stupid enough you find enough I was with my dad at work I was surprised how many times we could find the empty parking lot and 2.3 stupid people decide to mark near the ramp especially where there are tight parking lots like asking to take the knife or hammer and scratch them car or cut their tires or break their windows and there are also smart people who even park in the ramp simply in the truck ramp

Hey Alex, unless they recently changed those KWs have a release in the sidebox for the sleeper door. So you can just put your groceries or laundry directly into the sleeper area. When you open the sidebox reach in and up to your right and on the inside wall you'll feel a small lever with a knob. Pull down and the sleeper door will pop open. You may have to give the door gentle encouragement the first time if you have never used it before with a screwdriver or key. Once you open it a few times it opens easily. I put lithium grease in all my locking mechanisms to keep them smooth.

I swear, people block you in on purpose.. that's why I always look to situate myself where I have a backup plan if I do get trapped. Also I try to make it hard for tow trucks to be able to get in front of my truck whenever possible ( you know, in case your 20 minutes run into the store turns into a power-tripping manager calling a tow truck and reporting you've been parked there for 5 days).

@Twin_Turbo Don’t think that’s what I said. But from aspects truck driving is not a healthy profession. Not mentally(high stress, no proper work life balance), emotionally (life balance and being isolated for so long-introvert or not) physically definitely not and also not good for liability (one mistake and you could be in jail for decades)

Watching this content gave me an unspoken respect for truckers while I’m on the road. If they turn I try to give them as much space as I can when I’m on their inside. When they’re on the highway I make sure I give them plenty of room to merge

Tip from a fellow rook, talk with your dispatcher when you do a 34 hour reset and remain a bobtail or call the local Walmart, Publix, Kroger etc. And ask if they have a dock door open that they aren't using. Most places have no issue allowing you to park at a dock door to finish your shopping. Also some Midwest Walmarts have truck parking available and if all else fails, use Uber grocery shopping; if available. Staf safe bud.

Many trucking companies hire felons (if the offense is not drug or alcohol related or violent), so if you're interested you should go for it. Some companies will pay for your schooling (approx $6000) if you agree to work for them for a year. Being used to being alone definitely works in your favor.
Kalbex 88

If you do decide to get your CDL and drive, stay away from Swift, Werner, CR England, and I wanna say JB Hunt. Those bottom feeding carriers will not teach you how to truly survive in the trucking industry and will let you drive off with minimal training and experience without worrying about your safety. Try looking up some of the best training you can get from other entry level freight companies. You won't get top dollar, but you'll learn the trade and equip yourself with valuable experience that will take you anywhere that pays better.

I once parked at a Walmart that was next to a school. Big mistake. I had my reset there on a Sunday and it seemed fine. When Monday rolled around... all these kids had parked thier cars right next to my massive semi-truck. This was like my 3rd week of driving. Lol So I had to carefully needle my truck around these kids cars. Boy was that nerve racking.

@aaron fields Are you a truck driver? Do you drive any type of vehicle that is 65 feet long? Have you tried getting out of spot where you closely blocked in by cars that no more than 10 feet long? Also where those same cars could've parked elsewhere away from the truck. How about showing some respect for our truck drivers at the end of the day. We already deal with people on the road that are eager to cut in front, break check, and intentionally causing traffic to slow down all because people are upset at an already slow vehicle. No we do not own the road and no it's right to damage other people property. But if you can't find to respect what we do to get a little rest and peace then don't order shit from Amazon, Wish, Facebook, merchandise from your favorite BRvidr, USPS, or anything

Alot of grocery stores have posted no truck signs and will boot them, so I look for that first, also, alot of docks are on the sides not in the back of the stores so I usually park near the dock out of the way and it's also not too long a walk.

Always maneuver your truck in 2 getting out, when you arrive. Don't wait till you do your business and expect to get out. Also, all grocery stores can accommodate big trucks, otherwise, they wouldn't have groceries to sell. Now weather you can park there is another story. Lol

Pulaski 4 meses atrás
"All grocery stores can accommodate big trucks", is technically true, but many of them have enough room to accommodate one or two 18-wheelers _making deliveries_ but there is certainly *not* enough room to accommodate Mr Random Truck Driver shopping for groceries. The only groceries in the town near where I live that _might_ have room to park an 18-wheeler are ones that are part of a much larger retail development, such as including a movie theater or Lowes, and even then you're depending on there being a row of 10-12 unoccupied parking spaces.

Here's an advice from a dedicated Walmart driver, you can go behind almost all Walmarts or sam's clubs, there's always space to park for a quick shop. Most of them are big enough to accommodate 53' trailers, not all of them though, go to super centers. I read someone said park at the WM dock, please do not do that.
Wicked Fisher
Wicked Fisher 3 meses atrás
There should be plenty of space to park near the dock, (delivery area in back). Just try timing your shopping after receiving hours. Also, back in to your spot. That way, you won't have to back out to leave. And if you have to stage at a warehouse waiting to unload, they'll usually let you drop your trailer to go off property briefly. Just be sure to get back on time.

Pick 1 thing u like from 3-5 of your favorite creators and find a way to combine it all to make something original. Also your videos have to be difficult for other people to copy. Whether that be by doing a high level of editing or by just vlogging your job, etc. You MUST do this. Good luck 👍

This is a thing I'd for sure have a hard time with, because I'm the kind of guy who doesn't go for groceries until everything is actually GONE. It'll be me who dies of constipation behind the wheel because I said "fuck grocery shopping" and lived on MREs for a month.

Yup. I feel your pain. People are clueless. They dont realize you are essentially driving a 6 or 7 story building.

Next time you're blocked go back into the store ask for the manager and explain to them you need them to make an announcement on the P.A. to get the car out of your way.

People like Alex are one of the reasons how this country keeps on moving forward. Without guys like Alex helping get products and goods from one location to another. Also willing to work long draining hours. We wouldn't be able to enjoy all the things we do at different stores all across this country. It's so sad that people in Washington want to go against truckers because of the year of their truck or so many different things. Just allow our great truckers like Alex to do their job without having to jump through hoops to appease some government official.

Our local Walmart has a huge lot in the front to where semis and touring musicians can park. It's pretty cool

I don’t drive a truck but I always think ahead for them and give them plenty of room to do turns and what not
