    Ain’t that the truth, I’ve been mostly doing flatbed over the years, but I can still git ‘er done. One thing though, I’ve never driven a single axle truck that short and when I was backing into a parking spot on the yard that thing felt like it could fit anywhere.

    Thats messed up. I had about a year left on mine as well and I didn’t have to get a new one. I guess I got lucky. Oh well. That’s what’s up. Good luck on that P&D. Not for me. Too many hours for me man. They don’t pay over time so P&D is not worth for me. If they paid overtime then working 14 hours every day would be appealing but since they don’t I’ll stick to linehaul lol. Congrats though man. Overall it’s a good company and everyone helps each other out. Well the drivers do at least. I think you will like it and find it will be a nice place to start settling down and think about Cooper for a place for retirement.

    Yes indeed these single axles tractors make miracles :D. Ill see if i can snap a pic of a tonka truck the company currently has. now those tractors turn and back up the same as a yard mule.

    I can attest that most LTL drivers help each other out. This is one of the many reasons why I like LTL is such a close knit, you eventually will find out that mostly all drivers dispatch bounce from ltl to ltl.

    You ain’t never lied brother. Man I can’t even remember the last time I backed a trailer. Lol no more backing for the rest of my career. Pull into a yard and drop the set. Lol I used to be real good but now I probably look like a student and truck driving school

    I never did understand why they bounce like that. It’s pretty much same every where you go. Except AAA Cooper and Estes is probably the only two LTL companies you can start out in linehaul everywhere else you start out in the city and stay there for years until a road position open up

    That must be on a residential route maybe? Noticed the 48’ and a liftgate.

    @Matt1924 the route I share with the Copper driver is mix with residentials and going inside the airport along with warehouses.
