Customer Question
I hired a transport...

I hired a transport broker to transport my boat from OK to Canada. Have a contract for a price but no specific dates other than they had previously scheduled it for 15 June. The 15 June came and went and his excuse was that someone did not get back to him with a height measurement. The second scheduled pick up was for 22 June and the driver did not show up. They say they are looking for another carrier but my patience is wearing thin because my insurance, customs, accepting marina in Canada all have time limits which is costing me time, money etc.. What can be done with this transport broker?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the boat?

Oaklahoma OK, the boat is 14 years old

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I don't know what you mean

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Don't think so

well, I want my boat transported at the price contracted, but these guys are dragging feet. Can I hire a different comany and bill them the difference?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 1 year ago

You may cancel, hire a new company and bill them. You may threaten legal action or have a lawyer do so which may prompt their compliance and a discount for the delay. You may formally sue. If you paid them by credit card you may contest charges as well.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
