>Obtaining a CDL: How do?
Community College or a dedicating truck driving school. Do your research and don't get sucked into a "school" that's actually just a meat grinder for a shit company. Do not pay over $5000 for a course that lasts several months.
>How can I into avoidings shit companies?
Here are some decent/good companies:
If you don't see the company you're looking at included on this list, lurk moar.

>I could totally go to school but I'd rather be a trucker.
If you think you'll love the lifestyle, maybe. You'd be better off getting a """""real""""" job. You can fall back on trucking at any time, but it is essentially a path of decent money for those that fail at everything else.
You can have good business sense and work ethic and make it big as an owner operator, but you would do even better at any other job.

Babby's first trucking job. Local delivery, M-F job. Only part I'm nervous about is making routes since it seems like every day is always slightly different. Does Google maps or Waze or some other GPS allow you to input all your stops and set up a route for you?

Anonymous 2016-06-23 00:56:35 No.15315598
My rand mcnally gps allows for multiple stops. Also, if youre worried about it buy a map.

PepsiFag 2016-06-23 00:57:25 No.15315608
I'm sure you can route multiple stops, but I just want to warn you to be careful using Google Maps and similar GPS apps. It will route you through lots of roads you don't necessarily want to take a truck down. If I need to GPS something, I just look at it on a map and get there via main roads.

Yeah I know regular apps will set you through residential areas and stuff, I think I will get a hang of the locations soon to know their general location and to avoid getting off the highway early to go through neighborhoods.

That looks pretty cool, though I imagine it needs its own data plan? Problem is the guy I'm replacing has been doing it for 22 years so the company has no GPS units or maps, I'd have to get my own.

For a dash mounted gps? No. Its plug-n-play. Whichever one you get make sure it comes with lifetime map upgrades. It might cost a little extra but its well worth it.

I've heard that from other crst drivers too. The maintenance is just as bad they won't authorize repairs unless you take em to court or pay out of pocket. And this is on company rigs. Owner ops get a special kind of dicking.

The Garmin Dezl units also support dash cams. I'm sure the Rand McNally TND line works fine, but I had several drivers advise me to avoid them and get a dezl. They all claimed the newer TND devices blow.
Probably just trying to talk nonsense in hopes that he'd drop it and not go to court, but that didn't work.

Also also BTW Dick Simon was another Utah-based blight on the industry, but the company went under after their horrific mistreatment of employees got them in shit too deep to stay afloat.
However, the members of the board (Dick's kids) proceeded to strip the company of assets sold at ridiculous discounts to new corporations under their own names and continued business as usual under lower profiles.

>But the more axles, the more brakes.

That was the argument CTP and the other trucking lobbyists used, but they didn't bring any hard data to congress to back it up. No studies, no track tests. Lobbying fail.

The safety argument went beyond stopping distances anyway. people were asking questions about cornering stability and the effect of the extra weight in a truck/car crash.

>How else would overweight permits ever be possible?
The idea behind permitting is that you're doing something special and unusual that doesn't happen every day. It's OK for that to be less safe than a business-as-usual load.

On average how many days a week do you guys actually sleep at truck stops? If you don't stop at a truck stop every night, do you stop during the day to have a shower? I'm finding I maybe end up at a truck stop once a week, and it doesn't even necessarily have a shower... I also find while I can stop for up to 2 hours each day and still be able to drive afterwards for the missed time I'm always rushed into my unload/pick up.
tl;dr do you guys actually get a shower in everyday? because i haven't showered since Monday and I hate it...

I have a ton of plastic v-boards, got the telescoping stick that they sell, works great, throw the straps, lift the board. Move straps with the lifter
I haul that stuff from Mansfield all the time, company makes me tarp, pays for it, they used to not pay, told me tarp on my own time, nope, plus the crappy plastic wrap always ends up ripping, shredded, gone halfway to the receiver, had a few refusals, now I get to tarp, take a picture of the load and of the tarp job and once I get to the consignee, send the pics to the shipper, receiver and my dispatch, my company even sends my photo to pick up and drop off locations so they know who is coming, just a small outfit, only 25 trucks, so customer service is a major priority, I even have to wear a uniform, kept presentable, I have to ETA everyone along the way, some companies care, some give zero shits

Roehlretard 2016-06-24 02:42:37 No.15322700
I agree with everything you said, but my company will not pay me to tarp and they will not buy real edge protectors, so that's the way I have to do it.

