    I'll sit and wait for your truck and you can have my 07 Volvo with the old quallcomm and all the unfixed damages and other problems from the last driver who jack knifed this thing. The hole in the roof is my favorite.

    No worries, you are getting paid a fair hourly rate while the truck is moving right?

    Hey not all old Volvo's are bad. Mine is 08 with 480k and they are not getting it back until they make me turn it in. No break downs, doesn't loose coolant or oil, no goofy electrical problems and easy as can be to scale, heaviest load was over 46k.

    While you are at the terminal ask dispatch do they have a daycab you can run some local runs until ur truck gets fix, do this everyday you are there, if they say no today ask agin tomorrow, (ask the terminal manager if nobody else trying to help you out) running some local runs you will make more money than sitting there getting $50 per day.
     
    Zukimart Thanks this.
