      Looking for someone to do a lease purchase on straight trucks ! With a good person now and can purchase with them on a 36 months term but the company there leased onto Try Hours only runs you 2 or 3 loads a week then you sit on the weekend any suggestions

        Lease purchases are usually not to a drivers advantage. Don't know much about Try Hours. Kind of two separate issues.

      Dave, do I understand correctly that you run at least one truck on your own authority? We are thinking about that as an option as FDCC seems to be slowly pushing us towards the exit after 7-some years. I'd love to have some info from someone doing their own authority on how that is working out, how you handle finding loads and getting paid, etc. Do you know any others on EO that run with their own authority? Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

      Hi dave, really new to this. Big question. I have a dream to be on road. I have Class B and applied to Panther. My husband has a Class A. He applied also, looking to do the team straight truck gig. Problem: we both worked seasonal construction, for alphalt co, dump trucks, during seasonal layoff husband smoked a joint/two joints. Called back to work, positive for marijuana. Completed DOT back to work program. This was four years ago, I want to team drive and see the country, can't seem to get on with anyone because of this. What can we do. Smoking is not our lifestyle, just a dumb thing on seasonal layoff. What can we do?? Help!! from a sincere girl.

      Have not talked to you in a while. I am considering a Cat C9 in one on Knoxville's 2006 Sterling L8500 trucks. Odom has 433K miles. Do you think this would still be OK. Seems well-maintained and I hate the Ultra-Shift on my 07 Century. Any thoughts? With a trade-in and pay-off of mine, this would be fairly easy to finance, and give me at least the two more years I think I need B4 exiting once and for all...thx

      Dave, I am driving a company own sprinter sleeper van and owner pays all expences. He wants to pay me .23 for 0 to 2500 miles, .24 for 2500 to 3500 miles, .25 for 3500 to 4000 miles and .26 for 4000 to 5000 miles. I am out for 4 to 5 weeks. Is this a fair price? Thanks Danny

      Dave, For some reason I am unable to post to the Carrier Forums, mainly the Panther Forum. I see that you are a Moderator for the forums, is there anything we can do to open up my access? Thank You,
      Jim

      *Edit* Actually I just made a post and noticed that it said it was my first post. I may have had another account under the name JimmyB I think I lost my password to that account a long time ago, which is the account I may have posted under and made this one because of that. I'm going to see if I can remember my password, if not and I have to start over it's fine with me.

      Thanks

      Hi Dave,
      I am like a lot of people trying to figure out the expedite community.
      My wife and I are thinking of investing into ourselves and were looking at Panther, problem is I can not get a straight answer from a recruiter on the number of miles that teams are getting.
      Any insight?
      Thank you,
      Craig

      I have had 2 posts deleted now asking about mid west expediting.
      Is there some taboo asking a question about them.
      I am just trying to find out info about them and if they are a good company.
      Any info would be appreciated as I am wanting to get into the expediting business.

      Hi Dave,

      I have been reading over the forum for a while now and have seen that you have a load of information on the industry and Panther. I am going out to Panther next week to their orientation and I would like to talk to you about your expeirience and possible questions to bring up as an owner.

      I know your busy, but any help would be greatly appreciated either through here a PM or telephone.

      Thanks

      John
