Our partner of the month for August is Gracefully Trucking Inc. We caught up with Vinson to chat with him about how the company got started and what keeps them trucking.

  • Please tell us a little more about your business.

My company is Gracefully Trucking Inc. We drive refrigerated flatbed trucks and transport anything from A-Z. If it ships, we’ll transport it.

  • When did you get started?

I started the business in 1997 from scratch basically.

  • What is most challenging about what you do for a living?

Dealing with traffic. I am my own mechanic so I don’t really have to deal with many mechanical issues.

  • What advice would you give to someone just starting out in this business?

Get some experience under your belt before trying to do it on your own. There is a lot to learn.

  • How do you keep a work-life balance?

It kind of just comes naturally. I grew up in this business.

  • Anything you’d like to add?

Pay4Freight is easy to work. They’re a very tight-knit family over there, and being a partner with them for 7-10 years, I have a very close relationship with them.
