lies of Brian Warren sour them. Especially enjoy the part of the review that he upset with the BBB also!
