CarMax, United Road: Car Haulers Are Talking (And It’s Not Good)

CarMax: Nationwide Retailer Meets Largest Broker/Carrier

According to their Facebook page, CarMax is “the nation’s largest retailer of used cars” and their app lets you search “a nationwide inventory of over 35,000 used cars.” United Road maintains on their website that they are “leading the auto transport industry…with over three million deliveries each year.” If you multiply CarMax supply and growing customer demand, divided by United Road’s ability to offer lowest volume delivery pricing, that should equal a perfect match made in auto transport heaven, right? Plus, if you implement a centralized order management system that works better, faster and saves the end consumer money without compromising delivery time, then this thing’s a no-brainer, right?

CarMax and United Road: What Is The Contract?

United Road Transporters

For whatever reason, I couldn’t find any press release online confirming or detailing this new relationship, whereas usually big companies love to share this level of public information because it raises company value and customer confidence. Furthermore, a majority of car hauler businesses already know that these two industry giants are working together because they hear about it through the grapevine, they see the loads being posted online, and some owner-operators continue receiving emails for hard-to-move units. While the dates of when the contract between CarMax and United Road began are unclear, it was sometime in late 2015 or early 2016 when several carriers that once had a direct relationship with CarMax through their load website were suddenly canceled – including Autotransport.com. And curiously, RPM Freight Systems continues to be one of the few brokers still posting CarMax loads. Why (and how) is that the case? Car haulers want to know, “What is going on?”

Car Haulers Reject The Big Drop In CarMax Load Rates

Rates Going Down

But the biggest shock for independent car haulers across the nation is not the “why” but the “what?” – when they began seeing a nearly overnight drop in the United Road load rates for hauling CarMax cars posted to popular car hauler load boards. Until recently, transporters knew the average going rate to haul a single CarMax unit was at 50 cents per mile (although in large volume averaging 40+ cents per mile.) But now, most single CarMax units are being listed around 40 cents per mile (so you can imagine the dip in the volume rate.) Is this true, and how do we know? Yes, and we do know – because that’s what a lot of car hauler businesses are angry about and posting in an online forum at TruckersReport.com

“Anyone who thinks this is a positive change for our industry obviously hasn’t seen the rates. Nobody, no where at no time should be hauling cars for .35 a mile per car.” – ‘joeyg999’

What Car Haulers Are Saying About CarMax/United Road Deal

TruckersReport.com describes itself as an “active and growing community of truckers” and “the largest trucking forum” where hundreds (if not thousands) of truckers regularly voice their frustrations about the trucking industry. In June 2016, user ‘clara’ posted, “So last week we got emails from RPM and United Road that Carmax had contracted them for their moves. Autotransport.com is out…not sure why Carmax did that but doesn’t matter. United Roads and RPM have started posting the Carmax orders…FOR FREAKING LESS THAN HALF WHAT autotransport.com posted before. There’s no way in hell we’re ever booking something like that. It’s a shame, Carmax moves were always so easy.” ‘clara’ is not alone. ‘joeyg999’ wrote, “Anyone who thinks this is a positive change for our industry obviously hasn’t seen the rates. Nobody, no where at no time should be hauling cars for .35 a mile per car.” ‘BigGP’ says, “As far as United Road goes, the rates they are posting are cheap. But then again, CarMax was shopping for lower transport rates. If the cars do not move & Carmax realizes they are losing sales because cars are not available to a customer, the rates will have to go back up.”

Industry Rate Standoff: You’ve Gotta Know When To Hold ‘Em

Auto Transport Broker Carrier Standoff

The United States is a free market; CarMax and United Road aren’t breaking any laws. The problem is that in the auto transport industry, car hauler load board posted rates to haul cars are already low, and they just seem to keep getting lower. ‘Terry270’ illustrates a very common theme among transporters, “The thing is, if I knew that 45 cents was the lowest it would go I would consider it. But we all know if you say yes to 45 cents then next month they would be asking for 40 cents. I think I saw new Subaru’s on CD for 38cents!! So that’s where I have drawn my line and refuse to budge.” If you take the time to ask them, you’ll find out just how bad it really is. ‘Colorato’ posts, “I been home almost two weeks because I don’t see any loads worth the time. Can’t pay the bills like this.”

“If the cars do not move & Carmax realizes they are losing sales because cars are not available to a customer, the rates will have to go back up.” – ‘BigGP’

Car Hauler Feedback: Don’t Kill The Messenger

CarMax Car Hauler Feedback

Speaking for many truckers, ‘Kansas Transit’ sums it up: “We stopped hauling Carmax loads, cheap rates, ridiculous rules, and an app. that doesn’t seem to be compatible with our electronic devices, basically, they want you to jump through hoops for nothing, or in some cases, LESS than what you were making. Keep something in mind, EVERYONE is winning in this deal EXCEPT the transporter/driver, UR is going to save large amounts of green on cutting down or eliminating office workers hours, because of that app, the DRIVER is now their office worker, FOR FREE!!! Carmax wins because not only have they gotten cheaper rates, because of UR’s app they have better tracking ability of where their inventory is and real time notification of p/u and del. AGAIN, it is because of all of the extra work is done by the driver, so Carmax can probably cut the hours of their inventory location staff, money saved. But the driver, unless paid by the hour loses miles and time over the deal, the transport company loses miles and time over the deal, not sure about any one else, but in my world TIME is still MONEY!!!! I can see the reason in this business for real time info on vehicle location/moves, I have NO issues with the concept, but if the driver/company is now also the shippers secretary, then rates need to go UP, not DOWN!!! Sorry for the rant, but somebody had to say it.”

Whether you are a fleet owner, dispatcher, owner operator or broker, what do you think about this recent deal? Does it affect your car hauler business? Does the United Road app make your job easier? Your voice matters and people are listening. What do you have to say?

I AGREE WITH THE other carriers…. autotransport.com kept me busy at a fair rate with the real time p/u an delivery that car max needed …I haven’t hauled a unit since the new deal can’t do it my insurance ,time an fuel cost doesn’t drop…an all these hoops are just ridiculous…let the big company put it on their trucks at that low rate.

Carmax held a bidding war with the carriers and took the lowest bids. When the dust cleared, many carriers could not compete with the “low-ball” bids U.R. provided and they were dropped like yesterdays trash. On C.D. United Roads keeps getting negative ratings for non-payment but they would disappear days later once payment is finally received (adding insult to injury). You know the old adage: “You Get What You Pay For”. We actually miss hauling for Carmax but we just couldn’t give them the rates they wanted.

Theres a very simple solution.

.45 a mile for a single unit anywhere is way too cheap and simply just a waste of time.

That is what we are hauling them for in the houston area, that is the local houston rate, .45, losing our truck because of the low rates and not enough work to go around to keep us MOM and Pop IN BUSINESS. DON’T KNOW WHAT WE WILL DO NOW. .45 cents is the same rate from back in 1999 from dealer to auction.

I stopped hauling the Carmax for UR. Too much of a headache and less money. My drivers said never again. Their other freight rates aren’t the best either. As far as the brokers rates, well I talked to one about a load and he said it hadn’t been on the board long enough to offer more money. So, that being said, the rates would be higher if people would stop hauling it for cheaper . Don’t haul it for less then complain about the rate. I just tell them no thanks. They act surprised to my response. I tell them… Read more »

Maybe you don’t have a monthly note on your equipment and that might be the difference. Not sure what you are doing different, but maybe you have it right! Please share..

We stopped transporting for CarMax once United Road took over. Prices are ridiculous and their app is even more ridiculous that it is a must to be able to transport their cheap priced cars. We hauled through auto transport.com all the time and the prices were always good. Since the change, we have not taken one car from United Road. I would ever make the driver go through that and he would never transport for such a low balled price. It is a shame, but a lot of carriers feel the same way and those cars sit there for a… Read more »

On the west coast there are many carriers that gave up on Carmax. Ridiculous rules? That doesn’t even tell the half of it. They only have 1 person for check ins at most facilities even when there are 6-10 trucks waiting. I have spent 15+ hours multiple times waiting to be checked in. No rules apply when they change the rules on the spot. You can not lose money and stay in business. Carmax does not care

I’ve worked for Carmax directly both as a transporter, and through United Road. When Carmax went out to “bid”, it was clear that it was smoke and mirrors and that they already had a plan. Hundreds of carriers that had dedicated lanes spent hours upon hours re-bidding and cutting rates in an attempt to keep the business. When I questioned them about the new insurance requirements, I was told not to make any changes to my current policy until I was awarded any business.

If they are a 100% lease operator company (because true owner operators have their own authority) they can drop rates because lease operators are dumb enough to haul cheap freight because they do not know all it takes to cover expenses and be profitable. Companies like schneider,swift, jb hunt and us express to name a few take advantage all the time of people who have no clue on the industry.

I think a lot of people are misinformed on what brokers do and how much they make. They are not making more than the carrier. In reality, it is the small fly-by-night brokers who have no overhead costs or knowledge of the business who are cutting rates, along with drivers willing to take freight for pennies. Dealers have access to dispatch boards, so they know that someone will take their car for $0.35 per mile. There is a need for good brokers because bigger accounts don’t have time to deal with 10 different carriers to move their cars, and a… Read more »

Simple solution- DO NOT HAUL THESE CHEAP UNITS.

I have hauled UR CarMax units in the past couple of months( Over 2500 mile run) for over .50/mile. They will raise their rates when they are desperate to meet deadlines but the onus is on us carriers not to haul for sub standard rates.

The problem with Car Hauling started with de-regulation,, broker’s don’t pay and if they do pay not in the time frame required by law which is 30 days, and the Transportation Department only cares about what happens at the scale, if someone doesn’t pay and you call on the bond nothing happens. What about the laws that are still in effect, yet the only people that don’t have to follow them are Broker’s, and Car Dealers , what happened to the law that says you can’t charge more than 10 percent as a broker, what about the law that says… Read more »

The apps that UR and a lot of other companies use take a lot of time and are a real hassle to use. Like some one said I’m tired of being a non paid secretary. Using these apps has cost me between $300.00 and $500.00 a week minimum in lost time and a lower number of vehicles transported. CARMAX better wake up and ditch UR before they have to start closing locations. I don’t see how UR stays in business with their cheap rates on everything they bid on new, used, or salvage.

We are a small transport company. We will NOT haul a CarMax car. Rates way too low and the wait time to check in a vehicle is too long. If the vehicle is a repo and has trash in it they will not check in the vehicle until WE clean it out. CarMax needs more staff to check in vehicles since we are not paid ANY wait time.

I use to haul for United Road no longer as the rates to move Nissan to way to low. anyway the other day my friend called me saying that united road is making everyone have a 150k cargo on each vehicle.
