The agreement called for Professional Transport to tow my newly purchased boat/trailer combination from Orange Beach, Alabama to Moorpark, California. The Seller swore oaths that the 4 wheel bearings had been serviced and the tires had 95% service life left in them. Well, 75 miles out Mike had a catastrophic failure of one trailer tire which he replaced with the spare. Then he noticed that the bearings were running too warm. In San Antonio he experienced a Slow Flat and when he called me for an update we agreed to replace the rest of the tires. From there he monitored the bearings the rest of the way in. Arriving on time and on budget, he pointed out that the bearings hadn't been touched and the surviving tire was defective. He babied the load all the way here. I seriously doubt anybody other than him would have made it. Thanks Michael!!!!
