Successfully complete three deliveries for the "Darchelle Yzau" company from their vineyards in California. Sort by sender to find them. They have three vineyards close to Carlsbad, San Rafael, and Eureka.Easy "Final Makeover" achievement
This requires a lot of in-game money, which requires either a lot of time to save or pay a bank loan. You must own your own truck. The cheapest one costs approximately $120,000, but you should get one better than that. You will also need a three-truck garage, which is $180,000. You can earn the funds by completing deliveries or taking a loan from the bank. At the very start you cannot borrow more than $100,000, but after a few deliveries the bank will raise your credit limit to $500,000. When you have $180,000, you can upgrade your first garage or buy a new one, as both options are the same cost. Next, you will need $100,000 to upgrade your three-truck garage to a five-truck garage. You can save the game before taking the loan, upgrade your garage, unlock the "Final Makeover", then reload the saved game.Easy "Gold Fever" achievement
Deliver any cargo to the Coastline Mining company. They are east of Carson City and northwest of Elko. Damage to cargo, time of arrival, and fines en route do not matter. You can deliver the cargo with your own truck or take Quick Job, which is easier since you can take cargo from any city, and not the one you are currently at.Easy "High Five" achievement
Have at least Level 2 in the Long Distance skill to unlock 600+ mile offers. Since you have to deliver cargo on-time, take Standard delivery (one green arrow), and not Important (two blue arrows), or Urgent (three red arrows). Try sleeping and refueling just before taking your cargo in order to deliver it non-stop. Fourteen hours between rest stops is enough time to drive 600 miles. When you take the job, note the delivery window. Do not complete your delivery before the start of this window. If you arrive too early, stop somewhere and wait. Remember that time passes faster outside cities and companies. You also must deliver the cargo without any damage. Drive carefully by checking your mirrors, using turn signals, etc. You can damage your truck and bump or scratch the cargo slightly, as long as the damage meter in the Route Advisor still shows 0% trailer damage. The delivery also must be done without any fines. Enable the speed limit indication in Route Advisor and do not speed. You can also use Cruise Control to keep your speed in check. Do not hit any traffic; even if you are not fined you can damage your cargo and vice versa. Use your lights when it is dark. Do not ignore Weight Control. Do not run through red lights or drive the wrong way, as this will also be dangerous to your cargo. Be careful when turning right on a red light. If you make a mistake, you can be fined, as well as risk the chance of collision with oncoming traffic from your left. It is also recommended taking a job across the desert in Nevada at night to encounter significantly less traffic and police. The GPS shows the shortest route, but this may not be the fastest or the easiest one.Easy "Sea Dog" achievement
Deliver any cargo to Oakland Shippers because Oakland only has one destination and cannot be missed. Display the map and find the Port of San Francisco. Note: There is no label, but the icon resembles a bottle. It can be found west-southwest of Oakland in the southern part of urban San Francisco area. Use Quick Jobs and sort the offers per destination if an offer is about to expire. If you cannot find a suitable job, try again later or quick travel to another city in order to reset the job market offers.Steam achievements
