Trucking Jobs in Construction
If you are looking for the best truck driving jobs that you can do and still be home every night, you have several options. There are other types of truck driving jobs that do not necessarily require you to drive cross-country, or even to drive a semi tractor-trailer. For instance, there are many types of trucking jobs in construction and related fields.
Aggregate haulers pick up and deliver rocks, sand and gravel using a variety of truck and trailer types, such as end dumps, belly dumps, super dumps, and side dumps.
Construction companies often need drivers to operate water trucks, cement mixers or semis pulling flatbed trailers to move heavy equipment from one location to another.
It is important to realize that thess types of driving jobs, like other jobs in the construction industry, may have seasonal restrictions. If work stops or slows during the winter or rainy season, your hours may be cut drastically. Some of these jobs require or prefer that you have a Class A CDL, some will provide on-the-job training to help you acquire a CDL, and others only ask for a Class B CDL.
