Glad you got your rig back James. They are notorious for taking the straps etc. Glad that you are getting reimbursed.

Quoting: Originally posted by irishpatti So, how are things over there in Eagle Pass? It's hard to get freight out of there. We used to have truckers sending up flares saying get us out of here.

there is freight coming out...but i wont take the cheap stuff.let it sit for the cheap companys..lol rather deadhead oout of here. but..i have been looking so far several loads pay good enough to take. but it depends if i get my trailer back soon enough.i f not...deadhead out of here. wont wait.

Quoting: Originally posted by irishpatti Hi James. We didn't let our trucks go over the border. Hope they bring it back! OH MY!
why not???
Maybe they were afraid that they would come back with human cargo! LOL Whenever we hauled Lear and they wanted to take them over the border we called Lear and said "no" our trucks do not go into MEX! They would load freight on another truck and they would take it in.

lear is wh i am hauling for now...i dont know why the drivers always cried. i am geting waiting time. maybe they didnt get it. if so..then they shouldnt have taken the load in the first place. i do several loads to mexico a year and always expect to wait for several days to a week.the mexicans never tell you the truth about when they will unload you or if they have the equipment to do it. i get paid for waiting. so its cool. trailers go acros..they always steel lights...tires..etc. but guess what...always get it replaced..lol...they steel used tires..i get new...they steel old lights..i get new...lol...;p
