    This is just a straight Lease Truck. Week of 9/7 had Service done on truck at Springfield took couple days, backed up bad at terminal shop, too many trucks. Don't come to Prime folks we have too many drivers and trucks now, ha.....
    Run mostly central and south, no northeast or northwest...
    Someone asked about Insurance, it is rolled into the Lease so ??

    Good #'s thanks for sharing. Your gross is doing fine your net is good and your cost control appears to be awsome. The freight market is booming to record highs IDK if you plan on investing anywhere but your best investment and the one you have the most control over is your own business. Buying the truck and paying it off as aggressively as possible may be something to strongly consider at this point.
     
    FullMetalJacket and TruckChicken Thank this.

    When you run less than 2000 miles your gross is decent but your net is terrible. Why is that?

    Are you seeing steady miles. I can almost pick out what weeks you went home or truck down. But some were just low. Was that due to prime not giving you miles? Or was that you not wanting to run?

    Yup, about every four weeks I take a few days off. When fixed costs are nearly $1,200 a week, add fuel, you really don't start making any bank till you go over $2,000 gross. You will also see loads that will cross over on pay cut off. That's one reason you need to average your pay out over the long run. You don't have much of any control on your loads, but they will keep you running. I turn down a lot of loads, which I know pisses them off. They will tell you it's the best they have, but almost every time the next load is much better. That is one reason you may see lower miles, but the rates are much better....
