It's mostly scripted with a dose of reality.
16 July 2019 | by w_kieferSee all my reviews

First off, it's a fun show and a little fascinating watching how some of these strange loads get from point A to point B. I think that the show does display real transporters, their real equipment, real loads, and real shipping. I also think that nearly all the drama is forced, fake, and completely inserted into the show to make it more interesting. I think that the personalities of the characters are vastly exaggerated. Roy isn't a complete jerk, Jarrod isn't a naive clutz, and Jennifer isn't a damsel in distress. That's all made up. Getting permits to haul heavy equipment across state lines, renting equipment, coordinating pickups and dropoffs, and tying down loads however is not. Ultimately it's fun to watch, but if you've seen one episode you've seen them all.
