I singed up with CentralDispatch on November 23rd 2008, They charge a monthly fee of $49.00 if you pay on a monthly basis, but if you decide to pay them quarterly you will save big bucks, so you will end up paying $39 per month, but here is a CATCH you will have to pay for three (3) in advance so therefore then you can save the crappy $10 per month.
So never the less I signed up with them for the second time, after using CentralDispatch for about 4 days I canceled my account with them and decided that I wont need there service because they allow Non Licensed Auto Transport Brokers, Auto Transport Carriers, the worst thing about CentralDispatch they also allow companies that don't pay Auto Transport Carriers.
CentralDispatch has a RATING SYSTEM where each and every company can give each other rating based on there experience etc.
I have also noticed that CentralDispatch also removes Negative Ratings from companies they have close relationship with so even if you Rate a Company Negative based on your experience they will remove that Rating from that company......I had 100% Rating and they had problems with my company because I spoke up about there Corrupt System.
Here are some companies that has Horrible Ratings and centraldispatch stills allows them.
If you pay close attention to this company you will see that they got 267 Complaints from Auto Transport Carriers, what that means is that these companies don't pay the Auto Transport Carriers for the service they provide for these Scam Companies.

Well the companies with Low Ratings are still using CentralDispatch, and Most of these companies are without Proper Brokers Bond, Authority etc. I made couple of complaints to them and they end up canceling my account before I decided that I wanted to cancel my account, so I ask them if you are going to cancel my account then I want my full Refund of $117 which I was charged a rate of $39 per month X three months. = $117.00
Well I only got $78.00 Back from CentralDispatch and they end up charging me the $39.00 for no reason and I was told by Company Employee that she will refund my entire Amount, but I only saw $78.00.
www.CentralDispatch.com CentralDispatch is Fraud, Ripoff, Scam, charging customers Credit Cards without my permission and I was told that I will get my refund back but they end up charging me.
I just want others to post similar Scam against this Scam and there operation, because they will charge your Credit Card without your Authorization and that's a Fraud charging a Credit Card Without Customers ( Signature and Permission)
In the end I want CentralDispatch to refund my full amount and I will file a Fraud Alert with My Credit Card Company and I will post more negatives Ripoff Report against this CentralDispatch, and there Scam.
There are new Auto Load Board like example new http://www.autoloadhub.com that offer the same service for allot less and I will Highly recommend good companies.
