    I'm from Dayton, OH area and interested in tall sprinter van expediting. Any recommendations from current/recent drivers about companies to drive for? TryHours is already on my list.

    Thanks!

    P.S. This was longer but kept getting flagged as spam and wouldn't post.

    EDIT: I am looking to be a company driver, not O/O.

    Panther is a good one. Out of medina. You can apply and drive for a fleet owner. Once your approved they will put you on a list that fleet owners will see to contact you. If interested PM me and I can give you my recruiters info.

    Do you have a van, or are you looking to drive for someone? Are you looking to go "over the road", or work locally?

    I do not have a van. I have no need to be home every night or even every week; over the road is much more appealing to me.

    More info: I imagine something like a double-height, 2-or-3-skid sprinter/transit-type with sleeping set up and heat seems nice. Willing to learn about hazmat and get licensed (in due time). Thanks for info so far.

    EDIT: Not unwilling to do local carries, though.

    That's great. I think it's best to get my feet wet as a company van driver before moving to next steps. I'm still interested to hear from van drivers who enjoy their carriers (carriers who can employ people from around Dayton, OH).
