    Bought my first 2016 international prostar truck fully paid cash at a good deal and i have title in hand. What is recommended I do next out of maryland before signing on to a carrier? Or does the carrier handle the rest with the plate program to be road ready?

    What exactly was your business plan before purchasing this truck?

    Your next step is to be accepted by a carrier and then follow their instructions.

    It's best if you have your own plate because if you decide to leave them for some reason it's a lot easier to go with your own plate.

    Aside from that you'll sign a contract then you get bob tail insurance and they will pay you percentage and the rest you workout with them.

    You are running under their Authority so they will tell you what you need to do to be legal and compliant under their MC and through their insurance company..

    Signing on the carrier makes sure your compliant. I have thought about my authority, but I'm lazy. Being a lease operator isn't so bad. But there are good and bad companies.


    what experience do you have?
