At the Millis shops, bottles are there, just ask one of the shop guys and give them your truck number. I keep 1 oil, 2 coolant and 2 washer fluid. Same with fuel treatment, I try to keep 2 of those as well.

Thanks for the replies. I sort of figured that was the case. But it's not something for recruiters to crow about!

Also have wiper blades as well and straps and load lock bars available. Which reminds me i need a new one.

On a side note.... Is it odd I get excited when i find an empty trailer with a load bar or set of straps that got left inside? It makes my day.

I still grab straps and load bars.

I give the load bars away to Prime drivers, and the straps to any owner ops I meet.

At West Side Transport, we can buy all that stuff on our fuel card, pay for it ourselves and get reimbursed, or get containers filled at any terminal from their bulk supply.

Terminal:

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.

I don’t have room for a gallon of oil so when I get 1 gallon low I’ll stop at a pilot. I’ll use the fuel card to get a gallon and dump the whole thing in. That stuff might fit in some people’s side box but mines stuffed full with a thousand pieces of equipment. The only additive I’ll keep on the truck is anti gel in the winter.

We charge oil, coolant or washer fluid on our comdata card as needed. Other purchases require approval.

I too buy mine at tractor supply or walmart. Also if anyone finds a need for box def tractor supply currently has the best price. I carry 1 gallon each.
