Our company is competing with Central Dispatch . I would be very interested in receiving a reply about what are your likes and dislike are about Central. For that matter anyone out there feel free to reply.

I agree Central helps much less than selling your self

I've only been in bussiness for a year from what I hear its not worth getting a twic cause you sit around at the ports for hours and don't get paid for it. There is plenty other cars out there you can make just as much money and keep the tires moving. Hope this helps good luck!!

We are having trouble finding affordable commercial auto and cargo insurance .

Can anyone please point us in the right direction.

Tried progressive and they couldnt quote--only 500 mile radius.
tried independent agent and quote for both was 10,000 a year--ridiculous!

help please :)

OOIDA is your best bet. You have to join for a small fee but you get a group rate. Call them first.

underworked car hauler in Swainsboro, Georgia said: Although an owner operator will make considerably more than a driver ! but the o/o has more risk involved, but then again a good sriver will limit that.

That is really not the case anymore. Company drivers are making between 70,000 and 80,000 per year, full benefits, three weeks paid vacation, and ten paid holidays. Good luck ever clearing that as an owner operator with gas over four dollars per gallon.

Rod in Arlington, Texas said: The insurance company may not "hold you to it" (the 500 mile radius) but have an accident outside that radius and you have not notified them you were going outside of it, and see how fast they deny your claim. Always check with your agent if you have to go outside your covered radius.

DOT will hold you to it. They check to make sure you have valid insurance any time you pull in a weight station and get an inspection. If you are hauling across state lines expect to be pulled in a weight station every 7-14 days. If you do not have valid insurance the truck will be tagged and can not move until the situation is resolved. DOT will also fine you to death in the meantime.

Freight in the Midwest does tend to pay better than other areas like Florida. Most of the Midwest is flat so you are not burning through gas as quickly as in the western states like Colorado. You can not make a blanket statement about profitablity for the entire country. Freight rates are regional.

Thought about it, then did the math in Tallahassee, Florida said: For those looking to get into car hauling. I saw a post that said .40 to .60 cents per mile. Lets to the math. Lets look at 400 Miles at a conservative 15mpg with a 26 gallon tank. At .40 cents you will make $160 every 400 miles, but wait, you have to fill up at 400. So 26 times $3.80 equals $98.80. Congrats, at 55MPH you drove for 7.5 hours and made $60.19. That works out to be 8 dollars an hour. So lets say you drive for 16 hours and stop for 8. Some guys will say "I never stop for 8 hours" just total up everytime you stop to eat or use the bathroom, it adds up. If you drive for 16 you stand to make $120.38. If you eat sandwiches and sleep in you truck you may be able to afford a place to live and truck maintenance. I would forget about supporting anyone else on this salary. Lets not forget about taxes and insurance .

The more cars you can haul at once the more money you will make. If you are the guy trying to haul cars behind your 2004 chevy, dodge, ford you may want to look at staying home and finding an 8.00/ hr job and have more money to spend.

DOT requires that a driver stop for ten hours each day so the maximum you can legally run is 14 hours in a 24 hour period. I am not disagreeing with your math it is pretty accurate.

I was thinking of getting into the hotshot business and going w/ CDL, DOT, etc., but talking to a few folks that drive semis they tell enough horror stories to scare anybody away. I can use my Dodge 3/4HD Mega Cab 4WD w/ 7800 GVWR, which has handled boats up to 36 foot w/o blinking, and buy a, say, 34 ft flatbed w/ winch to haul 2 cars. Can I use this to haul interstate w/o CDL, DOT, etc.??? Or does any commercially used vehicle, like off of U-Ship, have to have DOT, etc.? I'm retired now and just wanted to do this part-time to have something to do, at least at first to see how it flies. Thanks!

You are full of sh#t. 8 loads a day. Where are you going a block away.you probably haul for the auction there in indy.which by the way know most of the auctioners around there, so quit bs everyone.You are a wanna be! They dont pay that kind of money.
40.00 per car your full of sh$t.

This is whats wrong with people, 15 miles to the gallon.Where in the hell did you come up with this figure.You will be lucky to get 8 to10 miles to the gallon.
Plain and simple THERE IS NO MONEY IN CARHAULING!
TOO MANY PEOPLE DOING IT FOR NOTHING!
YOU will be lucky to get 40 cents to 75 cents per car.
Diesel at 4.00 plus per gallon, insurance will eat you alive.
We have 44 years in the business and get cheap insurance.
But there still is no money in this.Your better off to drive for someone and let them worry about expenses.Central dispatch is the leading player in car freight and they are cheaper than dirt.Just look on uship and see what people ship cars for.
Im just trying to save you a lot of bs in the end.
Doesn't matter to me what you do.But been there done that.

My husband and I have been researching a car hauling business and came across this website. He has the CDL and I would do the office work. It's hard to find how much is to be made in this business to use for our business plan. Reading some posts is very discouraging. Is it that bad? Cars still need to move. The country still has to keep running. Doing the math it would make sense to charge a minimum of 1.1/mile. We will do this right, we don't want to just buy a truck and start diving. He can do maintance on the vehicle as well. So what is the best rate to charge?

We are paying $1.60 per mile on full load of Trailers normally Enclosed cargo trailers but also utility and dump trailers. The Enclosed trailers are from Ga and go to the northeast. Have 3-4 loads per week at this point and growing. Try and use regular haulers when possible also use some fillin's when needed. The Haulers are picking loads of 3 cars going south and getting $1500 - $2200 on the south bound runs and on average are happy. My average runs are 1100 miles. Yes there is money to be made keep under 26000# so you don,t need IFTA or Apportion plates.

I have work for 102" wide wedge trailers with center rail. We need to add a couple more transporters. We have all you need running North and you will find returns on Central and why pay a broker as Central Dispatch you get the Paperwork Only thing I find brokers do is Lie to customers to get the loads and let the driver deal with the customer on delivery.
