    I'm posting this from the perspective of an investor who entrusted this company and it Principal, Caleb Estrada Vasquez. Invested a six figure amount in this family business back in May 2018. Signed a contract to pay back the loan in two years in monthly payments with Caleb Estrada. Received some payments but 9 months behind and more than $100K still owed. Requested to see Estrada's bank statement in past 3 months per contractual agreement but nothing provided yet. They promised to setup ACH for monthly payment but never materialized. Not quite sure when is the next pay date. It's been a very frustrating and irritating experience doing business with this firm. Numerous cases of breach of contract and negligence in my case. My experience has shown that the Principal of the company is unreliable, incompetent with a diminishing credibility. Stay away from this business if they solicit funds from you to invest.

    Got in the business when it was hot and got burned when it cooled down to the point we are currently at in this industry.

    Good luck getting your money. I'd be taking Mr. Vasquez to court.

    From our point of view, this doesn't necessarily make them a bad company. Just sayin'....

    Maybe Artie Grossman Transport is a good investment.
