A Mission of Purpose:
A Family Business Stays The Course Well Into Its Second Generation.
Forest Gaines started Gaines Motor Lines in 1947 with a single truck and trailer. Today, Gaines is run by Forest and Tim. The family business now includes a 148-truck fleet, a team of professional drivers and mechanics, and a customer service staff equipped with the latest technology.
Although many things have changed over the years, the deep-rooted commitment to the philosophy Forest established decades ago continues to guide the company and its employees: "Do whatever has to be done to satisfy the customer."
Satisfaction—that’s our promise
By eliminating excessive handling, indirect routing, and transfers, we can promise that your freight will arrive undamaged and on time—every time. Does your carrier make that kind of promise?
Thanks to our many locations, you’re always close to a Gaines management representative and our customer service personnel. Why settle for a voice on the phone representing a faceless corporation headquartered thousands of miles away, when Gaines is right there where you need us to be?
