CDLLife Readers Haul Interesting Freight


This weekend, we asked our readers to tell us (if they could) about the most interesting freight they’d ever hauled. – We were not disappointed!

• “Picked up a trailer BOL said it was less then 1 lbs. Was going from Phoenix, AZ to a ‘house’ in Bowling Green, KY. Upon arrival a guy came out and said ‘ I cant believe they delivered my settlement check in a truck this size ‘ I was a bit confused however we had to break the metal bolt locking seal and when I opened the trailer there was an envelope for this guy. He sued the trucking company i delivered for and got a hefty settlement and requested it be hand delivered by a representative of the company. Guess I was the chosen one.” – Steven
