    Sure. But its not a lone mountain thing. Its a used truck dealer thing. They all do it pretty much the same. When buying a used truck from a used truck dealer it is on the buyer to make sure the truck is in good shape.

    Never have yet. Was going to try once but the load I called on was too cheap & a few minutes later a good load came up on the board.

    Like thaistick said I only try for more money if they call me. And then I usually only do it if the rate is a little lower than I like. Usually just by hesitating the agent will offer to try to get more money.

    In orientation I was told this is how it works. I have my own customer that I might do one load a year for & when I asked in orientation about it they said it would have to run the board. The way around that is have the customer request you.

    lone mountain gives you the oppotunity to have a dyno and inspection done, if you choose not to, you have sign a paper stated that you were given the opportunity and declined. did you decline?

    Most of this megas however will not release the maintenance records. I have seen some exceptions however Schneider being one of them. The reason being a lot of to look at if you look at the maintenance records and purchase based upon that and something failed it would make them liable for a lawsuit. They viewed as being cheaper for you to take your chances without having a background.

    I started here the week before the buyout was announced. I knew it was coming and even had a real good idea who was buying.

    If you've never done flat, this is a good place to learn. If you're older, don't let that scare you away. I never did flat before coming here and I turned 51 just 4 weeks after starting. You won't find a nicer bunch to help you out when the need arises.
