Read the story of one of Coastal’s Freight agents, Does this sound like your story?
“…I was for working for the freight brokerage company “X” on a salary plus commission basis . No matter how hard I worked and how much freight I moved for our customers my commission checks never amounted to much. During this time I was an apartment dweller and rented my furniture. I lived from paycheck to paycheck and my family went without many things that most find necessary in this day and age. We sacrificed while the company I worked for did well and was quite prosperous.
While the situation was difficult at times for my family and myself at times, the bright side of the whole situation could be summed up in the fact that I did get the experience and contacts necessary to operate as an independent freight broker agent. I established great relationships with a couple of niche movers, waste disposal outfits, and some produce growers and wholesalers.
I had known the guys at Coastal for many years while I toiled away in obscurity working hard day in and day out. One day I met the guys at Coastal and we discussed the possibilities of working together. Coastal showed me that if I ran the same business I was currently running I could make four times my current income, this with my current customers. After some serious thought I made the decision to go with Coastal. Heck if I did a quarter of the business I was currently doing I would basically be in the same shape I was currently in, it was a no brainer, so I tracked down my own health insurance and benefits and decided to believe in my abilities to help shippers and carriers as a independent agent with Coastal.
When I look back I was a bit nervous stepping out on my own. Sure it was a risk. I believed in myself and my capability to build the business. Was it worth it? Emphatically I can “YES” if I had to do it again I would not change a thing, in fact I would have listened to the guys at Coastal much sooner and been there even sooner. Today I own a home, drive a new car, buy what I want for myself and my family. My family and I are very thankful that I work with such a great operation.
Lastly there are few things that I really like about working with Coastal. First, when the guys at Coastal say the are going to do something or take care of a matter you can carve it in stone, it’s as good as done. Second, Coastal is very responsive to my needs and I feel valued working with them, I feel like a part of their team. Third, Coastal is very easy to communicate and work with as well. I could not imagine working for or with another organization as a Freight Broker Agent.”
