    You're right. I was talking to my insurence guy today and he says the same thing. It would'nt be any advantage as the co. I lease to would want to use their own.

    One hour authority told us that we could get our authority in 10 - 14 days, so we put In the application in since Sept 30th 15 and today is Oct 16th and still we haven't received it yet. I called this morning, the guy pick up the phone, I explained my concern he said he doesn't control the process and hand up the phone on me. We could have planed for longer processing time. Than giving us false info.

    If you want an authority that's not just general freight it can take longer as the DOT has to check other details. I think HHG took us 3 months to get or so but it might have been at a busy time. HHG requires an arbitration system be set up and a bunch of other crap so I think that's why it takes longer.

    We only apply for general freight, i don't think that is an excuse for handing up phone in your customers ear either (2x) they are unprofessional. My authority is active since the 21st but they haven't send my IFTA/ IRP application in yet and also since two days ago, they told me that they were going to send me receipt for my UCR so I can get my pre-pass, i haven't received it yet today is 10/23/2015. How can two work together if they don't communicate ? They are terrible, not a good company to used/ do business with. Are they what they say they are? helping to make processed easy in your opinion?

    It amazes me how many people are willing to pay some random company to fill out a few pages of paperwork. It's all very basic stuff that my seven year old could do.

    You can do the process yourself in less than a half hour and save the money. I had mine active in 3 weeks. However, think this through carefully, of all the people who go active, only about 10% are still active a year later.

    I agree, but is just the matter of wanting to have everything right. If a person pay for services, you have to delivered what you promise.

    You give them all the same information they enter so it comes out the same whether you do it or them.
