Congratulations to our March Featured Driver, John Beck!
As a kid, John used to watch the television show, “Movin’ On”, so, he knew he was going to be an owner-operator from the age of four.
John got his CDL in 1993 and has been trucking for 25 years! He’s been with Powersource Transportation for nearly four years. He drives a 2007 Freightliner Columbia equipped with a long slide, locking 5th wheel, straps/chains/binders, ratchets/winches, a headache rack, light bar, and over-size equipment. He also holds doubles, triples, and tankers endorsements!
John loves to haul cars for Reliable Carriers because he gets to go the auctions and see all of the really cool cars! His favorite part about driving a truck for a living is the freedom. He likes to compare his job as a truck driver to Tom Selleck’s character as a cowboy in the movie, “Monte Walsh”, – just as the cowboy gets paid to ride, John gets paid to drive!
John has been married to his wife, Michelle, for 28 years. Together, they have three daughters and four granddaughters. In his spare time, John enjoys playing with his grandchildren and cooking – he sure loves his BBQ! He also enjoys shooting and fishing!
Thanks for all that you do here, John! We’re so proud to have you on our team!!
