“Davis Transport, Inc. is a great place to work. They make it easy to run your business your way.
Safety is priority # 1 with Davis Transport, Inc. Here you can run legal and still make a nice living for you and your family. With a non-forced dispatch and an open door policy with anyone in the company, you can concentrate on what you need to do to run your business.
The lease purchase at Davis Transport, Inc. is very fair. The rates are good and with good knowledge of the industry and the desire to work, you can and will own your own tractor and trailer. We have already paid off our trailer and will have our tractor paid off in 16 months.
I have been in the trucking industry for 25 years, the last two with Davis Transport, Inc. We couldn’t be happier. This is the company we plan on retiring from.”
“To say that Davis Transport, Inc. is unique and a great company to work with would be an understatement. They have a knowledgeable and dedicated staff that takes your success personally. Their work ethic and core values are a rarity in the transportation industry.
I have been driving for over 15 years. I have been in the Lease Purchase program with Davis Transport, Inc. for the last 2 years. These last 2 years have been the best of my career so far. I walked into Davis Transport, Inc. with a promise to join the lease purchase program. I received a smile and after signing the contract I walked out with the American dream. I am looking forward to many more successful years at Davis Transport, Inc.
Thank you everyone at Davis Transport, Inc. for making that possible.”
“I have been an Owner Operator with Davis Transport, Inc. since 1971. Their honesty and above board policies have always been the greatest asset for an owner operator. I have never missed a paycheck for any load that I have hauled. They treat everyone like you are Family. All they ask is that you do your part.”
“I found a place for me! After working at places where I found layoffs were just the normal business procedures, I turned towards the ads and billboards found around the Spokane, WA area.
At only 22 years old, I wanted to start building my future, not just settling for odd jobs to get me by. I brought up the idea of truck driving to my Mother and she liked the idea. We visited the Post Falls, Idaho Sage Truck Driving School. While we were there, we visited the school’s manager, found out about financing, companies they worked with and how the program worked. That is when we decided, “I am going to become a Trucker”.
During my four weeks at Sage, a handful of companies had sent recruiters in to talk to the students. I had in mind that I wanted a company that pulled flatbeds, allowed me to take my tractor home and MOST of all, treat me as a person, not a number! While the other future truck drivers were fillings out applications, I only filled out one. A recruiter from Davis Transport drove the 180 miles to Post Falls, ID to meet with us. After the recruiter told us about the company, I knew I made the right choice. I personally handed the recruiter my application and said to the recruiter: “See you in a month”.
After the pre-application process, I was approved for orientation and started my decade long relationship with Davis Transport, Inc. on the 2nd of January 2002.
Since my start at Davis Transport, Inc., I’ve been treated like a friend by everyone of the office personnel. The “open door policy” of Davis Transport, Inc. really makes it family orientated. I have never had a thought of leaving this company.
I was a company driver for 5 years before deciding to make the big jump into being an owner operator. I have now paid for my tractor and trailer and racked up almost 2,000,000 accident free miles. I was Driver of the Year in 2004 and Independent Contractor of the year in 2011.
I wake up many mornings saying to myself “I love my job.” My wife and I know that it has a lot to do with the people behind me. I know at 34 years old I have a lot of time before retirement, but if you need to find me, there is a pretty good chance I’ll be right here at Davis Transport, Inc.”
“I am very pleased with Davis Transport, Inc. I am profitable and part of that is due the support of the Davis Transport, Inc. family. It does not matter what the issue is, they will lend their support and make you feel at home.”
