    I've been considering buying for a year now. I've been driving for 26 years. I worked in auto transport 20 years ago, but things have changed a lot since then. I have done a ton of research on my costs. I plan on getting my own authority and a semi. My question is what can you reasonably gross in a month? Looking for low end estimates as well as high end. I'm located in Florida. Thank you

    I agree with what pavrom said.
    I have a revenue target of $5k/wk. I generally pull in $7500-$8k/wk pulling dry van. I don't do any north east, Florida or west of I35. However, that revenue is always subject to change. I own my truck and owe $2500 on trailer and I'm leased onto a small mom & pop.
     
    Informme Thanks this.

    If a person can make 7/8k / wk pulling dry van, why would you want to haul cars?

    I have guys doing $30,000 a month in revenue being home most nights. And I have seen guys average just around $60,000.
