There are a lot of ins and outs to prepare for to be successful with a small trucking company. Depending on how much help you are looking for, I would recommend having a business consultant in your corner to help you successfully prepare for and grow your business venture. If you decide to go that route, I'd be happy to provide you with details on what I can provide to your business venture.
If you are also starting up a business for the first time, I recommend you check out www.choosewhat.com as they have a free start-up checklist for small businesses. There is a lot more involved than just picking out a name and website.
As the title states I sam looking to start a small trucking company and I need help. I am pretty familiar with needing MC Authority and a few other things, but I am not sure as a new trucking fiorm if I will be able to get jobs/loads from the boards. I am in the process of starting to get the paperwork for MC Authority for 48 states and from the info I fpund it takes about 3 weeks to get it activated. I am also in the process of finding a starter truck and I have a couple of them narrowed down. I am hoping to speak with someone that knows the in and out of the logistics business and that also could recommend a trustworthy driver in my area. I have a fulltime job so I will not be driving the truck, but if this goes well then I may add another truck and get my CDL..
Thanks in advance for any help.
