    Well I decided to lease on to wiley's transport. Seem to be going great the pay is 80% with my trailer. The good thing is all the loads are light 5K to 28K which I have been seeing fuel mileage in the high 7's to low 8's if I keep my foot out of it. Just got paid for my first 2 loads $1.95pm on one $1.66 on the other. Only decuctions phy/unl liab $50 a week OAP $40 a week and escrow $25 a week. People are great small outfit father and son owned. I would have to say they are a god sent I was down waiting on a couple slow paying brokers so I could renew my tags As most know I was out about 4 months with a broken leg and that about bankrupted me was close to loosing it all. I had hauled loads for them before they would call me every week to see if I was going to be in Ga. Well while waiting on them late paying brokers I was feeling down didnt know what I was going to do so I got down on my knees and prayed as soon as I got up the phone rang Kayle with wiley's transport hey daniel you gonna be in Ga any this week well I told her I was waiting on a couple late checks so I could get my tags and I might have to lease on to some one she said hold on let me see if I can get Frank or his dad you can talk to them. The dont supply tags but they was going to break the rule to help in any way they could well that that evening I got the checks in the mail went got my tags the next day call them back up told them I had my tag they asked if i needed fuel money to get down there told I had enought to get there. Got down there they show me how they operate only have a couple lease trucks showed me on the computer their loads and what they paid. Show me the other lease driver pay report he dont have his own trailer so he only gets 67% and after fuel and dect. he was clearing $1800-$2300 a week. Only need plates for 11 states but I have been running back and forth from home to Ga Home on weekend and durning the week. They treat you like family Well I'll try to keep this updated

    Still doing good last month was bad truck was in and out of shop a few times for about a week each time. Had to pay a company in charlotte area $500 to repower a load I was about 20 mile from delivery that only paid me $720 for 280 miles radiator was pouring out water as fas as you put it in, bobtailed home took it to local shop they ordered radiator volvo sent them the wrong one reordered then they sent them one that looked like it had been sitting in the woods for a few years and had 3 holes in it so I got online and ordered one from PA. $990 shipped vs $1400 from volvo plus $600 labor. Then found out EGR cooler was leaking also took truck parked infront of Volvo HQ with hood open and went inside and demanded to see someone with authority and no little wussy seeing that I had taken it in to volvo many times for coolant leak that never got repaired they ended up repalcing the EGR cooler and a few water lines free. then a small metal line that runs around behind the engine was rubbing against a air line and started spraying water had both lines replaced $1200. Then a rubber hose that connect to the metal hose burst went to NAPA got 1 foot of hose for $2 and replaced it called volvo HQ and ask why the dealer did replace it when they had it off it was a little dry and they tighten the clamp to tight they apolgized and said they would deal with the dealer. then alt. went out on reefer but coded clutch belt and I couldnt figure it out because there is no elec. stand by on it had a frozen load took it to TK found out it coded that was because it was programed for elec. standby after hours and cost $500 for alt. Boss was very helpful advanced money for repairs seeing that I had already been down 2 1/2 weeks. But other than than that been working good. Save-a-Lot caused me a load today paying $1400 going back to GA took them too long to unload 6 skids had a 6am didnt get out till 9:30 couldn't make my second stop for 10:00 am so had to reschule for 5am tomorrow
