Where 2 park my truck!?

Camille - check with a storage place near you that people store their vehicles. Maybe you could set something up with them for a few bucks a day, keep receipts and talk to task adviser about writing off as employee expense. There a storage place near my house that I've seen a couple tractors in there for a couple days and gone for awhile, so I'm assuming thats what they are doing. Doing it that way most storage facilities require access code and have surveillance cams.

Thanks I'll do that!

Where 2 park my truck!?

Walmart's, Lowe's and other very large stores of that type usually have no issue with letting drivers park their truck at the store while on home time.

I have also seen where drivers have parked their truck at a shopping mall during their home time. The key to parking at these types of places is to contact the management of said establishment and make the proper arrangements to park the truck.

Where in MO do you live? There are many truck stops in MO, no reason you can't park at one for your home time.

Thanks I'll look into some of those places. I'm kinda in the middle of know where as far as truck stops go it's a long drive!

Where 2 park my truck!?

I'm getting ready to start my phase 2 with a trainer and when I'm done I'll get my truck (hopefully) now I can't bring it home because I live on a military base in MO and the nearest terminal for my company is 2 hours away. :/ so ideas on where to park it? There's like 2 big gas stations that are kind shady near by but any better ideas on where I should look?

Where are the truck stops near the base? Usually you'll have no problem even to leave it parked for 34 hours. Best bet is a local operated stop. You know, the neighborhood kind. Talk to management, I'm sure they'll be amenable.

Say, what happens when you PCS?

my husband is almost out of his contract then we will team

Best company for a beginner

I just recently got my cdl and now I'm trying to decide which company to go with Schneider I've been talking to but should I consider any one else? I Live in Missouri

I have been driving for Schneider since I got my CDL. If you go with them you'll quickly learn about the small things that set them apart from most.

Attitude is key. If you have a great attitude and do your research you will find a great company that meets your needs. Good luck.

I hear you! Thanks!

Camille I just finished orientation with Averitt. I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about them and am very pleased with my decision. If after researching them on your own should you have any questions about the organization Id be happy to answer them via PM as best I can. I had many options for my first company and I feel certain I've made the right choice for me personally with Averitt. If you qualify, they WILL take care of you.

Awesome thanks I'll pm you I'm very interested

Like others have said, whatever suits you and your families needs. Since your in Missouri I would take a look into Prime as well, they're based in Springfield. There is also Henderson trucking, they're based out of Salem IL, but the yard is in Collinsville just east of St. Louis.

Ok I'll look into those thank you

The best company is one that fits you and your families needs. From what I have been reading and researching most "starter" companies are the same. Its the small differences you have to look for. For instance I am looking into Schneider and USA because of their dedicated routes

Well it Will be just me and my Husband in a few months on the road. I just hear so many good and bad things about so many different companies and all recruiters make who they work for sound great!

Having a cdl in one state but living in another?

Hello im wondering how that works. Im currently about to get my license (cdl) in Missouri and will hopefully start working for Schneider within the next month now as soon as my husband gets out of he Army we would like to move back to IL to be closer to family but we will be team driving is It possible to have our cdls in Missouri but live in IL or would we have to transfer everything back to IL. whats also really confusing is that as soon as we start team driving we will be based out of Indiana because that's Schneider's head quarters for team drivers "so we have been told" so do we have to move to Indiana? I hope that all made sense. the recruiter we are talking to hasn't really made it clear to us what are options are.

Traveling with a dog?

I got a pit on the truck with me. I couldn't imagine a better temperament. I really don't care for the yap dogs. He snoozes most of the time. I take him out for a bathroom break about half as often as I go. The cooler weather makes him goofy outside. It makes him act like a puppy.

The shedding is terrible though. Getting the short hair out of the upholstery is a chore.

Thanks!

Traveling with a dog?

I'm thinking about getting a dog soon here to travel with after I get my cdl the company I'm going to work for will have me on the road a few days and for the companionship and guarding of my truck would it be smart to get a dog? Just curious how people with experience feel on the subject.
