    Can anyone she any light on how the tap program works? I didn't get much help from the recruiter. Also is their $1.80 all miles average about right for flat?

    usually a company will pay extra when a driver tarps a load $25 to $50,,not much. When a customer required tarping I charge $300 up..

    Thats probably close. Freight rates are lower since its the slow season for flatbed. Hopefully it starts to pick up in few wks. This week i will run 2852 miles and gross $4632.74 to the truck. Thats $1.63 cpm after ats cut.
    Dont know much on the tap program til aug when i start it. I think after ur 1st lease u can order a brand new coranado or cascadia how ever u want it. Down payment is more if u add xtras. I want a pete 389 but heard there not getting those anymore so will settle for a 579.

    I was curious if it's only a new truck or if i could pick a older truck? Is it brand specific? Can you leave the company if you needed to with it? That's the questions i asked and couldn't get answered. The only answers i got were vague or flat out i don't know.

    U can get new or used or if u like the truck ur in u can keep it. Only 1 u can order is freightliner since ats owns the dealer in st cloud. I think the trucks are 2010 and newer. I want a newer truck with def for cali since sooner or later there going to ban the older egn. Once u make the last pymt the truck is urs no baloon pymt. I dont know if u can take it to another company b4 its paid off.

    If u talk to some of our drivers find the trucks that start with a 7. They are in the tap program or full o/o. 8 is the lease trucks and 1 are company drivers.

    You can only take the trk. away from them when you pay it off.
    Do like some and use the TAP deal then go to a bank with all your info and pay it off..
    Then you just owe the bank and not a slave to them....
    That or just fiance it outside from them.
    I think you can order Pete's seeing how they work hand in hand with Allstate Peterbilt
     
    Kujo Thanks this.

    Oh, the poster who stated about tarping fees. Well good ol ATS will wrap that in the propaganda they sell you to take the bite into the big time "share cropper" program..
