Tanker endorsement with no hazmat

by Leo
(Midwest)

I want to get my tanker endorsement but Is there a high demand for tankers with hazmats?


Also how much more would I make with the hazmat plus tanker endorsement. I'm looking for a better pay benefits and home daily position.

anonymous.... NEW

Is basically ubiquitous in that it always shows up automatically where your name could/should be.

I think it should be switched around to where your name shows and you have the option to change it to "anonymous"


I just dont like always having to go to the windows and typing in my email every time I want to see replies and having to type in the SPAM protection..



It just gets a bit tedious


I could care less who knows my name or my email addy


It's Tommy

If the "site" could remember that, I wouldn't have to go through so much to add a comment... whether it be good advice or just my ignorance showing ~


Yeah?


Word for today "manila" vvvvv

Thanks
by: Hervy

Don't know why so many people here remain anonymous and to give good advice, lol.

But anyway, thank you guys for chiming in especially being experienced in that area.

I never did haul tankers. So your first hand response is very much appreciated.

The only exeptions...
by: Anonymous

..that I know of right now are: water, wine and sugar and milk....

Even then, wine can require a HM endorsement if you are hauling the vaporized alcohol....


Get your Hazmat

TSA background check has to be done and paid for also. Here in Cali, it's done at the Military bases.


Like these guys said "generally speaking" but I'll tell you what, if you were an O.O (Owner-Operator) and hauling brokered freight, YOU WILL DEFINITELY MAKE MORE MONEY HAULING HAZ....

If you are just a company driver with an endorsement, don't think your company is gonna pass that extra, extra cha-ching down to you....

Going to be a requirement to have hazmat driving tanker. Most tankers are hauling hazmat materials.

Hazmat...
by: Anonymous

..with a tanker will generally require the hauling of fuel...

They kind of like you to have a bit of experience, but some companies are so hard-up these days, they will train you themselves.

Hauling fuel isn't easy or safe, and here in Cali... it pays SHIT....


get a Hazmat and look for a company that hauls dedicated runs with chemicals ~


"that" pays pretty well. It's what I do, and I make substantially more than the "average Joe"...

at the same time, my job is fairly dangerous.


You gotta decide.


Dry Van freight is garbage and pays garbage, but its safe and easy. (for the most part)
