Owner Operator FAQs

Does Nova Lines accept any truck into its fleet?

Unfortunately, no. We have committed to maintaining a high level of efficiency, performance, and safety which cannot be warranted by having trucks that have already served their time. This is why we only accept truck makes and models that are not older than 10 years.

If I own my truck, is it mandatory to be governed?

One of the perks of being an owner-operator is that you get to choose how your truck runs. However, it is advised to ensure your vehicle and your own safety.

Do I need my own physical damage insurance?

Not necessarily. You can buy physical damage insurance by paying 5% of the truck value. This does not only provides you with a financial cover but also ensures peace of mind.

Do I need my own trailer?

Not necessarily. You can rent or lease a trailer from us starting from $250 weekly while we also accept trailers into our fleet that have been manufactured in the last 10 years at the time of contract.

Who pays for tolls?

Contractors are liable for paying their tolls. On the other hand, our trucks are equipped with Prepass Elite Pass to ensure convenience and quick bypasses.

How much experience do I need?

We require at least 1 year of CDL-A experience, and 3 months or more of Flatbed experience, all within the past 3 years.

Driver Reviews

Extremely friendly, professional staff

Drivers here are treated like human beings, they know you by name, not truck numbers. Extremely friendly yet professional staff, im glad I made the move. The pay is great and couldnt ask for better equipment. When you have an issue they go above and beyond to accomodate the situation and do their best to keep you from sitting in limbo. This company is worth every ounce of loyalty a driver could ever have for his job.

Nova Lines is a Great Company

Nova Lines is a great company, one of the better companies I have worked for. They have a supportive office staff. I get along great with my dispatcher. I have driven their older and newer trucks and they are running good and well maintained. I have hauled many different loads which caused me to sharpen my skills. Never sat more than a day

I like Nova Lines, it feels like a family over here.

I like Nova Lines, it feels like a family over here. Everyone is friendly, and I feel we are developing a great employer/contractor relationship. Another big plus is the equipment. Even as a company contractor, they’ve assigned me a fresh 2021 Freightliner Cascadia, along with all the small details like inverters, refregirator, new mattress, parksmart system, and so on.

Roxy C. — Company Driver

I finally realized what it is like to work for a company who really wants nothing more from you than to succeed!

Nova was a company I strived to work for since I got the itch to go be a flatbed driver. Everyone there are great people to work with and they shoot it to you straight. I couldn’t be happier than to be working for a great company like Nova Lines and plan to spend many years with them!

I have found the company for me.

Came here skeptical. But the people here from the CEO all the way down to the shop and recruiters. Their all the best. They are about their money. But they care about their drivers as family. I have found the company for me.
