    Does anyone have any experience past/present with Sunstate Carriers out of Tavares, Florida? I have been to their website and read over everything their hiring/running area, requirements, pay etc but I've never talked to one of their drivers. Any info is appreciated thanks for read and posting guys/gals

    They had APU's years ago, way ahead of the game.

    They had qualcomm, drivers voted against it, they went back to telephones.

    You will run, not sit, back and forth to the midwest...Paw Paw etc.

    Used to get by the house every week, then home every other week.

    Things may have changed some, but as long as the owner still runs it, it must be OK.

    I have wondered about this company as well. I see them passing through my area frequently. Their website does not give much useful info.

    I no longer there, so...things may have changed.

    But I'm sure the old man still runs it, I pray anyway.

    It used to be AG carriers, if you remember them.

    Used to haul O.J. from florida to michigan, or pennslyvania, and applesauce back.

    I'd check them out, but don't expect to be babysat !!!!

    They expect you to do your job, and leave you alone.

    Good Luck.........

    great company great people money is on time home time is always on time and the best part is you never sit still if those wheels arent turning you cant be earning the longest we have sat to unload or load is 2 hours, sometimes we are in and out before you even get relaxed. Good family company

    Thank you, most of the good companies I look at in Florida have a high age requirement. I can't blame them though, that means they usually won't hire bad, inexperienced drivers I suppose
