Having a tax specialist who is familiar with trucking and life as a trucker and a trucking company business is also highly advised for best results.My advice is drive 1 year company driver first and learn all that you can. This is Casey an owner operator out of North Carolina.
You might find your monthly truck notes are cut in half or better. Plus, I was blessed to buy a good truck and lease to a good company.
Their greatest benefit is more freedom, not necessarily more money unless they are business savvy, conservative and forward thinking....
AND working with the right trucking companies, brokers, load boards etc.
You are buying your truck not leasing it from that carrier, in this scenario I am covering.
Buying your truck is the best deal if you can do it.
If customers can't get their freight on time and experience good services, they will choose another carrier.
Some drivers contribute to the carriers poor reputation then complain about low freight pay and slow freight. It is a shock to some new O/O's that you still are expected to do some things that you might not want to do or go some places that you don't want to go at some companies that you lease on to. Many without their own authority, don't make much more money than an experienced company drivers at the end of the year after expenses and taxes are paid.That's why they take from 10 to 30 percent of what the load pays and pay you the rest.Plus you don't have to wait on your money from the customer.Many people that fail as an O/O, do so either because they are leased on to or do business with poor quality companies, lack vision, or don't see their operation as a legitimate business. Also, becoming an owner operator doesn't mean all of a sudden it's your world, you call all the shots and no one else matters.You still need to have a positive attitude and realize that everyone is part of a team to get the job done if you want to make money.Hard to say, you must ask yourself that, based on what you have learned and what you already know and the type of person you are. I have met drivers who started off driving as an owner operators.
