Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and new to the transportation business. I have a friend that has a 12 foot box truck sitting and he is willing to sell it to me at a very good price but I'm not sure if I can actually make money with it. I've been looking at box truck load videos online and find that most brokers and shippers want something bigger than a 12 foot box truck. I looked at a few Amazon Relay videos and it looks like they only go as low as 16 feet. Does anyone know if a 12 foot box truck can get booked for loads?

What year is the van/truck?
How many miles does it have?
What is it's weight carry capacity?
How clean is the van/truck over all?

The Tuck is a 2000 Ford F550 Powerstroke diesel with 150k miles. It can carry 10,000lbs. The truck is clean overall.

It might be good for same day delivery or multi stop loads.

Go take that truck to a scale at a truck stop and then subtract that number from the gvwr on the tag which will then give your true carry capacity.
