    I am still there.


    You should be good to go for your first trip. See how high the trailer rides and adjust it before the next trip it should be good to go from then on.

    Let us assume, hypothetically, an individual decided a new truck was the way to go. Which would be better, lease or own?

    definitely would not lease to do this type of work, mileage will go waaaaay over what is allowed in the lease agreement.

    I wasñ't sure if a business lease had more liberal mileage allowances.

    not sure what the stipulations would be on business lease but i would imagine money wise it would be higher to do that than to just purchase....again im no expert, hell i went against advice and purchased a new 13 ram to do this with, but ive always been leery about purchasing used vehicles, plus with some luck i can roll maintenance free (with the exception of routine maintenance which i will do myself) for awhile. Am i making a payment ? Sure am, but i was making a payment before i thought about doing this for a truck that didnt do anything but haul my butt to work. Do i have any plans of getting rich doing this? Absolutely not, but hopefully i can average out what i made working for a walmart distribution center without the "siberian salt mines " work ethics they had there. That is my bonus, being able to make a little money without worrying about production or someone staring over my shoulder all the time trying to write me up.

    If I was you I would run as far as you could away from foremost transport!!! I worked for them for a few years and they used to be a good company to work for but over the past year there has been a lot of management changes and staff changes. They also dropped a lot of there backhaul customers. So they are few and far between. The dispatchers like to pull a lot of shady s@$t to accomplish there own agenda. They will promise you the world though. Just wait for the slow season when you are waiting on a list for week's to get a load and a few of there pets are running non stop. Just my advice. I would not recommend foremost transport to anyone. They still owe me money from last fall witch I gave up on a couple months ago

    Apparently you didnt put much effort into running for Foremost!! I've been there over 2 years and have made great friends and good pay. If you deliver when you say you will, call in when you are supposed to and follow their simple rules, they are great to work with.
    Most Transport companies pay the same or close to it. Its up to you on how you spend your time and money. You cant eat out every night and stay in motels.
    One bad apple here shouldnt ruin the whole bushel.
    All companies have a waiting list so dont let anyone tell you different!!

    Are you saying they have a waiting list for drivers wanting work?? That would be pure BS. There ads in hundreds of newspapers and Kijiji looking for drivers for RV delivery. Then add in the billboards that Camping World has ! More jobs available than drivers wanting to work. I wonder what the turnover rate is??

    They do run a waiting list from end of October until February. And they have a very high turn over rate as far as driver's. Most people think they are gonna make a ton of money doing it. You can make a living doing it, and some do a little better than other if you kiss the right #####.but Bob the builder is right you can't stay in hotels and eat out all the time. But a 1.28 to a 1.40 a loaded mile is far from good money! I don't run for less than 2 bucks a mile and have more than enough work to keep me happy
