As a driver who spends a lot of time away from home, you owe it to yourself to be where you belong. That’s what you’ll find here at Dick Lavy Trucking: a warm welcome from our founder himself and plenty of pay and support to settle down—not to mention weekly home time on most routes.
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.
