We just signed on with them, haven't done any work for them yet. Pay is a little low... They do not seen up to date with Texas laws regarding personal property. Texas is very touchy when it comes to personal property. We just went to a meeting with them in Dallas the other day, They do alot of work for BOA so it seems. It will be something we just have to watch and see how they work out. Everyone will have their own opinion on these different companies, some good and some bad. Ultimately you will have to make your own decision.

Only spend your discretionary money and when that is gone then tell us how it went.

I'm a moderator on a trucking forum.

The trucking industry is very similar to how the P&P industry works in that there is mass confusion and a whole lot of middle men with their fingers in the pie before it gets to the guy doing the actual work.

On the trucking forum we have FNGs that come asking questions about this or that bottom feeder company. They get a whole lot of negative feed back from those that have actually been there and done that and gotten the t shirt.
And yet they will believe the company's line of BS and sign up with them. Their heads are either in the clouds or that other really dark and smelly place and they believe that they are going to be the one guy that does not get jacked by this company that has a long and illustrious record of jacking FNGs.


At that point I must ask several questions.

1. Just exactly why do you FNGs bother asking for a company's reputation if you do not plan on listening to what you hear?
It sure seems that even before asking the question your mind is made up to do what ever it is that you plan on doing.

2. What is the purpose of having these forums if you FNGs won't listen to any thing you read and instead blindly listen to the company's sales pitch?

3. If your friends or family or neighbors told you that a certain convenience store with the best price on gas was selling a lot of water and crud with their gas and to not go.... would you still go fill up and think you got a bargain?????????????



There are other questions that could be asked but I'll wait until I get good answers to these 3. Some things really defy the imagination.

You bring about an interesting point. However, some of us have had success with the same nationals that others have failed with. Perhaps this FNG's think they can do better with the above client since they might have found a lot of info on these forums/friends. For example the one nationals I can't stand you love. my#3 national I love to work for, you simply hate.

I know that if you have a great relationship with your state reps, more often than not you will be ok. I also know that they tend to be nicer when they need you really bad. The FNG just proceed with caution. My favorite national for 8 years went to last on my list after 2 months of monkey business.

Troy lets get one thing straight.

I don't "love" any national. I tolerate them.


lol

The one you are referring to I do appreciate the work they've given me because without them my primary business would be in much worse shape than it is.
2012 looks to be a very good year thanks to the work they gave me in 2011 to buy the equipment I needed.
