I chased down and bought a nice 56 post up in Mass. and I hired a transport company to delivery it to me in Okla. Well after a week and 1/2 they still dont have it on a truck!! They said the pipes were lower than 4 inches so they could not drive it up on to a regular transport. Now they have another division they have turned it over to that uses low boys etc. to haul with. This is crazy...get some bailing wire and tie up the pipe. They told me the drivers just wont do that so I have to wait. I even paid an extra $250 to get the car here by the sixteenth so I could go to an annual show. Anyone in Mass. have some bailing wire and willing to help?

Well they are telling me now it is the headers that are to low. They must be at least 4" off the ground.

pump up the front tires, get the seller to put some taller tires on it, and ask for a refund on that "extra $250.00 to get it by the 16th". !!

I had to wait about a month for my 55 to get here from Montana. Carriers just don't go from the North pole to the South pole everyday. As my old uncle used to say "Patience jack***, Patience"! It makes you anticipate it coming home more than ever.

How did they get it from Mass to Md. Can't they use the same trailer to bring it to you? :confused0006::confused0006:
