Yeah mate I drive a Hooklift for a living, the hours aren't the greatest 6am-4pm Monday to Friday and 6am-11am Saturday.

 

The job can be a complete pain in the ass when you need to reverse the truck into a spot a car won't fit into. Other than that I enjoy being out on the road all day and not stuck in an office.

 

I tend to make about $850 a week, what about you?

Mate I've been a interstate driver for many years.

Do you want to do local / intrasrate or interstate?

Upgrading to an articulate licence if you can get Origin to pay for it would be a benifit to you

Our youngest brother has his HC license and drives local.

 

Pretty sure he drives a tipper with a super dog trailer.

 

Does about 50hrs a week clears over $1k.

I'm a fleet controller for a Transport company here in Perth.

 

I manage 51 Volvo Prime Movers, 10 of them being Pocket/Road Trains, 20 being attached to Sidelifters full time and the rest 42' Flat Decks/Skels etc.

 

My drivers are working 12 hour days almost every day of the week and taking home $1100+.
