    I just saw a Rooms to Go trailer in Rock Hill, SC that had $120,000 for owner/operators posted on the side of the trailer. The truck did not have a sleeper so I am guessing these drivers are probably able to go home every night. Anyone know if this pay is legit?

    $120,000 for O/O's is the gross more than likely...That's very low!
    I consider it a bad year if I do less than $200,000.

    Rooms To Go wiggle wagons typically deliver to the stores, not customers. I don't think they have singles delivering with O/Os here in GA.

    just looked it up, I guess they do hire O/Os for delivery. They contract out to a different company

    Dryver, i'm not sure if your comment is directed at me or the op of this thread. i'm just supplying first hand info.

    but i would like to chime in on that comment, my Q would be how do You know that 120k+ would'nt be good money ?

    My analysis would be local deliveryies equals less fuel, you would have insurance thru R2go equal to fleet type pricing, that covers the 2 highest cost's assoc. w/ trucking.
    A O/O could find a laborer to help with unloading for 20k/year
    and he's home every night and has a social life outside of driving.
