If I were paying for everything I would not have taken the deal he offered me because that would add expenses and take me off of my downsize plan. I like expediting but it is not the only reason I agreed to buying it. I have personal plans for the van that factored in to the agreement. Based off business ideas I realize I dont want to own equipment. But that is just me. Just being the driver is less headaches for sure and going owner operator would have to be up to you and what you want to accomplish.I was wondering if it would be better to be an owner operator or just a driver. Now I’m obligated to run where the loads are and get back to hometown periodically. The current owner is extremely new to expediting and doesn’t know much. She is hooked up with a carrier for my van and her 2nd van she is finding the loads for that driver. If I had my own van, I could have a bit more flexible schedule without worrying about expectations of an owner. Thoughts.
