Transport Connection / Auto ShippingConvicted fellon who uses abusive language

Like other people here have mentioned, this guy is a complete nut job who is looking for excuses to pick a fight even with his prospective customers and uses very abusive language. Like someone also suggested, this guy is a convicted fellon (extortion). See www.dc.state.fl.us and search for Bill Avrich.

Below is an email chain that took place after I called Bill (the owner) to tell him that I wanted to ship my car with him, but wanted clarification on his quoted price because I had gotten two different quotes from him by email (one for $1, 175 and one for $1, 225). He said to forward him the email so he could personally verify it and give me an updated quote. This is what followed:

Bill,
Per our telephone conversation last night, this is the original quote I got from you. Please let me know what your current assessment may be. Please note my car is a 2004 Jeep Liberty, not a 1994 (although I doubt that has any impact for you).
Regards,
Mxxx Rivera

Mxxx,
As I mentioned, a quote is just a rough estimate. I explained how the bidding process works and how I go about finding carriers. Ultimately, it is the carrier who sets the price, and not the broker or customer. You will get the lowest real price from the best carrier.
Sincerely,
Bill Avrich

Bill,
Yesterday you asked me to forward you the quote you had sent me so that you could sit down in front of the computer, look at the current bids for my route and give me an updated quote. Am I to expect something different now?

Mxxx,
We are going around in circles here. You just don't get it, and apparently never will. You are obsessed with obtaining a firm "quote", rather than a "price", and seem unable to distinguish between the two. I feel that you are trying to get me to box myself into a corner by committing to a quote, when it is the actual carrier who does this. I think that you need to find another company that will tell you what you want to hear, since it is obvious that you do not want to hear the truth if it is different from what you want to hear.
Sincerely,
Bill Avrich

I agree. I need to deal with someone with whom I can have a normal conversation and who is not interested in arbitrarily turning every conversation into an ego battle. I would also like to deal with someone who can honor his commitments (I'm not talking about your price vs quote nonsense. I'm talking about the fact that last night you very clearly said you were going to do something which now you abusively reject to do). I'm sorry I wasted my time.

Get lost. I repeat...you are NOT welcome as a customer and I REFUSE your business because you are totally ignorant as to how this industry operates. You could not pay me enough to rake your business, and you are not going to dictate the rules here.
Do not even bother trying to contact me again, as I have blocked your email address and every email you send from hereon in shall automatically be returned as "unaccepted".
Sincerely,

    I purchased a 1979 ford p/u truck in boise idaho, and needed it transported to long island new york. so i called a company in florida called ALL USA MOVING SERVICES, the person i spoke too was named eli who was the seniortransport coordinator, well he threw me a low ball price of $995 bucks to move my truck, so i said thats perfect, so i payed the deposit of $195 bucks and had to pay the rest to the driver when he delivered the truck too me. eli promised to me in a written agreement he emailed me stating that the truck would be picked up on nov, the 14th and delivered to n.y. on or before nov, 23, which was a big lie, when i called eli back on nov, 14th to ask if my truck was being picked up he had no answer, he turned me over to customer service, which i got nothing but attitudes from and couldnt tell if my truck was picked up yet.eight days went by, no phone calls i called them on nov, 22 to asked why they never called me to let me know what was going on with my truck, a girl named tonya got on the phone and said no one has picked up the job yet.which i was promised to have by the 23 of nov, so i gave up with them and called bill at transport connection also in florida, i also turned the other company and extra truck going from the same place, from boise to n.y. and they still couldnt hook me up. from the moment i spoke to bill from transport connection it was a pleasure, he got me and the other guy a great price, put us on the phone with the trucking company right away, got everything worked out perfect. the company that delivered the two trucks was motion express, a great guy named serge kept contact with us the whole time and got us the trucks in three days could not ask for more, got to location dropped off trucks went over both of them, and there where no issues at all.bill also found out that the other company ALL USA MOVING SERVICES had our trucks listed on the main board for$1.300 bucks which meant when the trucks got to n.y. we would of payed a lot more than $800 bucks, it was just a scam just to get us to sign up and steal and charge us more $. now ALL USA MOVERS wont give us back our $, thats not right. let everyone one know how bad that company is. go with bill at transport connection he does the right thing for everyone thanks!

    Nice try, pedophile. Too bad that you are not a customer. This is why you are using an anonymous identity and email address. You sound like a very miserable individual, not to mention, a cheapskate. As for being a "nut-job", I am not the one fabricating slanderous emails and publishing gibberish on the net. Now grow up and get a life, you loser.
