    Hello, I think I have the answer.
    By the way, I'm from Greenbrier, born and raised there, and moved to Las Vegas area.
    `
    Their best bet is to do line haul with a company like Estes Express, R&L Carriers, Old Dominion Freight Line.
    Won't be too long until they're making over $100K for driver each running teams with those companies.
    Some husband wife teams are making over $150K for each driver.
    `
    Estes Express has a terminal in Smyrna.

    Hello chinatown nice to meet you and thanks for the reply. So I guess the next thing is to get double or triple endorsements

    Also hazmat endorsement.
    Hazmat load can be something like a few pallets of paint; nothing to worry about.
     
    tscottme Thanks this.

    Good, they'll love those paychecks doing line haul driving. Between the two of them, they can bank well over $100K per year.
    Retire as millionaires.
