Exactly what brostalss said, practice. When I first started I remember being a little nervous just pulling out of the center in the morning, as the package cars are parked within inches of one another. But after a couple weeks it’s become so easy I wonder why I was so worried in the beginning.

Also, confidence. Be confident in your abilities. UPS wouldn’t have hired you if you couldn’t do it, just tell yourself “I got this” and get it done.

Just wait until you need to back a 53' traier into a spot a 53' trailer has no business being in.:speechless:

It ain’t yours! You have to lose that little edge of fear, but still take pride in not hitting anything.

Just leave the truck a open spot. The car wash will move it later.

The hardest part is finding reverse.

Remember when the Spicer transmissions came out, you'd actually had to think about putting it in the correct gear.

When they first started testing those Spicers in package cars the drivers hated them. Mostly because they tended to explode on a regular basis.

Once you've scraped some paint and taken out a few mirrors, you'll get the hang of it eventually.

If I don't have any space to get in, I'll park it In the middle and let car wash deal with it. Least that'll get them off their phones... They don't fuel the damn things anyway

Deplorable.
Practice is the only thing that'll make you better. Its a learned craft, and it's only gotten easier now that virtually the entire fleet has power steering.
