Second chance carrier for teams.

Laura, you are so right. People are far more inclined to tell others or poor experiences than of good ones. That being said, holy smokes there's so much bad on Western Express. I'm making calls tomorrow to see what I come up with.

Thanks!

Thank you for the feedback. Agreed on what you are saying preventable accidents are still accidents.

Regardless I'm going out with him and we will see how it goes. I was just hoping to see if anyone could advise on other carriers aside from Western Express? If there are other options that would be super. Otherwise we roll with them for the time that we need to to.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply. I understand what you are saying. I don't want to air out his dirty laundry but they were minimal. No other people were involved and frankly he ratted on himself thinking he was doing the right thing. So yes, driving down the road I have full confidence in his abilities. Had he not said anything, honestly, he probably wouldn't have anything on his report. Live and learn I guess. He did what he felt was right.

Your comment does raise a question though. If he were to get into an accident or heck even if I were to get into an accident. That only would go on the driver, correct? His mistakes are his just as mine are mine.

Second chance carrier for teams.

Hello everyone, it's nice to be on the site. I have been here several times as a guest to check things out and have learned a lot! There is a wealth of knowledge here so I decided it was time to register!

I'm a new driver with about 4 months OTR and would like to team up with my brother. He is also a new driver with about 5 months OTR as well. We have been running into a couple issues because my brother has two preventable accidents (albeit minor) on his record. He was termed for those accidents with that carrier. Since then we have been searching and so far only found Western and Trans Am willing to take him. Can anyone suggest another team company? He has about 3 months before those accidents are over a year old and then Covenant will take him. Frankly, we are not knowledgeable enough (yet, still learning) to do the Trans Am route because that is a lease op. To little time in the industry for that and Western Express seems to have horror story after horror story. So I'm a little cautious on joining with them.

Please advise! Thanks!!!
