Howdy Y'all!!!:D

Ok I will get right to it.:rolleyes:

A VERY Good Freind of mine recently Bought a 61 Pontiac Tempest
>Car was purchased online & shipped From Ny to Florida .
The car has been painted once & came from a loving home.
Otherwise all original.

Now heres the problem the %@$#& idiot transport driver had every window down on every car on the bottom row of the trailer!:spank:

My Freind said he was able to get in from the passenger side to unload the car so there is no reason for the the windows to be down the whole damn trip nor for all of them to be down ,it has really done a number on the unmolested interior & the transport companty is starting the insurance process.

It went thru heavy rain & was full of road grime troughout.:pain::pain:

In My Humble Opinion unless they have a time machine the damage is never going to be fixed 100% ever.

I am looking for reputable restoration /Detailing shops in South Florida. on the Treasure Coast ,Port Saint Lucie ,that would be able to give Valid excellent service & Estimate, for I am new to this area the one place I knew of in Stuart , Florida .just closed its doors !!:smash::smash::spank:

What to do What to do?

Any & all help as always is Greatly appreiciated & I look forward to your replies.

Wow that is absolute bull..... crap. I'd make them pay to have the whole darn thing redone. YOU DONT TOW A CAR WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN! What was the guy thinking!? Do whatever it takes to get it fixed with ZERO money out of yours or your friend's pocket.

Most likely the truck driver was an independent just hauling for a broker... you'll have to make a claim against HIS insurance carrier... I'd bet the broker does not have coverage for this claim.

Now if the company you contracted to owned the truck then they should have cargo insurance.

I had a horrible experience recently with a car hauler delivered my 67 camaro damaged. I lost it! I called up my insurance company and they paid me for the damages and said they would fight to get my deductible back from the trucking company I know that will never happen. The car came to me with the front wheel collapsed into the wheel well, the front upper control arm bolt broke and collapsed it into the header destroying it. The rear spoiler was scratched and the car was full of water spots, mind you this was an enclosed trailer. I used a broker and when the truck came it was a pos so I should have never put my car on the trailer to begin with. The damages were about 2k I got 1500 from my insurance company and did all the work myself. Well I had to bring it in for an alignment and I paid someone to weld a new piece on the header. It is not just the damage to the vehicle it is the attitude of the company and driver. To them it is just a piece of metal to us it is a family member. I hope you have luck, like I said try your insurance company that is what it is there for.

Insurance wont cover stupid,
You wouldn't think so but I see it all the time. How about locking a large dog in your car until he SHREDS the door panels on a couple of doors, SHREDS the seat, in included him going all the back to the rear window and eating the wire going to the rear window for the defroster off! I have photos at work, I don't mean tears it up, I mean SHREDS the seat and door panel into THOUSANDS of pieces shredding the foam and filling the car with little pieces. On the claim it was worded something like "Dog had mental issue" or something stupid like that, yeah he had a mental issue, being LOCKED IN A CAR I would too! This damage took quite some time to do, it wasn't like the owner was in the car or something.

The insurance company paid THOUSANDS of dollars.

You want another, how about a ******bag putting a Weber BBQ in the back of his Lexus RX350 full of HOT CHARCOAL and DRIVING IT! Yep, the BBQ fell over and did about $2K damage to the interior, YEP the insurance paid for it!

I don't get it, they cry an moan for every dollar we ask them for to fix a car properly yet the do crap like this!:boxing:

Welcome back Rob, that is so disgusting it isn't funny. I have heard of a few of these lately and you can get some money out of these fools but it will take a bunch of work. Sad part is, no amount of money brings back originality.

That is completely absurd im sorry to hear that, i was having a conversation about this the other day people now a days dont take pride in what they do any more. I tried some hotshot hauling cars for a small amount of time and i had to stop because i got **** grom brokers because i take to long strapping down and they had a problem with checking my straps and doing things by the book. So i sold the truck and trailer and here i am now
