Everything is ready to go. Truck & trailer properly inspected, check. Driver history paperwork all complete, check. Company paperwork, MC Authority, Insurance, and the multitude of other stuff, check.
And now the hunt for work begins…
I thought I had a well-paying load set up this morning, but they called back and said the customer didn’t want a hot shot rig. Bummer. But that’s ok, I’ll find something if it’s the last thing I do.
I foresaw some of the problems and in order to get around them, spent the past 2 days working on a packet to send out to local businesses and industries. I sent out 30-ish flyers and a lot of business cards in the hopes that I can score some local work.
Hopefully this will at least garner me some calls and some interest. If I can talk to them I think I can sell it.
A note on patience… I don’t naturally have much, but this type of endeavor is certainly forcing me to develop some.
Anyway, I’m ready to roll if only I can find something to roll with! 😀
