    On the Texas oilfield. I have 2 years experience and all my endorsements. What companies do you recommend? I would like to stay a company driver for now.
    Should I haul sand, crude or water?

    Give a location where you live, then I could tell you a few.

    Sand long waits, water lots of work, crude is better.

    Look up tanker out fits near you!
    Search "tanker companies hiring near me"

    None out here in AZ that do crude that I know of. When I've talked to crude drivers in the patch they all ay their company requires more years than I have.

    Not trying to be rude, but in a nutshell, hauling crude in West Tx is at a standstill for now! Possibly back to par, up n running Mid April is what a few are saying. Ive been out of work for a month, others working short, 'bad' runs just to keep running. Again, not trying to paint a neg. pic, but just the truth about Midland, Pecos, West Texas. (PS; Im an O/O 10 yrs exper.)

    I dont do Crude, but, My company moves Frac equipment, some Hazmat required, we dont move alot. My guys mostly dont get over a thousand miles a week. If they are out all day they might drive 6hrs. Easy work. Ya, we dont pay what crude haulers do, but, you run alot less miles and work less hours and your not chasing loads. I am paying a Hazmat driver 1500/GUARANTEED. If you live here or have your own RV, You can make 1700. 1500 is with housing ( RV) 2018 MODELS, Cable, your own Internet, covered awning( You will need to stay cool during the summer.)
