    The floor is now junk and insurance likely will not pay to have it restored to like new. Now I get to put my 15 year old piece of #### back on the road while the new trailer goes in the shop.

    Once it's fixed, it's going up for sale. No one has any respect for what I worked hard for. I've learned my lesson and won't upgrade my equipment anymore.

    That's unreal. How in the hell could they shave the floor like that?
    I drop in some Sysco places and they are about as bad as I have found.
    That's the trouble with trailers. They are hammering away in and out of there. Many time I just say to myself, it's a good thing I don't own a trailer or we would have a lot of problems here.
    I feel for you man.

    Right, but you do not get on the dock to watch a #### thing in lot's of places. I have a Sysco spot where you take paper and your door number to the office window. You go back to the truck, wait for the green and get your paper for the back of the trailer.
    Lucky I have only had one issue so far. Four boxes of onions thrown aside as damaged. Of course those were up in the load somewhere and may well have been pulled off a skid when they backed out.
    No one will ever know the truth.

    Yeah, but the muppets will bang your rub rail, run the mast into your toolboxes -

    You still gotta watch them.

    Yep, I have had grocery warehouses rip the wall out of my reefer, and then deny the hell out of it. I got out of that business. I got tired of being treated like a leper by these minimum wage idiots and sold my trailer and went back to open deck. I have a step deck now and the difference is night and day. I had forgotten how nice it was to show up somewhere and be treated like a human being.

    That’s what it looks like, and tilted down.

    That’s a hell of a gouge, and all due to nothing but laziness.

    Insurance agent called back this morning. Of course, they're not going to cover it. Keep that in mind if you get insurance from Hadley & Lyden, underwritten by American Southern Insurance. Not worth the paper its printed on.
