Following is a snapshot of Pavel & Sons company profile from the national dispatch boards. We hold 100% rating among other brokers and carriers.
This is Friday, and I'm trying to get my driver loaded back from Texas to Northern California. I came across a posting of (5) 2011 Toyota Camrys coming from Arlington, TX to San Jose, CA that paid $1250. That's .15 cents/mile. Typical of some dealerships to post such ridiculous rates. So I called the dealership and asked about the rate. Apparently he thinks someone will take it because in the past someone had transported his cars for $250/each out of that area. I asked him again if he's not confusing Los Angeles or some other city because the rate is quite absurd. He hung up the phone.
Made me think, who in the world would take such cheap freight? If someone can afford to take it, then they definitely don't pay for insurance, license...anything. Or this is just another dealership exploiting desperate drivers who are willing to take anything just to stay on the road. In this case, it's not even profitable to take it. Would like to hear your comments on this.

Here is a situation that happened to our company last week involving Door to Door Auto Transport Inc (7582 S. Las Vegas Blvd, # 215 Las Vegas, NV 89123, MC#: 699310). Last week, we were contracted by the broker to move a vehicle from Texas to California. The order was to be paid in cash on delivery (COD). However, when our driver arrived in California to drop off the car the customer was very surprised when the driver asked for the payment. As it turned out, the broker charged the customer the full amount upfront and then went to tell us that the customer owes us a balance on delivery. Sadly it happened over the weekend, so we could not get a hold of the broker. After numerous attempts as I started calling them on Monday, I finally got dispatch on the line yet was quickly transferred to the accounting which went right into voice-mail. As I continued calling them, they blocked my phone number from calling them altogether. We are currently working with the customer's bank to dispute the money paid by the customer as well as with the broker's bond issuer.
Let this be a word of warning to all the carriers out there, just because it is a COD, doesn't mean it is a safe and secure load. I suggest you contact the customer immediately upon receiving the dispatch sheet to verify the amount due and in what form.
Word of suggestion to our customers, please be very careful with the company you choose to ship your car. Don't let the lowest price be your choosing factor. There are numerous transport review websites that will help you make the right choice.
