    Any advice?

    smallbizguy5 Newbie
      I'm looking to get my lisence to broker properties (freight). The school is anywhere from $1500-$3500, and there is a $10,000 surety bond you have to obtain as insurance.

      I am fairly young, and have not-so-good credit. Are there any lenders that specialize in business/insurance for the creditly challenged?

              Thanks for the response Lucky,

               

              I live in Phoenix, AZ. As a freight broker, I would simply find manufacturers with carriers, and charge a small brokerage fee. To do so, I need the capitol to pay the carrier within so-many business days. There are licenses and fees associated with obtaining the license, and well fees for registering with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. There is also a $10,000 insurance bond needed.

              As far as the schooling goes, my business plan allows me to take an online/over the phone class with someone already established in the business who can give me step-by-step instruction.

              Thanks again Lucky, hopefully I answered all your questions.
