    I've moved several times and the best experience I've had was with Ellis Moving & Storage in Nashville, TN.
    Moved from Tennessee to Beijing China. My goods arrived in perfect condition and no damages at all. The Chinese household goods movers made the final delivery to my home and then refused a tip when the delivery was complete.

    Easy to verify today. Text a picture to verify. Don't commit a truck to a load until they have the proper stickers on the door.
    You don't need as many mailbox stickers today to make it legal. haha


    Sure sounds like double brokered.

    Sounds like you want to eliminate the broker.

    No, I’m the broker. I just want to eliminate double-brokering. Paying the delivering carrier directly should discourage the carrier that booked the load with me (but didn’t haul it) to do it again.

    Get used to it, I think in the future, we'll see a lot more of this. Double brokering is nothing new, the private car hauling industry has done it for years. The company you book may or may not be the one delivering the product. It's logistics. It's no longer profitable to run a truck to the middle of nowhere for 1 car, or 1 pallet. So they team up and whoever is going that way, gets the freight. Not sure what the problem is, as long as you got the freight, who cares who pulls it in?

    If you're a broker why aren't you reporting to carrier411 or others?
    How did you qualify the carrier to begin with?
     
    JimmyTwoTimes, 86scotty, PPDCT and 2 others Thank this.

    I misunderstood the situation. Have the driver send a picture before loading and a pin drop. You can verify all the required identifiers on the truck.
    Good luck.
     
    PPDCT Thanks this.

    If they're a new double broker, the rest of us would like to know who it is.
