    I think they go everywhere, but I know for sure they go up to Ohio a lot and over to Denver.

    Dalton runs all carpet. From what I remember them saying was they run a lot of Indiana and Michigan. Now don't hold me to that I'm just going off what was said. I've never hauled any of it. But I do know that it's all carpet and I think pays 10 a stop. And hear it's a lot of night driving cause the loads are not usually ready till midnight or so. Maybe someone from dalton will chime in

    I've never had to haul carpet, only furniture from time to time. With a different carrier

    By the way does anyone know anything about being able to take equipment home during home time?

    I was told if you're less than 100 miles from a terminal, you must park at the terminal.

    most times they park at the terminal. My truck goes to Penske because it's a truck Watkins leases from Penske. But I think most of the guys that Live a ways away they work with. That's something you can talk to the terminal manager about when you get to the terminal. If you can make it work out on a load. It's don't ask don't tell. My house is in the direction I usually run so I stop by the house on the way in to the terminal and out usually lol.
     
    OnTheFly126 Thanks this.

    Most loads originate at our terminals so you are gonna be there anyway. Or at least that's the way it is with me.
