    I love flats, but until rates get back up to paying a premium for flatbed + OTR (right now our settlements are similar) , I'm staying put doing intermodal.

    Flats are a HARD work and as much as I like the work, I refuse to do it and not get properly compensated for it......

    Don't know, the one guy I asked about his numbers couldn't tell me anything but that he makes $2k a week take home.

    Lots of the OO trucks I see look less than desirable and a lot of junk cars in the parking lot so... I don't know lol.
     
    JJKid and RERM Thank this.

    What is so hard about tossing a few straps and dragging out a couple chains? Tarping is the worst part and all it involves 99 percent of the time is unrolling them and hooking some bunjee cords
