I"m in my 35th year in the trucking business and have done a number of hauls from this site. First and foremost...any hauler worth his salt doesnt need a deposit. The only time I have ever asked for a deposit is from people who have booked a haul in the past and backed out for whatever reason. Secondly, get their DOT number and insurance info and do your due diligence on both items. No DOT number or insurance? DO NOT USE THEM....PERIOD!!! Be totally honest with them about locations of pickup and delivery points...not referencing the next closest town in order to try to save yourself loaded miles (Dont ask me how I know this trick). Have a full understanding between you and the hauler as to when it will be picked up and delivered and if it will be coming to you direct or via somewhere else and if hauler will be hauling it himslef personally or hiring a subcontractor to do it. I always tell customers that seem wary to have the pickup contact call them and verify that I am legitimate and professional BEFORE I load their prized item. Lastly, have the agreed amount ready in CASH when hauler arrives with tractor. Pay him as he unchains the tractor. This has always worked for me.
