Owner Operator specializing in hauling cars - Success tips

by David
(cherry hill nj)

I'm presently leased on to the largest non union auto haul company in the United States. Was a company driver @ this same company for 5 yrs before switching over. They ACTUALLY helped me get financing!


My point? I'd been in the industry for many years, hauled cars for about 15 yrs. I LEARNED THE BUSINESS AND DEVELOPED A RELATIONSHIP WITH MANY TERMINAL MANAGERS, AS A COMPANY DRIVER, I DID 97k last year, as a o/o for three mo I've grossed (operative word) grossed 84k, averaging 28,30,27 per mo.

The ingredients for becoming a successful o/o LEARN THE BUSINESS, TRY TO EXCEL IN SPECIALIZED HAULING, HIRE A CPA AND DO YOU TAXES QUARTERLY, TAKE CARE OF YOUR EQUIPMENT AND KEEP CHRIST FIRST.
