Our goal is to provide the safest, most comfortable, and most efficient trucks on the road for our professional drivers. Newer trucks mean fewer repairs but when issues do arise, we have a large team of professional and experienced technicians throughout our terminals to help get our drivers back on the road quickly and safely. We also have a team of tenured roadside assistance employees on staff 24/7 and we have a network of over 18,000 outside repair facilities – all to make our drivers jobs free of unnecessary frustration.
All our trucks are professionally cleaned, detailed, and fully stocked with all the required equipment before being issued to a new driver. We assign trucks to individual drivers which means the truck stays with you even on home time – no slip seating! However, we offer the option to trade trucks if a repair will take longer than a few days.
