As midnight, January 1st brought cheers of “Happy New Year” from around the world, it also brought new life to a local icon in the world of RV Transport.

Quality Drive Away, Inc. announced a restructuring of the two companies, including Baker Transport out of Fitzgerald, GA, that would change leadership and segregate duties. As of January 1st, 2011 Quality Drive Away will encompass the motorized freight while a new entity, Foremost Transport, Inc will encompass all other freight (see article in RV Business).

In most circumstances, there are three reasons for such a restructuring:

1. Legal (regulatory, shielding liability… etc)
2. Accounting (taxes, financing…etc)
3. Succession Planning

All I know is that this company gets you excited about working for them, then changes everything. they cut pay rates on a whim. They dispatch you on CDL product knowing you are not CDL qualified. They are the shipping nazi's. Stay away from them...!

I have worked as a driver for Quality Drive Away for 7 years. During that time I was able to pay off my student loans, credit cards and buy a home. It is true that this type of work isn't for everyone. You have to be organized and know how to manage your money. You also have to have common sense! Are you going to get rich? NO, and the recruiters tell you that. Are there imperfections in their dispatch system? Yes, I haven't seen a company yet that is perfect but I have always been paid what they told me they were going to pay me. Those that fail in this industry either don't have a clue on how to be self-employed or they are careless. You have to watch your money going out and not get hotels every night. I personally never took the Greyhound but I know many drivers that do and still make money. Some of them run over 100,000 paid miles/year. I ran between 75,000-80,000 paid miles per year and had a tow vehicle that another driver split expenses with me on. I met the four drivers last summer that had reached their Million Mile Reward for driving over 1 Million miles safely in 10-11 years. Why would they still be with the company if you couldn't make money? I netted about .48/mile after fuel expenses and then take another .10-.12/mile off for return home which still puts me better than being a company driver for one of the big trucking companies. Plus, I make the decision of when, where and how I take my trip. I've been to 49 states and 6 Canadian provinces. I never would have been 4 wheeling on the beaches of Oregon without this job, nor would I have seen the Grand Canyon or the Red Wood Forests. Sounds like sour grapes on the first two guys.
