I have a maelstrom and 3 hurricanes I need moved from Mastakomon to Jita. I never made a courier contract before. Should I expect if I make a public courier for collateral of the worth and 10% reward + 1mil a jump? I am assuming haulers just check what is near them and pickup whatever is nearby at that one time, or it does not work that way? Any experience is always appreciated.

Search for Red Frog.. I think they take 100k/jump.
As for collateral.. you can ask what you want. At least ask for the value of the shipment, as it can be scanned and if the transport guy finds out that the content is worth more than the collateral he'll rip the package. This is most importantly true for public courier contracts.
If you go to some known and trusted party (there are other courier services) this might not be of much concern..
See the 'Want to Sell' forums for couriers.

Contract it to Deneb Sol and I'll have it in Jita ASAP.

+1 for Red Frog Freight. You can do a public courier contract if you wish; just make sure the amount of the collateral is greater than the value of what you're shipping in case it's lost or stolen. The problem is getting the reward for the contract right. Some people do a percentage value of the contents, others use a base fee plus per jump addition, and there really is no hard and fast rule. The farther out from normal shipping lanes you have to go to either pick it up or drop it off the longer it will tend to sit.

If it's all hisec, 1mil a jump is more than ample, especially going to jita. At that m3, you're pitching it to a freighter. Freighter mentality is to usually ship between hubs (going out of the way for lucrative contracts) and cram everything they can to fill up the cargo. If you're hub to hub, or along such a route there's a good chance it'll get picked up at any price.
