We received a call from a driver with another carrier bragging on one of our drivers. The caller wanted us to know that we had a driver that had helped him out when he was trying to get loaded. The driver said that he had never tarped a load before and his company sent him to load anyway and he was really struggling. He said our driver, Daniell Head stayed there and helped him and he really appreciated it and just wanted us to know that we have a great driver.
Thank you very much Daniell for going the extra mile to help out a fellow driver and thanks to the caller for letting us know!
Drivers helping drivers is something we always love to see! Our very own driver from Conway, AR, Tee did just that this weekend by making sure drivers got an awesome meal. At a truck stop in Greencastle, PA, he went out of his way to cook over 28 lbs. of hamburger meat, 60+ hotdogs and 6 packs of shrimp as well as all the sides to go along with it for drivers who stopped there. The BTC family is proud of Tee’s commitment and hard work on the road, but mostly Tee is a great reminder that we are family in this industry!
There’s a new reason to be excited about BTC. What are we referring to exactly? It’s our new $4,000 Referral Bonus! Builders Transportation is always looking for new company drivers, and we want to reward our current company drivers for referring new company drivers to BTC.
Do you know a qualified truck driver and wondering what to tell them? Just ask the potential new driver to please contact Builders Transportation’s Recruiting Department at 800-238-6803 ext. 3 and give us your name.
All current BTC company drivers are eligible to earn this referral bonus. $4,000 is a nice bonus just for spreading the word about Builders Transportation. There is not a limit to how many referrals you can make, so feel free to refer, refer, refer!
We received a message today from Neil Ashcraft who has been a part of the BTC family for over 9 years. Neil requested we share his thoughts and we ask you keep him in your prayers.
On Monday April 11th, I start my fight with throat cancer and the challenge of getting back to Memphis and working for the company I love.
I wish to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers during this sudden and surprising news. But to me more importantly , I wish express my sincere gratitude to the Phillips family and the entire BTC organization for preparing me to overcome this challenge in my life ahead from helping me establish the desire, discipline, and financial stability for whatever lies ahead of me during these next 3 months.
I don’t wish to sound over dramatic. And all those who have gotten to know me over these many years, have seen the very best of me. I do for others because I wish to, never looking for anything in return. At 50 now , I’m grateful I found trucking and BTC especially and to all the drivers struggling, bouncing around from companies, or questioning is this for me; please trust me when I tell you that BTC can bring you better balance in your family life in your quality of life and financial stability. Learn to communicate better and take better responsibility in everything you do every day and I guarantee you’ll be successful. Ask questions and perform. I’ll miss so many of you for this period of time and will look forward to seeing you all when I return.
