"Inside pick-up charge ?" I have heard of carriers charging for inside DELIVERY, but a pick up at a loading dock ? Ask the carrier to furnish you with a copy of the applicable section in their tariff and se what it says.

I booked through a 3rd party CH Robinson. So far they seem to be trying to help. I charged on my credit card and might involve Visa also.

$144 quote has now ballooned to $365

Well a sharply worded email and a picture has resolved the dispute.

The weight charges & "inspection" charges have been reversed to the "original" weight quoted. The "inside" pick up fee of $100 has been reversed.

I was also charged $25 "will call" fee for me to pick up at terminal/ hold on dock. I just let that go as a learning lesson.

I feel that freight quote.com / CH Robinson have been good to work with. They gave me over 6 carriers to choose from.

Central Transport with yellow trucks and trailers will never see me again. My advise is to avoid them like the "swift" trucks on the road....

Thanks Wes as that is exactly what I need and the aerial shot is icing on the cake.

Yes, I made the mistake booking Central. They have tried to screw me on the weight but there is a clear label showing the weight of the item. I disputed that and now this bs. Hindsight, I would have booked another carrier.

Be Aware of Central Transport! They are yellow trucks and trailers! These folks are different than Central Freight which is a different company.
Marty had yellow freight overbill a pallet for 485lbd

I go thru Uship LTL to see what different companies can do it for. I have good luck with road runner freight. Yellow freight charges a delivery appointment fee for folks that dont have a business address and have it delivered.

Some freight companies are scandalous. Yellow freight is one of them. They charge 90$ to relabel a pallet if delivery is refused by someone. pfft

Good to know what Carriers are thieves.

In my Napa Warehouse Manager days down here, R&L, Roadway, and Saia were good carriers that did my outbounds that did not go on NAPA corporate trucks.

Did a load out today at Chambersburg. The GovPlanet load operator was a good guy. He even brought it out with the loader and set it right down on my hook. I brought the correct pintle hitch with chains on a 5kw gen set with trailer. Did not have lights since my truck tail lights were clear to see. Always check you wheel hubs. By the time I got back the right one was much warmer than the left. Pretty much the GP pictures were just what I bought. Need to get some batteries and get this thing running.
