    I do it at 3.25% of the load with a $45 minimum.

    Just got home yesterday, sitting on the couch tired and just decompressing....load pops up... I'm just watching it with mild interest... it's going 1100 miles posted at 35.... I yawn, hope that stuff's around next week I'm thinking....20 min later, it's at 38.... 15 min later it's at 4.... I'm thinking "maybe I can put off what I have to do for another week".... 10 min later it's at 44.... 44....44.... "man, I should move on that", is what I'm thinking....

    But, I didn't.

    I think I might have screwed up...lol......

    Anyway, it feels good to be home.

    I shoulda jumped on that load.

    Welcome to trucking.

    The best loads are always when you're taking time off....

    The less you want to move, the more they want to pay you to do it. An anomaly I live as well.

    I haven't seen anything like last Tues since....

    Makes it easier to relax, instead of sitting there thinking, "man, I really need to call on that load..." lol

    Next week when I'm ready to go...... there probably won't be nothin...lol

    So how does the driver lay for the service upfront? Online banking or check?

    Our company charges 8.5%
    Only have one driver to dispatch and he's making 3k-4k weekly doing the triangle in Texas (Dallas, Houston, Austin)

    Not sure if that's too much or not.

    It usually takes a day or two to do a EFT. A personal check would need to be mailed or overnighted. Fees are attached to most Comchecks or similar guaranteed checks. It depends on what works best for your situation.
