    They screwed over me, and 2 other drivers. They took the truck because because I was home for 6 days, but they didn't tell me they were taking it. The note was paid out of my settlement and the contract said I was not required to be available. The truck had all of my clothes, shoes, tools, brand new gland hands and gallons of oil in side box. Brand new samsung smart, electric skillet, TV, microwave, my work phone, brand new CB radio, items to my laptop, $500 rand McNally, $65 road atlas, a $125 cooler, ALL OF MY THINGS taken by them. I drove in my car to Chicago to go pick it all up Saturday, they made me wait until Monday, only to tell me they tossed my things. They handed me a folder that had my ss card, birth certificate and med card and that's it. Said they tossed my stuff due to covid. The police was called, then suddenly they drove to wherever the truck was and brought back the microwave, cooler, cb and gps. Said they had nothing else, including my 32 inch TV. Then they refused to give me a copy of the contract, my copy was in the truck they took! They police told them legally they had to. Now I'm in the process of finding an attorney. There wasn't a breach of contract, they were entirely in the wrong! The police also told me this isn't the first time they had to come out because of a situation with Select One. Apparently they do thus to drivers all the time. I am entirely hurt about items that was in that truck that I will likely never see again. Especially my phone. I had a lot of sentimental photos in there I can never get back. I was almost in tears over my things, and all they did was call the police and say I was a disturbance. I tried to get information on why they took the truck, the only thing he said to me was, "lack of communication". It had been 6 days, and they knew I was at home. Truck was safe and secure. I will never let this go.

    Make a detailed list w values and go to small claims court. After you prevail and they still will not pay you go to the courthouse and show the judgement and get a writ of execution. It allows police seizure of the company's assets or they will attach the bank account of the company. You will have to do the work of finding the local financial institution they use.
    Similar thing happened to me in the 70s where a leasing company repo'd the truck/trailer w all my gear from company I drove for.

    I thought we were done with these post.
    We used to get 3 or 4 a week.
    Now it's only a couple a month.
    Some drivers are listening, some are still hard headed.

    Thats what the police told me to do as well. The problem is my copy of the contract was in the truck so I don't have it. The police told them to give me a copy, they refused, then was told they had to. What they gave me is not the full copy of the contract
     
    alds Thanks this.

    Just move on.
    Chalk it up to a lesson learned.
    Get a real job this time.

    The lawyer will cost you more than
    The stuff they took.

    Thats why companies feel empowered to treat drivers like that, cause they think no one will do anything.....

    You didn't work for a company.
    You went lease ,1099, rip off the drivers scam.
    You actually believed you were gonna make 3 grand a week.
    We've seen this a 1000 times on here.
    We don't even care anymore. You should have known better.

    They've probably done hundreds of drivers like this.
    The contract is 100 percent in their favor and they know
    You can't do squat about it.
    They know drivers don't have the time
    Or money to fight them over it.

    Like I said, move on and get a real tax paying job
    This time
