I am looking for info on how to start hot shot hauling. I have done a little research and have somewhat of an idea, but don't want to miss anything or make unnecessary mistakes. I've rode with a hot shot car hauler for about a month last year and loved it, but unfortunately I lost his number and have no way to get into contact with him.
I do not want to get a class A, so I will have to stay under 26,000 lbs. for the next couple of years. I have been looking at hauling boats, RV's, and misc. trailers, I do not own a trailer yet, but as long as things go well I plan on purchasing one.
I know I have to be insured and be DOT certified. What I want to know is what else do I need to get inline before I start this adventure? What are the best places or websites to get loaded? What obstacles will I run into out of state vs. in state hauling? I don't use credit (Dave Ramsey fan), so how much overhead cash will I need to have before I start this?
I am 24, and have no family. I don't mind hard work, long hours, and sleeping in the back seat if necessary
until I can get on my feet. Any and all info would be great! Any other tips or tricks would be great!
