So I did a load over a year ago with pt brokers. I delivered their load on time the place I delivered to had either a new guy or someone from a different department and wouldn't unload till am. I called Wade from pt brokers was on phone with him back and forth over 3 hours he said keep my time they would pay 100 an hour for detention!!! Fighting for over a year and then sends 450 and tells Me he can not work with me no more. Watch out guy pt brokers don't stand behind what they say!!!!

Watch out for Bad receivers more than bad brokers has been a problem for years. Many receivers blame a broker and some times it’s not the broker some times it is. Me opinion is more BAD receivers than bad brokers! If we stand together against bad receivers and not haul into them then the brokers have more to stand on to help the carriers. But if we keep hauling in to the bad receiver the broker will always find a truck for them. If we find a receiver that continues to use us for storage and not want to pay detintion that’s a problem receiver.

Remember when they said the ELD would force everyone to get their act together? None of those players spoke up and opposed the mandate, shippers, receivers, brokers, etc, but now there is a bill that would require hourly pay with overtime for the company drivers and suddenly their circling the wagons?

Sorry most places don't even offer that pay .pt is the only one I know of that even tries. I have nothing but good to say about pt Brokers. Like the one comment it's not the broker it's the receiver and if you go there again for someone else prob won't get anymore than that either can't expect the brokers to pay out of their pocket.
