That's nice.I'm taking all my IFTA knowledge and applying it to beer prices/taxes in different states. Better for planning resets
I wasn't talking to you [quoting Tazz shoulda been a slight hint] but thanks for sharing.You understand that I don't give a crap about what you think? Good.
Are you actually making money with a Quality truck?Orientation isn't too bad.... No pay but they do put you in a hotel and provide 3 meals a day. 2-3 days to complete that. Dealing with quality leasing is a bit of a pain.... If you go with a new truck you will be in and out relatively fast. If you go used, you may be there a few days waiting for maintenance and repairs etc. they are really pushing the Pro-Stars. The recruiters will tell you that all freight is $1.69-$2.29 per mile (of which you are paid 70%), but that is not true. They have some very low-paying runs. On the up-side, some are paying over $3 per mile, and you have the right to refuse a load. You also get 70% of the fuel surcharge. I've done two loads so far, and with the FSC, made $1.13 cpm on a 1400 mile run and $1.25 on a 450 mile run. They tried to give me a load that was 1300 miles at .69 cpm but I refused it and got a higher paying load that was only 9,000 pounds. Another guy who I went to orientation with has done $1.41 and $1.63 on his first two loads. Additional stop pay is $50. Mostly drop and hook but there are some live loads. So far, not too bad but I'll update as I do some more runs.
I used my walk-away option last year when my son got diagnosed with cancer. Took a local job so I could spend more time with him. Thankfully that is behind us and he is cancer free. As far as making money with a quality lease truck, it can be done but it's difficult. Don't sign on with Celadon or their affiliated carriers. There is a list of carriers that Quality partners with and some of them seem decent, like Mercer.Are you actually making money with a Quality truck?
