Gary’s Retirement

We would like to wish a very happy retirement to Gary Jeffers. After forty years driving a truck, he is ready for some relaxation. We wish Gary many years of relaxation, and plenty of time to spend with loved ones. We would like to thank Gary, for his commitment, service and professionalism as a driver for Dick Lavy Trucking.

New Pay Package

Dick Lavy Trucking has recently made new changes to our Pay Package! We have issued a new structure of driver pay per mile, added pay increases within the 2014 year and revamped how mileage is paid.

On top of all of these changes, Mr. Lavy is still keeping yearly pay increases for drivers until they have reached our top pay (call to hear about the new top pay)!

Drivers interested in learning more about these changes are encouraged to contact our Recruiting department. Call us at 1-888-987-0654 and dial two.
