    I started off running singles then deck drive-aways with truck movers back in 2014 and after 3 years they through me under the bus and I went back to singles in 2017 then got my own sCorp in 2018 and figured out that it was what I should've done from the start. I broke my own loads directly with my customers, I stole from other companies that were paying me .65-.75c per mile when they were getting $2-$3 per mile! Now I underbid those guys and get $1.75-$2 per mile plus travel up to $200 on each trip, even though I rarely use it for travel lol! I also negotiate $50-$75 per night for hotels and get it on most runs! All in all, owning your own is the only way to truly make the real money, hands down! I went from receiving a 1099 from companies for $150k a year to issuing my own to myself for $250k per year and since I'm tax exempt through my ancestry dna for being more than 18% Native American, I keep it 95% of it! :)

    You keep 95% because your dna is 18% Native American?

    You tell a good story. Very entertaining. Not much truth in it, though.

    We have a troll among us.
