Heavy Haul job done from Louisiana to Michigan
The broker spoke with the customer who was dealing with some personal financial situation and needed help removing his 2008 Keystone Raptor Travel. The trailer was picked up in Lake Charles, Lousiana, 70629, and was delivered to a friend of the customer in Lansing, Michigan, 48001. The Travel Trailer was 4 feet long, 8ft wide, 11ft high, and weighed 16,000 lbs. The broker was very understanding and quoted the customer a fair price of $895- even though the customer was an elderly person and had some difficulties using the computer to store his credit card information for payment we were still able to maneuver some things around to get the job done correctly and on time.
