What is the difference between a carrier and a broker?

A carrier operates trucks and often times is an owner-operator who only schedules shipments through a broker and serves only a few routes.  Most carrier companies have limited amount of trucks and do not cover all 50 states in USA. 

A broker usually works with a huge network of car carriers serving the whole country. In most cases, a broker can give you a lower rate since they have multiple carriers competing to transport a vehicle. Brokers also verify the USDOT authority, federal licenses and cargo insurance of the carrier company transporting your vehicle.  It can be difficult to verify these things on your own.
