    Are they doing hotshot loads? I guess I should say I'm running a hotshot truck. I have a lowboy flat deck. Can carry both freight or 2 vehicles. I sort of assume I'll be leaning on moving cars at the start due to it being a bit easier to get those loads as a new MC. However I want to do freight/equipment because it pays better in most cases

    I'm looking at dealing mostly with partials so I'm hoping that makes it a bit easier to get brokers to work with me being not as many guys with big rigs want to mess with partials.

    i have seen some partial loads with ch .but none with uber and convoy.i might be wrong because i haul a van.but those partials pay close to $1 to $1.2 a mile buy you should really be looking at specialty loads
    thats where the money is .

    Well, you run partials stacked.. so you run more than one at a time to get the money up per mile. That's the point of doing partials.

    I used to haul partials pretty often on both flat and step, I do not remember hauling any stackable ones.

    If I was rigged up and intended to haul cars, I would have a winch setup, it pays more when they do not run, and tractors too.

    Stacked was just a description for hauling multiple partials at once not meant to be taken literally.

    2 bottom feeder brokers on one truck is miserable.

    Bottom feeders love newbs though.

    Lots and lots of big rigs out here doing partials... Have you not seen any of the Chicago area Volvos lately? Seems to be what all of them are doing.
