Raising the Standards of the Trucking Industry


Truckers and TracFone


Over the road trucking is demanding work that requires constant communication between the driver, dispatcher and the customer. As an OTR driver, one is away from home for weeks at a time. Having to worry about the bills piling up at home is something a driver can live without. It did not take professional drivers long to discover the convenience of the “TracFone.”

TracFone is the largest prepaid wireless phone company in the United States. Presently offering 16 types of phones ranging from $10.00 to $100.00, it has become a favorite within the trucking industry! With such plans as “pay as you go” or monthly and yearly plans, truckers don’t have to worry about the bill at home laying on the table collecting dust.

Like any service, it is always best to investigate the many different plans that TracFone offers, in order to come up with the right plan for you and your budget. Be sure to get everything in writing and ask questions such as minutes and/or phone transfers, loss of phone and reimbursement policies. TracFone can be found at many retail stores including most truck stops and of course, Walmart. Therefore, it is essential to know the facts about your service provider.

Offering NO CONTRACTS, NO CREDIT CHECKS, NO DEPOSITS, and NO ACTIVATION FEES, the TracFone is the perfect wireless phone service for the trucking life. And, since nobody can cover more ground faster than an over the road trucker, TracFone’s nationwide service goes right along with them!
