I agree. I used signed up to test it out and looked for three days, didn't find anything usefull or worth while and they still charged me for an entire month. I have been going rounds with them to get my money back.

Tell your bank you are disputing the transaction and they should at least get you a credit until the matter is settled. They should cooperate more with the bank then you.

They were charging a credit card of ours that was cancelled several months ago.

Wonder how they got paid?

Now I'm even more confused! Granted, I'm very new to the trucking industry and have had no prior experience so I'm just learning........but...I book almost all of our loads from getloaded.com. I have looked at about a half dozen other load boards and none of them seem better. So why am I confused? Your comments have me wondering if I'm hauling for less than what I could be. I know so little about this.........am I being taken advantage of because of my inexperience? Can anyone out there give me real numbers $$$$ that I can count on?

What are the loads from getloaded.com paying? Any fuel surcharges being paid? If we know the figures someone here may be able to tell if it is cheap freight.

Hey guys, just wanted to let some of you OO's we what the wife and I have been doing. We wanted more freedom to go home or just plain stop if we wanted to so we signed up at Cyber-Freight.com. We were happy with what we found on the 10 day free trial and started signing for three months at a time. We just resigned for six months. It has a lot of broker loads along with quite a few company loads. For us though, it means we can take loads and usually find others to come and go as we want. The wife usually has me somewhere to aim a day in advance. Just a heads-up for those of you who would like a little more freedom. Safe driving.

I've booked all kinds of loads from getloaded.com. Some with fuel surcharge and some not. Some from a broker and some from the shipper directly. The amount of money I've been able to negotiate completely varies with each load, but last year........ October thru December.........keep in mind I have very little history in the business............We were running 650-700 miles for $1700-$1800. Since the first of the year the same run is only offered at $1000 and I'm feeling lucky to get that. Some are so incredibly low that I've simply said "No" and a day later when my truck is still sitting empty I'm wondering if I made a mistake to say no. What's worse is that I really don't even know if I should have been expecting to be paid more than the $17-$1800 I was getting last fall. Is that a good rate for the mileage?

The best thing we can do in this industry is to " SAY NO TO CHEAP FREIGHT "
Any owner operator out there who dosn't know how much it costs them to run is looking at being out of business real fast my truck requires .79 cents per mile to run ( high maintance bills last couple of years ) so I won't pull anything for less than 1.50 PM plus fuel surcharge, loading and unloading time and any other cost associated with the trip I:E tolls lumpers ETC.

just me 1.64 worth

If you ran 700 miles and were paid $1700, that is $2.42 a mile. That sounds pretty good to me. Why the sudden drop to $1000 ($1.43 a mile)for the same load?
