Canadian Hauling Woes #1315636 Tue Jun 25 2019 12:28 PM

I had contracted a company to haul my non-running but rolling 1950 1/2 ton Chevrolet from Edmonton, Alberta to Rawdon, Quebec.
A price was agreed upon and they picked up my truck.
Now 8 weeks later it still isn't delivered, they tell me the truck is in Toronto and I could pick it up there (7 hour drive from Rawdon, Quebec).
Does anyone know of a company that can transport my truck from Toronto to Rawdon?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like a breach of contract to me. (A breach of contract is a failure, without legal excuse, to perform any promise that forms all or part of the contract) Is there nothing you can do legally to enforce the agreement?

Is a restoration ever finished?

I agree with Harold. A contract was made to deliver it to a specific place, not 7 hours away. They may be trying to extort more money from you (also a crime).
Talk with the RCMP and see what they say. Maybe you have a Consumer Protection Agency that can help get it pried loose.

Good Luck

After you get your truck back, please post the name (and address) of the company. Other members should be forewarned.

Sorry to read about your situation.

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 48 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Was there any payments made?

When I was researching auto transportation companies,
I recall hearing from a couple of people that legitimate auto transportation
companies don't ask for payments until the vehicle is delivered.

Hope you can get your truck with minimal distress.

This definitely is a breach of contract.

Hi! I may be in Toronto in Sept/2019 and used to haul cars from Georgia, Florida to Niagara Falls, Ontario prior to moving to BC. If you have not received your vehicle by then, I would be willing to haul it from Toronto to Rawdon via an open flat deck trailer. Just keep me posted as the date approaches (I will check the site regularly) and we can figure out a price. Thanks and have a good day!
Also-I don't get paid until your vehicle is delivered to you and you are satisfied. That's how I ran my business years ago and that's how I run it when I haul cars today.

my experience moving a running truck from CA to NM, most vehicle transporters are lying thieves that will tell you anything to get your credit card or money. Do your research, and most positive reviews are lies from the transporters themselves. Took me 3 months to find someone I felt I could trust.
