Many commercial drivers enjoy life on the road. That being said, many want to have more time at home with their family so they start to think about how they can turn their love of driving into a better opportunity. One way to do that is by starting a fleet business.
Here are some reasons you may want to consider starting your own fleet business.
You can control your own business. When you own your own business, you can choose the trucks and trailers that you want to buy. You can hand-select the drivers that you want to work with. You can even choose what they are hauling and where they are going.
You can really watch your bottom line. When you have your own fleet, you have more control over your expenses and income. You will be the one to approve every expense that comes along. You also decide how much money you are going to make by the loads that you manage.
You don’t have to drive (unless you want to). You may be able to put your driving days behind you as you manage a fleet of vehicles unless you want to keep on trucking. You can keep yourself busy and get the income that you want, without getting behind the wheel. However, if you feel called to the open road, you can pick and choose when and where you want to go.
Many drivers become fleet business owners because they can be in charge of their own business. They choose the trucks, trailers, and drivers. They pick and choose what to haul and where they are going. They can even hop behind the wheel if they want to, or they can retire from driving completely!
