Available Logistics Avail transport Never, ever use this company to move your car, You will regret it!!! Glen Cove, New York
*Consumer Suggestion: Charging more to deliver
*Consumer Comment: Available Logistics, Also see Tristar Auto Transport
Do not hire this company to move your car.
Their contract allows them to over charge, delay and otherwise keep your deposit. Do not sign it or otherwise agree with it or you are at their mercy. They require a $175.00 fee UPFRONT to begin looking for a driver and truck to transport your car. Don't do it!!
My story is typical of the rip-offs in this industry. I contracted them to move my car from Georgia to Arizona for $740.00, (including the $175.00 deposit). The salesman assured me of a quick pick up. Almost three weeks later, my car had still not been picked up.
Since my deposit was paid through Paypal, I filed a complaint that my car had still not been shipped as agreed. When the broker found out about the complaint, he shipped my car with a driver that charged me $925, and then added his $175.00 fee again, for a total of $1100.00 COD. I never agreed to pay that much and was unprepared when the car arrived with one hours notice at almost double the price.
If I did not come up with the $1100.00 within the hour I was threatened that they were going to take my car to storage where more fees would apply.
In my opinion, this is basically extortion and should be illegal.
I am going to look into the local laws in NY and contact whomever will listen to me. It may not do any good, but I have to try.
