if getting the truck washed every week is mandatory by you company, well that is part of your job description, great go do it. And i am sure that if it was my job description I would go do it, but its not. my company pay for a washing once every two months.
if youa re an o/o or wanna show off or it is in ur job description then have at it, but it really does not matter. ans why wast money and water on a weekly washing?
one guy may amke more because he does not go to the truck wash the other guy will make more becasue he gets better laods,
how much does he lose cpm on the truck wash, to me spending one hour to wash is around 63 miles i could have been down the road.
my truck only goes 65 mph, and to go down the road and average 600 miles a day means no stopping, get your fuel and get outta there, no wasting time. no stopping the truck. move the truck 300 miles before i even stop to pee. but at the end of my shift i have moved 600 miles and thats with out cheating my book, if i get creative i can go 800+ and that just means more money,
also, all of you out there that are gonna brow beat more for cheating my book, you all have done it, everyone does. usually the only time i cheat my book is on the load home. and i am gonna wash the truck when the two months is up. probably on a sunday while waiting to deliver if i can find an iowa 80.
how much of your bottom line do you lose by washing, time spent? supplies and tricked out crap light chicken lights, chrome and cool decals???
and its ok that YOU BELIEVE the customer likes the tricked out ruck.
what is reality and what you believe may be separate. but that is ok, it makes you happy.
