    Hey everyone I finally decided I want to open my own authority instead of leasing on to other companies. What freight companies offer power only, since I do not have a trailer and I can’t afford one at the moment, so if anyone has a good paying freight company that I can sign with that pays the best until I manage a trailer. Thank you everyone

    You mean like a company like Landstar with its own trailers but you bring your authority?

    Why not lease on for 6 months then buy a trailer.

    My friend is doing very well pulling Amazon trailers while he saves for his own.

    If you overpay for a trailer in a hot market, you should get the extra money back fairly quickly in the form of higher rates.
