    Has anyone ran across a dispatching company that will advance Owner Operators their plate fee? Like you do the IRP process but they just front the money and basically give you an IOU. Are there any companies like that?

    Don’t know what they have, I don’t get it, you own the truck, buy the plate.

    Make sure they will loan you money for repairs, insurance and anything else you need.

    Yeah I have come across 2 guys (1 AZ and 1 OH) that were asking if we offered a plate program. I had only heard about a plate program when you work for a BIG company but not from dispatch companies.

    Not unheard of. Quite common, look at flatbed haulers out of the Chicago area, Ohio and East Coast, there are a few, just call any Recruiter.
