In today’s economy, professional truck drivers need money saving tips more than ever.
Think about your truck driving job. You work long hours, perhaps far from home, to earn money.
Using the tips you find on this site can help you save more money from your hard-earned paychecks — as well as help prevent you from spending time and money on that which doesn’t provide a good return on your investment.
We’re Mike and Vicki Simons. When we drove as a husband and wife truck driving team, we were “stung” financially and repeatedly in connection with our truck driving jobs.
As painful as that was, we wondered, “If we are experiencing this, how many other truckers are also being taken advantage of financially?”
We believe that even as isolated as some professional truck drivers are, not one of them should ever be forced into buying inferior products or services in connection with his or her job.
In order to protect other truckers, we decided to speak out about problems like the ones we’d had. In so doing, we became “trucker consumer advocates.”
What We Do for Truck Drivers and Why
Since our desire is to help as many truckers as possible save as much money as possible, we
- write transparently about both our successes and “bone-headed” mistakes in trucking;
- deliver information not only from our own store of knowledge but also from other experts in the field;
- ask questions about truckers saving money — including the hard questions that no one else dares touch; and
- invite other professional truck drivers to share their experiences through tips, articles and reviews.
On our fifth anniversary, we refined our slogan or tag line to succinctly summarize the reason why we started and continue to operate Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com:
“Because truckers know that no trucker deserves to be stung financially“.
It’s All About the Truck Driving Community
From the beginning, we envisioned Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com as a clearinghouse of how professional truck drivers from around the world save money — in order to help each other save money.
If every trucker contributed just one money saving tip or review on our site, imagine how the entire worldwide trucking community could benefit!
Every professional driver’s trucking experience is slightly different.
Furthermore, the needs of drivers across the industry vary greatly.
If you have an opinion that differs from the ones on this site, that’s OK! Share it!
With your help, we’re looking to expand our website to provide money saving information on lots of different topics, information that provides tangible value to you and other professional drivers everywhere.
Making Application for Truckers
