    They haul just about anything you can fit on a flat. Decent place to get started in flatbed as they had good securement and tarping training when I went through orientation. And they seemed to keep their equipment in good shape.

    They lease those Kdubs so it's really not "their" equipment.

    They aren't leased, Melton purchases their trucks, and I don't see what this has to do with anything.

    If you need proof, you could always buy a used Melton truck, but you'd have to buy it from Melton Truck Sales as they sell their own equipment when they're done too. You can even buy their old trailers that have hauled lots of STEEL COILS in the past (just to stay relevant).
     
    Bean Jr. Thanks this.

    Didn't really know or care if they were leased or not, I know they do their own maintenance for the most part and inspect you anytime you roll through a terminal. I know the one I had was a pretty nice ride, specially for a "starter" company. *shrug*

    Another one post wonder. Asked his question and hasn't been back looking for answers. Can't help but wonder why he even bothered in the first place. (shrug)
