Team driving

Okay havent been here in a while but had a few questions regarding team driving... 1. Is it worth it 2. Is .2575cpm really a good starting point 3. Why is the pay so low? Please advise...

Minimum pay companies

I just left a guarantee pay company K&B transportation I realized that they were strictly a relay company Meaning I rarely ever got a long haul load that I would actually deliver. Three months of being On the road for three to four weeks at a time and I never once made more than the guarantee.

Is background a big issue or not?

I have a class a assault charge from 2004 no company has given me any grief about it but I did get a slow up and was scrutinized by homeland security at an army base, I delivered meat too their bx, at the guard shack.

That was in cedar falls. It was only a few minutes though and I did get a year long ID/pass badge from the guard.

In my favor though I was given two years probation but finished early after a petition to the court after only one year. Fees and community service was completed in 6 months.

Truck driver fells 30-foot tree, drags it 2 miles, police say

Do u think he is related to the light pole hitchhiker? He at least avoided the obstacles....parked cars and road signs....or maybe it was the same guy and he figured the wood rub marks would just buff out!!rofl-3.gif

Scale tickets

Hmmm I been through cabbage with 18,000lbs of boxed furniture And back out 90 all the way to Chicago with 43,000lbs of cider that I had secured with a load strap.....I'm not the slowest driver and I know a couple of my turns were somewhat aggressive but I scaled both loads once and did not have any issues.....

seems a little far fetched too have that dramatic of a load shift without a catastrophic event having taken place....i.e. near rollover or near collision with emergency braking having taken place.....

unless like it was suggested tandems were slid up a few holes intentionally to cause issues during your shift of driving.... wtf-2.gif

Serious question...

Like Brett has mentioned in his book and in his postings to me and others. Attitude is a large factor in this industry. If your a determined self starting go getter you will excel, if u wait for others to fix your issues you will lose every time. Whiners need not apply....

Serious question...

I have a guarantee pay as long as I'm available for dispatch Monday to Monday $1125.00 whether I run the miles at .45cpm or not.

So the opportunities are out there u just have to find the right one....

Serious question...

Now in regards to the noise of the refer....my truck has a carrier apu and between the two the apu makes more noise than the refer motor....I just imagine I'm in an airplane with no earplugs flying at 20,000ft and it takes only a few minutes to knock out cold.

Now I've bought myself a SCREAMER truckers alarm clock cause I have noticed I sleep harder than when I was in the dryvan no apu with the truck idling all night.....

But hey like that hole at the other end and opinions....we all got one....but there's my two or six cents on the subject.

And too put things in perspective I'm making .05cpm more running a refer than running a dedicated dryvan route.....
