    Yeah I'm probably going to have to end up leasing a truck on with somebody for a while at least until I can find something decent and somewhat consistent to and from PA on my own.

    Out of PA there's lots of flatbed stuff to lots of places. Are you in PA or somewhere else? If you're somewhere else why PA?

    I'm in South east PA about an hour north of Philly. And there's a lot of flatbed work but it's usually cheap. Unless of course you want to go into NYC but even then most loads are only paying 1000.00 including tolls, and that's usually a whole day ordeal.

    Yeah the good freight in PA is out of Pittsburgh. And the rates from Pittsburgh to Philly are pretty great, so Philly must suck pretty hard. Try to see if you can get a one day run out to Pittsburgh and then get a run back. You might discover it's a good lane. Not sure, but definitely worth looking at if you want to be home every other night.
     
    Dirtymartini15x Thanks this.

    Thanks I'll look into what's going out that way and coming back.

    Always look at the whole route as one cycle. Do not get hung up on 'I won't haul that 1$ a mile freight!' when that 1$ a mile freight takes you somewhere you'll get 3$ a mile coming back. I suspect this is how Philly-Pittsburgh is going to be.
     
    Dirtymartini15x Thanks this.

    That's how everything (flatbed wise) is in eastern PA it seems.

    WATCH YOUR BACK WITH TQL !! THEYLL PROMISE YOU ONE THING AND THEN DO SOMETHING ELSE..THEY HAVE PLENTY OF FREIGHT BUT PAY THE CHEAPEST IN THE INDUSTRY..IF YOU ARE OFFERED A RATE OF $600 YOU CAN BET THAT LOAD IS PAYING OVER$1200..I SIGNED A RATE CON FOR $700 AFTER SITTING THERE FOR HOURS I WAS TOLD THE QUALITY OF LOAD WAS REJECTED BUT LATE THAT EVENING THE SHIPPER TOLD ME THEY HAD WORKED THINGS OUT AND I COULD LOAD..I TOOK THE LOAD GOING BY WHAT THE SHIPPER TOLD ME.. TQL AUTOMATICALLY DEDUCTED $100 FROM AGREEMENT BECAUSE THE SHIPPER LOADED ME THAT NIGHT INSTEAD OF THE NEXT MORNING WITHOUT A WORD BEING DISCUSSED WITH ME..I DROVE OVER A HUNDRED MILES TO GET TO THE SHIPPER AND THEN SIT UNTIL AFTER DARK AND NOT THERE WAS NOT ONE OFFER FOR DETENTION OR MY MILEAGE..IT WAS NOT MY FAULT THE SHIPPER DECIDED TO LOAD ME THAT NIGHT,THAT PAID FOR MY DETENTION AND DEADHEAD MILES !!
