    I know this site is not for soliciting I could just use some advice on my next move I got my own truck and I’ve been an owner operator for a little over a year now and I’m doing OK the first company I work for I won’t mention any names we paid a buck 40 mile but it was expedited work and you sat more than you drove so I moved on to another company and was doing really well making a buck 65 a mile and it was all well and good till about three weeks ago when it supposed computer problem messed up everybody’s pay and I haven’t got a full paycheck or the money he owed me yet I think he might be going under so I’m out there looking and all I seem to come across is like $1.05 a mile lotta companies see 80% of the load 90% of the load but when I did backhauls that would still mean only $.90 a mile just wondering if somebody could throw me a few names of decent companies thanks

    Have you looked into leasing on with ... lets just say for S's and G's .... Landstar?!?!?

    Other than that, BEAT FEET and SOLICIT a contract OF YOUR OWN....... I'm not even an O/O but been doing 'this' (trucking thing) for almost 30 years.

    Do you own a trailer?!?!? What freight / commodities do you (will you) haul? Asphalt, for instance..is VERY lucrative in the warm months...yet, we don't know where you are located, so..... there's that. Heavy haul pays well; do you have any type of open deck??!?

    Or, are you just power only?

    If you seriously want serious replies, much more data is necessary. I'm not being snarky at all. Six of my BEST years driving were for an O/O. Divorce did him in, unfortunatey.

    Best to ya.

    any walmart parking lot. each time i go to any one of them, i can find at the very least up to $1.00 in loose change.

    but in all seriousness, i don;t have a real answer to your question. this covid crap shuttered a lot of places, some forever.

    i know when i ran as a company driver, and i'd be in the office at a former company, the gal getting us loads just took what she could, to get us out of the area, and they were not more than about 85¢ per mile back then, and i am talking about 1990's money.

    hopefully some o/o's will come here shortly to help you

    best of luck to you.

    Hay, even though I'm NOT an O/O, the questions (and debacles) I posed, are pretty poignant. Don'tcha think ?!?!? :(
