No, unfortunately Roehl is one of the few companies that doesn't provide transportation to their facility.

Moving closer to terminal worth it?

So leaving for training on the 23 for training with roehl transport (will be starting the training blog closer to that time) but my lease on my place is up decemeber first and was wondering kf it would be worth my while to try to move closer to a terminal ( marshfeild wi) on a bonus from mgetting bored and checking rental price is lower... But i dont have anything holding me where i currently live ... Am i overthinking this?

Manual Transmission

I tried to get my pilot licenses with weekend classes i know its not the same thing but the learning style is simular and weekend classses didnt work for me i would send half of the time with the instructor relearning the same things becuase honestly i forgot i think learning to drive a big rig is the same way you just have to do it and go all in anf you will get it but that is just me you might be different

Roehl training

So looks like i will be off to training and have some questions if anyone has been threw it recently ... Looking threw roehls write up on the site i see they have autos in the fleet but still train in ten speed eaton fullers . i have been around trucking my whole life and my dad tried to teach me to drive when i turned 18 and i just could not get my head around shifting. I don't know of it was because my dad was just a bad teacher (didnt really have the time has to keep the wheels turning) so does anyone know what happens of you cant wrap your head arou d shifting but are good with everything else also are there any roehl lease ops in here have some questions on that as well mostly what the total weekly fixed cost is. Thanks inadvance guya
