I been driving for a year now and my buddy about 9 months we are thinking about teaming up but the problem we have with every company we try to go to is that we dont live in same state i live in NC and he in GA about 6-7 hours apart theres some companies that say we will have to split hometime at eachothers houses but we want to do it at our own homes so is there any company any1 knows of that we can team up and do hometime at our own homes?thank you

Well, CRST had a 20/10 three way split. Three drivers where two drive for 20 days, and one is off for 10 days.

Basically you drive with one person for 10 days, and another person for 10 days and then are off for 10. I don't know if they still offer it.

If its that important,you just alternate home time,the other driver continues solo,while the other driver takes his home time or.. Split the cost of extra fuel between the two drivers. I doubt many companies are going to let you burn a whole tank of fuel,dropping off team mate,driving home,then driving back.

We know no company is gona let us do that we are aware of that we are talking about whoever drops who off gets a load to go home then when time to come out gets a load to pick them back up

I really don't think this should ever be a problem. Its only 7 hours away. Here's how its going to work, they'll find you guys a load that goes through NC and then either delivers or drops in GA. The driver who lives in GA will be dropped off on route and the driver who lives in GA will either drop it or deliver the load then go home.

Here's a real world example I went through when dropping my student off in GA. We got a load from PA and routed ourselves through his hometime of Atlanta, I dropped him off and then went to FL to deliver the load.

I don't see this being a problem with any carrier. If they tell you that you guys have to split hometime then mark that company off your list. Until then, keep applying to all the companies using this link and find the one that will allow you to take hometime exactly as I had described. That's how it should work.
