    You can load most dry van loads on reefers. Change your selection on DAT to VR van or reefer

    You would need to fuel the reefer up when done with it but there isn’t a way to my knowledge that they could tell if reefer is running or not. Is the reefer working? Did you haul a reefer load or just in a reefer trailer?

    Maybe something is wrong with the unit, or it needs serviced at a certain amount of hours.

    They may have noted the unit hours - just a hint.

    Yes its working i delivered a load with it to NC. I just find it stupid when broker add the line the reefer can not be used during load out. Only as a van.

    Then that is what needs to be done. You agreed to using it only as a van so keep looking you will find something.

    Or the guys knows how things can go quickly south, and the reefer load back gets turned into a week long fiasco and now has another 200 hours on the unit.

    The broker is paying you for the load. You want to be paid so you follow their agreement. You could call them and ask if you could use the reefer and if they say yes I would get it in writing. Otherwise I’d keep looking.
