We pay like a major carrier, but feel like a home business.
Because we were.

Mr. Lavy ran the company out of his house for the first 16 years. Though it’s long since expanded beyond his four walls, the place still feels like home.

CDL-A Driver

At Dick Lavy Trucking, you'll find pay and perks comparable to large carriers, but in a smaller, homelike atmosphere. From our start as a one-man/one-truck home business to our current state as a mid-size carrier, Mr. Lavy has focused on keeping the business personal. He leads by example, knowing drivers by name and even picking them up for orientation.

Here are the other major reasons drivers choose to call us home.
