Trucking And Agency Opportunities
My boat hauling business model includes an International 9700, 26900 GVW truck with a DT 466 and a 10ft sleeper pulling a 53ft, 4 axle custom made gooseneck boat trailer that also can haul cars and freight. There are two trailers I would own. For hotshots, like me, see www.BrowardTrailer.net or call Jim at Broward trailer at 954-491-0223.
My trailer is a 4 axle knock-off of a Broward. You should buy a 53 ft with car tracks for about $21,000. The only class 8 trailer I would use is a Waltron with a detachable gooseneck. A tandem 53 foot model is about $63,000. See www.waltrontrailers.com or call Bob at Waltron at 519-674-5489. Tell him I sent you. That flexibility is key.
Boat Hauling US has about 250 freight brokers including some auto brokers. I broker a lot of my own auto loads also. It’s all about keeping deadhead miles low and getting to your next boat haul. Work with me and Boat Hauling US LLC will get you loads. My standards are high and I would feel comfortable referring loads to you. If you are leased to a carrier, I would analyze that and would work with qualified truckers. I will personally qualify people with their own authority.
The equipment lease, the DOT authority and insurance would have to be current and in perfect order. Your job history and driving and claims history would be thoroughly analyzed. There are opportunities for dedicated truckers out there and I would like to talk to you. Call me, Sonny, at 651-426-0077. Thanks
