In one word "AVOID" this company. We used they service thru the broker otherwise after reading reviews on the internet I never used them. First, the broker lied the way boat will be transportted, he told it will be on the flatbead or semitruck...couple days later we found out that boat was pulled and trailer bearrings failed on the way to IL from FL. Broker give Ed's phone to deal with, I called many times to Ed and directly to SW transporters but they did not pick up the phone, they did not called us asking what we want to do with the broken boat they just put to marina, i asked marina's phone and they did not give it to me. interesting why????finally after 20 days they delivered the boat and we said we will pay only for delivery until they show us the bill for marina. Ed said that invoice is in his how he picked up the boat in TN but invoice is in his office in FL and how he assumes we will pay whatever he says to us...???something to finally he try to run with the boat and also damaged our friends car the one crossed his path on running, also try to scare my husband and others with the knife...AVOID AVOID AVOID...I will write my
review everywhere i can to tell everybody to avoid SW FLORIDA TRANSPORTER and ED LOPEZ!!!!!

ED Get Your Stories Straight

AUTHOR: IL - (United States of America)

Ed Lopez ( SW Florida Transporter)- you are mixing your customers and your stories, first our boat was delivered on June 20, so there is no way we can post this review of your company on June 8. You have too many unhappy costumers with your action that mixed yourself. Second, if you are talking about our situation, we asked to show as the Marine bill for the fixed bearings that your refused to do. I asked the Marine name bunch of times and never got they contact information. What were you hiding from us? You never called us staying that trailer bearings failed.

We got this information from the broker when our boat was in Marine. You mixing your stories already, you telling one story to BBB other story in here. So, you did not provide supporting docs from Marine why do we have to pay you. Maybe you are lying to us and just charging extra???? I called the Marine the one you put on your invoice, and this Marine never heard of your company or our trailer. You are very dishonest person. I have emails staying this. 

That most of reviews posted in June says that you are charging your customers over 1K extra for every delivery. You are playing dirty games with your customers. Third, if you had a wrong address how could you come to the right place. Everybody called police not only you. So, if everybody were chasing you how come you had time to got out from the car put the chain on our trailer with the boat and drag it from the yard? You are making stories that sounds ridiculous. Everybody was sitting and waiting for police.

Nobody kicked you or your car, and you start pushing car in front of you with 3 year old child in there. Gates are automated ant they opens when somebody stands near. We are not the owners of the yard that can come and lock it. Fourth, you got the ticket for improper behavior we did not get any tickets. Call Police and ask...Ed its time stop playing dirty games with the clients. I got some calls from your customers who are ready to file a lawsuit on you. So its coming because the way you are doing business is not fear to your customers, you are making charges from your head.
