    I have worked for about 7 different trucking companies over 4 1/2 years and finally found the one I love.

    All my trips are about 2000 miles. 47 cents per mile and average about 4k miles per week. I always reset.

    2020 Volvo VNL 860 w/heated leather massage seats, large fridge, 70mph and idle all you need with no hassles.

    Freight is dry van and planning is perfect. I drive an average of 600 miles per day and the Volvo does not tire me out like a Freightliner or Peterbilt, etc. I love this truck! Huge bed turns into table and big fridge/freezer is nice.

    The company atmosphere is super nice and relaxed. It is the best and last trucking job I will ever have.

    If you have a few years experience and a clean record, you can make $1800 a week, driving easy mostly midwest miles. No NYC ever.

    If you have any questions, I would be happy to give you honest answers. They are looking for drivers that are above average to drive their new trucks. You would not regret switching to this company.

    I quit Coldliner Express after 8 days (the worst job I ever had) and came here to Balkan, the best trucking job I ever had. Finally I found the perfect trucking job.

    This is a photo of my Qualcom so you can see how I never sit around making nothing. Great freight, long trips and tight planning are what make a good paycheck, not cents per mile.

    I have had a few new Freightliners and a new 2019 Peterbilt but this 2020 Volvo 860 is really amazing! I could easily drive another 200 miles every day. And, I really sleep well on the huge bed.
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.
