Sample Heavy Motor Vehicle Operator Cover Letter

A heavy motor vehicle operator cover letter should focus on the applicant's ability to bend, lift, push, pull, and haul, as well as drive, since the work is very physical. Such jobs include operating large refrigeration trucks, fork lifts, cargo rigs and other heavy duty machinery. Operators must also be able to maintain the vehicle, check tires and fluid levels, fuel the rig, etc. And they must have a Commercial Driver's License. Therefore, heavy motor vehicle operator cover letters should mention all of the above, as shown in the following example.
