Auto Transport Directory: Carriers & Brokers
While it’s not always easy to determine which company is a carrier and which is a broker, both can arrange car shipping on your behalf. The primary difference is that brokers simply arrange for transport, while carriers are the ones actually handling the physical delivery. There is not a decided advantage to using a carrier over a broker, other than your own preference. (It should be noted that many companies operate as both a broker and a carrier.)
In the directory below, you’ll find a brief description of company services and history, as well motor carrier and U.S. Department of Transportation license numbers, which can be used to do further research. By entering this information into the FMCSA Company Snapshot database, you’ll be able to find a wealth of information, from company safety history to current operating authority.
