if you don't have the patience to go through the hoops to apply for grants I doubt you are ready to run or prepared to run a small trucking company.

Not trying to be funny.

Well, let me hold off on this.

When YOU say small are you talking one truck that you drive or a few trucks?

Even one trucking is a huge responsibility and can easily be stressful testing you on many fronts often.

If your talking, several trucks with drivers, forget about it. People don't really do things the way you would wan them to for the most part. You will be very lucky and blessed to find drivers who will drive and take care of the equipment like you would.

You would need to have those trucks making enough profit to pay them well and bring in money to the company.

I you are not familiar with all of this there is no way you should getting instructions from someone over the net and jumping into it.

Drive and talk to owner ops with several trucks until they chase you away. Ask for the mistakes they made and what they would do different.

If you don't already know about having your own authority, or leasing on with a company, you need to simply slow down.

If I am off based here, forgive me.

You also don't want to start anything like this dependent solely on funds. Plus I am right that you have no knowledge about trucking, no one smart is going to give you any money.

People need to believe you will be successful before they give you money. (I hope, that is if they learned their lesson from the recession)

So if your new to trucking, drive for a while, learn more about it first hand, save money, build credit, network with o/o and find out who their contacts are and start a small trucking co when you have cash and experience.

better chances for success
