    I will be looking to leave KLLM in about a month and just making some preparations before I leave. I live in Houston and am a L/P driver.

    I would like to return the truck to the Lancaster terminal close to Dallas. Lease is walk away lease. However when I was in orientation they said if we leave the company we need to return the truck to the Jackson, MS terminal. If I left the truck at the Lancaster terminal when I leave is it possible to put abandonment on my DAC even though the truck was returned to a company terminal?

    Yes!

    Leaving it on any yard without getting paperwork will result in them putting an abandonment on your record.

    Send a QC message notifying them of your intention to part ways and ask where you should drop the truck.

    In orientation, they tell you to turn the truck in where you picked it up, but let them confirm this again on three QC--NOT the phone.

    Take a picture of the QC response.

    Good luck.

    Return the truck to where they want you to, because they certainly can hold that against you. Just go rent a car, mini van, or pickup if you have to. Cya on down the road Houston. Yes, certainly take photos of departing messages as mention above off the QCOMM.

    Thanks, for the info. I will ask them if it possible to leave at Lancaster terminal. If they say no then I will ask them for load to Jackson, MS and return there and have my wife meet me there in our vehicle.

    Does anyone that has experience with KLLM know how they are about giving back maintenance account monies. Do they look for any reason and keep it for chicken s*** reasons or are they good about returning it as long as there is normal wear and tear as stated in the contract. My truck is in tip top shape have done all regular maintenance and have receipts to show of maintenance work done.

    They are fair, BUT...

    You don't get it until after you've gone for 30 days.
