When you’re comparing different companies you’ll want to check a couple of key things. You should always check a company's authenticity.

Here are a few things that you should take into consideration and check for yourself before you engage in any transaction:

  • Companies that can provide documents, such as a certificate of registration or a license for transportation have more credibility;
  • Check Companies House. You can get some details about a company for free, including:
    • company information, for example registered address and date of incorporation
    • current and resigned officers
    • document images
    • mortgage charge data
    • previous company names
    • insolvency information
  • Find lorry operators - Search by name, address or licence number for operators of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs);
  • Even if you see the documents and believe they look veridical, you should check the details on an endorsed platform, such as:
    • VIES VAT number validation. Customers VAT Registration Number - The customer VAT registration number (VRN) must be valid for the country you have selected. With every new customer, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) suggest that you check the validity of their VRN. As a preliminary check you can use the EU Commissions website to confirm that the number is valid. To be certain your customer's details are correct HMRC strongly recommend you contact the VAT Helpline on 0300 200 3700. Please note: If you have been advised by HMRC that a customer's VRN is invalid then you must not continue to use it to zero rate supplies to that customer;
  • Transport Providers should always check if the Dispatcher has all the necessary documents for the loads (source of loads, purchase documents);
  • Insurance - Anything that takes up an entire lorry is likely to be valuable, therefore it’s important to check the level of load protection given by the companies. In the case that their cover doesn’t equal the value of your load, you can ask them to increase it for a small cost. You can check this on a users Account Profile Page.
  • Associations - Although there’s no obligation for a haulier to be a member of an association it does provide you with a certain peace of mind that they are a registered member of a recognised body. You can check this on a users Account Profile Page.
  • We have a rating system – companies will most likely have reviews from other users they have interacted with in terms of business. You can use the ratings as further reference for deciding whether or not you want to work with them;

You should always check the credibility of a company that you want to work with by making sure the documents provided are veridical and that your agreement with them clearly stipulates what conditions should be met.
