    Hi all
    I have been looking for local jobs for very long. Local dealer just call me to offer me a car hualing job. They use smaller truck Hot shot style ( Ram 2500?) That can hual 4 to 6 car max. Will this count as an experince towards doing car hualing in the future ?. Id like to do it cause its a local job for the most part. Eventually in the future Id
    I like to do car hualing ( big rig 9 or 10 cars).
    Any thought and tip will help.

    Hot shot drivers will tell you to not do that. They don't want the competition.

    A Ram 2500 better not be hauling 4-6 cars, as it will be well over capacity. A job like that needs to be in a Ram 5500, and will still require a Class A CDL because there is no way to be under 26k/10k with 6 cars.
     
    Bo Hunt and Chinatown Thank this.

    Cassens trains for car hauling, but it's a company driver position. Hires right out of cdl school.
