    I can only speak from my own experiences, but I've always had better health insurance with smaller companies. That being said, I've only worked for three different companies in 20 years. Currently, I work for a 20 truck outfit, and the insurance is $400/ month for family, $2500 deductible, and no co-pays. Eye and dental is another $20 a month

    340 truck tanker company. 5 terminals from coast to coast. I never leave Texas unless I want to. Went to Los Angeles for the first time in 8 years last week. Was very nice getting in and out of LA within three hours which was possible due to the lockdown.

    I drove to Fargo each week from Dallas for five years. It was a love hate thing....loved the four day work weeks but hated the miserable winter weather up there. Pretty slow now but am fortunate to work for a company that knows how to survive in times like we’re currently in. Life’s pretty good!
