Car hauling is greatly different from other types of trucking jobs. Hauling cars is also known as auto transport You might go to a company that specializes within auto transport spectrum. Some trucking companies only haul new cars. Some many only haul used. Some car haulers may have direct contracts with dealerships and/or manufactures or auction houses. And some do whatever car hauling there is to be done.
How about NASCAR, you've seen those trucks profiling down the highways.Nascar car haulersfor example...sounds like a dream job for some guys even without the extra pay and benefits.
Sorry, everybody can't be a NASCAR or Race Car Hauler but if you keep your record clean and keep your eyes and ears open maybe you will get lucky!
For any high profile job like that you need an excellent record and it helps to know people because as you can imagine everyone wants the job. Back to earth
There are other types of car hauling truck driving jobs available also. As stated earlier may end up at a car transport company that combines it car hauling services under one roof.

You will also see dually hauling cars with gooseneck trailers. These are used often for hotshot car transport. Sometimes because the volume of cars for the parties involved just doesn't warrant a tractor. Of course their may be other reason too, who knows.
You can also make decent money usually a dually as a hot shoot. Just as much as driving a truck actually. I would do a lot of research into going out and buying equipment to start your own car hauling business though, don't forget the economy.
The pay is higher for car hauler because there is more responsibility and attention to detail required than pulling a dry van. Car haulers driver make good money, especially owner operators.
