    Dang those are expensive plates & insurance. I know you want to lease on to that company but you might look for another one.

    Folks......You guys got it right.

    Its a Business,Just like anything else-You need capital or a Loving family (lol)

    You wanna be a Mechanic? Well,15-20k in tools just to start
    You wanna be a Restaurant or Bar owner? Same thing 15-20k in startup costs

    Anytime you choose to start your own business that can become rewarding-Has a significant startup cost
    And Murphy's Law shall Prevail in your worst possible circumstances-Believe me.

    Fight through tough times-Work Hard-Don't Complain- And You'll Make Money here ......I Did Good,Many others on Here are doing well also

    The first year the mileage is normally estimated at the minimum. Alabama for all 48 states was a touch over $1300.00. Call your office and ask them they would rather tell you so you have everything then have you come in unprepared.
