No need for them. They are just brokers. You can go straight to the source stops all the crap when you have a claim. Why would I want to be a member of something just to get their so called good rate, when you don't need a middle man anyway

For insurance you're much better off going to an independent agent.

OOIDA did not offer coverage that is acceptable to my main 2 customers, and would not cover hazmat under any circumstance for us.

I'm a lifetime member of OOIDA and their insurance sux.

OOIDA sued Landstar years ago over their Owner Operator contract or something. That is why Landstar will not accept OOIDA insurance.

If you study their coverages you will quickly find that they suck. There are reasons why brokers won't accept them. Most are people that specialize in open deck loads. Ooida doesn't cover chain and strap damage and that one of the main reasons. There are also lots of "small" things that they do not cover that will end up costing the insured if something ever happens.

OOIDA did sue landstar about 3 years ago I think cause they was not taking care of owner operator right and after they won then turn around ooida help landstar make things right out of ooida own pocket experience, ooida will accept landstar just landstar won't accept them

If Landstar is as cheap with everyone as what they offer me I'm surprised anyone would want to load for them anyway

OOIDA is excellent, been with them two years, always responds quickly, far more competitive than others.

Matt in my experiences I've never had a broker refuse my insurance but I have had shippers turn me away over insurance once I arrived and check in to load.

Used OOIDA insurance for 2 years when I first got my authority. Ran in to some troubles with certain shippers because of the underwriters...Lloyds of London. Apparently the underwriters have a long history of not paying claims, and the high valur shippers I was dealing with were having none of it. Have long since moved on.

OOIDA truck insurance was twice the cost for us as it is through AMP insurance here in Minnesota. Couldn't justify the extra money to go with OOIDA.

Have never had a shipper ask for insurance. Other than when setting up load. That is all settled before sending a truck.

I don't know what's the difference. I'm sitting here waiting to load and just watched security turn a truck back who didn't have his insurance pre approved?? Our 3 largest customers all require insurance certificates and yearly claim/damage reports. ????? Don't know why but as long as they pay my rates I'll comply.
