    SO TESLA IS TANKING....YOUR THOUGHTS

    Someone on this post was talking about Tesla owners being snobs. The Tesla cars that I have delivered treated me really well and tip well. Tesla is so far behind with the car logistics that they are reaching out for more carriers and talking about building their own fleet.

    Trains run on electric power. They have its own charging station. Diesel runs the generators, in turn, produces the electricity for the electric motors on the axle.

    I haul Tesla cars out of Freemont. They are building on the factory. They are 3 months back order. Also, he has hired a bunch NASA engineers from Cape Canaveral area. Already relocated about 10 families to Bellvue WA area. These guys are in the 6 digits for pay. had the tour of the car plant and the plant that is building the rockets. The 2 factories are mind-blowing. Have a customer that is buying all the totaled Teslas that he can find. He converts them to gas cars. He gave me a ride in an 80s Datsun Z and when he stepped on it, I could not get out of the seat. Runs 9s in a 1/4 and gets about 600 miles before a charge.

    Car Transport Cost???

    You people were not directed at you. I have never hauled for as far as I know of, so I cannot comment about your company. When I go on Central Dispatch, It's amazing what is posted. Want the car to move fast, charge a good price. The brokers that we haul for are getting the money. What are these brokers doing different that has been in business for 20 plus years doing differently? A joke of a Freight Forwarder, UShip. Be careful with them. They do no background check. And stress will take a toll on your health. Please take care of yourself and hope things work out. I'm sure my day will be coming to the end as a driver. It's not a job for me, it's more of a hobby because I enjoy driving and meeting the different kinds of people in all the different walks of life. So with that said, I do not let the industry get to me. Take care of yourself. Dave, the country traveler.

    Doing dumb things, who has done this?

    That is common. See that in trucks stops often.

    Doing dumb things, who has done this?

    Very few are around compared to years ago. Like drag strips. Only a few survived the chopping block.
