    I did a search and don’t see anything recent...

    I’ve been riding it out but I’ve applied for a few companies that only pull conestoga and or covered wagons. The first company to call me was Loudon County. I’ve read and heard mixed things about this company.

    Give me the good, bad, and the ugly.

    Some real world, unbiased information would be awesome.

    I have some injuries from outside of trucking. I love flatbed, I love securing the loads. I even love tarping but my back just can’t handle dealing with tarps anymore.

    Thanks for the insight y’all!

    You mean to tell me Alexandria has something for actual trucking? The land of Federal Era Buildings and historical landmarks aboundeth there?

    Covered wagon or congos will take care of the tarping. However in high wind the Covered wagon will need some careful thought as to how you want that wind to help you rather than try to take that one peice tarp away.

    Owned by P&S of Birmingham, AL. Bit as of two months ago still being largely operated as a separate entity. However, all maintenance and repair requests go through P&S so....good luck?

    Lots of aluminum products, mainly Alcoa. Some steel. Pay ain't great, bit you won't starve either. Benefits aren't bad for a single, bit they really scream if you want to bring in family on the insurance.

    Trucks are stripped down bare basic models. You generally get a bunk heater. Idle cutoff at 5 minutes, temperature dependent. IF your truck is set up correctly, it will idle at below (I THINK) 30 degrees. If your truck is NOT set correctly, prepare to sleep cold.

    Source: I'm a former HS Express (yet another good carrier being destroyed by P&S).

    Hey just curious. Didn't Purdy Bros used to have something to do with Loudoun County Trucking?

    Purdy Brothers and Loudon County Trucking have separate teams as far as dispatching, etc., but they are in the same building and are sister companies with much in common. P&S owns both these days, however.

    Never worked for them. Just remember a video someone uploaded on YouTube showing one of their loser drivers urinating on the pavement next to his truck at a pickle park while the bathrooms were only a few feet away.
