Hey everyone,
I'm new to the trucking business. I've had my authority a little over two months. My insurance policy seems extremely high (we put 6,800 down and pay 2,789 a month). My truck note is about 609 a month and we pay a driver 125 per day plus $15.60 an hour over 8 hours. We had to hire a driver because I work full time as a union carpenter. Gas and tolls depends on the loads that we get. This has been a complete headache thus far. Before giving up, I want to make sure I've exhausted...

Hi everyone. FIrst post post here but I've seen several of the youtubers I follow mention these forums so I thought I'd seek some advice.
Untill Today I thought I was going to be starting at CDL school on Monday the 28, in Tampa sponsored by Swift. For some reason however that fell through. I think it's probably my fault, although the background check they did showed exactly what I told them it did (on DUI conviction in 2002) I apparently filled out one of their forms saying the last time I...

Looking for company sponsored CDL training.

I've replaced every component except the control itself, the ducting and housing for the evap coil, held just fine for 2 years no problem
