Apply for Site Sponsorship on

We are raising the bar on advertising to truckers by offering exclusive site sponsorship opportunities to high quality companies which sell high quality products and services to professional truck drivers.

Apply to become a site sponsor of explain the difference and what it means to you on this page.

Important Background Information features hundreds of pages of unique content that focus on various aspects of professional truck drivers

  • saving money or
  • being forced to spend more money in trucking.

We are also very frank about trucker mistakes that have cost a lot of money — and how other truckers can prevent them.

As far as we know, ours is the only website of its kind anywhere online.

Since we felt that we had been taken advantage of in trucking — and we wanted to keep our fellow truck drivers from being taken advantage of — we began to speak out.

Since 2009, we have cut through the fluff by

  • standing for substantiation of products and services marketed and sold to truckers,
  • asking hard questions and
  • asking other professional truck drivers for their input.

We have refused many individual advertising offers because we did not feel that the advertiser or product or service passed muster.

We would rather stay true to our principles and give up income opportunities than “bow the knee” to advertisers/products/services that we feel do not give good value.

We do not apologize for being picky regarding our advertisers because just as our readers trust us to provide high quality original content on our site, we believe they should be able to trust our judgment regarding from whom we accept advertising.

The same holds true for site sponsors.

We believe that when we set high standards, we attract others who have similarly high standards.

What’s the Difference Between an Advertiser and a Site Sponsor?

Beyond offering mere truck driver advertising, we are offering a small number of category-exclusive site sponsorship opportunities to those who want to create a win-win-win situation between

  • you,
  • our readers and

These are the basic differences between the two as it applies to this site:

Site Sponsorship Advertisement
Site-wide Yes No
Category-exclusive Yes No
Monthly rate Yes No

Thumb is up, meaning approval.Our acceptance of a site sponsor is our seal of approval of the company and product/service that the company sells.

Even so, we invite professional truck drivers to write a review of each product or service that a site sponsor sells.

Our sponsorship policy is such that all reviews — whether they have been written by us or others — will remain independent of a sponsorship.

If your sponsorship request meets our requirements and you agree to our Terms and Conditions, we invite you to apply.
