friction-free trucking

run your trucking business, stress-free

Owner-ops and small carriers face a ton of friction so we decided to help alleviate some of that pain and frustration.



We know what it's like out there so we created the SmartHop Stress-Free Guarantee. Book your load through us and we'll put the power of our partnerships and support team behind your trip so that it's smooth and stress-free.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to sign up for the guarantee?

No, the SmartHop Stress-Free Guarantee is included when you book a load with SmartHop. However, to qualify for the guarantee, you must be on-time arrival to stop, have a P44 connection live for in and out times, and you must contact SmartHop’s back office when the issue arises so we are able to walk you through the process.

What are the requirements?

  • For Detention, the grace period is to exceed 3 hours.
  • For Layover, the appointment must be pushed by a minimum 8 hours, and for each 24 hour delay thereafter.
  • For Truck Order Not Used, you must call within 4 hours of the scheduled pick-up time.

If I bring in a load, can I still be backed by SH?

Yes, you are able to find and bring in a load, but it has to be booked by SmartHop. If we book it, we’ll back it.

What are the numbers?

  • Detention: $40 initial payout, $200 maximum.
  • Layover: $200 payout
  • Truck order not used: $200 payout
  • Lumpers: $200 initial payout, $600 maximum

What's the catch?

There's no catch, just boundaries. Such as: for lumpers, you will still need to invoice the lumper back to the broker and it is your responsibility to collect. SmartHop will then recoup the money on your next billing cycle. Additionally, a TONU payout applies when SmartHop is unable to provide a replacement load for the same or better rate.
