Hello Steve ………...
76' Dodge PwrWgn. arrived at my location yesterday 2 - 14 - 2020 . All was in order and the truck was all your photos and descriptors indicated that it was . I remitted to Douglas Allen , transport driver , the sum of $1,200 .00 cash for which I have a signed receipt . Douglas apprised me of his departure and travel routesvia cell phone to my number of record . He arrived ' 30 minutes ' late as to his projected arrival time but considering the distance for the haul …….. he was in fact ' on time ' ……. LOL …… !!!!! There were no problems as to the haul and when , with some local assistance @ the dealership vehicle drop off destination , I entered the cab and we gingerly let the truck ' roll off ' the car carrier lower berth . Amazingly , the brakes did hold and when unloaded , I placed the manual transmission selector in a lower gear which then kept the truck in place until I could get into a permanent locate bay . All in all , I would like to say thank you for a satisfactory business transaction . All was a ' win - win ' for both of us in that you made a sale and I received a truck that was a very near match for my project . Thank you for coordinating the haul as well as Mr. Allen was very good to work with while on the road and also assisted at the point of delivery.
