A career in the transportation industry is appealing to those who enjoy spending time behind the wheel. Unfortunately, the cost of purchasing a semi-trailer can deter some people from starting this new career path.

Many carriers offer the opportunity for independent drivers to lease semi-trailers.

A vehicle that has broken down and left you stranded can be a severe problem. When faced with this obstacle, you will likely need to have your vehicle towed so that you can get it repaired.
