    I recently found out that the cost of fuel and lumper fee's come out of the drivers pocket, not the company's. $125 on average for a lumper service.

    They do NYC, which is forced. Other company's, except C.R. England, have it as an option. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    As stated, they can’t make you pay for lumpers.

    Speaking of lumpers, the first time I’d ever heard of lumpers, I got all excited. I waited with anxious anticipation for them to show up. Well, you can imagine my disappointment when I laid eyes on them for the first time.

    Not only were they not those little midgets from Willy Wanka, they weren’t even Kentuckians. Just a couple of scroungy looking vermin that moved like molasses in the winter.

    Are you sure that the company drivers just merely pays with a comdata check at point of service, Transflo's the copy of receipt with BOLs and it's "reimbursed" back on to the drivers pay same pay period? Same as with fuel? To prevent Theft.

    That’s kind of what I figure is going on.

    When I was a young fellow the phrase " like it or lump it" was popular. I thought lumpers were the people who didn't "like it" Later I found out they were more like mercenary steavadores.

    It was on 1 of the messages after sending in a request for a lumper.

    Your info may be skewed. If it came out of your pocket, that means you didn't send the receipt in. They aren't the only ones that do that
