    I have been an uber driver for a year and a half, and am looking into getting my own semi and 53' dry van to do uber freight because it looks like it can be profitable. Do the places load and unload the cargo for you? I have a neck injury and I can't do physical work. Also how many hours of cdl training do you need? A school near me has a 15 hour program, but I was told that most of the trucking companies want you to do 160. Does that matter or do I just need a cdl? Are there other companies you would recommend over uber freight? I looked into truck driving a while ago and wasn't really interested in signing my life away to go to school and be stuck working to pay back debts, but I am willing to just finance my own truck and drive

    I’ve been out here for two years straight driving pretty much nonstop. And I wouldn’t even fathom attempting to do what you’re trying to do. Before you can become an owner operator on any level you need to drive for at least several years for a company. You’ll get eaten alive and flush your money down the toilet if you don’t know what you’re doing
