I had a great Sony TV that I wanted to give over to my mother 1000 miles away. I used HalCorp to pick it up and drop it off to my Mothers home. The son was an idiot that didn't care about the cargo and did nthing less than the bare minimum to protect it. When he drove away from my place in Miami it was ion excellent condition until it arrived 2 days later in North Carolina at my Mothers. It looked as if it was dropped or it must have bounced around alot while in transit. My Mother and I were very upset. He didn't seem to be surprised and he didn't seem to care. As it turns out the Father Steve is the actual owner of HaLCorp and he did care and he was upset with his sons actions. He was professional and courteous and he helped me file a claim with his insurance provider. This went on for a month but it was settled just a few minutes ago. Even though my Mothers TV is going to be thrown out to the street, we have almost enough to get her another one. I am glad that I at least go my shipping money back and something towards a replacment TV for her. HalCorp did the right thing when it came down to it. Steve the owner seems to be a good honest man that wants to earn an honest living. I think his son was the real problem because they had nice equipment. It is Ok to use them in my opinion because they were responsible to me for their mistakes. Thats all we can ask for. I wish them well......
