    Anyone hauled this DG stuff where you unload the trailer with rolltainers? Said the day rate is 1000$ up to 500 mile round trip. Start and stop at DC Is it Worth it?

    I appreciate the info. Sounds like it’s ########. I knew it wouldn’t be easy getting big trailers in a lot of places. But if it isn’t really a daily rate an #### me, I’d take their #### as collateral. I was under impression that when I got there I’d roll that #### off and let them deal with it after that? Oh well. It is what it is. I’ll stick with flatbed

    Did it for a couple of weeks and its not worth it. Yes you make more $ but its still not worth it.

    How much gas would that 500 mile trip take up? If you could really do it daily and gas is less than $200-300 a day I’d do it lol. $4200-4800 a week guaranteed after expenses, and a short distance so not much wear and tear.

    Too much work and aggravation for such little money vs time invested. My day rate varies between 1250-1400 so that broker is already lowballing IMO. There's much better ways to generate a higher amount of revenue per day. I'd laugh at him and hang up the phone.

    You’d literally burn no gas, so you’d have way more profit. You should buy a truck and do it.

    None. That’s why I said I’d do it. I can go buy one and use this account to build. Seems like steady money for a startup.
