The top 50% of Melton drivers earned an average of $98k/year in 2022.

“I’ve worked for 5 different flatbed companies and Melton is by far the best. We have better medical benefits, great pay, and the $100 tarp pay is great. There may be other companies out there that pays that much for tarping, but I haven’t heard of them. I’ve talked to a lot of Melton drivers and all the drivers I talk to are very happy about the $100 tarp pay.”

– Bobby, Melton Driver & Road Trainer


Complete medical coverage, a generous 401k program, and more.

“I am mindful of retirement; I want a 401K and not all companies offer that. That was something that drew me to Melton. Coming to Melton was a family decision and, everything I have seen about Melton, is this is a family company.”

– Brady, Melton Driver


The average age of our fleet is less than two years old.

“I appreciate the fact that Melton really focuses on truck appearance and maintenance. Melton showcases uniformity and they want us to keep our trucks clean. Plus, they don’t hold back when it comes to maintenance issues; they get issues taken care of ASAP.”

– Steve, Ambassador of the Road


Drivers have options and flexibility with their home time.

“I’ve been with Melton for 22 years. Melton’s owner, Bob, and all of the staff not only listens to drivers’ concerns, but also takes care of them. Here, you’re not just a number, you’re a face with a name. The company has tremendous respect for us and our families. Spouses are just as much a part of Melton as everyone else. They know that a happy driver is more successful.”

– Alton, Senior Ambassador of the Road
