“Auto Transport Broker” a Business Opportunity!
Your life, on your terms.
Building a business by becoming a nationwide auto transport broker is a lucrative proposition. People no longer drive a U-Haul truck; pulling their car behind them.
Today it’s not uncommon for people to purchase a car in Florida when they live in California and have it shipped cross country. But the question becomes, “who is shipping the vehicles”?
When people ship their car using an auto transport broker it accomplishes two things. First it relieves a lot of stress for the customer. Secondly, the transport broker business makes money.
By providing quality customer service you set yourself apart from other brokers. Not only will your customer love you, they will refer their friends to you.
Who is shipping the cars?
Owning and operating your own business is work. Building an auto transport brokerage is not for the faint of heart. It is not for the person who prefers a 9 to 5 job.
Set office hours vary by the individual business. We’ve found that 7 AM to 5 PM works best for our company. Being able to serve clients including the dispatch offices and truckers is crucial. Remember, truck drivers run 11 hour days, 7 days a week. Being flexible is key to your success.
If you are a hard worker, you can build a solid, successful business. If you like a competitive environment, nationwide auto transport may be for you.
If working with people of varying backgrounds, experience and temperament is a challenge for you; this “auto transport broker business opportunity” may not be for you.
However; if you have a competitive spirit you will thrive in the auto transport business environment. Getting up early in the morning gives your business a head start…it’s the best time of the day. Remember as in any competition, you’ve got to be on top of your game to play with the big boys. Showing up early is one of those key elements you will want in your winning arsenal.
As a broker you will be working with all different sorts of people, this makes it fun. Imagine having a boss you love working with…you will have lots of them. Then, imagine having a boss you don’t like working with…you’ll have those, too. But, you get to choose if you want to work with them or not. Even if they choose to work with you and you don’t necessarily like it…once the car is moved, they are served and you can move on
Building your own auto transport brokerage covers all the facets of the work place. You will serve people over the phone giving them free quotes, via the internet and email, sometimes by U.S. mail and even sometimes in person. The diversity is exciting and helps keep you on top of your game.
Logistics of building an auto transport business…
U.S. Department of Transportation laws regulate the physical area you can work in. Interstate and intrastate transports fall under this scope of limitations.
You must be licensed and bonded. There are various methods of securing your bond; as well as various companies to work with. Our experience has shown some are superior to others.
There are resources to assist with international shipping, border crossing and all paperwork. We can assist you with all of these details. By taking the work off of you and shortening your learning curve everything flows beautifully.
The majority of business is usually U.S. interstate transports. Hawaii and Alaska are among popular shipping destinations at certain times of the year.
Our company has experience in shipping to foreign locations such as Russia, the United Kingdom, Australia, Puerto Rico and Panama.
Part of the excitement of the “auto transport broker business opportunity” is the continual learning process. No two shipments are identical. It is the same with your clients, each one has unique needs and circumstances.
What does the auto transport broker ship?
As a nationwide auto transport broker you will arrange for the shipping of many types of vehicles. This may include automobiles; sedans, pick-up trucks, SUV’s (sport utility vehicles), mini vans and motorcycles.
On occasion you might arrange shipping for boats, trailers and various types of equipment. We’ve shipped everything from commercial riding lawn mowers to Zamboni’s, which are ice rink grooming machines.
So, if you get excited by continually learning and improving your customer service skills; brokering may be for you. If it is a challenge you welcome, brokering may be just the business opportunity for you, too.
As with any business opportunity, auto transport brokering is what you make of it. Hard work, love of serving the public, and scheduling your own work time may make auto transport brokering just the business opportunity for you.
