Yes, you are able to charge the total amount of your car shipment on your credit card. There is an additional $100 fee per vehicle that we pass along to the carriers for this payment process. There are actually a couple of reasons that carriers prefer the standard (certified funds) method of payment. The majority of the carriers we work with are owner-operators. This means they are a one-person operation and don’t have a formal office with a billing department or a way to easily handle receivables. This makes the additional paperwork that comes with a billing shipment difficult for them to process. The other reason that carriers prefer the COD payment method is to cover on the road expenses. Drivers tend to use the payments they collect to pay for their every day expenses like fuel. When they pay for fuel with cash they receive a discount, and this adds up to a very large amount over time. If you would like more information about this please check out our blog.
