What You Need to Know When Transporting a Vehicle Understanding the Roles of Auto Brokers Versus Carriers

Landry Transportation is an Auto Transport Broker

As a auto transport broker, we charge a fee and find the appropriate carrier for you that is licensed, bonded, and insured from our vast network of carriers that we partner with, along with access to a wide range of carriers through our national dispatch board. Together with you, we can often strategize and negotiate far better rates.

Not all brokers are created equal.

Auto Transport Carriers

Auto transport carriers do the actual work of picking up your vehicle and delivering it to your chosen destination. They are on the road full time and don’t have the time, resources, or desire to interact directly with customers.

Drivers or their dispatch managers rely on auto transport brokers such as Landry Transportation to find work.

    In addition to contacting our network of carriers that frequent your route, we post your vehicle on the National Dispatch Boards for Auto Transport.


    This presents and promotes your vehicle to every auto carrier in the country, which is a great way to find the best deals for both local and state-to-state auto transport services. The National Dispatch Board is an Open Market System


    Central Dispatch Board websites are proprietary to industry members like us only.


    This system is where all booking agents (brokers), post transport orders seeking carriers, and this is where all carriers choose the orders to fill their trucks.

    In this open market system, carriers choose the highest priced orders first, and the lowest priced order last, or not at all.

    Note: Carriers usually ignore orders posted twice by two different brokers, so it’s important to pick the right auto broker from the start!

    Landry Transportation specialists are experts at strategizing and negotiating the best possible rates.

    We start negotiations with a lesser offer to carriers seeking the most cost-effective rates.

    Then, we gradually increase the offer as needed, based on our understanding of your lead time and requirements.

    The more time you have before transporting your car, the more money you can save.

    Pick-Up

    We’ll Come To Pick Up Your Vehicle

    One of our dispatchers will collaborate with you to establish a date, time, and location for vehicle pick-up that is convenient for you. Before we ship your car, please ensure it is clean on both the inside and outside. Additionally, remove any valuables as well as loose parts or toll tags. For loading and unloading purposes, please make sure there is at least a quarter tank of gas remaining in the car.

    On the day of pickup, inspect your vehicle with the trucker to notate any pre-existing damages or other concerns. Once the inspection is complete and you’ve signed The Bill of Lading, your vehicle will be on its way to its destination.

    The Trucker Delivers Your Vehicle

    Your trucker will reach out to your destination contact the day before arrival to give them a window of what time they can expect him. He’ll also do his best to get as close to the address as possible, but please keep in mind that he has to prioritize safety and following legal traffic guidelines. Lastly, if there is a balance remaining on your shipping invoice, you may pay the trucker at that time.

    Once the trucker arrives, you and the driver will inspect the vehicle one final time. If everything looks good, then you’ll sign the Bill of Lading to accept your delivery. The driver will hand over the keys and that’s it! Shipping is more complicated with other companies, but Landry Transportation keeps it as easy as 1-2-3.
