Even the big guys have issues!
I sent my 62 Corvette to new owner across the the country to B.C. Upon arrival and inspection by the new owner and the driver it was found the one rear bumper on the back of the 62 had been rubbing against the front bumper extension of the car behind it. They were both the last 2 to come off from the top and front, end of the run. Driver said "sorry, I never seen that happen before". Over the phone, new owner asked me what should be done to make it right. I recommend all 3 pieces of rear, both bumpers and the center license horseshoe should all be replated by the original plater to ensure the rechrome remained consistent. A Bummer. But we used Mackie Transport (that GM used for its Show cars etc) and they said "send us the bill". That was 2x's what the haul cost.
Another story, had a restomod 57 Chev truck shipped from Pomona to Niagara Falls NY for a friend. He paid. Wanted a good deal. Was quoted $1450.00 on an Open carrier, by a broker, to be picked up after the snowbirds were done. About 2 weeks past agreed pick up date, an offer was made to pick up before week was over for another $150.00 cash to driver upon delivery or wait another 2 weeks. Supposed to have been 5 days and 2 hour window to meet truck and driver. Got emergency call 3 1/2 days they were 30 minutes away. Took us 45 minutes to get there crossing the border etc, and these 2 Russian guys are standing there really pissed and ready to unload. "We want $1750 cash right now or the trunk doesn't come off the trailer". AND there was slight damage to the passenger side front fender as the truck scrapped the center upright beam when it was moved the 2nd time to let another vehicle off." It was really dark out last night.. we couldn't see. Sorry! It's only a truck". I've lots of stories.
Well, you get what you pay for. Wait a month and drive it. You'll really enjoy it.
