I think too many companies on here expect rates as backloads.

As a rule of thumb we expect someone to quote normal sameday urgent rates as we prefer to have the job collected quickly and delivered directly. If it happens to be a backload for a clearing driver then good luck it's worked out right for them.

For us it's not about the cheapest price it's getting the job covered in a quick and professional manner.
