    If you don't tell someone about the pig truck to have the driver talked to then stop complaining about having to drive it. Be part of the solution, not the problem. How many drivers does it take to clean a truck? None they would rather stand around and complain about it.

    What do you mean by this??? They are both great guys in the dealings I have had with them, just wondering if you had a bad experience or something?

    There is probably only a handful of drivers that keep their trucks spic and span. The affore mentioned drivers only get whats in the yard. They just clean it out if need be. I had to clean every truck I drove practically, but I didn't mind. It's better that riding in filth and letting it grate on you all day.

    I have an assigned truck and i dont have anytime to clean it. Between tracking down frt and loading my truck and leaving waaayyyy late every morning and running like a nut to get the frt off and running like a nut to make the pick ups when will i have the time to sweep it out and armoural it? Trash comes out at night and thats it. We have a half a million dollar truck wash only a chosen few are trained to use. And it sits there.

    There are only about 5, including the jockeys who are trained to go through the washbay, but anyway I can sympathize with being too busy to keep after your truck the way you want to. Although it really doesn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to wipe down the dash and give it a sweep out. Anytime you have a little delay sweep or wipe, that's what I use to do. I give all you guys credit, I don't know if I could hang with the way things are today. Better busy than not though I suppose.

    Honestly i cant listen to guys that came from that delanco company complain trucks. All good guys and this isnt your faults you just cut a good deal. They gave some of you guys assigned equipment and runs right out the gate and just forgot about the adp drivers that had way more time in. Once again. Not your faults. Good deal

    Can tell from the photo that's an old CH model. It's not a linehaul tractor, it's a city or swap tractor used for a linehaul spare. I've been slip seating quite a bit for the past year and I have driven just about all the scrap iron out there. I agree with you completely. I find dirt, trash, a lot of tear offs from delivery paperwork, pro label books, tons of old placards, and remnants of lunch for the past few days. It all goes in the trash. I had to learn that if I want to keep it, take it out of the truck. I have an assigned tractor but it never gets back from being used for swaps or city in time for my run so I get the trashy scrap iron. Then when I do finally get my unit for a trip I have to clean up the mess they have made in mine. I don't run to the boss and tattle but I think I am going to start bagging up the mess and put the last driver's code on it and give it to someone telling them that he left some of his personal stuff in the truck and would they please return it to him.....
