I recently completed a shipment of my fifth wheel trailer from New York to Utah. I had contacted with a driver (he had very positive feedback on 3/5) who picked up the trailer and had informed me at that time that it had faulty break lights and also needed a safety chain and that he would take it to his service center in Missouri along the way. As I was in no big hurry, I agreed to this and so the story starts. While my trailer was in Missouri the transported died. My belongings along with several others got locked in his garage and none of us knew where it was. Through several emails and phone calls a large group of us started to investigate the situation and fortunately we were able to track down our items. I made my own arrangements for a local tow service to haul it to a secure area, as the property it was at was going to get locked down in probate court which can take many months to straighten out. I recontracted with JonMar transportation to haul it from Missouri to Utah. Gary picked up my trailer and informed me the lights were working and the safety chain was not needed. He drove it from Missouri to Colorado where it started snowing. Gary had to spend the night(s) in Colorado until the road cleared enough to get through I-70 and into Utah. He called me religiously during the transport and kept me informed of his every step, always taking caution and keeping the safety and well being of my trailer first. We finally meet up in Utah on Saturday 4/12. He stayed to make sure my trailer was set up and functioning properly. Needless to say JonMar Transport came through with flying colors and got me my trailer. Thanks!!
