You might want to join OOIDA. You could probably get referrals there if nobody here has suggestions. I'm curious about your decision to own or lease before you've finished school.

OOIDA:

Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association

Who They Are

OOIDA is an international trade association representing the interests of independent owner-operators and professional drivers on all issues that affect truckers. The over 150,000 members of OOIDA are men and women in all 50 states and Canada who collectively own and/or operate more than 240,000 individual heavy-duty trucks and small truck fleets.

Their Mission

The mission of OOIDA is to serve owner-operators, small fleets and professional truckers; to work for a business climate where truckers are treated equally and fairly; to promote highway safety and responsibility among all highway users; and to promote a better business climate and efficiency for all truck operators.

Lol yea I've been a bit busy just got a new truck will be uploading pic shortly I've had two trainers both lease and i handled everything from start to finish and they acted as if they were co driver to get my bearings down as a lease op.. wealth of knowledge they gave me . I have plenty of confidence in my driving ability but more so in my time management so instead of jumping to company i prepared for the lease i will be updating again in 4-6 weeks and a follow up after that in end of april beginning of may since reefer runs pick up with produce . Right now frieght is slow and im prepared for slow weeks till march

Have reefer runs changed that much in 16 years? I know back then produce would get a little thin in California for a few weeks in February, so we'd load in the valley in Texas or just into Mexico... Sometimes Nogales. We never slowed down.

Prime doesnt go into mexico but they do go to the border for produce. Mainly as solo most loads will be northeast for me. And right now theres a bit of drivers there since snow is gone and i wont be able to get floral loads since thats time sensitive with multi stops . Theres just less frieght jan through march. Meat hauls still there though. Ive gotta run smarter and rely on fm to keep me mobile. .. whenever i get back in the road. Been stuck in Springfield Mo since sunday finishing paper work and classes

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Years ago used Edone & Graham in Norfolk. Don't know if they're truck experts, but they were great for us and recommended by my attorney Father in Law.

Tell 'em a Nelligar referred you.

Good luck.

Sclose757,

I live in Chesapeake VA (right next door) and have been using Bill Robbins here in Deep Creek. He is a little expensive, but very good (he has folks from all walks of life including truck drivers for clients). I also have found another CPA that has mostly truck drivers for clients that I am going to try this year. Call me if you want to know more.

Miss Red, I used the folks there at Prime and was very disappointed with their performance to say the least.

Crap. I'm planning on using them. I tried to search "CPA my town truck driver" and various things like that..and didn't come up with anything.
