Love on the Open Road: Celebrating Valentine's Day with Boyd Bros.

Post Date - Feb 14, 2024

Valentine's Day is all about feeling the love, and at Boyd Bros. Transportation, we understand the importance of companionship on the open road. As professional truck drivers, the journey becomes even more special when shared with those we care about. Here are some ways our drivers can make this Valentine's Day memorable.

What better way to celebrate than by sharing the road with your loved ones? Our Rider and Pet Programs let you do just that. These programs are designed to make your over-the-road experience more enjoyable by allowing you to have a companion with you. Here are the key details:

  1. Passenger Requirements:
    • The passenger must be at least 10 years of age.
    • Only one passenger is allowed at a time.
  2. Authorization Process:
    • To have a passenger on board, drivers need to complete the Passenger Authorization form.
    • A copy of the passenger's ID must be sent to the fleet manager and HR before they are allowed to ride in the truck.

But at Boyd, the love doesn’t stop there! For drivers in our Lease Purchase program, Valentine's Day can be even more special with the addition of a furry friend. While our Rider Program is perfect for human companions, our pet policy lets you bring your dog or cat along for the ride, creating a complete family experience.

If you’re able to bring along a loved one on your Valentine’s Day journey, here are some ways to make this trip stand out among the rest.

  1. Plan a Scenic Route:
    • Choose a route with picturesque views to make the journey special.
    • Stop at scenic viewpoints or parks for a romantic picnic on the road.
  2. Create a Cozy Space:
    • Personalize your truck cabin with Valentine's Day decorations.
    • Bring along your favorite snacks and beverages for a cozy in-truck celebration.
  3. Capture the Moments:
    • Document your Valentine's Day journey with photos and videos.
    • Share your experiences on social media to spread the love.

For those of us looking for unique and creative ways to celebrate the holiday on the road, here are three ways you can make the day of love special.

Self-Care Evening: Treat yourself to a relaxing self-care evening in your truck cabin. Bring along your favorite snacks, indulge in a good book, or catch up on your favorite TV shows or movies. Take some time to unwind and pamper yourself.
