  1. sounds good bonniemac0223@yahoo.com 727-484-4815 I am currently in Spring Hill FL but home is Mooresville NC. I have been spending more time here in FL lately
  2. Great pictures! Your comments about Brokers has merit but that is not how I did business. I think being a carrier for so many years and then becoming a broker I came in knowing what it took for a carrier to survive and I did my best to always get them the best rate possible. The biggest problem for me was trying to compete with the scum brokers and when I wasn't doing that I was constantly defending my honor as a broker. It is not an easy business to be in when 90 % of them suck. As for the "you people" stuff - those are the "damn broker" type. I was never one of those. I alw
  3. I haven't posted in awhile but still get notifications from here. I spent over 15 years in the business as a carrier and broker and was very good at what I did. I took a lot of pride in my job as a broker but was constantly having to defend myself because of all the companies that were just in it to collect their part of the payment and didn't give a darn if the job got done or not. I have always taken pride in our company and gave each customer 100%. Unfortunately, my health has taken a turn for the worse and I am no longer able to work. It killed me to shut the doors on my bu
  4. Ted how did you find that broker that took your money and never transported your car? My guess is you went online and went to a website that is a quote collector site, they sold your quote to other companies that have to buy leads, and they bid it at a price they knew would get you but a price that there wasn't a chance in hell they could move it for. They give all us legitimate companies a bad name. There are QUOTE COLLECTOR BROKERS and then there are LEGITIMATE AUTO TRANSPORT BROKERS. Quick way to tell the difference is to look at the URL for the website you are at before requesting a qu
  5. Shaking my head. I rest my case. PLEASE click on this link! Once you get there go up top and look at the web address. This is one of those clearing house bullcrap sites that entices you to get a quote from them and then they sell that request to a minimum of 10 other companies for a minimum of 1.00 each. You will be bombarded and harassed and pressured and promised the world if you go with them right now..blah, blah, blah. Would someone in here please follow through getting a quote from this company so I can finally convince you that I know what I am talking about. Just one more tip for
  6. I agree ClickClack - don't EVER go to one of those sights that offer 10 quotes because they are just a clearing house so to speak. They are paid to get quote requests and then they sell those to at least 10 different companies and those companies will normally bombard you. Their only interest is getting your deposit and their job is done and then it is up to the company to get it done for that low ball bid. It's a racket. Ready Auto Transport is a major auto transport broker. If you go to their website (see the link below) you can get an instant quote right there. I would reco
  7. I had their name and put them on my do not load list but think their name should not be shared at this time. My point with the photo was that these priceless cars were parked and left in a truck stop parking lot and left unattended. Even if this carrier was paid to haul them in an open trailer this is inappropriate to do with a customer's car, in my opinion. It isn't illegal but if those were my cars sitting there I would be ticked off. As for DAS, you should check their status. They are going down fast. All my carriers sign a contract giving me permission to withhol
  8. One more thing to mention here - DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers), the huge broker/carrier that was mentioned above - be forewarned, they have taken a major turn for the worse. Bigger is NOT always better. http://www.transportreviews.com/company/Dependable-Auto-ShippersThey have had over 50 complaints filed against them in the last month on Central Dispatch and I have been informed that their bond has long been depleted by carriers that have not been paid. So be careful. It is always good to come here and ask people who they have used or look up the ones (like me) that claim to be good. Che
  9. I absolutely NEVER pay my carriers when they pick up a vehicle. If you do that you really DO lose control. It is in my contract with all my carriers (who I screen well) that I will withhold their pay until all damage claims are paid if any. With the high deductibles that some carriers have on their cargo insurance policies that is the only leverage I have to make sure that deductible gets covered. Not to mention that if you pay them up front they have no incentive to get the job done on time. I also have a clause in my contract that I will deduct a percentage of their pay if they are late
  10. I beg to differ. Look at the cars in that photo. They were LEFT in the parking lot in the rain period and there is no way anyone in their right mind would have shipped those vehicles in an open trailer. I DID NOT get the picture from the internet. I don't need to pump my business up on here. I do just fine thank you and have many references to back that up. My interest here is only to put facts out there and let the customer decide what is best for them. If they know a carrier and have done their homework, then go for it. If they don't, then find a good broker (like me - small company w
  11. Matt, I agree wholeheartedly! If you KNOW a carrier and have good experience with them then that is the way to go. If you DON'T know a carrier and need your vehicle moved and are looking blind, THEN you want to look for a company like mine that IS a broker but like Matt, my company is small and I am responsible for every car moved so I am going to make sure to match you with a carrier that I have had experience with and has an opening going your way. Stay away from the big companies. Once I match you with a carrier and you have a good experience with them I fully expect that you will call
  12. Jim, I smiled at your last two sentences. My husband hauls high end enclosed vehicles and he would do exactly that. He is a rare bird and takes pride in what he does. As a broker, when I get a vehicle like yours to move I go straight to my best enclosed carriers that handle white glove enclosed freight. I wish I could get them to let my husband be the driver on any of my loads but I know the rest of their drivers are good. The other thing to watch for when getting a quote for an enclosed transport is to know whether you are getting a "hard side" trailer or a "soft side". They are both co
  13. I'm not saying if you go with me everything would be perfect but you can bet your butt that I am going to work hard at making sure your experience with our company is a good one because I am not a large conglomerate. I am a decent sized broker who still answers the phone and my livelihood depends on my name and my rating. That is why I protect my 5 Star rating with my life...because it is. I don't hide anything and even send you a link with your quote so you can check us out at TransportReviews.com, which is the main go-to review site for carriers and brokers. Here is the link I send all m
  14. I HIGHLY disagree with using a carrier over a broker! I have been a carrier since 1997 and an auto transport broker for 5 years. Unless you are skilled in detective work or know your carrier personally you are taking a HUGE risk hiring a carrier. As a broker it is my job to protect my customers from putting their priceless vehicles on any transporter without first checking that their licensing is current, that they have adequate insurance to cover ALL the cars they are transporting, that their safety rating is at 90 or above with DOT, and that they do not have a negative performance rating w
