    Just bought my 1st truck and looking around at companies that are good outfits to lease to!! Have been noticing quite a few "Crane Transport" trucks from Gainesville, Ga. I would like to see if anyone out here has ever driven for them to see what your experience was or is like over there? I found their website http://www.cranetransportinc.com/ If anyone can tell me anything please feel free to do so. Thanks in advance!

    A friend (you know how that goes) really liked working for them 2007-2011. He lived in Atlanta and was home most weekend and thru the house weekly. His biggest complaint was the pay, he started at 33cpm and was only up to 35cpm when he quit...........

    However you may wanna check their safety record!!

    Dont let that deter you as many of those violations COULD mean poor log book management by their drivers!! Considering the % they pay, you could do alot worse!! If I lived in GA, I wouldnt hesitate to give them a try!!

    What do you need to know?

    I've been a company driver here for going on 4yrs. The safety score is pretty bad. Majority of it being log book related.

    As far as O/O goes all I know is he pays 73% .

    Any new recent updates on the company?
    How much they pay? Are they o/o & company drivers?
    Their terminal is only 23 miles from my house.
    How's the home time?
    What states do they run? Etc., Etc.,Etc.
    I'm seriously considering checking them out but I'd like some driver info.
