There is much information out on the internet about what to do with your truck if your company closes and you are on the road. I made a video for that with good information, not what you are finding on FB groups.
Some people are telling drivers to park the truck behind their house and charge storage when the company comes looking for it. This is not the things to do. You don't have an agreement to charge storage so you can't charge storage. You cannot put a lien on the truck, either. This type of information can get you in legal trouble as well. Due to the Celadon Trucking Bankruptcy this information is going around. There are also drivers who had money on their pay card and now cannot access it. Please, I beg you, do not ever get paid on a company pay card. Only get paid in your bank account or on a prepaid card that you own. Get it from a box store and pay the monthly fee. That would be much better than not having access to your money because the card is turned off. I go over several more things in the video. Check it out and I hope it helps everyone including Celadon Trucking drivers.
See you on the road!

Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
