    I see lots of these orange Schneider trucks on the road, wouldn’t mind driving one someday. My question is, if I get in an accident, does the company help me out or am I responsible?

    • Aidan says:

      Hey Joshua, wow, that’s a tough question. There are so many variables to be considered, it wouldn’t really even be fair to you for me to try to give you an absolute yes or no answer. It depends on who’s at fault, whether you were driving on company time, what the accident report says and what the company’s insurance company says (which is really what it boils down to). My best suggestion is to check with the company you’re considering driving for to find out their policy on accidents.
