Publisher's Summary

Contrary to popular belief, there is more than one way to be a trucker and build your own business. Welcome to the world of hotshot trucking!

Hotshot trucking is a great way to start your own business without all the cost and regulations of a big rig trucking company. You get to set your own routes and hours, run your own show, and give yourself the money and flexibility you desire.

This audiobook covers all you’ll need to know to buy your own truck and trailer rig, and get out there and start making money. From the basics of how the industry works, this will help take you through buying your first truck and trailer. Breaking down all the options and extras, so you can make an informed choice about your rig.

You’ll learn all the tools of the trade and the equipment you will need to move your loads. Straps, chains, ropes, ramps - you name it! What to look for, how to find it, and where to shop. Plus, a section with maintenance tips on trucks, trailer, and gear! Everything that you are going to need to get that load to its new home.

All the information you’ll need on what licensing and documents you’ll be required to obtain and how and where to file are covered. We go over how to open a business. Do you need an LLC? Office space? Plus, we provide information on how to figure out your costs and budget for your business.

But, how do you find your loads? It’s all explained here as the audiobook opens up the world of the load boards where hotshot truckers find their loads and bid for their next gig. You’ll learn how to figure out how much to charge, how to bid properly, plus the other features these sites offer. You’ll learn to take advantage of other opportunities to network and advertise your services, so you can get every possible load with sections on advertising, social media, mailing, and more.

You’ll get a peek on the road with topics on health, exercise, entertainment, and ways to stay in top mental and physical condition while driving. And what do in the case of accident, breakdown, injury, or many other situations.

The audiobook also addresses numerous mistakes made by owner-operators that can lead to the downfall of their business. Now, you can learn from their mistakes and ensure the future of your company. Also included is a glossary of hotshot and trucking industry terms, so you’ll be in the know.

When you complete this audiobook, you’ll have all the information to go out and start your own hotshot trucking company. You’ll be able to enjoy the freedom, variety, potential, and fun of this high-growth industry!

Bland, General, Common Sense

This book was essentially zero help. It's full of common sense items that anyone who's seriously considering a business would already know. Things like: "When on the road, some of the big name fast food places offer salads or fresh options, choose those when able" or "If your truck is giving you problems, pull over or look for a runaway lane." or "Bring a mechanic, or request a carfax when buying used" Nothing in terms of benefits to goosenecks or 5th wheel options, viability of standard trailers, how a dually may be beneficial or detrimental, running through the day in a life, what paperwork changes hands at a pickup / drop off. DOT regulations, licensing. The narrator may as well have been telling a bedtime story as well. I've never been so compelled to write a poor review in all my years with audible.
