Our founder and President was a driver. Geary Buchanan drove for 24 years before starting Buchanan Hauling & Rigging, Inc. Now an industry leader, Buchanan understands what it’s like to be a driver and the challenges you face. 

Celebrating 25 years in business in 2021Buchanan understands the fluctuating market. 

Buchanan understands you need one point of contact. You'll have daily contact with your Driver Manager. They will understand your needs regarding weekly revenue to the truck, home time, and the like. 

Buchanan understands financial demands. We pay weekly. Load information submitted by midnight Monday paid on Friday’s direct deposit. 

Buchanan understands you have questions. Drivers may contact any department directly - it's our version of an 'open door policy' for our driving fleet. Questions or concerns about your settlement, safety, or company policy are welcomed at all levels of Buchanan. 

Buchanan understands you might have friends that want to join you. We offer a generous Driver Recruiting Bonus that puts cash in your pocket.

Buchanan understands without drivers, no one else has a job. Buchanan understands, values, and appreciates our drivers.
