My brothers used to be a mobile pet groomer up until a couple of weeks ago. How he loved his job and his clients loved him too. He was so amazingly good at what he did and so caring too! It was the perfect job for an animal lover and he was his own boss. I was so proud of him and yes I still am even though his Grooming Van with all of his business was stolen in a Bi-lo Parking lot. It's amazing how fast your life can changes with the snap of finger. He didn't have the money to start all over and he didn't even have a back-up vehicle. Our family reacted as fast as we could to this situation. He needed a vehicle; I had one, my father wired me the money to pay for shipping.
We arranged for this to happen by dropping off the truck with the shipping company. I used the company dasautoshippers.com which is commonly used by eBay autos. They are not a broker, but instead a direct shipper and they use trucks instead of trains to ship the vehicles.
I dropped off my little truck on Saturday, March 1st. Well it is now March 20th and the truck has yet to arrive. It is stuck in Morrow GA indefinately or at least it was this morning when I called. Then my brother called later and they said the truck was just transferred to another shipment and should be in Simpsonville tonight.
It was originally due to arrive in Simpsonville, SC on Saturday, March 15th and it was cool to be able to track the truck using a tracking number on their website in order to see where the truck was in real time. I would type it in at any moment through out the day and see how far the shipment had gone. Very, very cool! Then a huge storm of tornatoes and severe weather hit Atlanta on Saturday, March 15th (the date of arrival) and since then that's why his truck is stuck in Morrow, GA. The truck shipping my truck had a GPS positioning devise which enabled you to know exactly where your vehicle is during the entire shipping process. Pretty cool but not when your shipment gets delayed. Then you have to call the number to actually find out where your shipment is.
Well on Good Friday, March 21st, my brother finally received the Power Ranger or so she earned that name after many blizzards and near collisions that were avoided from horrible drivers. Yes, I call the truck a she or refer to her as a she. He is so incredibly happy to have some nice wheels and now he can finally take girls out in it instead of the wet dog smelling Grooming Van.
