Twelve months into life as an owner-driver, Adam Young showed off his UD at the Castlemaine Truck Show


Adam Young became an owner-driver 12 months ago, purchasing a 2010 UD 12-pallet rigid and pig trailer. Adam works for Border Express as a subby.

"I thought I would give it a crack and go out on my own and it’s the best thing I ever did," he says.

"I’ve had the rig just over 12 months. I’ve put new curtains on and other bits and pieces. A bit of bling, it looks the part and I get a lot of positive comments" he grinned.

Adam can carry 22 pallets and usually does 10-12 deliveries a day and then does pick-ups in the evening.

"The runs are worked out very well and Borders are a great company to subby for," he says.

"I’ve just chromed the rims and I am glad that I have as it makes my life so much easier. Everyone comments on them!

"I think it gives the rig a cleaner, more professional look. They don’t fade, you don’t have to polish them and I get weekends home with the wife and kids."

Adam finished cleaning by the time we caught up with him and he was looking forward to a great weekend with his mates.
