    So I have a buddy who wants to buy a truck and trailer and start a company and wants me to drive for him. He’s pretty well off financially so buying the truck and trailer and other things shouldn’t be an issue for him but what are some other things I should bring up to him about starting up

    The first question is this, why would he want to do this?

    the best rule is never work for family or freinds.

    Sounds like a disaster in the making, sorry seen the same scenario many times before.

    Tell him what you want paid, how much home time, and to let you know when it’s all ready to roll. lol.

    Don’t make his problems yours. Unless you are wanting to play truck owner on his dime. In that case if you don’t know what to say then maybe shouldn’t be playing truck owner. :)
     
    Bean Jr., Dino soar and TokyoJoe Thank this.
