New and Trying to Start Over
Hey Hotshoters
   I'm new to the forum (and a big thanks to Gary for this site. Well informed) and new to Texas but not to haulin.

The business has changed ALOT and I'm having no luck finding companies that hire under their authority other than these awful camper companies. Any help in the rigt direction would be greatly appreciated by me & my family.

MC # Question for a couple light loads
I have the same question. Someone has asked me to haul 2 cars out of state for them. I have my LLC established in AZ and I have my USDOT #. I am waiting on the bank to approve the loan for my equipment before I can buy my own truck and a trailer from Gary's connection in Texas.

20-20 Hindsight, if I knew then what I know now
First I would like to thank Danny and Gary for helping me out with an over night load, a there and back type of load. I would also like to thank them for giving lots of advice when things started to go wrong.... It all started when I bought 6 new tires for the truck, (the wear bars were showing bad) and I had to license and, pay tax on my new trailer. I had done run out of money but not out of time that I wanted to spend at home. I wanted to be back home for Easter weekend. So, with a call to Da ...
