I gave england every chance possible. They tell you in school that the .14 variable mileage is to pay for your dm and stuff but...if you read the paperwork england pays that to horizon. also i have yet to find anything, that is available to me, about the restriction on how fast my truck can run. I have the same problem as every one else 60 mph and they give me team loads. if you read the contract with horizon it states that i have control of this vehicle. england, in their driver policies, states that COMPANY trucks are governed at 65 mph. when you ask horizon to bump up the speed they say no. the contract states they will not interfere with the quiet operation of this vehicle.
also when you turn in a truck they keep all your money for 45 days to pay for anything that is wrong with the truck. when i got my truck it had less than a 1/4" on the brakes and went into the shop one hr after signing the lease. (they only let you drive the truck around the lot no faster than 5mph.) the truck went into 3 more international shops for a combined total of 3 weeks straight of work. there was so much wrong with this truck! i bet that if i asked the previous driver they would tell me they kept all his money and they didnt fix anything. so my truck number is 93928 a 2009 international prostar. so hopefully who ever gets it after me can see this and we can talk about what they charged me and what that they DIDNT fix. i finally ran 5764 miles with a phase 2 student. after all said and done i paid student 692 and my check was 635. and he wrecked my truck! i signed the lease on apr 8 2010 and so far i have had 1 check. the rest was all negative. now i told my dm that i want a straight load to SLC. i am on hometime right now. lets see how long it takes to get me back. what can be done to stop these people.
something to ponder. those of you on the highways.now as a phased 2 trainer the students had a min of 30 days on my truck. now they are sending me qualcomm messages that they only have to be on my truck for 10 days now!!! how many of you feel safe about a driver that spends 30 days in phase 1(where they are used to drive and that is all. no training. the phase ones are using them to make money. ask any phase 1 student how much they know!) then goes to phase 2 and spends 10 days in the truck and the phase 2 trainers are having to back track and cover what the ph1 trainers are not doing. SO now they move on and get a 80k lb 72' long truck AND can become a phase 2 trainer with only 40 days of training total! you can never drive a truck in your whole entire life, go two weeks to school, spend 40 days with 2 trainers( one who prob just graduated like they are fixing to) and then get your own truck and then train. this company needs to be shut down!
anyone you know wants to go to england do everything short of breaking their legs. they consider that! YOU WILL FAIL IF YOU GO TO THAT COMPANY! THE LEASE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR THE DRIVER TO FAIL!!!
