      .80 a mile x average 2500-5000 a week.

      Do you know anybody personally at that carrier actually doing those miles ?
      Do you realize every week with a holiday is a potential bad week ?
      Do you realize your driver may take more time off than you’re comfortable with ?
      Or he just may take off.
      And every week without a holiday is a potential bad week ?

      Hoping you just found a better than average carrier.

      2500 for solo is good and 5000 for team is allright and by the way you are hijacking this thread.

      Hopefully you have a chunk of change set aside when that thingtakes a dive and gas is $4/gal.

      I've been a team so long I forget what solo has to offer, BUT, I think 2500 per week is way beyond good and difficult to achieve on a consistent basis??

      Plus, you build your business model off of conservative numbers on income and inflated numbers on expenses. Can you and a driver survive on 2000 mile per week average?

      2000 x 52 weeks is 104,000 per year.

      How many solos , excluding Mr 3000+ , got 104,000 paid miles last year ?
      I’d think less than 1/2.

      I had a driver that "worked" four weeks for me. Basically, she worked two weeks some short runs long enough to be done in maximum three days. Total gross was around $1100. She turned down numerous load offers, took days off, one it was for the stupidest reason I ever heard, I quote "I was just so overwhelmed about yesterday (when she turned down a 500 miles run after delivering a shortie - my note), I needed to calm down and clear my head". I still didn't want to fire her, yet she did quit few days later for not making enough money...
