    I'm witing this blog to warn others on skyview farms out of gothenburg,N.E. We rented one of their hopper bottoms, paying them 275.00 a week trailer rent, for about 6 months. Then we started pulling our own trailer (reefer) for about another month. The last load we hauled for skyview, we loaded out of dallas,tx, going to vineland,nj. The truck broke down in kentucky, we had another company lined up to haul the load on to nj, but when the driver we had lined up called skyview, they said that they already had one their trucks on the way down to hook up to the trailer and take it on to nj. Skyview called me and said that they were going to charge me 4500.00 dollars to take the load on to nj from ky. I told them that that wasn't going to happen since we were only getting 2300.00 plus fuel surcharge from tx to nj. After 40- 50 phone calls back and forth, and being called a liar, plus being told that it's people like me that are giving the trucking industy a bad name, they agreed to haul the load to nj for 898.00. Skyview hauled the load to nj, brought my trailer back to ky, then 2 weeks later sent me a bill for 1958.62. All of this after they signed an agreement to haul the load to nj out of ky for 898.00. Skyview beat me out of about 4000.00, plus it cost me 4000.00 to have my truck fixed in ky. So be warned drivers, I guess when you operate like this you can afford nice trucks and trailers. Oh by the way, I also read another blog where there are 11 former skyview drivers that have filed a lawsuit against skyview on a lease purchase program that didn't work out.

    I am a current driver with skyview as O/O, quiting next week. Stay far away from this company. they lie to your face loads dont pay as they tell you....I can go on and on
    I lost over 10,000 quiting my last job to come here. now another 3500 because I am breaking the lease agreement they had me sign. They are very rude and dishonest.
    PLEASE STAY AWAY from this co. ,,,,
