Well it was supposed to be picked up on Friday and brought home, of course mother nature wanted me to sweat a little. At 2 in the afternoon on Friday when I had not heard from the shipper I decided to call him. Luckily he had just went near the phone, he picked up and told me he was sorry he hadnt called, but he was working the fuel issue. It was 37 below and although the truck was inside, it wasnt in the warmest part of the building so the lines gelled up and he couldnt start it. We made arrangements for the next day, and guess what? It was almost as cold again! This time he was ready, he put the truck in the warmer side and got out in time. He called me on the phone at the prearranged times and kept me in the loop of anything and everything. Arrived earlier than I thought he would, trailer was nice and low, it was just a good shipment.
