The transport agent I hired, Call N Ship, gave the job to Lakeville Motor Freight. LMF picked up the frieght. But then they subcontracted delivery to Magnum Freight. Magnum Freight refused delivery, claiming the shipment was sent COD, at COD rates. In fact, the freight had been paid in full and prior to pickup. Somewhere along the line, whether by honest mistake (or not) the ball was dropped. If this happens to you, DO NOT PAY the extortion money. Contact the shipping agent you hired. It may take extra time and patience, but you'll get your freight. Hats off to Michael Allison at Call N Ship.
