Transport Connection

I contacted owner "Bill" after receiving above quote to place order. He informed me the price was $250 deposit plus an additional $700-$800. I inquired why such price differential & now a deposit from the quote I received? He started yelling at me that he was only a broker and did not own trucks and automated quotes don't mean anything. I hesitated for a few seconds taking in what he said and then Bill stated "I DON'T NEED THIS BULLS***" and hung up on me. I was never rude. I thought Very Unprofessional and appears he uses "Bait & Switch" to lure customers.

I proceeded to contact Transportreviews.com (who had referred me to Transport connection) to file a complaint as to my experience. [continued below]....
.....  Wihin minutes of filing the complaint, I received a phone call from Bill, dropping the "F bomb" and taunting me about filing the complaint. He called back TWO more times swearing and laughing about his ability to have complaint removed! Which he DID! because I had not completed a transaction, transportreviews.com allow their members to delete complaints.

This guy is an unhinged nut job who is a convicted felon for extortion in FL.  Check it out at:
