Detailed Description

What is a Broker Authority?
A Broker Authority is a license issued and granted by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) that allows a company to arrange the transportation of cargo belonging to others by using for-hire carriers to provide the actual transportation of the cargo.  Once your Authority is applied for, you will be issued an MC number by the FMCSA.
Why should I let Interstate Authority take care of the application process?
First, we save you time.  Just answer a few simple questions and we will prepare the application and get the MC number issued for you. Secondly, we give you peace of mind.  You don't have to worry that your application may contain mistakes that could delay your grant date or get your application rejected altogether.  Finally, we save you money.  Our service fees are much lower than other reputable registration services.  Match that with our unbeatable customer service and support, it's a no-brainer.
How does the Broker Authority application process work?
Once we complete the application for your Broker Authority, you will be issued a pending MC number.  This MC number will remain pending for at least 18-21 days due to the federal protest period. 
In order for your authority to be granted at the end of the protest period, you need to have two filings in place.
1. The BMC-84 or BMC-85, is a form submitted by your insurance company or financial institution to verify a surety bond or trust fund with $75,000 coverage.  If you don't have a company for this filing, contact us and we can recommend a reputable company.
2. The BOC-3 (Designation of Process Agents) is an electronic filing we can complete to designate a process agent in every state.  The BOC-3 filing is included with every package except the Basic package.  Our Basic Broker Authority package is only recommended for companies that are adding a Broker Authority to an active MC number.
What are the differences between the Broker Authority Packages?
Basic Package $398 (Add authority Type to Existing MC Number) - The Basic package includes the $300 Federal filing fee and the generation of a new authority type on your existing MC number.  This package is only recommended for companies that already have an MC number with an active BOC-3 filing and want to add the Broker Authority on the same MC number.
Standard Package $448 (MC and BOC-3) - The Standard Package includes the $300 Federal filing fee, the generation of a new MC number for your Broker Authority, and the required BOC-3 filing (Designation of Process Agents).
Premium Package $588 - (MC, BOC-3 and UCR) - The Premium Package includes the $300 Federal filing fee, the generation of a new MC number for your Broker Authority, the required BOC-3 filing, and the UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) for the current year.  The UCR is a state registration required for brokers in every state except (AZ, DC, FL, MD, NJ, NV, OR, VT, and WY).
