    I am not planning to profit much. If I have profits I am going to get more trucks to reduce taxes.

    Can you at least give me some tips on what to buy? They say FL semis break often but they have higher mpg.
     
    Rideandrepair and 77fib77 Thank this.

    I will invoice you a consulting fee and you can send me the money you’re planning on spending for a truck and trailer. It’s the simplest thing to do if all you want is a write off.

    If you’re planning to pull a flatbed then take a look at what the big companies run and do what they do. Or even better, just buy a used truck from TMC.

    Ah, a troll or someone terrible at math then, that narrows it down.

    Do whatever you want, flip voins, flip pancakes, clearly this isnt a real fact-finding mission

    The flatbed industry has way to many confused people already, buy a dry van or reefer trailer, that's where the big money is!!!

    really? I want to hire an experienced driver since I don’t have CDL. Is the maintenance similar to flat bed trailers?

    Now this is the type of attitude that keeps the auction houses in the black.
    Good Luck.
