Knight Transportation Complaints & Reviews

Knight TransportationThey have elimination clauses, so be careful

Guys, before you hire the company Knight Transportation, check all their elimination clauses. When I hired them, no one told me that they would refuse to take any items or furniture. When they arrived to pick the items, they started to sort it, and I was shocked. The rep told me that I needed to check their elimination clauses and heard about them for the first time. They must warn their customers about it.

Resolved Knight TransportationBad service

Wow, thought it might have been a good outfit 2 work 4. Most things are ok but the equiptment is pure junk. Turned down the first 3 trucks. stinky, smelly, dirty, broke down pieces of *** 4 sure. Having u running with trucks that would not and cannot pass any inspection and could care less if they do. Been to 3 of their shops and talk about dum ***, these grease monkeys could not find or fix a dam thing... Have not found A TRAILER yet that was not in need of repair. Was in a yard when DM said find an empty. Yea right, of the 32 in the yard not a dam one was travel ready, flats, blow outs, missing door latches, you name it they have it. Simply *** equiptment...

    Knight Transportation couldn't give a rats ### about a driver. The Gulport, Miss. terminal are nothing more but a bunch of money pocketing crooks. Wayne, the terminal mgr. is the chief crook. This company should be called, "Fly By Knight Transportation". And the mechanic shop is a douchebagery.

Resolved Knight TransportationTerrible experience

I worked for knight for 2 years. In august they kept me out for 6 weeks. Right before labor day I got back to my terminal in Carlisle, PA. That was the wednesday before labor day. When asked what day I would be ready to go back out I said Tuesday after labor day. They said I could only take four days off since that was company policy.

I said but you all did not get back home when i asked to be. I was out for 6 weeks and should be off for 6 days. Thats when i was informed to clean out my truck if I wanted to be off that long. Although they had no freight to haul until tuesday, I asked for a load sunday or monday to comply with company policy hometime, they still had me clean out my truck. I had to call for someone to pick me up I lived 162 miles away.

Brian Lewis the terminal manager and my dispatcher Victor refused to work with me. Reason they had more people coming out of orientation that day than trucks. I was the second person they did that to that day alone.

    Is this the same Knight Transportation with their main terminal out of Phoenix, Arizona? I am planning on applying for them, but I am not sure now. Morris, if this is the same company, please let me know. Thank you.

    I agreed with all of complaint that were put out by drivers. I was an owner operator with Knight in Tukwila, WA
    Aarron and other terminal managers in that office are all for themself. FOR ALL DRIVERS...DO NOT APPLY WITH KNIGHT. IT IS THE SAME AS SWIFT AND CR ENGLAND...
