Not just your town but pretty much every other town in the country. The trucking business is one of the most important and busiest in the country. This can be put down to logistics, from coast to coast. It cannot be possible nor is it practical to transport large shipments of goods via ship. Taking it by the truckload, coast to coast if necessary, turns out to be far more cost-effective and time conscious. And these days, there are many men and women still looking for work.
Maybe you are one of them. Have you considered doing this for a living? You must have, otherwise you would not be here reading this note. But here is news for you, particularly if you are still weighing up the cost implications of owning your own trucks and becoming self-employed. Instead of purchasing a first truck straight out, you could contemplate taking out a lease to own truck driving jobs. Not only are you still self-employed and running your own company, you are also opening the taps for other young men and women in your position, and perhaps worse off in the sense that they are in no position to own their own company right now.
Just because you are leasing your equipment or your commercial rights does not mean that you are not the owner of your company. The company that issues you with your lease permits defers the running of all operating equipment over to you. Of course, you will not be able to run such an operation as you please, especially not a trucking business. You will still need to abide by your county’s and state and federal laws in terms of ruling the roads. From coast to coast.
