    So useing your theory drivers should leave an expensive depreciating asset in the driver's parking lot so "your guy" is comfortable where he is applying for work. Sure, makes sense to me.

    Okay, I'll tell you. More than likely, your man is more worried about his image than his money. I drive a '93 Chev 3/4 ton 4x4, because it works, and because I use it once a week to go to work and back.

    EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Some people just can't help themselves, it's all about an inflated EGO!!!!!

    ps: My 2000 GMC 1/2 ton is my winter vehicle, in the summer time I drive a 1984 Buick Le Sabre that I bought in an estate sale 5 years ago. I'd sooner INVEST my money in myself (property/retirement) than something that depreciates.

    Checking this site can help you stay away form companies that run you into the ground. Under Fatigued Driving (Hours-of -Service) if the numbers are high, like with one company I was with (over 60%) you know they will make you run your ### off. This company gave you loose leaf logs. Many time I had to do a rewrite. If you see numbers like that RUN.

    Ok you guys calm down. It appears some people have missed the entire point. Yes I learned years ago how to deduce many things simply by examining the things that they have a direct effect on. In this scenario the people that a trucking company employs. I know many real good companies and if you look in there parking lot the drivers cars reflect the wages they earn. There is nothing complicated about it's just natural progression.
    Similiarly I have driven into many yards (and right back out) where it was obvious by the beaters the drivers were driving that the guys weren't making what they should be. Then I'd ask around about them and sure enough it would be one horror story after the other. The usual stuff , low rates , shorting miles , I always got a kik out of the (you unload or load and the first 2 hours are free)..That's when I've told more that one company to close there eyes ...everything they see is free...So needless to say they didn't like my attitude. But what they really meant is #### ...we can't baffle this one with our ######## and lies..So anyway guys don't take my word for it. Try observing these things and you'll see i'm right.
    Have a good ride..
