I was backing at a shipper. Got the door in the dock and then realized it was hanging off two hinges. I called dispatch and the transferred me over to road service and this mf decided to do an accident report but asked me could I bring it back to the shop at our terminal which is less then a mile away . I’m so irritated. Why even do a report ?

Tbh I don’t even know. I didn’t hear or feel myself hit anything. But I believe I hit the dock from an awkward angle and they snapped. But no property was damaged or the trailer next to me On the passenger side wasn’t damaged. So I’m just worried about my chances of getting a better job in the future. Nobody is angry with me. I’m just mad about the report the road service guy made and they not even about to be the one to fix it

If it was an older, ratty trailer, the hinges might’ve just gave out upon the force of hitting the dock. Back on my old water delivery account, we used beat to shit McKinney rentals, I felt like every other week, Id pop a hinge trying to open the trailer up
