    Drop and hook in my opinion is overrated…its nice to have but nowadays with so many steering wheel holders who don’t bother reporting maintenance issues to companies makes it a lot of the worthless…what i consider valuable is how well organized ops is and keeps you rolling with very minimal delays..

    No. The joke is the weekly guarantee they offer their teams.

    I agree with this. I worked for a company and at least every fourth trailer had some sort of issue that I had to get fixed. Made me wish not to get drop&hook loads.

    The companies that do drop&hook need to have terminals with shops all over the country and good shop crews to look things over diligently every time a driver enters the terminal gates.
     
    Still undecided Thanks this.

    The guy's talking about living in Florida or Tennessee. Doubt he wants to work for a company whose sole terminal is located in the upper midwest. Seems their primary product for them is milk. Not likely to be drop and hook.

    having shops won’t fix the problem with lazy drivers who won’t simply pick up the phone and call maintenance or breakdown department with their companies and report the issues… It’s always oh I’m dropping it. I don’t care leave it for the next person… I’m sick of lazy people.
