i been looking into flatbed work, i have a company that will train me for a few weeks,just checking out a few details first, thanks


Just remember flat bed can be very hard work and you need to be aware strapping laws and how they vary state to state. Also what tools you will be expected to supply. Such as strap and chains and tarps.

Most times they do lie to you about being home weekends. But don't give up right away. Just tell yourself this. "If BUllwinkle can do it, so can I" hehe Right BW?
