Trucking under Democratic or Republican Government

Some Democrats push more extreme environmental laws and penalties which impact drivers. What if the laws passed in California are made nationwide?

My story

double-quotes-start.png

Didn't leave in a huff bud, just was wondering l. Im still tnt. For every horror story there's a good one. Thanks pj since you were lease its easier to understand.

I'm just anxious thats all, I'm ready to go solo, driving and dealing with shippers and relievers not that bad. ( only thing I got to get used to is the waiting which I am) wish they were all drop and hooks lol.

I decided to go company for awhile. I need to take advantage if primes dental and insurance, even though the cost is crazy for a single person. Prolly just do my year or alittle more,then get a yard jocky job or somthing local. Unless I can get lucky and gran a regional from prime,but till then just going to learn and keep enjoying it.

I should just be proud, not many people make it this far.

Truth about Leasing

I see you watched one of my videos. This one discusses $10k negligence fees that most lease ops dont know. And how they are responsible for the freight.

Yeah I did i knew it already, one of the things that us making me go company, why rush. Someone said make your mistakes ( non serious) on company dime

My story

I apologize didnt mean to act like that. I decided to just go company. I don't know why I wanted to rush things learn the buisness before anything. But my dream is to own my own truck one day, but cannot do that with no financial capital or little experience. My kids are almost of age. Im 43 now as long as this economy dont crash to dystopia measures I can drive as long as my health would allow.

I'm just excited and anxious. Most my life due to my choices I made, I been down and out,just happy somthings working out.

My story

Lol prolly just like everyone else does. Calculate how your averaging miles per gallon,how long to your next stop, divide that by the miles. ( this works well in most circumstances) but if you driving in hill terrain,starting and stopping etc etc. We had a run from cali,to pageland sc and from pageland back to cali and ran good fuel mileage per mile. Ran both ways around 60 mph.

My story

I will be upgrading around the first 2 weeks if January, it is going quick. But no I didn't talk myself out of lease,my trainer does very well he has trained me day one how to run as a solo lease. These last 3 weeks I been basically doing all the shipper and receiver work. I had the driving down awhile ago. His fuel strategy is really good. I have always been good at budgeting money and have management experience just got to manage myself. If I knew without a doubt I couldn't do it i wouldnt.

My story

You make alot of sense Rob. Why would they give me a crappy truck, plus anything goes wrong(not my fault)its company dime got to keep the tools you use to working order.

To the stress away from home the solitude, I can handle, unfortunately due to my younger years, I did four years incarceration. Besides waking up and not being a idiot I did learn alot of life skills that have helped me when I got out.

I can make alot of money company just buy getting the bonus prime offers and doing my work to the best of my ability. I'm not going lease. I will get good loads from getting experience, and a good relationship with my fm.

My story

KJ I don’t think you are looking at company vs lease in the correct perspective.

What you mentioned above is known as forced dispatch. True lease operaters are not force dispatched. You can say no to a load. Do you understand what happens then? You go to the bottom of the list of trucks in that area. You may very well be sitting for several more hours and or days making nothing.

You mentioned hometime. You better check around every lease driver I have spoke with makes comments they can’t afford to go home. They also tell me they have to team or train to make any money.

Those comments are consistent no matter the company. You want to go home and make some money. Go company. Kearsey has all the numbers to show you what you need to know.

thats why alot of leases are trainers here. Makes since. But if you go company do they give you a ****ty truck to drive?

Does Company really offer anything? Got to go where they tell me have to take every load they give. What will sell me on comoany though is insurance and benefits.
