No,it's not really too much work. Beentheredonethat nailed it. It goes out to my first stop of the morning, it's the last thing I pickup. I'm in a remote area, and only a couple of us nearby with trucks big enough to do the pickup. Only problem, we all have heavy pickups (and only have P5's nearby). P5's and P57's nearby. They can't even come close to picking up these packages (because shelves get in the way). Plus, saves the other drivers from having to be my backup pickup drivers. Before the TP60, we would have 2-4 drivers a day stopping by trying to pickup the extras. Now only once in a blue moon do I call in one guy. Trust me, you don't find ANY of my coworkers complaining about the Pup. These boxes are all 60-70#'s so they are glad not to have to come over and load them up. LOL
Oh, and I bid the route with the TP60, so it was known it was being put on there after the other driver retired. He was in a P7 before and would DAILY have 4 drivers coming to help him. It's an easy 20 cents an hour all day. And before anyone says that's not much, it's a nice chunk if you think about I get paid it all day and I NEVER touch those packages. I don't mind, and no they don't expect me back earlier. This company has a guaranteed later pickup time, so no way for me to be done "early". I don't mind it, and it's a "tad" bigger then a horse trailer. I know, I own a couple and use them. I could maybe fit one horse into this, and they wouldn't be happy about it. I'd say more it's like the utility cargo trailers out there.
