    As of immediatley!!! No more Blue Beacon Truck Wash for TMC...

    They just will not play ball with TMC and lower wash fees...

    So now being Blue Beacon was probably 75% of the wash sites, TMC will pay for extra fuel and the driver will pay with extra oor to wash at Eagle, Truck O Mat or whatever place they can jew the price down....Dirt lot truck wash's should be the norm from this point forward....Thata way TMC....Blue Beacon will fold just like EZ-Pass....NOT!!!

    Say it ain't so, Joe! Yeah, got the message, too. At least with Eagle, it's easy to calcule how long you'll be there; count the number of trucks in line in front of you, add 1 for yourself, and that's how many hours you're about to lose.

    There's alot of truth to what you say soundman!!! The Eagle in Milton is the worst...Dirty water, Muddy pot holes on the Exit and major time consuming....Well I guess with the truck being turned down, fuel optimizer and the wash policy time is really not an issue anymore...ofcourse until the appointments started to be missed and deliveries show up late....just keeps getting better and better as the days go on....

    They might as well give us white Volvos cause we are getting more and more like Swift. When Erin sent out the message last night about the picture and joke contest for driver appreciation I sent a message back and said you guys want to show appreciation give us ez pass back and turn our trucks back up. She sent me a message today and said is that your joke. I have a road test for someone else on friday as long as they get me home and I'm out of here. Not the same company I started out with.

    66 out of 113 wash locations gone (58.4%). Only 47 left nationwide (and Ontario). Looking for rainy days and a bottle of spray soap.

    Oh wow.. That's gonna be fun. You are right, they probably owe them money and don't want to pay them.

    Gee I wonder whats next with them? The holy of holy was getting your truck washed every week. I thought they should have dumped that idea a long time ago or do it a once or twice a month as to me it was just a waste of money every week. I don't know how many times i washed my truck and it was snowing, just to get the truck dirty 5 minutes later.

    With the limited place to go wash I don't see how once a week truck washing will work, didn't they relax that though?
