** The client has the option to award the job to the lowest bidder, or to a higher bidder based on feedback ratings. In one episode Jarrett bids $1500 on a job. Marc in turn bids $2000, betting on his reputation to get the load. Despite the $500 difference Marc wins.



* BoringYetPractical: Everyone else on the show has trailers hitched to their trucks (A van in Jarrett's case), which is more practical for smaller loads (like animals). In Season 4, Jarrett replaces his van/trailer with a church bus and rips out most of the seats to create cargo space.

* ConflictBall: Generated between Jarrett and Marc, when a customer is -- for some reason -- permitted to demand Jarrett's shipment arrive before Marc's, under threat of no payment. This even though Jarrett has much further to travel with his shipment. It is so contrived that one half-expects it to turn out to be a big put-on against the rookie, but as far as we ever see, it's played totally straight.
