TransportReviews.com is a Disgrace

I just read the New York TImes article (linked below) on a site called TransportReviews.com that offers reviews of car transport companies. These companies will transport your car from one part of the country to another for you if you don’t feel like driving it yourself.

There is a huge problem with this site. You can post a record of your bad experience with a particular company, but that company can then post a reply disputing your version of events and even calling you a liar, and you don’t get a chance to reply or otherwise set the record straight. The transport company always gets the last word.

It’s no surprise that the TransportReviews.com site makes all its money from the transport companies it lists on the site. This site’s practices are disgraceful. I don’t know if this site is breaking any laws but it certainly shouldn’t be a trusted source of information.
