New driver here. I'll be going to Maverick orientation in a few weeks and have a question to pose to other Maverick drivers.
Where will I park my truck during home time? I am in S.E. Michigan, and there are no Maverick terminals nearby. I live in suburbia, so parking at home is not an option. Thanks in advance for your response.

Ask your manager where you can park the trucktakamine98 and Another Canadian driver Thank this.
Be careful not park where it can be towed.
Company most likely will make you pay for tow.

look at storage facilities
.or rv storage. then ask company if they will reimburse the monthly feetakamine98, Another Canadian driver and Eddiec Thank this.
You need to find SECURE parking, whether that’s at a truck-specific lot or a storage facility. If you leave a Maverick truck parked somewhere unsecure, I assure you, it’ll be stripped or stolen by the time you return. Everyone knows Maverick has nice stuff and everyone knows it’s loaded with equipment. DO NOT risk it.
You could go to the city clerk’s office and ask them. They’ll know of all the storage businesses in your area.

one of main concerns when looking for a company is if they have a drop lot or terminal within a reasonable commute.takamine98, JoeyJunk and lual Thank this.

I think Maverick's fleet is indeed big enough to be considered one of the so-called "mega-carriers".....
As such--it stands to reason that Maverick has dropyards in locations that won't be made available on the web (it was/is the same way with Schneider, too).
Call your nearest terminal--and ask what dropyards (if any) are in your area.
When I first stared with Schneider--I parked the rig for hometime at a dropyard about an hour away from home.
Note also....that said dropyard was hardly in anything close to what one would consider to be some of the better parts of town.
But it was STILL one of the company's dropyards--so after I locked it up and left--I didn't worry about it.
