    It wasn't 8 days, it could be 5 or 6 as they made him wait when he got there. My dispatcher sent them all the information regarding the closure from the state website. They were informed the entire time.

    Provide all of that to the bond company and decide whether to lawyer up in the next few days IMO. I'm sorry dude this really sucks. Luck in battle I guess. I would definitely contact your cargo insurance and ask them what to do. Most likely this is a situation where you have to file a claim.
    TeamPlatinum Thanks this.

    Yep. Time to provide any and all written correspondence with them on this load. I hope you've also got screengrabs of the closure, as well as the signed BOLs. That's gonna be your best bet here.

    Guys I had a similar experience with TQL back in 2014, here's the thread to that ordeal Reefer Claim, but reefer is fine

    Update. So far the case is still ongoing, my lawyer fees has totaled out to be $6,700. TQL wants $12,900+plus interest and lawyer fees, if they win that basically means this load costed me about 33k (same as the OP lol). Mind you this happened when I was just 4months new into opening up my company back in 2014, and close to 4yrs being in business and hauling many produce, frozen, dairy, and meat loads I haven't had any issues or problem with any broker or shippers and receivers.

    This case should be concluded in late February of 2018 hopefully, the lawyer fees on fighting this of is very expensive, if I win this case i would only have recovered 400-500 dollars after my lawyer fees which is ridiculous and if it goes to trial I'll definitely go into the negatives, but if I lose, I would basically pay out 13k+ after my lawyer fees and TQL laywer fees interest and expenses on top of the original 13k I'm being sued for, I know I haven't done anything wrong and my trailer was on top notch shape when I did this load for TQL, and what they're putting me thru is very wrong.

    This whole experience taught me alot, anyways I'll keep u folks updated how things go.:biggrin_25519:

    I feel bad for anyone who gets burned, no matter who it is. I've only run 7 loads total for them. I've been paid on time for every single load, never an issue. I'm very selective when I do business with them. Yes, it does get annoying when their agents start calling asking if you need an outbound load the closer you get to your delivery for them. I just take it in stride.
    TallJoe and Holland Duck Thank this.

    If you do end up suing, depending on what state you're from you could also get them for illegal wiretapping. Those geniuses do state when you call in that your phone call is being recorded during their initial call in through the recording, BUT, they never state it when they call you. This is against the law in about a dozen different states that require 2 person consent. I unfortunately do not live in a state like this. But I absolutely hate this company and informing people.
