Using Dubuque Vehicle Transport Companies
- Brokers & Carriers - There are two types of companies that you will find when searching online for auto transporters. The first is a broker that arranges the transport between the customer and the carrier. The second is the auto carrier--the company or person who will actually be driving the vehicle that transports your car. Dealing directly with the company who will move the car is preferable for some, while others may want the options that are available when working with a broker. Keep reading to learn more about carriers, brokers and how to tell the difference.
- MC Number - An MC number, also known as operating authority, is something that any company must have, whether they are a broker or a carrier. Operating authority may also be designated by FF# or MX#, depending on what type of operating authority is granted. A broker will have only an MC, FF, or MX number and are not required to have a USDOT# (see below). The different classifications for operating authority are mostly based on the weight and type of cargo being transported.
Look up an auto transport company by MC# or USDOT# by using the licensing and insurance portal from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
U.S. DOT Number - If a company claims to be an auto carrier, ask for the U.S. DOT#. With this, you can verify the information they provide and look them up using the link listed above. It’s important to know that some states do require a U.S. DOT number, while others do not. Click here to see a complete listing of the states that must have a USDOT# to operate legally.
