Sorry to hear. That's almost too hard to believe. Please send us a pic when it rolls in to see how it was transported.

Ouch man...sorry to hear! But since you JUST bought it, that should give you a good idea on value for a 1994 with 110k miles though, no?

yes, I have a good feel for current prices but wondering what an insurance company would gauge value by? We will see..... it should land here any time....

I guess the transport company just bought themselves a wreck. I assume that they are bonded/insured and that you are not out any money.

They probably had to change drivers out. They didn't want to send the one who wrecked it..

Do you have insurance on the truck? Clearly they have liability but I hope it's more than common carrier insurance.
Regardless it sucks big time

Sorry about that.

I am pretty sure KBB has a value. In PA, if the blue book and black book have a value, that is the value for insurance. Other states are not so friendly. Likely they will do a search for recent sales and they pick the low ones and give you a shit offer. Fight it.

You are sort of screwed in that you just bought the truck so the value of that truck is set, but you should get retail for replacement value.

A certain poster was very helpful when I totalled my lotus.

If you can sell it as a clear title truck and be happy with a check, I am a buyer for the wreck.

Two of the last several times i had somebody show up at my place either picking up/delivering a car/truck, it was an eastern European dude (Bulgarian was the last one) and I invite you to search Youtube for the thousands of videos showcasing the blatent disregard for driving safety/knowlege.

I'm willing to be anything when your driver shows up that English is his second language and that he probably couldn't read a low clearance sign under a bridge.

Nothing personal or against anyone for which English is a second language, but the standards for truck drivers is VERY different in other developing countries. When the trucking industry became deregulated it became more attractive to drivers from other countries. When you use U-ship or any of the hordes of other shipping brokers out there, this is what you should expect.

If you use a carrier that maintains/runs 100% of its own fleet (like Interstate, Gold Rush etc.) you get 100% service and accounatbility, but you'll pay 2X the cost.

not that I'm telling anyone what they don't already know and it doesn't help the situation now.

Just curious what your driver says when he shows up (now that he's aparently lost again.....maybe at a abar if he's Russian).

Hopefully, it won't be totaled.... Maybe only part of the cage is damaged.

I'm curious as to who was the carrier as well.

I'm sorry you had to experience such a situation.

That's funny. I shipped with a U-ship shipper last fall and it was two guys from, I think, Poland. Really big, scary-looking dudes that barely spoke English. They got it there safely, though. We loaded the truck into one of those boxed car carriers that you might haul a race car in.

I guess it depends on the person involved. My local tow truck driver is a young guy from the Ukraine who is, bar none, the best tow truck driver I have ever seen in my life. Incredibly careful and smart -- I guess he should be as the company does a lot of towing for Algar ferrari.

Doubt one comp will be strong enough to convince an insurance company to do the right thing.
