    Well, I never did, but spent my entire trucking career up north, and Taylor was always a respected name. Van freight, I think, been around since 1957, and speaks volumes. Wisconsin has a lot of those long time carriers. I may be a bit partial, we've had our share of shysters up north, but anyone in business that long, must be doing something right. Cities is an awful place to drive, but for some reason, the people outside of their cars are really cool. I'd go for it.

    Yes I think I might. There is not a lot of info on them but I may give them a try. Hear they had some issues with old equipment several years back but now hear it's improved. Just hope it's not constantly running 80 thru Chicago . I like the longer runs out west .They say they have a pad rap division that runs all 48 and I think their dry van does some ..also run the SE . Their hometime options appear to be a bit better than many others...but is there are trade off? Thanks for the insight

    If out west is what you prefer, most of those companies are somewhat regional, lot of Ohio, and such. Wisconsin has quite a few outfits that deal with longer hauls, a guy I know is a dispatcher for Badger State Western, out of Abbotsford, is a great company, all new KWs, and a bunch of cheese haulers out of Green Bay to the west coast. Good luck, keep us posted, eh?

    Yes I remember seeing their trucks occasionally out west. Think at this point I might go with Taylor, will see how it goes.
