Here's what you can start:

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

You might want to look into TMC out of Iowa if you want flatbed. But there are many good companies that run flatbed. Being from Florida, especially South Florida, is somewhat iffy because some companies don't hire from that area (due to it's remoteness from their main freight lanes, I think).

Cypress truck lines runs a nice flatbed outfit. They are in Florida, and they are hiring.

Joseph, if Old School makes a suggestion, it's well worth your time to check it out.

BTW, where in Florida do you live? It can make a difference in regard to your original question.

Cape Coral is in southwest Florida. Now we know your area. Does anybody know what the hiring situation would be from there?

That's a tough area.

Joseph, are you single? Married? Kids? Local family? Are you in a position to relocate?

Big question, because if relocation is an option, then you have many more options.

My kids are here. I moved here a year ago from Greenville SC. Many more opportunities there. My kids mom works from here. No way to move... Yet.
