Am I Dealing with an Actual Carrier or a Broker?
You must be careful. Many companies will tell you they have their own trucks and can be there on a certain day or time. Stop If that were the case, then there would be a carrier on every corner. The few that have trucks will also broker out your car because they don't have trucks in every state.
This is when customers are mislead and are being told what they want to hear vs hearing the truth. If you were able to break this down by City, State and zip codes for all USA . This would mean that any company that has there own trucks would have to have thousands of trucks and that would be impossible.
