Legal advice,

Paid a guy to pick up and ship a car from Baton Rouge, La.
to Broken Arrow, Ok.

Car was to be picked up on July 22nd and delivered with in 7-10..

Well shipping was paid for and as of today the car has still not been picked up and communication with the shipper has been non existent since Friday of last week...

Where would I file a civil suit?

In my county where the car was to be delivered where the car is to be picked up,

Am I just screwed????

I went through a similar deal and had to got to small claims court where the transaction occured -considered to be where the vendors place of business is had to pay to get started would have had to appear in court -i dont know what you paid but, i would probably try to get is settled or just move on -with what i spent on gas and time away from work and home it wasnt worth it -just remember once you start you cannot just stop you can be held responsible for all court and legal fees.

I have shipped a few cars and the places I delt with allways asked for payment when the car was delivered,not before it was even picked up.

Our family owns a small trucking company and we allways get payment at the time of delivery.

Your best bet is prob a comsumer affairs type deal.If you go to court they can drag it out forever. Also U-ship should have some type of deal to go after bad companys,contact them and let them know what happend.

Hope it works out for you,I hate to hear of chit like this.

Maybe its just me but does anyone else see something wrong with a wire transfer through wal-mart?

It was a Money Gram similar to using Western Union,

The deal was made @ about 2:30 and the car needed to be picked up by 4:30 that day. He said he had a wrecker about 10 minutes away but he required a Deposit he had been hosed on payment of the delivery of some cars so they no longer did pickups until they had a $500 deposit.

I have done quit a bit of business on U-ship in the last 4 months this guy had 7 positive shipments in the last 3 months and 2 negative afterwards I found out he had multiple canceled deals,

Oh I have an account to ship money to anywhere in the world that can be picked up at any Wal Mart, that is why he was paid in that manner.

I have shipped about 20 cars and had a couple that we had to do deposits with,

I could not find anyone else who would even bid this job, had it up on 4 sights for a week. When I got a bid and he said he was 10 minutes away I didnt mind paying the deposit..
