Auto Transport Broker CRM:

Auto Broker Dispatch The best features hands down, but it’s a little pricey. Tell them Ashley from ReloGeek sent you.

Carship IO  The most affordable but definitely lowest on the list of features. If you are on a budget, this is an option. [ Use Code: ReloGeek ]

Jtracker Neutral. Does what it needs to do but not a fan of their customer service.

 

Car Hauler CRM:

*Super Dispatch I really love what they are doing over at Super Dispatch. If you are starting your business or already have a business, their software and app is a must have. Very user friendly and I think it will help you become more organized, more customer friendly and more efficient at doing your job. [ 75% Off Discount Code: RLG75 ]

Carship IO Similar to Super Dispatch, the guys at CarshipIO have decent software. Their reporting feature is definitely a plus so if that’s what you care about, this might be the option for you.

 

Auto Transport Broker Leads:

iRelo I really love how these guys handle their leads. Their process is refreshing. Although they encourage you to buy exclusive leads if you are a new business, I think their reasoning is on point. You can’t go wrong here.

I call that SUPER WOMAN. You can’t go wrong with her leads or her customer service. Be sure to tell Cristy ReloGeek sent you and get $50 off your first month. Oh and I have been getting amazing feedback about her leads. They are the real deal ya’ll! 🙂

*Central Dispatch This is the industry standard. This is where car haulers go to find loads and where auto transport brokers go to get their client’s vehicles moved.

Canva is great for designing mainly free templates yourself. They have an awesome layout library that allows you to use their free or paid layouts and add your own images. This is great for creating social media images or thumbnails for videos.
