Impending Surprise Inspections to Stall Truckers

It’s Time to Make Sure Your Ride is Legal

 

Impending Surprise Inspections to Stall Truckers 1
 

If there was anything positive about the on-sought of the Coronavirus pandemic in the trucking industry, it was that it delayed the most dreaded event of the year – inspection time.  Due to the demand for truckers to put on the gas to deliver essential goods, like food, hospital supplies, and toilet paper, the impending inspection event was put on hold, for many at least.

Typically, like clockwork, the International Road-Check creeps in around early summer.  This year, however, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), announced it would be postponed until further notice.  Or…no notice, as has been the case.

The CVSA is an agency comprised of international officials from the United States, Mexico, and Canada.  Their job is to tend to federal commercial driver safety. 

Generally, the early summer [...]

Make Money Moving Portable Sheds

Put Your Flatbed Truck to Work for You

Make Money Moving Portable Sheds 3
 

Drive down any highway, especially in rural areas, and you’ll see lot after lot full of portable buildings for sale or rent.  Selling portable sheds, garages, offices, and even small homes is a huge, profitable, and ever-growing business.  Once a shed is sold or rented, it has to get to its destination, usually on top of a Flatbed Truck.  Drivers are cleaning up on the trend too.

Get Moving with a Flatbed Truck

Independent shed movers make good money every time they transport a shed.  The going rate is $500 for a typical local transport.  Generally, there is nothing else required of the driver except to deliver it to the destination.  From there, a crew generally awaits that tends to take over from there to put wheels on it and drag it to its [...]

The Journey Continues and for Some, a New One Begins

On the Road to Recovery? 4
Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water, or…on the road (so to speak), yet another round of lay-offs and shutdowns may be on the horizon.  For many truck drivers, like Paul Chadwick, the pain is already being felt.

“I was laid off and my wife was out of work because the bars closed down,” Paul stated.  [...]
