Hello. Our company is considering switching from Comdata to EFS checks for lumper services and a few other things. Does anyone have any opinions on which company is better, which checks are more widely accepted, easier to use, etc.

Thanks in advance for any input.

My company recently switched from T-Checks to Comdata & I saw no difference. As far as lumpers go, many only wanna know which one you’re using and the authorization code. They call an 800 number, verify the code and away you go.

I can’t speak to which is more widely accepted. But I doubt your company wants you sitting around looking for a merchant that accepts EFS.

You might try asking your company what changes, if any, they expect drivers will see.

I hope this helps.

I've used both, and noticed zero difference.

No, as far as having to pay the lumpers, I'll never get that concept that someone came up with, putting the driver as the go-between.

I agree what is this lumper b.s.

Seems like the same thing as me ordering something online and when UPS delivers it to me telling them I need a $5 to take that off their hands.

Ummm...??? You ordered something just take delivery of your property.
