Testimonials

At Boyd Bros., I feel like I’m lucky to be part of a great organization --more like we’re all family here, working together as a team! Personally, I say thank you for putting up with me, I know sometimes I’m like sand paper-- a little rough. So, as we continue to work towards 2 million safe miles… I say, Thank You!"


Either for million milers or just because, this is one of the few places that drivers still get treated like humans. It means a lot.


From a shipper: “Our Shipping Supervisor asked me to pass along to you that Robert has such a great attitude and is so agreeable & helpful that he just made her day! Robert has been here before & we would like to see him a lot more!”


From another shipper: "[Your] drivers did a fantastic job. They communicated well en route and they were very timely on each one of the multiple stops. Both of the drivers were helpful and had positive attitudes... they were very professional and did a great job serving us."

Praise

Beth Steed, Inside Sales, received an email from Michael Archual at Qontinuity Enterprises.  Excerpts are shown below.

“Thanks for your help on this one!  I’ve been in the business 43 years – actually, 43 years as of today!  And I have worked in executive positions for some of the largest carriers in the country.  And I can tell you – hands down – Boyd Bros is the best flatbed carrier out there.” 

“As you know, this business has so many moving parts and so many things that can go wrong – many of which it is impossible to control (weather, traffic, etc).  The key is “communication”.  I always like to be the one to tell the Customer that one of those moving parts affected the “plan”, before they find out about it from someone else.  I want to be the one to surprise them with both the good and bad news!”


As a driver that has 18 years of driving experience, I have always went to were "the money is". Today I have been with Boyd Bros 5 years. This is the longest time that I have worked for a company. I have one of the best FM in the company. Cherie Ragan Harris, we made another year! I take it one week at a time. And 5 years and over 400,000 safe miles later, I am still taking it one week at a time.


Ruth Brummitt, Driver Manager in Clayton, shares with us...

“I just got off the phone with Steve at American Cast Iron in Lakeville, MN and wanted to share with everyone how complimentary he was about our drivers. He said the last several drivers of ours that have come in there to unload have been so nice and pleasant, all had a smile on their face and were very helpful and he wanted us to know how much he appreciates it. He said you don’t find it very often any more.”


“I was just talking to a senior driver from kreilkamp out of Allentown, WI. I was explaining to him about Boyd Bros.’s million mile celebrations. He says, 'my company does nothing like that.' At Boyd Bros., I feel like I’m lucky to be part of a great organization --more like we’re all family here, working together as a team! Personally, I say thank you for putting up with me, I know sometimes I’m like sand paper-- a little rough. So, as we continue to work towards 2 million safe miles… I say, Thank You!"

…I heard the same thing from a TMC driver. He was amazed that we do things like that. Either for milliom milers or just because. This is one of the few places that drivers still get treated like humans. Means a lot.


In a message sent from a shipper he was praised with comments such as “Our Shipping Supervisor asked me to pass along to you that Robert has such a great attitude and is so agreeable & helpful that he just made her day! Robert has been here before & we would like to see him a lot more!”


A Melton driver called today to tell us that truck #7864 (Lendell Shelby) really helped him with his load. He wanted us to know we had a good driver in Lendell. Thank you, Lendell, for representing Boyd Bros. in such a positive way!!


Thanks to Allen Reynolds of Southern AgCom for letting us know what a good job our drivers are doing for him. He said in an email to Roy Johns, North/Canada Leader; “Roy, I wanted to let you know what a good drivers you have. Ike (8274) and Rashad (7748) were the two drivers that delivered our shipments within the last two weeks. They did a fantastic job. They communicated well while in route and they were very timely on each one of the multiple stops. Both of these guys were helpful and had positive attitudes. Many times delivery drivers act like they are inconvenienced. Not these two, they were very professional and did a great job serving us, the customer.”
