boatguy123 Breen McMahon BOAT GUY 123 is a fraud and is transporting illegally as per the federal laws with NO min. required $750, 000 commercial cargo insurance in force with the Gov to be legal. Thats no protection for your cargo, (Gov Proof below)...NO DOT, MC or ICC #S and not displayed on the side of your owned or leased legal trucks like all legal commercial trucks running DOT hrs & log books. You need proper government authority to transport for hire and to be legal. You have not. We have filed against him. Do not use this guy or the many other non legals that state they are insured or legal it will cost you in the long run. When he gets pulled over by any law enforcement or go over required scales or at state lines driver will the arrested and fined and your load will be impounded and towed to DOT storage and get fees/fines and require a legal transporter with DOT / MC #s with commercial insurance to remove it with proper certification after all fines & fees have been paid.
BEWARE, He is illegal and there is no protection with this hauler.
Here is the site to check this info on anyone transporting>>

I would hope you wouldn't risk allowing someone without commercial cargo insurance with legal authority per FMCSA haul your hard earned possessions ...You would think twice if your cargo got impounded by police/DOT stuck in who knows where because he is not legal or worse in an accident damaging it or never delivering... theft... You would lose it all with a total loss to you and cost you much more in the end or just an I owe you. He is also taking jobs from the legal carriers protecting their customers. Would you want a garage tech to do a heart transplant? I hope you understand. Have a good day and protect your investments.
The US DOT number:
Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number. The USDOT Number serves as a unique identifier when collecting and monitoring a company’s safety information acquired during audits, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and inspections.
The MC number:
Companies that operate as “for hire” carriers (for a fee or other compensation) that transport passengers or federally regulated commodities, or arrange for their transport, in interstate commerce are also required to have interstate operating authority.
The Reach of Operating Authority
FMCSA operating authority is also referred to as an "MC, " "FF, " or "MX" number, depending on the type of authority that is granted. Unlike the USDOT Number application process, a company may need to obtain multiple operating authorities to support its planned business operations. Operating Authority dictates the type of operation a company may run, the cargo it may carry, and the geographical area in which it may legally operate.
Now if the truck you're getting is owned by someone else, you're in a whole different ball game. It would have to be leased to your company by the owner. You would become the lessee and the person owning the truck would be the lessor. As the operating motor carrier, you'll be responsible and liable the same as if you owned the truck and the driver would be the same as a company employed driver.
You can't just allow someone to run their trucks under your authority without a written lease and required $750, 000 commercial cargo insurance in force with the Gov to be legal.
All trucks operated under your motor carrier company must be covered under your motor carrier company's insurance policy. You must keep the appropriate company records for all equipment operated and all drivers operating them. The New Entrant safety audit, normally conducted within a few weeks after your authority is activated, will examine the company records. If your records do not contain the mandated records, you'll be out of service until they're corrected. I would recommend you visit this website for more information on the New Entrant Program.
As I've said numerous times in the past, the driving of the truck is a small part of operating a motor carrier company. Running the company correctly is what keeps you out of trouble and lets you continue to operate.
Thanks for the question and I hope I've answered it for you. If not please feel free to submit a follow up question.

As one of the co-founders, I extend a personal invitation to you and others to join our cause to elevate the awareness of the safety and economic issues caused by illegal trucking on our nation's highways. I hope to see you there.
We are looking for others that have had taken (damages, unreturned deposits for hauls never completed or otherwise) by these rouge haulers and for their posts then we forward them all, along with yours to the FMCSA, DOT, FCC, FBI cyber Crime and to the Attorney General's Office for possible additional criminal and civil charges. Here are a couple of the sites for more info. http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/ www.FBI.gov/about-us/investigate/cyber/cyber
We are informed of such actions and we look into them and are filing against bad and illegal haulers and letting your and my fellow Americans know to be aware of their crimes, problems and illegal and otherwise to protect them from being a victim of these crimes. Cargo gets impounded daily by the DOT for non compliance and these customers and parties that pay a good price thinking they are legal and legit then get taken for more. They don't have cargo insurance and their auto insurance will not cover for damages or anything they tow or haul for hire and some of them are never delivering at all. Thank you and have a nice day.

Boat not delivered at or even close to agreed time. Had to ask marina to stay late to off load boat. Trailer provided by hauler had no fenders exposing boat to stones thrown off tires. Nice guy but not very responsible or professional.
