    Expense Spreadsheet of 2010

    We are putting together an annual expense spreadsheet planning for worst case.

    The items...
    Fuel
    Insurance
    Plates
    Additional States
    Cell Phone (company phone)
    PMs
    Alignment
    Truck Wash



    Reserve Items...
    In Frame
    Clutch
    Tires

    Is there anything else that I am missing?

    Also if any O/Os wouldn't mind sharing their average annual expenses from last year or their forecast you can PM me if you'd like or simply post it. I would like to cross check our numbers to make sure we are in line with the industry.

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Boy...a Volvo and a Cabover....talk about opposite ends of the spectrum!

    You don't mention what you're pulling. Remember reefer fuel, tarps, tie-downs, load locks, etc.

    It is, isn't it?!

    I cannot take credit for the K-100... that was my friend's. As for the Volvo we sold that a couple of years ago, I pulled a 48' spread reefer. I am thinking of getting back into trucking, but this time staying away from the food world. I am wanting to start pulling drop decks again and we have the traps, chains, and straps in the equation. I should have listed it.

    I also guess for the guys wanting to get into the reefer business they should also account for pallets. Especially if they go into Wal-Mart And lumpers.. do not even get me started on that racket!

    Back on track, I have $600 for miscellaneous (Oil, Anti-Freeze, Lights, broken straps and so on)

    Medical and Workman's comp is not however, one truck and I'll be the driver. Insurance... isn't that a lovely Python around the necks of small business! All this while some thing $1.20 is a fair price per mile... never mind the $1.01 I came across last night!

    I do reefer and after riding around with 24 pallets in my truck, I took them out. I've not seen but a couple loads requiring pallet exchange. In fact, after I delivered a load a couple of weeks ago, I had an extra 16 pallets on board. I'm starting a collection.

    I did a Walmart run in '04 and that was the only time I used lumpers (had to) at a distribution center when I was a company driver.

    It seemed like every frozen load I hauled required pallet exchange and if I had non it was like $8 a pallet!!! Yet another racket in the trucking world.

    FWIW.. Wal-Mart does not give you pallets back anymore, they changed that in '05.
