Turf Shippind d.b.a. Stingray Shippers Complaints - Customers BEWARE!

WARNING! Do not use this company. They do not have D.O.T. or M.C. numbers or Cargo Insurance. Please, i repeat please ask for proof if you ship with anyone. If the driver he hires or broker is pulled over without these valuable credentials your valuable toys can be impounded by law enforcement and will only be relinquished after stiff penalties and the cost and expenses of either picking the product up in another part of the country or hiring another shipping company.

You can type the name of his companies in any search engine along with the owners name in which there are several of those too (Dave Fred, David Fred, David Stacey, Richard Fred, Richard Stacey, and the list goes on) you will find numerous scenarios from stolen bikes in New Mexico to damaged cargo that he has never remunerated their costs. Lets not forget the many complaints on line by drivers that he has hired only to leave them stranded in various parts of the country along with no monetary payments to get them home. You can check out the uship account DaveFred surf and turf shipping and it is still posted with a banner on the top of the screen stating that this member has been banned and apparently for brokering loads. The only thing is that he is in fact still running a business out of the basement of his home under the name stingray transport on Uship and Stingrayshippers.com.

He has already filed chapter 7 bankruptcy on personal assets including another company he apparently owned in which was a landscaping company according to court documents.

He owns a transportation company and according to documents he doesn't have a license as its been revoked by the state of Tennessee due to nonpayment of Child Support. "Sounds like a real winner"!

If anyone is trying to have him served with papers by the court his other address is 642 lynn court, Maryville, TN and 865-309-6984 and I hope this review of this business will prevent anyone from getting burned by this individual and his dirty ways of doing business.

Here are a few reviews directly taken from Uships Website:

This was a complete nightmare. Dave sent a driver to pick up my brand new KTM 450 that was a gift for my son. The driver secured the bike and left. I was careful to make sure that I used a company with insurance. The bike was to be delivered to Colorado a few weeks later. I received a call the day after delivery was supposed to take place and was informed that Dave had lost my bike in Albuquerque, NM and the best part was that he was uninsured! I am still without a bike and $8500.....

DO NOT USE! IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS HE WILL NOT CONTACT YOU! DAVEFRED OWES MYSELF THOUSANDS IN DAMAGES-HAD 2 UNITS SHIPPED WITH DAVEFRED, ONE WAS STOLEN AND DAMAGED AND THE OTHER WAS DAMAGED IN ROUTE. HE CLAIMS TO HAVE INSURANCE BUT BOTH TIMES HIS COMPANY WOULD NOT FIX EITHER OF MY UNITS. DO NOT USE IF YOU NEED SOMETHING OF VALUE SHIPPED- TAKE MY ADVICE AND SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY TO GET IT DONE RIGHT. HAVE REFERENCES AND PICTURES. BUYER BEWARE!

Driver was great. Boat showed up in great shape on time. Repeated requests for insurance info was ignored. (Before and after delivery) Obviously has no policy, so your only recourse is out of state court appearances if there is a "problem". (Good luck) Just beware not to give pick up location and contact info or they will pick up item without notification and stop communication.(Seems to work well for them)

Driver is very polite but company hard to communicate failing to update status and reply email. My bike was delivered on a pickup trucks it wasn't professional at all. Their bid is reasonable cheap but Will not use them again.
Very poor communication!!! !!! Will not use again!!!!

CAUTION! - DAVE FRED DOES NOT HAVE INSURANCE! - In any incidence when there has been damage or even THEFT of vehicles while in his possession, he has been completely negligent, irresponsible and uncooperative. - He is being investigated my the Department of Transportation and Better Business Bureau - He has a recent history of bankruptcy - His voice mail is often full, he ignores phone calls - ongoing BAD BUSINESS
