Default car hauler nightmare

My tow vehicle is missing!!! This car transport co, ironically called "we care auto", here's what has happened next:
11/14 My Jeep is picked up in California
11/17 The office calls me to advise car will be delivered
the next morning.
11/18 I call, they tell me truck had 2 flat tires!
11/19 I call, they tell me the drivers have quit and truck is
in North Carolina.
11/20 I call, they tell me the truck is in Virginia and has a
dead battery.
11/21 I call, truck is in So Carolina but has hydraulic
problem!
11/22 I call, they say car will be delivered 11/23 for sure!
11/23 I call, truck is in Jacksonville now.
11/24 No one calls (I know it's Thanksgiving)
11/25 I call, truck is almost in Florida, will deliver car by
saturday morning.
Here it is saturday morning, I still have no car and I am so pi---d off with this co!
My first mistake was to use a broker and not deal with a trucking co directly. This broker presented themselves as the actual transporter, I am too stupid to have figured this out.
What are my options???
We (don't) Care Auto, is at 2165 Skibo Rd, Fayetteville, N.C.
Is anyone near this area?

Can anyone tell me what it would cost to get a Porsche 928 S4 shipped from California to Dallas? I've got one quote that about made me piss myself and I sure don't want to deal with what he's gone through.

It should run you around a dollar per mile.

california to dallas on an open carrier should run anywhere from 650 to 800 dollars, that is on an open carrier, if the porsche is not a concourse car than ship open and just wash it and save some money
