Owner operators are always on the road for long periods of time. Constantly thinking about where their next load will take them while trying to make the most money they can for their family. There are a variety of small ways that the owner operator can save money in their business and here are just a few. One of the easiest ways to save money on fuel cost is to slow down on the road. Although it might take you a bit longer to get to your destination you will have better fuel efficiency in the long run. Owner operators need to maintain the truck equipment at all times. Taking time out of your schedule for the regular maintenance might seem like it takes away money in your pocket, but in the long run you don’t need your tractor trailer breaking down on the next long drive. Checking the oil, radiator and tire pressure regularly can save money by increasing your fuel economy. When owner operators plan out their route make sure to avoid busy highways at peak travel times in order to save time and increase your fuel economy. Lastly, make sure you shop your commercial truck insurance for a comparison to see if you are getting the best insurance coverage and rates for your business. Give J.E.B.
