Team Drive-Away moves one, two, three, and up to four units at one time. TDA does this by using drivers to move these trucks one at a time, by decking, or by way of a boom trailer.
The driver picks up the truck(s) at the shipper (commonly the seller) and delivers to the destination (commonly the buyer).
Fuel, transportation to and from delivery / pick-up site, lodging, meals, entertainment, and injury insurance are the driver’s responsibility.
Fuel – TDA charges a fuel surcharge based on the following (paid in CPM): Current Fuel Price (National Average) – 1.45 / fuel economy = Surcharge
Fuel Economy is based on the following: Singles 8 MPG / Decking 5 MPG / Boom 6.5 MPG – based on our drive-away experience (DEF 100% Reimbursed)
Example: 3.91 – 1.45 = 2.46 Decking =.49 / Boom = .38 / Singles = .31
Transportation – Drivers can utilize a tow vehicle, flights, bus, rental cars, or any means of public transport. The most efficient and cost effective means of travel is the driver’s own vehicle. Drivers can move freely without meeting other schedules (like a bus schedule).
Lodging – Drivers can utilize the sleeper in a truck being transported. We recommend a plastic sleeve for the mattress if you choose to use the mattress in the truck. Customers are responsible for overnight accommodations when a breakdown occurs. If the driver is transporting a day cab, the driver is responsible for lodging. There may be extra pay to help offset this cost.
Taxes, Injury Insurance, & Medical Insurance are the responsibility of the contractor
Next Day Pay – By Way of Com Data – While we pay by way of ComData we recommend drivers set up direct deposit as soon as possible – it will save money on ComData charges
$12 per day on load with a max charge of $ 204.00 for the month (Deck Drivers make one payment for the month)
Drivers must successfully complete 90 days of successful singles or boom work to enter the deck training program.
We encourage drivers to work for multiple companies. The more companies a driver has at their disposal, the more loads a driver has to choose from.
We allow electronic logs and accept all documents in electronic form (Cam Scanner from smart phone) but we also accept faxes and mail (they must be clear & legible).
