    My trailer is basically totaled. Can’t drive it too far and I’m fully loaded. So we can’t just leave the trailer. Broker says if seal is broke the load is no good so I can’t load another trailer. What should we do?

    Easiest thing would be remove latches from damaged trailer and install on the other trailer

    You need to work with the broker to find a solution, otherwise you are going end up with a claim. My first thought would be a refrigerated cross dock and load it on to another trailer.

    Why was the trailer loaded if it was basically totaled? If the event that left it basically totaled happened after loading what occurred? You're asking questions, but leaving out important information.
