Small mishap today's lesson

So for those of you who are following this, a vendor was returning my 97 back to me after some servicing and flipped over three miles from my house.
The flipping happened in New York and the transport company is from New York so after reading 3 rd party accident case law in New York felt pretty relieved that the laws were on my side and I would not continue to lose sleep.
Oh boy wrong again, seems some transport companies have commercial cargo insurance and not auto insurance.
Therefore all those cool little things like diminished loss and loss of use coverage does not apply.
A real crappy way of again making matters worse.

So today's lesson is make sure if you transport or tow your rig they have auto coverage especially diminished value coverage.
Stay turned.

Sorry to hear about this incident.
I personally would not consider this a small mishap.
Thanks for the heads up and good luck.

If you have insurance let them deal with it.
