BAD SHIPPER. stay away!

just FYI for anyone looking into shipping a bike. STAY AWAY from US EXPORT TEAM LLC. his name is Dan Hirsch and he's out of Pennsylvania. and he's a complete liar. a complete lying douchebag.

first, the pickup date was back in January, in Michigan. he set the schedule and showed up TEN DAYS late. nice.

said the bike would be in Florida 3-5 days later.

on the fourth day, i called to see where he was... said he was still in Pennsylvania, but would be leaving that coming monday.

ok.

about two weeks later, i get a message from the shipper that Dan had trailer trouble and was "getting it welded". Still in Penn at this point.

now a month later, i hear that he's close- but his driver cant drive more than 450 miles a day... so i'll probably see the bike in the next 48 hours.

three days later and i get another message from the shipper that "Dan" is in the hospital with a broken hand and guess what?


the bike is still rotting in Pennsylvania in a storage shed.


so for the past 4 weeks, he's been lying about trailer trouble and delivery dates. bike hasnt moved six inches toward FL.

W... T... F....?!


now, ive been patient thru this whole thing. and i think im a pretty reasonable guy. i can work with ANY timeline- as long as there is an end to it. but enough is enough.

and get this- "DAN" says he'll refund the shipper his fee.... but he (the shipper) has to drive from Michigan to Pennsylvania to get the F R I KK I N bike back!!!

W.... T.... F ?!


holy crap! what kind of business person is this!?



sorry guys, i know i'm venting- but please, for the Love of God... do NOT hire this guy. anything you pay him, no matter how good the price- will end up x1000 in trouble, lies, and complications.

steer clear, my fellow KTM compadres.

Yea i suggestlooking into the statutes of limitation regarding property. Be sure to have all of the communications documented as well. this sounds like a case of fraud/theft. i suggest you get on this ASAP.

wow. thanks for the heads-up on that, guys. I'm the purchaser, and did not contract the shipper from the start. thus, far ive been a passive member in all this...

but no longer. gonna shake this down quick.

thanks again.

well, the bike is still not here. the shipper contacted another shipping company. they picked it up from Dan's storage shed on wednesday. i have a tracking number that says it's still in atlanta (since sunday) and that delivery is promised somewhere between the 21 and the 26th.

at least its moving. but what condiiton its in, is anyone's guess. will post again once it arrives.
