Most companies assign you a truck and it sits at company termimal while you are off work. The companies that let you take the truck home either require you get approval for the place you will park the truck or give you either places to park it or tell you to find a place that is secure, such as self-storage, tow truck yard, or perhaps they have a customer in the area you will be leaving the truck.
In my opinion, taking the truck home is more trouble than it’s worth. I’d rather leave itvat company yard so maintenance can be done while I’m home instead of wasting unpaid hours on the road getting service.
If you can’t park the truck near home you need to commute from home to where the truck is parked.
It’s best to ask companies their policies on this. My last company had every truck parked the terminals. You could live in Spain or The North Pole, the truck was parked at the nearest company terminal. If you wanted to spend 2 days driving, in your car, to & from home knock yourself out.
This is why many companies have specific hiring areas.
