Nationwide automobile transportation company that employs its own drivers

Most car transportation companies use a dispatching network. I want to be guaranteed a price and I do not want to negotiate when the driver shows up. I want to have personal belongings in a small sedan. Is there a company that can guarantee a price despite having 150 pounds of belongings in the car?

If you don’t want to do any negotiating with the driver when he shows up, you’ll need to tell the transport company that you’re shipping 150 pounds of personal items in the car when you get quotes.

You’ll get better pricing and faster service with transport company that uses a broker/dispatching network, they usually have more trucks in more areas. Also most of the time you pay the broker and the broker pays the driver, so there is no negotiating, the broker will tell you what he (the broker) charges.
