Summary

Feeling like your trucking career is hitting a dead end? Here’s how you can level up....

Have you been working as a truck driver for years with nothing to show for it?

Are you tired of answering to someone else, working long hours, spending days away from home...and only getting a small share of the profits?

Do you want to have more control over your time, more flexibility and independence, as well as a bigger cut of the profits?

Becoming an owner-operator may be your ticket out of dissatisfaction and the key to finally feeling fulfilled at work.

By starting your own trucking business, you can finally take charge - not only of your career, but of your personal life, too.

You can set your own schedules, choose your own loads, and charge your own rates.

You can even choose to bring your partner or spouse along for the ride, no permission needed.

However, striking out on your own also means being responsible for more than just driving.

As an owner-operator, getting clients, paying the bills, maintaining your truck, and everything else, will all fall on you. Which is why it’s so important that, if you want to get your business started on the right foot, you don’t go into it blindly.

The good news is that preparing for this exciting new chapter of your life is easier than you think.

All you need is the expert advice included in this clear-cut and easy-to-understand guide.

In Trucking Business Guide for Beginners, you will discover:

  • The most important decision you will make in your trucking business that could spell the difference between success and failure
  • What to watch out for when leasing or financing your truck - and how to avoid losing money before you’ve even started
  • How to start your own owner-operator company - from choosing and registering your business to getting your authority to operate
  • How to save on your taxes by taking advantages of these legal tax deductions
  • Why you shouldn’t accept just any customer you can get - and what type of client you should be looking for

Insightful!

Not all great truckers make good trucking business owner! I REAPEAT. Not all great truckers make good trucking business owner. The trucking business can be very profitable, but it is incredibly competitive. Many truckers try to get into the business every year and end up failing. This book is your guide on how to be a successful business owner and start your own operator company. The best part is it lays out the pitfalls to avoid to help you save time and prevent you from wasting $$$ resources. The book is well laid out and easy to follow. Really good resource for beginner.

Very interesting and informative

I lost my job due to the Covid situation and have been considering doing my HGV licence as there has been much publicity about the shortage of drivers. This was very interesting in the situation and has given me much more to think about.
