    Agree.
    If you do, make sure the box is dock height. U-haul trucks are not dock height; don't buy one.

    You’ll have no choice :)

    Seriously, what’s your business plan?

    How’s anyone going to give you an answer without any details.

    Buying a box truck and working 15 hours a day doesn’t guarantee you that you’ll make any money.

    Did you stumble across a solid shipper that’ll keep you busy while making $10,000k per day? If so then heck yeah, I’ll even loan you the money for a generous cut!

    If you’re just going to buy the truck and then try figuring something out then that’ll be a fluff No!

    Work for whom? Where do you expect to get your loads from? Have you calculated your expenses, and how much work you'd have to win, at what kind of rates, to succeed at this?
