cost of a life Drivers die due to working long hours. William stobart does not care. Office workers leave a non white cup on a desk, william stobart goes into a rage. Lesson to be learnt- die by all means but use a white cup at all time!!!!!!! blue cup lover11:38pm Sat 1 Jun
strange managers Its funny how all stobart warehouse managers are fat, bold and seem to tint there eyelashes. Other than useless it must be a required trate. Strange! idiot eddie spotter6:15pm Tue 21 May

Boring A series on the love life of the mayfly would be more interesting than this.
Trying to give lorry driving some "celebrity" status.
What next? a series on shelf stacking in Tesco? P V 7:48pm Fri 4 Jan
cant understand how the general public are so stupid when commenting on the illegal goings on of this shameful haulage company This company shows a one sided view.
The t v company that filmed it ,channel 5 is bias and gives a restricted view of this company.
Eddie stobarts have been proven to have broken laws,
They work the drivers crazy hours, some have crashed ,injuries and deaths.
The company makes drivers redundent and is a real sham.
Its a shame the UK general public can not see this.
Take a close look in your rear view mirror, there's an Eddie Stobart driver,tired and working illegally right behind you. expose this sham company11:22am New Years Day
great show! never thought the workings of a haulage company would be so fascinating. Caro6:48pm Fri 7 Dec
i love trucks i really enjoyed the episodes that i watched on foxtel because i love semi's from r wilson australia roger dodge4:20am Fri 9 Nov
Complete rubbish I truly think these Morgan's believe they hold celebrity status,when in reality they are in dead end jobs earning no more than 8 pounds an hour,eating a junk diet in there back seat,and going for a dump in the bushes
Tickles 8:46pm Wed 31 Oct
tessa who would come home from driving all day to watch this??? terry8:18pm Wed 31 Oct
Not just Stobarts A lot of these family companies look after you until they merge with bigger companies, or a Director who has no idea and is only in it for his own making makes it look good to advertise what a great company you are with the media.In the back ground they are treating most of the staff like dirt unless your at the top of the ladder or don`t mind having a brown tongue.The smaller the company the better you get treated so Stobarts are no exception now a days.I have worked for a company since leaving school and when you see them promote themselves you think what a load of tosh and it gets worse after 40 years Dixton11:49am Mon 29 Oct
Industry wreckers Stobarts are wrecking our industry moving in on contracts getting rid of drivers who have the right to decent pay and conditions and replaceing them with fuel tank polishers who will work for buttons but love to sign autographs what a joke .Get real and see them for what they are. A proper driver3:06pm Thu 25 Oct
British Units Why are trailer lengths only given in metres why not at least give the good old imperial equivalent in feet please. It will sound more impressive as the figure will be 3 times as much and appease the many people who prefer and better understand feet. Thank you. Markie8:50pm Wed 24 Oct
Worst show ever made Truly the biggest joke and stretch of a tv show ever made anywhere. For that though it's funny to watch and make fun of. Carlos7:37pm Wed 17 Oct
Fake investment Stobarts sponsor super league, what a joke! It was all about advertising with no money forthcoming. Thank god there dropping Stobarts next season. Bad dishonest company! Saints forever4:59pm Thu 2 Aug
eddie stobart im the worlds biggest eddie fan i always wave to the drivers they alway give me a beep wave flash i love eddie stobart so much xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx louis2:28pm Tue 24 Jul
surprised at the of the company SAD What a suprise! I thought such a big company as Eddie Stobbart would be more professional. After seeing all the comments and watching the program and googling them I am amazed people still use them. They appear to break every rule. Also having read the Ross vs Stobbart case on google it makes me realise that the management are a lot to blame. Maybe now the company is too big! What a shame another large British company has gone to the dogs. BEWARE not recommended Eddie ®ssssss12:02pm Fri 20 Jul
oh what's that I read about Eddie stobarts and whistleblowers. Well I would have thought a I I corporate group would have known better. Did you see that other case, Ross v stobart. Type it ineligible. there is also another case, some chap called moreman and a TUPE case..
Shocking really Isn't it.
Oh well have a nice day..
Hey did you know that when start work at 9am you can work till midnight.3times a week and then 13 hours for the next 4 days. wow you must be knackered..well you know they say it's a way of life.

