    On the bright side they are both working great jobs so it should help support the trucking losses if the dedicate enough income for that purpose.. PS if you pick the wrong driver you risk losing everything you own in a accident. The protection you Think you have is not there .

    You guys are engineers - would you build a bridge based on information that you got off the internet?!!

    I just mentioned the liabilities, I know a few owners who have been sued personally, losing a lot of money - personal money - because it was their company. There are no protections when you are involved with an active revenue creation, you are on the hook for it.

    Imagine being that driver working for two guys without a clue :)

    What could possibly go wrong…

    $250k and I’ll set you right up with a trucking company.. I’ll even throw in 24 hours support for one day..free.

    This is the best reply yet on this forum. Maybe ever.

    I'm betting the guys who built the Key bridge might've gotten their engineering degrees on the internet. Worked out great for them.

    How do you end up with a Million from trucking....Start with TWO ! ! !

    Seriously, if you want to start something in trucking, the load [as you said it] comes first!

    I've scheduled, dispatched and delivered pleanty of 1,2,3 Kill Ya Quick that really didn't pay all that much more despite considerable investment in equipment, consumables, PPE and training.

    I watched that dedicated freight dwindle as the environmental concerns closed a bunch of producing facilities in the north east so the number of 'plums' available for picking whithered as well.

    Presidential election years ALLWAYS get slow so the carriers are doing everthing to keep their good drivers even housecleaning some of the headaches.

    Spend a year or so looking for the potential base business and sell it first.
