    As a Hub Driver, I don't fully know how they get the equipment back. It really isn't my concern (yet). A deck Driver will have to answer that question. I want to know myself.

    You should also consider "Unimark!" They have a terminal in Laredo as well as other terminals around United States! They also do a lot of lowboy loads if you ever get your truck up and running legal! If you're interested in Unimark you should call their office in Joplin Missouri!

    I wish that I could, but I'm not a trainer. If I were you, I would pay attention to Dirk's post and consider Unimark. They pay for EVERYTHING, unlike TM.

    But yet Unimark pays only .88c per mile and take taxes. And the way to save on fuel is sty away from the typical truck stops and find cheaper fuel; ie...GasBuddy App. As I've stated before, HUB drivers average $300 - $350 per day and $500 - $600 per day to the Deck drivers while under a load. Just like every other drive away company, you have your good and bad weeks and yes, it is more of a risk since you're moving new trucks. But, if you want the big bucks, you have to be willing to take the big risks. :)

    ooida is worthless if you need help.
    My chipped windshield cost me $390. According to Quality Driveaway, a dealer has nine months to file a claim against us.

    the way i do my math, fuel cost me about .25 cents per mile to move the trucks. If they say it pays a buck per mile i subtract 25 cents.

    Count on one full day of travel and a motel stay so you dont have to log travel time as on duty not driving. 45 dollar hotels are rare these days, i mostly find 65 to 75 dollar motels. I got tired of the flees and bedbugs.
     
    crb, Whoisdoug and Loke Thank this.

    Do yourself and everyone else a favor. Since the dealers have been charging us to replace windshields for a chip so small it's barely visible and then just repairing it. Many of us have taken the attitude that since it's getting replaced anyway, lets add a chip about the size of our 3 pound hammers. It's surprising how windshield claims have drastically been reduced since they aren't getting paid to do nothing anymore.
