What kind of physical work is required to haul cars/SUV's that are delivered to dealerships?

If you're a car hauler, you won't need a log book since you're not hauling logs...

I think you still need a log book if you run over 100 air miles from the home terminal.

Vr it's physical maybe as physical as flat bedding I don't know this. You are climing up and down latter's chaining cars down. Working under cars as well. Used to watch them pick up and deliver from the dealers all the time. Some hall from plants some hall from rail or ship yards. Some hall long range.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Climbing in and out of the cars in all kinds of weather, making sure they are strapped down nice and tight. The harder part would be the proper distribution of weight and making sure you're not stacked too high. I think you need to be nimble and flexible. Those of a larger build would find it more challenging, I think.

I was/am thinking of hauling cars once I get a year or two OTR experience, as it seems pretty interesting and cool to me. Plus I hear the pay is not too shabby either.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
