    Don’t do It!! Plenty of work but there isn’t enough money in it.Everyone and there mother has a dump truck in south Florida.Don’t believe me,drive past the turnpike on Okeechobee Rd and stop by all the yards on the right hand side.My wife’s family has been in the business since the 80’s.The only reason they have maintained is because their main business is drainage and paving and even with that they sold four dump trucks last year.You would be the only one there with a brand new dump truck competing against fall apart trucks and garbage rates.

    Lol, your brand new dump truck would be stolen within 2 weeks in South Florida.

    Better buy one with a sleeper :)

    Since you're obviously filthy rich and can afford all the overpriced equipment and sky high insurance rates, you should totally do it. Great time to make some real money. Hope you can handle the competition.

    Yeah I wouldn't do it either. I am in the South Florida Market and it is saturated with all kinds of trucking and dump truck companies.
