    The list of docked threads at the top of this forum was getting long, decreasing the chance that the docked threads would be read and pushing fresh threads out of sight. Going forward, we're going to use this thread to link to the threads that were docked and others that contain essential information for new drivers.

    I find that flatbed tips and tricks a good thread - perhaps for new (or new to) flatbedders.

    That's in the flatbed forum, right? Correct me if I'm wrong. We'll do a separate thread for other forums.

    Thank you for that, it was getting frustrating scrolling down past all the docked threads.

    If you want to whittle down everything into '5 Most Needed Topics', why not just start a new Category?

    Hi All,
    I'm a newbe as well and still in CDL school with some decisions to make. Can anyone suggest some of the better companies for a newbe to break in with? I'm trying to not step into a nightmare or on a land mine right out of boot camp. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm in the Midwest.
     
    bigbyrc Thanks this.
