As the article states, be aware that you have to run under DOT regulation. Just to give you a little example of what I'm doing.
I haul luxury, exotic, collector, and tv/movie cars, my insurance for this year will cost me close to $9,000, that is for 1 truck and 2 trailers. DOT authority isn't too expensive but make sure you get everything you need.
I'm struggling to get by right now, I've started moving trailers for a local Ford/Featherlite dealer to help make ends meet.
Be aware of cheap freight and brokers who pay you in 30 days, starting out, waiting for a check for 30 days SUCKS.........
Also watch for cheap freight, I see some cars that people post for less than $.30 per mile to move. I get anywhere from $1.00 to $1.50 per mile, per car for enclosed transport.
