    Best trailer tires for car haulers?

    I run 17.5s due to being enclosed and the only brand that holds up in all elements is the continental HTL2, Michelin is second and everything else is trash. Don’t go cheap here in this area it won’t pay off…

    Open and enclosed best setups

    Now ive never run a 9/10 car hauler because i like the space of a bigger sleeper, but if i were to run open, the 8 car from cottrell can really move a lot of weight. Ive seen those haul 5 dually trucks with one car. Enclosed, the biggest issue ive had with kentucky trailers and all of the older...

    What to do when a client files a claim after they've signed off on your BOL?

    So i had a guy one time that filed a claim TWO WEEKS after receiving his car, signed off on my BOL, all clean and good there. Needless to say it didnt get very far with insurance as it's almost impossible to prove damages occurred in transport when he didnt notate it on delivery. Just an FYI for...

    Difficult brokers

    I can sort of see why they do it because 75% of the truckers actually running the rigs don’t know much English and they aren’t the best communicators with regards to timing. They just show up unannounced at midnight to drop off your car. But they need to be able to discern who’s actually...

    Stop hauling cheap freight!

    People always seem to point the finger at the brokers, the clients being cheap, really guys were the ones taking these loads so we need to stop taking such cheap freight from places like florida. Fuel is 5 dollars a gallon here, you cannot afford to run under 3.50/mile loaded, period!

    Difficult brokers

    Difficult brokers in getting loads from, sherpa auto transport and their need to get an insurance certificate almost every single time you get a load. As if you drop insurance almost weekly and are running illegally. All they have to do is go on FMCSA SAFER and look up your carrier to see if you...

    Difficult brokers

    Ill kick this conversation off here.. list off any brokers you have had difficulties with in getting loads, problems in transit, etc. Number one most annoying for me would be montway's VIP service, and the endless calls they make every single day to check up on where you are, what you're doing...
