A warning to all...
I quoted £350 for a job posted by Tiger Express Despatch for a run from Edinburgh-Carlisle-Aberdeen and got a call from Dave Brook who is I assume the owner of this company. I collected 20 or so boxes from Edinburgh and headed to Carlisle where I had arranged to meet Mr Brooks on the phone , I called him on nearing Carlisle and he asked if I could maybe meet him further down as he was unsure and had never been this far up country before or a long time ago, I said ok and told him that it would cost him extra 60mile round trip further on.
Met up with him at Tebay truckstop and swapped loads, asked him about payment and he said "invoice me and I will sort it when I get back" I think ok fine i will do that guy seems ok at face value.
Now it looks like I have been stitched up, the phone number on here and the number he used to contact me initially are all either switched off or unavailable, I had contact with him but not any longer so I am down my time and fuel costs. It would be nice to know if any one who has undertaken jobs he has posted has been paid by him....I doubt i will see this money.
 No threats on here please, and no defamatory comments. [/edit]
