Meet the Companies: Valley Carriers

The trucking industry is full of job opportunities and great companies to work for. Our truck students have access to exclusive job postings and career presentations that provide a chance to rub elbows with some of these companies, but we wanted to go more in depth. This week continues our feature on some of the companies that we work with and that we recommend for employment!

Truck Stop Safety

Are you hitting the road on a long-distance journey? Chances are you may need to stop at a truck stop, especially if you’re a professional truck driver, or even if you’re hauling a larger load like a boat or a recreational vehicle. When utilizing these truck-stop facilities, it’s important to remember that it’s a shared space and regardless if you’re there for work or leisure, everyone is working hard to get to where they need to be safely and on time.

Sharing the Road with Buses

Now that school is back in session, bus ridership has increased and you’re more likely to encounter buses on your daily drive. We share the roadway with a number of different buses including city buses, accordion buses, cable buses, HandyDART buses, special activity buses, coach and tour buses, and school buses! Where you live greatly influences which type of bus you will likely come into the most contact with, but regardless of where you live and what type of bus you see most often, the rules and regulations surrounding them remain constant.

Top 5 Big Rig Movies

There have been countless movies featuring cars like the 1948 Ford De Luxe Convertible in Grease, the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle in The Love Bug, the 1967 Shelby GT 500 in Gone in 60 Seconds, the 1970 Dodge Charger in The Fast and The Furious, the 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 in Back to the Future, and the list goes on and on! Those are for another day though; what about trucks - and not just trucks - but big rigs? There are a lot of movies featuring big rigs possessed by demons or driven by a serial killer but what about the fun loving, family-oriented, risk-taking, and hardworking truckers!

 “Thank you so much for your professional approach to driver training.  I missed learning to drive in my teenage years and needed to quickly learn the rules of the road in order to pass my road test for a new job.  

The kind of service I received from Valley driving was excellent and of high caliber.  I did the entire program and all of it was useful to helping me pass my exam.  My experience with my instructor is to be commended immensely.  He was patient and helpful as I learned to drive, and without him I likely would not have passed that road test!  I'm thoroughly impressed by Valley Driving as a business and would like all of you to know that I appreciate how well each of you do your work.  Thanks!”
