    Thought i'd pop in and ask real quick if anyone is hauling in Oregon/Washington... It is COMPLETELY dead right now... as of January 1st 2020, I am struggling to find absolutely anything worth leaving the house for.

    $150 for a non-runner from Eugene to Seattle? No thank you. I'm usually able to find 3 cars to run up to Seattle from the Portland-Eugene area and back at least twice a week. Not anymore.

    Using all the same sites... Central, RunBuggy, CarsArrive, etc.
    Yes, I am handing out business cards and dressing professional arriving with new and clean equipment.

    Is it just super slow this time of year or has work sourcing shifted to alternative networks?

    Honestly, it actually has... a little. Over the past week I've been noticing a nice little surge of loads.

    In the past, there were plentiful loads coming out of the Eugene and Woodburn auctions going to the Seattle area. That has almost been dead since beginning of January but slowly coming back to life. Who knows for how long, though?

    I've heard March is when it starts to pick-up and go full bloom in spring/summer.

    I have heard that is a tough part of the country to survive in just doing cars.

    Im out here. Im Not a car -hauler,but I think maybe part of the problem is : Cars sell Dirt Cheap on Offer Up. Theres 100's of Used BMW,Infinity,Nissans,Toyota for under 7K. Sure some have some miles,but Most look New. People out here Sell cheap like a Dodge Charger for 8k with 90k on it or 2006 BMW for 3500. JMO