Unfortunately, most of these go directly to job sites and they don't give a fuck by and large. Oh well. If Roehl wants the small fish contracts they can have them, I only get paid to do what they tell me to.

This guy replied for me >>15322625

I was going to say, there's nothing inherently incorrect or dangerous about the strapping job. I'm sure it held fine, and would have held fine with just the straight straps over top. I'm seeing a lot of damaged product, the worst of which are the stacks at the back, damaged on several corners. What were you hauling?

Mostly I have an issue with the angled straps. They become longer when they're angled, and if they slip at all then the straps become very loose very quickly. Never seen anyone do a butt strap on the bottom of the back stacks either. I see that one is held in place by the X straps, which is good, but not sure if it was necessary.

Not trying to be a dick. Whatever gets you paid.

Basically this.

What's the difference in dedicated and regional? Which gets more home time?

I'm 22 thinking of becoming a trucker. My plan is to OTR 24/7 until I save $100K or turn 30, whichever comes first. Then try to get a dedicated or regional gig, buy a house, and spend weekends fishing.

Anonymous 2016-06-24 03:45:17 No.15323135
they both get the same hometime.
dedicated ensures you are going to the same place over and over so itll probably be better planned out. otr is a crapshoot but variety

want to compare my salary: i drive a DZ truck, work 40-45 hours a week, i do like 20 stops a day. im getting like 40k a year with good benefits and 4 weeks paid vacation.

I can't tell if I'm doing alright or if I'm underpaid and I can't decide if its worth it to make more money if I have to work 70 hours a week for it.

Sounds like you're doing pretty not bad. I assume you're driving semi and not a straight truck, eh? I'd say that's pretty average for a tractor trailer driver back home doing drive and drop sorta shit, but those guys work way more hours than 40-45 a week. Always possible to make more money locally if you get on with a larger company too.

Dedicated drives for a single account. For example, you will be picking up from the same Target distribution center and delivering to the same stores over and over again. Regional is more like OTR, but within a specified region. It could be never leaving the state or it could be your home state plus surrounding. For example, I drive regional for a company out of Richmond, VA. I drive Virginia all the way down to Florida sometimes. I work Tues-Sat, off every Sunday and Monday 100%. I may be delivering a trailer load of recycled paper or a refrigerated load of frozen chicken. It's not the same shit over and over again. I tried dedicated for Target out of Stuarts Draft, VA for a few months and I hated it.

I like that you plan on staying out 24/7. As an OTR trucker, that's pretty much the lifestyle if you wanna get paid. I see all these new truckers complaining they ain't get no "$1K a week" like they were promised when they are going home every weekend. You gotta stay out at least 2 months at a time in my opinion to maximize your paycheck. I started when I was 24 and the only home time I took for my first 3 years besides Christmas and 4th of July was whenever I needed to visit a doctor or DMV.

I know more than a handful of truckers that have nice houses paid off for, driving Mustangs/F150s, brand new boats/RVs, etc.

If you can't save $100K as a trucker, then you are really fucking retarded. Being 21 you shouldn't have any bills but a cell phone and maybe Netflix, Spotify, etc.

Most drivers don't.
The more fastidious ones will supplement showers with baby wipes and other similar spot-hygiene tricks on off-days.

I don't think youre being a dick. I think it looks silly which is why I used it in the OP.

This is polystyrene foam insulation, which as I said earlier goes mostly straight to job sites. There they stuff the bulk of the panels into the walls, and for the most part they understand that a few of them will have damage and they use those pieces in corners and near the top where they use partial width panels anyway.

Honestly, seriously I don't really want to do it, but it has to stay on the trailer, even after I've dropped it and johnny-my-first-load takes it and forgets that he has mirrors.