Great programme! This programme got me and my wife into Eddie Spotting! We use the EddieSpotter iPhone app - 57 names so far! Eddie Fan1:09pm Thu 21 Jun
Money before people. Stobarts look all shinny and happy on tv but the truth of the matter is completely different. Money is the only factor. Workers welfare means nothing to this greedy company. The drivers depicted in this silly programme are nothing but lobotomised fools who would sell there own mothers for five minutes of fame. Mistreated hardworking driver4:21pm Thu 17 May
great. More more of the trucks and the men, Aiden Doody, Great guys, and nothing scares them. I would love to hear from you. brenda6:04am Sun 22 Apr
What about Elf & Safety? Regularly watch this programme with tongue in cheek and wonder if HSE watch it too. This weeks took the biscuit, sending Fiona out with a tail lift she did not know how to use, what about training. I know of prosecutions elsewhere for lack of training. As for load restraint, what a laugh, VOSA take note as its now in your brief.
Profession hauliers? more like professional cowboys! Real haulier now retired!9:07pm Sat 7 Apr
Decent programme all in all Ok we understand this is slightly poorly produced, but perhaps that was down to budget.
I love trucks and would like to be a trucker in a few years. The guys on this programme do a fab job and i have a lot of time for stobarts. look forward to the next ep. Mr Wannabe8:55pm Sun 18 Mar

IQ of a tree Best laugh ever! All the Daresbury managers rushing around trying to get the orders out. 4 foot tall Flm says we can't have slackers here got to get the job done. If you ever have the missfortune of working for this mickey mouse out fit watchout for the lazy little brain dead unpulumpa driscal. PS love the show! Ex stobart grafter2:05pm Fri 27 Jan
utter crap if people belive this is what stobarts is like this then they are sadly mistaken, this company treats its staff like dirt, all us driver that have been made redundant have not been paid correctly and had holidays deducted from our redundancy pay. people need to face facts, they have lost the tesco contract, a big chunk of coca cola has gone and william is leaving the company this year, so what does that tell you. stop worshiping this company and see it for what it really is. ex driver1:28pm Wed 11 Jan

crap company crap television programme stobart swatter6:07pm Sun 29 May
top company many people are jealous of what stobarts have achieved they make you sick baz9:57am Sat 28 May
Utter Nonsense There is no continuity in this programme, drivers stsart with Scania wagons are then seen driving Volvo wagons. Fiona trying to get traction in the snow with her mid lift axle down and not using the diff lock oh and then saying on camera "i've never used manual gear selection on this vehicle before"....utter lunacy. Not a good reflection for Stobart. Oh by the way these drivers were hand picked NOT to embarrass the company...hahahaha. Biomass.1:10pm Sun 16 Jan
Aaarghhh Having watched the real dangers faced by the Ice Road Truckers, I caught a bit of this idiocy. Oh no, someone will be late delivering pizzas to Peterborough...such drama! And as for the lorry spotters...sad, sad, sad. Proud Pagan5:06pm Thu 30 Dec
Thrills Galore Gripping I wonder who might be slightly late for a drop off and which road might have a bit of a hold up on it in this weeks thrilling installment. Who did Mr. Stobart pay for this hunk of advertising? FIX6:19pm Tue 28 Dec
False!!!!! Just cannot belive how false that programe is 1. Drivers get first dabs on truck names?? I dont think so! 2.Girly trucker comes off nights and goes on days and old boy goes out with her to make sure she can handle 3 drops in yorkshire?? would never happen! Gas stove in cab? told on induction that these are banned. Kids in cab? anybody else doing that would be sacked told on induction anybody who doesnt work 4 company not allowed in cab. Fuel bonus lol to quote 3.50 a day might not sound alot but its a whopping 1200 pound a year.....er really done my head in that we only work 47 weeks and even if you got it every day which nobody does its nowhere near that ammount.What about those sad people who went truckfest without being paid and spent the weekend polishing truck?? well all I can say is you must really do it for ur mrs and they must get so excited by you lol Realist!10:45am Wed 1 Dec
BeemerGuy Thanks mate ! Jim8:31pm Sun 28 Nov
Spelling I wish some people would check their spelling before posting. You can hardly slate truck drivers if you can't even spell yourselves. Big Red3:11pm Fri 22 Oct
Scumbarts Its all about the image, they don't give a monkeys toss about the drivers.The pressure that the drivers are put under by clueless planners with today's laws and traffic conditions is unbelieveable and all for crap pay.The only good thing about them is decent trucks to drive. A stressed ex employee1:22am Mon 18 Oct
@Chuck Aha, I will forgive you then ;) My hubby too was driving horse boxes (with race horses) at 14, so in reality has been driving since 1954 56 years!! But has only been on commercial wagons since he was 21. The best days have gone ... ... ... Dizzyhippy4:59pm Sat 16 Oct
Dizzyhippy They weren't so tight on regs back then. I was driving wagons for my old man's firm when I was 15. Chuck Anchayla2:34pm Sat 9 Oct
JT 61 and driving for 47 years?? So he started at 14 did he? I think they mean 37 years lol. My hubby is 70 this year and still trucking in his ACTUAL 49th year!!! Dizzyhippy11:08am Sat 9 Oct
