I absolutely love the people I work with in Midvale! They have been extremely helpful and pleasant and never make you feel stupid for all the many questions that come up from starting a new trucking company. They are all knowledgeable and lead you through the steps to keep you compliant with all the DOT, IRS and IFTA regulations. Thanks Tyler, Jaclyn, Liz, Tina and Haley!

My life is simpler because of Progressive Reporting Agency. They are experts at what they do so I don’t have to be.  Their entire organization is efficient, professional and a joy to work with.  I can’t imagine trying to run my business without them.

- Tyler P. – Vernal, UT

Working with Progressive for over the last 10 years has been great for our business. We are able to call and get a live person who is an expert in the area where we need assistance. That has helped us make good business decisions. The service is prompt and they are usually able to get complicated things handled quickly.

- Kathy – Las Vegas, NV

We want to say thank you for all the help you have given us over the last 8 years. You have helped us with our licensing, registration and permitting, which are complicated tasks we don’t have the time to dedicate to. Taking those tasks off our plate has allowed us to focus on growth, which is one of the reasons we have been able to grow from 1 truck to over 50 in less than 8 years.

- Corey W. – North Salt Lake, UT

We had an issue with our US DOT number that we tried to fix ourselves. After weeks of frustration and getting nowhere, we made one call to Progressive Reporting and the problem was solved within 2 hours. Now we have Progressive Reporting’s contact info in all of our trucks.
