Don't Haul extra weight in freight for free?
Hauling extra weight
I want to know if you guys having the same issue.. I was in Brooking Oregon Getting lumber For my broker 48,000 and they ended up putting 50,680 pound of product I told them no. that is 2680lb more then what I agree too.. even though I was legal 11940 on steers 35020 on my drive and 35600 trailer I have a spreed axl..my truck is light and trailer around 27500..anyway the point is why Carrie more weight for free and not get paid more they keep saying everyone take it..
well I decline the load ..told them to take all off. The broker told me he would give me 50 bucks more. I laugh ..not even worth my time and plus there no Certified scales around 75 miles away ..
I think has a truck drivers need to stand up to the brokers and to the shippers had and say no..we want more money if we carry more then 48000...
