    there is not much running north south for buckets maybe some ag products. I would bump into a few guys with cotton seed at the mills around Lancaster pa once in awhile.
    Most of it runs east west. Demo out of nyc was the most profitable over the years for buckets but even it has taken a dump. There were good ole boys that would work a couple weeks on the nyc,ohio turn around then go back south on some coal or whatever but I know we didn't have much at all to get back north.. I do know Bruce Oakley comes north a bit. Seen them hauling Demo out of philly during the winter..
    But if your going to look around for freight check out Scrap or Demo.. Also get a trailer with coil racks it gives you an extra option when looking for frieght

    Thanks Boxcar. I have an offer to pull a scrap trailer around VA, MD as well. I see Bruce Oakley up here on the 95North and 495 North. I applied there, but they are a little far west and they didn't have too much running me back out here. Nice people though.
    Just trying to hustle like everyone else.

    Good People ... Loads pay average, depending on area.

    Stay away from U.S. Bulk out of Erie ,PA. Slow paying 60 + days if at all.

    Hey BigSam.
    I checked them out on the web. Their old page used to show the loads and pay and destinations, etc. Now you have to call them up.
    I wanted to work for Oakley out west, but they were a little far out of VA and they didn't have too much coming this way.
    I want to buy my own end dump. Some want a 40x102x72, some want 66 sides, some want a smaller trailer.

    Kind of all over the place......
    Ever heard of Garber Farms out of PA?

    Garber Farms is a TOP SHELF bunch of people. Its 30 days on your money, but a really bunch of people. I haul for them on occasion when it fits.

    The demo out of New England and Ny is paying the same as it did 12 years ago To go to OH and VA thats why my dump is parked and the landfills in OH suck unless they cleaned em up and comeing back lucky to pay for fuel better to run back empty most of the time. Better of hooking up with a company that hauls dirty dirt or hazmat ,pay is much better. I did it for a while going into Model City Ny, Wyandotte MI and Logan Oh a pain some times but the money was much better i gave it up because the company i ran for got bought out buy Waste Management and it was down hill from there. I dont lnow if there still around but Price trucking from Ny used to hire O/O's.

    I was wondering approximately how much it would cost to haul a dump load from Erie, PA to Cleveland. Also if dump trailers are commonly available In the Erie, PA Area.

    Details: Load of misc hardwood. Approx 3 hours loading, driver can be provided with 4 wheeler transportation during loading. The bigger the trailer/more capacity the better. Haul to Cleveland and dump. Both locations are within 1 mile of I-90. We can work out a load back to Erie from the same Cleveland location if necessary(less than 2 hours loading time). Under 120 miles each way. Cash paid we can barter nicely too, no BS.

    Thank You!
