Could I ?

Depending on circumstances driving may not even be an option after this. Thats why it makes me nervous on the road alotta new drivers wanna “keep up” but having experience knowing your highways your freight and equipment has a high value id say its what alot of people around here are trying to say when they tell people to get that years experience id also say its a big part of telling everyone to run over the road because ime long otr runs have much less scheduling pressure than say regional or home daily Anyhow hope everyone was ok in this accident theres no freight or paycheck worth a life

Lmao that very well could be maybe the super singles just dont stick out as far but i have seen plenty of super singles out there and never really noticed them to be narrower I dont know why this struck me as different all the sudden but i started comparing yesterday and since there are so many primates out there it didnt take me long to decide this was worth asking

I been noticing that prime trailers look like they have shorter tandem axles it seems there tires are inset a couple inches or so im guessing maybe a fuel mileage thing Any prime people know about this or has anyone else noticed this? And are the trailers as stable with this?

Info on Western Express

Im not with that company but i pickup and deliver many of the same places i am home every weekend i live about smack dab in the middle of ny in southern adirondacks the only thing i can say is starting your carreer as a northeast regional driver is no picnic theres no parking terrible roads old shipper and receiving buildings not built for 53’ trailers low bridges bad weather and then theres nyc boston philly and all of nj that being said i love it here byt i honestly dont think a company starting someones carreer here is setting them up for success id suggest goin otr for 1 yr get comfortable with a truck then come tackle the northeast

Am I crazy to quit $58k per year job to become a trucker?

Depending on your location there are alot of regional otr jobs to most of which get you home every or every other weekend it is all ive done and ive done very well doing so i made 75k my first year and 85k my second year in shape to make 90+ this yr there are options out there but ill say i agree with what the pros here say 1 yr otr will provide you the knowledge and tools required to be succesful in trucking i know people that work local gigs get way less sleep than i do due to 12-14 hr days then the drive to and from and dinner and distractions my drive in to work is 2 steps and a pretrip

Help me learn about Lumpers

You need some better trip planning if 1 hour and 15 minute unload ran you late imo Lumpers do as they like charge what they want and finish when they feel like it i take same load same place same number of pallets and product and the time varies by 2 hours and the price varies by 100$
