    Hey guys, AMAZON in Vernon CA is the worse place to make deliveries..
    Amazon will refuse to receive their load .its excuses are that they “don’t have enough room for more than 1 pallet “
    I was lucky that I got paid for layover and everything else, but a friend of mine tried to delivery 3 pallets last Friday and today , after 7 days , he will delivery the last pallet .
    A broker just call me to haul a load with 4 deliveries and one of them is at Amazon in Vernon . I said NO!!

    No.
    You ask how much per day will you make for sitting. $700 a day I’d sit. 5 days $3500

    Good luck with that. I told the broker I’ll haul it for 2,400 from slc Utah to Vernon . + a rate confirmation stating that they will pay me 500.00 per day . They will not do that .

    I would have said, ok sign right here and put refused with seal intact. Call the broker and let them handle it after that.

    Had this happen to me at the Memphis Amazon distribution center. They refused the load because the delivery number was outdated. The company I drove for refused to address the problem and they all went home. In the morning the truck was clean and returned in excellent condition.

    Amazon will screw you up. They have a load date for today but will have a delivery date a month out. You gotta pay close attention. I picked up a load in Georgia tried delivering it to Mira Loma 3 weeks early. Amazon expected me to sit on it and wait.
