    Expenses directly related to leasing on with ls or mercer.

    Personal bad habits and indulgences have nothing to do with business expenses.

    I believe you quoted anything other than loans or trailer expenses rentals,etc.

    Which interprets personal expenses.
    What other business expenses would a man have if excluded the truck loan an or trailer?

    No two guys will have the same hard numbers. The only constant is our Bob tail insurance. Is twenty bucks a month, so 67 cents per day. Then you have physical damage on truck and trailer, which if course varies by value of the units. Mine runs about a hundred a month so 3.33/day. Next would be plates and permits, which again varies. I don't work enough to get any performance discounts so I pay the full 2150 a year. Some guys only pay 800. We have multiple ways of passing for our plates and permits. One way is paying in full with a check or credit card, another is have them deduct it out of your settlements. If you choice to have them deduct it, they are rather aggressive with it. They spread it out over approximately two months worth of running. so figure a hundred bucks a load or so for six to eight weeks.

    No problem. If you get a trailer from them that will be another daily charge. Trailer prices have gone up since I got mine so I can't help ya with that. And of course it will vary by what trailer you get.

    Believe it or not I just recently acquired a smart phone and a tablet. The auto correct can make for a few interesting texts and forum replies if you don't keep an eye on it.
