Car Hauling in Florida
Page 2 of 2
The sad part is the rates were generally better on uship for cars than what I'm seeing on Central.
Example on freight vs cars.. there is a load right now on DAT it picks up 20 miles from me goes 100 miles to Tampa. It's $300 so $3/mile in FL for freight. Meanwhile that same run on Central for a car they want to pay $50-75 off the loadboard.. It's not even worth the risk to your insurance to run that.. I mean who is gonna risk a claim on their insurance for a $50-75 load? Much less wasting your time on it.. Even if you could find 3 near by, you are loading unloading 3 cars for what $150/200 and dealing with 3 different brokers/customers ect..
I just don't get who the hell would run those loads that the brokers feel confident in listing them at those prices...Last edited: Oct 14, 2019
It is all about supply and demand. SOOOOO many drivers have gotten into the car hauling business ( used to be good rates ) here in Florida, and they run for low rates.Some are retired, just looking for a supplemental income.
The most popular routes are FL–LA, FL–NY, NJ
Less popular is FL–TX, the lowest rates are in Miami FL
Local loads at load boards are not gonna be with high rates.
I worked as a company dispatcher with several drivers
from FL and I know that.
It’s possible to get good rates for local loads in FL
but it comes with experience.
And nobody can guarantee that your investment in your
business will be successful cuz it all depends on decisions
But in my experience it’s possible to make FL based
successful car hauling company.
You just have to use the right strategy and scheme of work.
Good luck!Last edited: Nov 8, 2019 at 3:30 PM
