From Uber Driver to Trucking Expert
Five years ago, Justin’s life took an unexpected turn. He was an Uber driver, shuttling passengers to their destinations, when a serendipitous encounter with a trucker in South Carolina changed everything. As Justin recalls, “I never thought I’d be a trucker. I picked up a guy who was a trucker in South Carolina, and he sold me on the industry out there.” And just like that, he decided to enroll in trucking school, setting the wheels of destiny in motion.
The Special Touch of Just Truckin’s Truck
For Justin, his truck is more than just a mode of transport; it’s an extension of himself. His journey began with a Volvo 670 VNL, and it wasn’t long before he put his personal touch on it. “My truck isn’t just a truck; it’s a statement. It’s an extension of who I am,” he proudly states. With a custom grill made from eighth-inch steel and adorned with a bold Cummins “C,” his truck became a signature on the road, turning heads wherever it went. But Justin’s journey didn’t stop there. He later upgraded to a Kenworth W900 with an 86-inch sleeper, a rolling masterpiece with custom interior, bumper, stacks, and more.
Memorable Trips and Family Adventures
While the allure of the open road has taken Justin on countless adventures, the most cherished journeys are those spent with his family. From the rugged coastlines of Maine to the thundering majesty of Niagara Falls, they’ve explored it all together. “Anything with the family is the best trips. We’ve seen the East Coast together, and it’s been incredible,” he beams, reminiscing about their unforgettable experiences.
Facing Challenges Head-On
Trucking, like life, is not without its challenges. Justin has faced his fair share, from sudden drive shaft failures on the highway to a locked-up motor. But in his words, “I’m a problem solver. When challenges come my way, I figure out how to fix them and keep going.” One incident involved calling an Uber XL to transport a damaged drive shaft, with his wife’s assistance, making repairs on the side of the road to ensure he met his delivery schedule.
Advice for Aspiring Truckers
For those considering a career in trucking, Justin offers straightforward advice: “Learn the little things. YouTube is your friend. Knowing how to fix minor issues can save you a lot.” He’s a firm believer that arming yourself with basic mechanical knowledge is invaluable in the world of trucking.
The Trucking Community’s Camaraderie
One aspect that Justin holds dear is the sense of camaraderie within the trucking community. “The trucking community is like a big family. We help each other out and want to see everyone succeed,” he says. While truckers may be known for their strong personalities, beneath the surface, there’s a deep-rooted sense of unity and support.
