    I am lease purchasing a truck for Garrison.
    In the 45 years that I have been on the road this is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Yeah. The rumor has it, the chicken they haul is very cheap so watch yourself. Garrison has a rep of being a great company. If leasing is your thing just watch what you haul.

    Isn't R.E. Garrison a truck broker that has it's own trailers, kinda like Riley Whittle out of Cinncy?

    No Garrison is a full blown trucking company with company trucks and all. Company trucks for the most part run regional. O/O run true otr. They also have a broker divison called Heart Heart of Dixie.

    I am happy with them but you better like to run because they will run you hard. They give you the choice of Paper logs or E logs. They never bother you about your logs as long as they are legal when you turn them in and that you dont get nailed at the weight stations.

    Wow, bumping a 3 yr old thread!!! Garrison used to have a yard nearby in Zephyrhills, don't what happened to them though, used to see them all around but not so much anymore. Didn't know they did a l/p deal, knew they stopped company drivers though.... good luck!!!

    R E Garrison Is a rip off company. Yes the chicken is cheap. I lasted about 5 weeks with them. I never been cheated and lied too so much in a short time. I would pick up loads on Monday and not able to deliver till Friday. Or I would set for 2 days waiting on a chicken load. They say they are no force dispatch. Big Lie. Turn down a cheap load that pays a 1.10 and see how long u set. Fleet Manger is a start ###. Turn down a cheap load and He will call U, and tell U if u don't take this load U will set till it is cover. I got so much more to say......... Stay away from this company. Your nothing but a number and nothing else.

    WOW! That is a big contrast from what the others have said about them, I wonder how long you will be here on the forum before you find something wrong with it? Till then Take Care.
