HI EDDIE IT.S ME JONH DUNKS
i am a stobart driver the moneys ok ( hourly rate) but you get meal allowance driving allowance so it adds up to around 39000 a year so yeah the moneys good.and you DONT get a tag for the humber just dartford,severnand m6 toll /(which is great saves hours of sitting in traffic) and ok the programme is ott but hey it d be boring watching a driver doing nothing but drive all day .
i used to drive for them it was so good i webt to the f1 seeson
you really need to remember how important a trukers job is ecspecially s.barts
i think the two people sat behind the driver of the horse box should stop and think what would happen if the driver had to break suddenly - they would go through the front windscreen! get some seatbelts on!

why do we have stobarts on tv, you would think it was the only transport firm in england its only a work horse what brings cash in at the end of the week, tesco/asda/morrisons/etc etc all put food on the shelfs not just one transport firm, come on look what you are looking at.
stev, durham police
dear graham, i am a traffic officer and we deal with all kinds of traffic we also deal with drivers like yourself driving from 5ton to 100 ton just because you drive a big truck the LAW is still the same you had to start somewere so dont always pick on car drivers ok???? p/s and dont speed.
truck drivers have to put up with a lot if you think the job is easy try yourself car drivers of britain could do with a wagon awareness scheme to understand what they have to put up with when the drivers of these lorries are cut up by cars you try stopping quick when 30tonnes plus is pushing you forward
If you dont like it dont watch it.
Dont moan about it you can always turn over or turn off. I have to put up with people talking sport which i hate always saying if onlywe did this.......................
dont worry everyone im going to buy them out in sept lol
stuart sorry to say this but 15 drops isnt exactaly multi drop eathe i do 50 to 70 drops a day pluss collections and cover about 200 miles a day
I Love you fiona
EX STOBART DRIVER (YEARS AGO b regs)
i did not see it any good just talking & jumping in & out of the cab it was so so borring i bet all the young trucks cannot wait to park up at 7;50 pm to see it phones off c.b off/ leave paperwork till later than it never gets done till you are back at base, there is more to life than eddie stobarts trucks dont get me wrong they are nice trucks i used to drive them when they were on a b.reg not the comfort you have now days i am what you call a old timer thats been there done that got the T-shirt, this is for the young h.g.v drivers (KEEP ON TRUCKING & LOOK OUT FOR THE BIRD IN THE AIR GOOD BUDDY 10-4.
EX STOBARTS DRIVER
when she went over the humber bridge fiona did not pay, there is a tag on the winscreen why did she say its bloody pricey to come over STOBARTS PAY THE TOLL. i 2nd that (deanog)she was on the west bound side..
Fiona even though u r 1 good trucker and still look as good as ever like the others the 1st series made u look great but maybe u and the otherd r getting tobig 4 ur boots
i have a big point
stobart are great but they have money to help them if you were to lookat little companys that take on big jobs with little equitment stobart do there part but lets not forget about the little companys
how come when fiona came over the humber bridge to drive into Hull she was on the west bound side of the dual carriageway looking at the traffic queue going into Hull ?
You should have used that sat nav luv!!
The tunnel was the mersey tunnel
6 drops!! try tuffnells, 50-60 drops a day. tricky24, it`s not only stobart who stack the shelves, i do too. my days are never as glamorous as this program perceives a truckers day to be either. interesting series all the same.
dunno wat tunnell he was getting on but the channel tunnel has plenty of room , put in to dramatise peraphs eddie
we love eddie stobart drivers , so i dont see what the problem is andy fox , do you work in the trucking industury ?
excellent show, wish all trucking companys could be as professional as Stobarts.Drivers seem to be appreciated , we dream on eh!
why complain about stobarts. i seen lots of their trucks in and out of towns on the roads and spoken to a few as well at motorway services. they love the jobs and because of the money, they do it because it a job and they love it and it helps to pay the bills anf keep us all in food and whatever else we may need for our lifestyle. without stobarts the shops would be empty most the time ?
all the people with these negative comments and insults i have one thing to say to you don't watch if you don't like it simple as that stobart drivers work as hard as any other truck driver i am a truck driver o i know what im talking about
loveing the stobarts.... seems like a cushty job to have good pay etc... haters here this become a builders merchant h.g.v. class 2 driver 14ton truck down a 7.5 limit then in a driver way that a mini would find tight in a crapy old 55plate banged up merc with a sliping cluch and a rer mount crane thats just had its days blowing hoses daily lol NOW THATS A MANS JOB... king regards one of jewson drivers
I know I shouldn't really watch it because my comments negative but please any hgv driver could do this job its so dramatised....how many of those lot could handle car transporter driving??? Hmmm kind regards....Mr B autologic employee :)
I don't get why people are complaining, if you don't like the show, why are you watching it ?
Ok another comical episode.... The train is easy to board and you have loads of room. 2 Allot of stobart drivers cant drive properly. Im a truck driver they are no different than the rest of us. Show has poor editing and massive over reaction.
its all publicity to stobart they must be raking it on with all the tv... the only one i like too see is fiona..she enjoys her job but still a girl at heart........
drivers show off the show just like big kids who got nowt else better so do
I can't understand why it was acceptable to take on the driver with the wife and kid, but not the driver who only had a girlfriend for the f1 tyre job. Seemed to be a stupid reason to turn someone down for the job.
Why are there so many haters out there. It is clear to me that all truck drivers work hard weather they work for Stobart, Malcolms or whoever love the program. All you haters SMILE
Sorry but 6 drops and 2 collections is not proper multi-drop, try 15 drops plus collections. Stobart work is not that difficult, there are plenty of drivers who work harder.

Did I here right ? " When delevering her mushrooms Fiona had to hand her keys in to prevent her driving off in the wrong truck " Thats sex discrimination she may be a woman but she`s not that thick anon ? ? ? LOL......Well strange when i hand my keys in its to protect the person unloading the truck as it has been known for trucks to pull off bays with fork trucks inside anon
i love eddiies stobbart i wish at i could dive hgv
andy fox remember sunshine ,its eddies drivers that make sure theres food that ends up on your plate every week,
y did that man go through instead of scott he was much better the mans truck was called kajata is that a girls name ?
when i was on the road stobart drivers were sacked for not wearing a shirt and tie - seeing drivers going for pirelli job in civvies shows how far backwards the company has gone .
andy fox are you a truck driver yourself? Or are you just assuming what a truck driver does?
i agree with you lucy some people are not happy unless they are moaning!
What is it with you people! does matter if Stobarts have fancy trucks or if they can drive or if they look smart. They are still a trucking firm, they still make millions, if can't stop whining stop watching it. put up and shut up or bog off
