Hi NatGertler, I saw your revisions to this page. There's a general dearth of information about the auto transport industry that isn't either naked self-promotion, or lumped in with the rest of trucking/home moving.

I tried to find some neutral sources on broker fraud. The best I could do so far is link to a FMCSA consumer advisory that says there has been a large increase in complaints against fraudulent brokers in recent years. Unfortunately, the document doesn't state actual numbers, and I have been unable to find hard numbers so far, since the FMCSA doesn't appear to publicize fine-grained data about auto transport broker fraud or complaints.

The interview with the auto transport company CEO - clearly not a neutral source, but it's pretty thorough & gives the industry's view of the new regulations. Other pages I've found that go into the topic, such as http://www.autosintransit.com/unheralded-truth-auto-transport-brokers/ , are just straight-up ad copy. Do you think it's possible to use the interview in an NPOV way? Ixat (talk) 21:30, 22 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Deletion of citation 6 and 15

edit

I made the following changes 1) removed the 2nd citation under chapter "2012 regulations" the link brings you to a dead web page and this part is already cited by citation 5.

2) I removed part of the third paragraph the chapter industry reactions because the citation (citation 15) is dead and its cited using a press release.

Globalize

edit

This article only discusses auto transport brokers in the USA. Presumably they also exist in other countries. Please expand the article to cover this. Verbcatcher (talk) 18:52, 18 June 2015 (UTC)Reply
