    I have a 14' high cube van and I'm thinking about leasing it on to Prestige Expedite. What do you know about them?

    I have over 37 years in trucking. I was an owner operator for 13 years, 1973 - 1986, when times were good. I've done expediting before in a dock height straight truck for both FedEx CC and ConWay Now. FedEx sucked and ConWay Now was great, to bad they sold out to Panther.

    In any case I have a 2003 Ford E350, powerstroke, 14' with a 24" sleeper built in it. It has real low miles and it's paid for. I was using it to pull a concession trailer around the country. Right now I need to find a use for it and make some money.

    Prestige and Nations Express are about the only two that are interested in a cube. Prestige says they put me right on where I am. Nations wants me to come to NC and has sign on costs. I've heard stories about Nations not paying, don't know if it's true but that sends a warning to me.

    I'm in arizona, not expediting country so it's hard for me to find some drivers to talk to.

    Just trying to some idea on the company.

    Getting out of Fl with a load is the hardest. Try load boards GPS is one of the best ones around

    Outinc,
    Try contacting Load1, I know they will take cube vans, and have some accounts where all they will use is either a Sprinter or a Cube box that is comparable to a Sprinter. I have a few friends who run with them and they are kept busy. The Owner is a real stand up guy who takes good care of his drivers.
