I always have such good luck with Total Transportation drivers. Eduardo is my normal driver and I always request AM delivery and he is always able to accommodate this request, even though I know it is not guaranteed. I have worked with Total for years.

Thank you very much for the smooth delivery today to our Cerritos store! The store manager said it was the easiest delivery he has had in 3 ½ years. Thank you for the time and effort in making this go well!

I love your trucking company Total Transportation. Those guys do a great job. I have had FedEx deliver here before and there is no comparison.
