Relax. Different people or companies provide products and services to a different clientele. It is a part of capitalism. In my business, I am not the low end either, my clients appreciate the value added for the services I provide. On the other hand, I don't market to the low end, so the tools, equipment, and talent needed to be competitive in my market make me uncompetitive in the low end.
My point is, I had an easy self trailered 6500lbs. load to be delivered across the country to Los Angeles, I checked with you first and got your pricing. I asked if there was any room for movement on price, and you said no. I then went to an auction site and had 5 bids with $200 total of $1.25 a mile. The first one I chose (see above) was thorough in explaining to me the charges in detail, but also timing expectations, as well as pitfalls that may happen such as trailer problems, and those contigencies. Phone calls and email correspondance were addressed in a timely manner. In addition, I went to a website to verify a current DOT license, as well as had a certificate of insurance with current dates faxed to me within one hour of request. It worked, she got my business and everything worked out for me.
BTW, that is a monster truck to me, seemed fine to haul my big load I guess some here are taking this personally. There is no need, we can all make a living in this world.
