Reefer Companies that Fuel at PIlot/Flying J

Oh yeah and I almost forgot! The reason I care is because I would like to get the most points at Pilot/Flying J. Probably should've put that in the original post. Whoops, lol

Reefer Companies that Fuel at PIlot/Flying J

Thanks everyone, didn't realize companies switch it up so often. The reason I ask is because in my experience with the major truck stops (albeit non-trucking experience) Pilot/Flying J seem to be the nicest.

Reefer Companies that Fuel at PIlot/Flying J

Hey everyone, sort of a weird question but can I get some suggestions medium to large reefer companies that fuel primarily at Pilot/Flying J or give their drivers the option of where to fuel? Pilot/Flying J is my preferred truck stop and I was looking at WEL but from what I've gathered they pretty much seem to fuel at TA/Petro, which isn't a deal breaker but I would like to see what else is out there. Thanks!

Questions about Crete/Shaffer/Hunt

Thanks PackRat. When you say the engine will run normally, does that mean there’s no auto-shutdown? For example the engine will idle above or below a certain temperature?

Questions about Crete/Shaffer/Hunt

To add, I’m also considering CFI and Werner, but my only concern with CFI is having to leave the company completely to try Flatbed or Reefer. And my concern with Werner is all the typical stuff you see online about Werner

Questions about Crete/Shaffer/Hunt

Hi All, I’ve got a few questions about Crete. First off, I see a lot of Crete trucks pulling Shaffer trailers and vice versa. I’m wondering do you have to pull both reefers and vans to work there? I want to just pull dry vans to start out, but I want to go to a company with the option to try reefer or flatbed. Also, are you allowed to take those stupid looking wheel covers off the drives? (I know theyre for aerodynamics, but I just can’t get over the way they look!) and lastly, what’s their idle policy?

Reefer vs Van for Rookie

Thanks fellas. Something else I forgot to ask was I've heard there's a considerable amount of more night driving with reefer. Is that true?

Reefer vs Van for Rookie

Hi Everyone,

I'm considering becoming an OTR trucker and I'm wondering if the hassle involved with reefer (long wait times, lots of live loads/unloads, etc.) is worth the extra few cents per mile. I'm thinking either Prime, who starts at .45 cpm or Werner who doesn't have exact starting pay on their website but I'm assuming its probably in the neighborhood of .38-.40 cpm.

Thanks everyone!

A question for you old timers...

I've got a question for you old timers out there..

I'm not a truck driver, but I am planning on rebuilding a early 80's 359 and I want to get an old flatbed trailer to match it. So I'm wondering 2 things, were spread axles popular back then or were most fb trailers tandem? Question 2 what was the standard length?

Thanks guys!!

Flatbedding vs Dryvan for a beginner

Hi Everyone!

I am a future truck driver who is trying to make the decision: dry van or flatbed? My end goal is to be in household goods but that seems like a mostly O/O business, so obviously not a beginner job. I am leaning towards flatbed because, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like there would be more situations where I am in the type of place that is in no way a place a truck should be which is common in household goods. I have thought about the difference in trailer length but I've found that Melton has mostly 53 footers so that eliminates the fact that most flatbeds are 48 footers. But enough blabbing, my main question is would which would better prepare me for household goods because flatbed I would think would present me more challenges with load securement and moving around tight spaces that weren't made for trucks.

Thanks everyone and I hope you are having a good Sunday! (or whatever day you're reading this) :-)

Driver-less trucks and the future of trucking

I was wondering the same thing as the person who started this thread... I'm almost old enough to drive OTR and I don't want to be out of work by the time I'm 35.

Big trucking companies

So I'm a new member (just came from Trucker's Report, got tired of them), and I was wondering if all the stuff they say on there about the bigger companies like Werner, Swift, Prime, USX, etc. is all that stuff true or is it bull crap? Thanks, Sean (Ham)
