I'm running mail loads here locally. I'm seeing ALOT of box trucks. Is this profitable? Is it easier to run? Do I need my own authority? Does Amazon pay well? Is it a ##### to get going and started?
Thanks for any insight
SHOULD I BUY A BOX TRUCK AND ATTEMPT TO RUN FOR AMAZON???

Maybe I'm new, but I don't see wtf is so funny? It's a simple question? Wheres the humor come in? Does it make sense to rent or.buy a box truck and run that way or not?

Have you done any research on what it's like to run for Amazon? Even here on this forum?bzinger, InTooDeep, LoneRanger and 1 other person Thank this.
All the felons on you tube are selling their box trucks maybe you can get a good deal. And get on making the box truck moneyJoeyJunk and Dubyadawg509 Thank this.
There are a lot of variables to your question. You have to map out a plan to what you want to accomplish. You have to see if running a box truck business with Amazon will produce what you need to be successful. All the best as you plan your journeyInTooDeep, TheLoadOut, Big Road Skateboard and 1 other person Thank this.

Buy 2. You can live in one and burn one for insurance money after you go broke hauling any Amazon freight.
But seriously. No. Don’t do it. And DO NOT listen to anyone on YouTube saying otherwise.Dubyadawg509, Kyle G., bzinger and 3 others Thank this.

If you can, talk to some Amazon drivers and find out how they got started and where they bought the trucks.
They won't spend too much time talking though, they like to keep the wheels turning.Dubyadawg509 Thanks this.
