    We are currently using GetLoaded as a load board, in the last to weeks the site has gone down 3 times. When we call they say they are working on it. Today I got really upset because shy do they have to "fix it" during business hours when you try to make calls?

    Any suggestions of any other good reliable load boards you are using?

    Thanks!

    Internet Truckstop and MembersEdge thru OOIDA. Regardless of reliability I used getloaded and these two are much better. Also if you haul for LS they have one of the better ones allowing you to get emails with the rate when load is posted.

    I noticed on get loaded's demo board they have an area that you could check type of trailer to search specific loads for only. That section had power only, and the members edge and others do not have this option.

    Watch out for Getloaded. They do not have an internal credit department like The Internet Truckstop and rely on outside sources. If you compare credit ratings between the two you will see all the dead beat brokers who have complaints and many days to pay on Getloaded with a good credit rating.

    We use ITS too. I like it although it really bogs my laptop down sometimes. Lol maybe I just need a better laptop. We used Real Time Freight before too. We got a couple loads off it but found it just wasn't worth the $300 a year so we cancelled it.

    I use ITS, its a little "clunky" on my laptop as well. I've had good luck with it, but one thing I hate about it is that the brokers can "see" when you're searching and then call you up to pitch loads to you. Very annoying. Other than that its nice, has a lot of useful features.

    Landstar.

    Are you guys using the new "ITS2" or the "ITS Classic?" I'm still using the Classic page-I use a netbook in the truck, and ITS2 is basically useless on it, and requires more bandwidth. I've also been using it from my phone a lot lately, and ITS2 is all but unnavigable on it. I also feel like I get less cold calls using the Classic view vs. ITS2.
