    This is why you never lease a truck from a company that also handles your dispatching...

    Well a lot played into it but Iam done at wfx not making enough miles for me. This is a ok company that I don’t think needs bad mouthed. But Lauren my dispatcher was awesome, load planning at times felt more like a click and drop assignment but kept rolling somewhat most of the time. I fell this was a glorious company driver position that had the dream dangled I. Front of me to own a truck and make money tell I’d do. My truck was picked up at my house this last week with no notice of someone coming.
    Pros- nice equipment, friendly office staff, on Time hometime
    Cons- keeping good flatbed equipment from swaps and drop and hooks, kept running to a point to us my hours in a week, being a LP that’s really just acompany guy

    That didn't last long although you went into the flatbed side. They aren't known for their flatbed freight. You may had better luck running their stronger van or reefer freight

    @Cookie931 since you left this page has totally died. Bummer, this is the only reason I would come back to the Truckers Report.
