    Would like suggestions for companies that upon hire I can be driving a newer truck. When I say newer I don’t mean brand new but something that isn’t a high mileage beat up piece of crap that will keep giving me problems. All the trucks I’ve been driving fall under that category. I just want something reliable that I can make money with. I don’t want to spend all my time standing around with my thumb up my butt. Any suggestions?.

    @Lonewolf2000 Swift, Knight, SRT, US Express, Celedon, JB hunt, Schnieder, Werner, all have new trucks waiting for drivers. Take your pick. And they are automatic.

    Tell them you want a new truck, or you quit. If you have more than 6 months experience.
