  3. YOU REALLY CAN DECIDE ON HOW MANY HOURS OR DAYS YOU WANT TO WORK, AND WHEN.
  4. TRUCKING IS 24/7 365 DAYS A YEAR AND WITH SO MUCH DIVERSITY, THERE'S BOUND TO BE PLENTY FOR YOU TO ENJOY.
  5. YOU CAN WEAR VIRTUALLY WHATEVER YOU LIKE SO LONG AS IT'S PRACTICAL, CLEAN AND TIDY, SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO SPEND LOTS OF MONEY ON OFFICE SUITS AND SHOES.
  6. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A 9 TO 5 JOB.
  7. EVERYDAY IS DIFFERENT SO YOU ARE VERY UNLIKELY TO GET BORED.
  8. YOUíLL SEE THE ROADS FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE ALTOGETHER, FROM THE NEARSIDE LANE ON MOTORWAYS, IT'S A SAFER AND MORE PLEASANT DRIVE, BEHIND OTHER PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVERS WHO ALSO ALLOW A SAFE DISTANCE AND PLAN AHEAD, FAR LESS FRENZIED THAN THE THIRD LANE AND IT'S SPEEDING TAILGATERS.
  9. DURING YOUR BREAK, PERIOD OF AVAILABILITY OR WHILST BEING UNLOADED,YOU CAN SURF THE NET ON YOUR SMARTPHONE OR LAPTOP, READ A NOVEL, OR TAKE A NAP ON THE COMFY COUCH IN YOUR CAB.
  1. YOU'VE HEARD THE EXPRESSION "BOYS AND THEIR TOYS", WELL GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL OF AN 100K MERCEDES TOP OF THE RANGE ACTROS WILL APPEAL TO ANY PROFESSIONAL DRIVER! YOU WOULD CONSIDER PAYING THEM TO DRIVE IT, NEVER MIND BEING PAID!
  2. IF YOU SHOULD NEED HELP OR ADVICE, OTHER DRIVERS WILL BE ONLY TOO HAPPY TO ASSIST OR ADVISE.
  3. IN THESE TIMES OF UNBELIEVEABLE FUEL PRICES, IT'S VIRTUALLY A PLEASURE TO BE PAID TO DRIVE PLACES.
  4. IF YOU LOVE THE COLOURS OF THE SUNSET, MIST HANGING OVER A LAKE, OR THE SUNRISE OVER PINETREE TOPS THEN YOU TOO WILL ENJOY THE VERY SCENIC NATURE OF TRUCK DRIVING. YOU'LL ENJOY THE VIEW OVER WALLS AND HEDGES INTO GARDENS OR FIELDS, AND SEEING THE BEAUTIFUL BRITISH LANDSCAPE AND ARCHITECTURE.
  5. TRUCKING ALLOWS YOU THE CHOICE OF BEING AN EMPLOYEE, WORKING FOR AGENCIES, OR BEING SELF EMPLOYED, SO MUCH MORE CHOICE FOR YOU.
  6. YOUR LGV LICENCE IS A TRUE INVESTMENT FOR LIFE, YOU CAN QUITE SIMPLY TAKE A BREAK OR GET BACK BEHIND THE WHEEL ANYTIME YOU LIKE KNOWING THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE ABILITY TO EARN YOUR LIVING.
  7. IT'S ADDICTIVE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE SENSE! YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL.
  8. THE CAB BECOMES YOUR PRIVATE OFFICE, YOUR SPACE, YOUR SANCTUARY TO BE ENJOYED BY YOU. YOUR MUSIC, YOUR ENVIRONMENT.
Posture of a truck driver
COMFORT AND VISIBILITY:
TRUCK VERSUS CAR
The seated position is much better than in a car, the driverís back is supported, the thighs are parallel, the head is directly above the shoulders. Truck seats have multiple adjustable lumbar supports, are heated for winter. The arm rests help to support posture and air suspension in the seat cushions the ride. The visibility is around 150 metres ahead on a straight road, or roughly ten vehicles.
Most car drivers seem to travel in the middle and third lanes,virtually ignoring the first lane, which is the safest place to travel due to itís proximity to the hard shoulder in case of an incident. The first lane is much quieter, and less frenzied, allowing for a pleasant and calm driving experience.
The car driver is subject to lumbago due to the forces applied when sitting with legs outstretched and knees higher than coccyx.
The head is forcibly held above the shoulders which can lead to back and neck ache as well as considerable stiffness when undertaking long journeys.
The vision from a car is particularly poor when behind a van for example, and is frequently a mere one or two vehicles ahead, due to many car drivers allowing little distance between cars.
