    Banned me from moving any freight this for them ever again this morning I had some choice words after a dispatcher told me a delivery was set for this morning it was actually tonight. By 1530 this afternoon had two different calls asking me about moving loads for them. Guess my lifetime ban ended up being for only a couple of hours.

    As much as everyone talks about TQL, you should all get together and pick a time and a date, and mass call them all at once, banning them from doing business with you any longer.

    Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk....if you're not gonna do anything about it, then talk means nothing.

    I wanna see some action!

    There's a thread on here once a week complaining about TQL's total lack of integrity. Many of us choose not to do any business with them. If more would do the same it might force them to change ways or out of business. There are so many other options out there why waste time with these shysters?

    Everyone always blaming the broker. Heck if I was a broker and a company paying $10 a mile to move freight and some dummy wanted to move it for $1 a mile more profit for me. Now if a truckstop want to sell you fuel for $1 a gallon you are not going to tell them no I will give you $3 a gallon. Its all about having a good work relationship with brokers and being professional. If you notice most will ask you your MC# before they quote you a rate or ask you to quote them a rate there is a reason for this and its not to see if you have one. They keep records and notes on carriers. That said I have never had a problem with TQL they have never tried to low ball me and I haul for the once sometimes twice a week. I read on here awhile back(cant remember who posted) find 3 or 4 brokers to work with stick with them and you will make more than you would jumping around with 20 different one in a month

    Agreed about only working with a handful of brokers.. On the other hand You're about the only person I know on here working withTQLand getting $3+ a mile on decent miles at the lower end of what you haul for. I did haul a couple of good paying loads for TQL, maybe more than a couple, as of about 6 months ago. But never really with the same agent there and not in such a manner as to the freight being something I would do on a regular basis. Got really tired of the pickup/destination switcheroo they had pulled on us more than a few times and apparently their computer either failed to tell, or they just ignored the fact that it caused us to cancel out once on a load when the confirmation came, actually that has happened more than once I think.. A major PITA dishonest thing to do.. Look at it this way... ...the less of us working TQL the easier for you to get $3 and $4 a mile we're doing you a favor lol..
