I hear you, and have seen the same thing back when I used to haul.
Had a well respected distributor in my hometown that heard I made trip out west. He wanted me to haul some stuff for him. I said sure as I was usually empty going out.
He called again and asked when my next trip was He said he would give me a key, just come in and load it up.
As we ended the conversation, I told him we had never discussed price. He about crawled down my throat. He said, "you have the nerve to charge me for hauling this stuff when you are going out there anyway? It does not weigh that much, how about $50 for fuel?"
Now here is the real problem, few people believe that he is a crook because he has a "good name" in town.
I hope he got his goods move 1,500 miles for $50. I would not haul helium that cheap, and I don't think it weights very much either.
I just let it go. But never judge a book by it's reputation. LOL
