Hot Shot Hauling - How To?
Thinking of Help!! getting into auto tansport. what do i need.
To answer a few questions for you.
1. Can you do it part-time? NO, the insurance for hauling vehicles IS expensive, you can barely afford to do it full time.
2.Is there any money in it? If you have good contacts,maybe, otherwise, it's very a cutthroat business.
3. Can you do it with a 450 or 550, yes, but I'd go with a single axle semi, it will last longer, you can buy a decent one for 1/3 of what a decent 450 or 550 will cost you, plus it has a sleeper on it.
Also, every Tom, Dick and Harry, that loses their job thinks they buy a dually, 3 car trailer and make a killing, most don't last a year, plus, with everyone jumping in the business, plus battling illegal haulers, the prices are low.
