Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Registration is free. When you see a load you like, and put in a winning bid, you get 100% of your bid. Our shippers pay a flat percentage that covers our costs of technology, administration, and accounting.
Why do I have to register?
Sleek Fleet is built with you, the Owner Operator, in mind. We want to insure that there are no larger carriers, brokers, imposters, or under qualified drivers in the system.
I tried to register and it told me to call your office?
We have a nearly comprehensive list of Owner Operators in our database that we use to verify your status as an Owner Operator. We understand that list could be missing some authorities so we ask that you call in verify manually.
How can I make more money when the shipper is saving money?
There are no large carriers or brokers taking a slice of your pie, every load has the same transaction fee so we don't waste time haggling, and there are no hidden fees like quick pay so you'll never feel like you're being taken advantage of.
Is my information going to be used elsewhere?
Privacy is very important to you so it is very important to Sleek Fleet. We will not share your information other than for your shippers to have updates on their loads.
How quickly will I get paid?
During normal business hours, we promise to handle your paperwork, either process the payment or notify you of anything that needs to be corrected, within 4 hours of submission.
Who can I call if I'm having an issue on a load?
Our accessorial (detention, lumper, Truck Order Not Used, etc.) approval is 99% automated. Details are included in our password secured area and we're always here to help. In the event that you run into a problem at one of your stops, please call our Driver Hotline at 910.420.4295.
How do I know that I will get paid?
Sleek Fleet's payment terms are so fast that you'll know within hours of when you deliver if there’s an issue. We pay you long before our shippers pay us so you don't need to worry about their creditworthiness.
What type of device can I use?
Any mobile device with internet, location services, and a camera is compatible. Our Driver interface is designed to work on any operating system.
Why do you want my phone's location services turned on?
The shippers require automated tracking and you deserve to drive in peace (or talk to somebody you like)!
Why isn't there more information for me on this site?
Your needs are unique. Automating a process requires standardization but more importantly, it requires customization so it works for you. We work with our Shippers through the whole process to ensure we meet your requirements.
How can I learn more?
Please apply to ship with Sleek Fleet or give us a call at 312-319-5588. We'll take some preliminary steps to verify that you are in fact a real shipper and not a broker to ensure that we can keep our costs to a minimum. We also ask that you execute a Mutual NDA, ours or yours, so that we can both have peace of mind as we build our relationship.
My company requires more insurance than the typical shipper.

How can I save money if the Driver is making more money?
