Hey dude, the shooting myself in the foot crap is uncalled for!
The truck broke down, I had no choice but to take time.
Stuff came up that caused delays in the interm.
Your opinion is, well, your opinion. ..
Everyone's situation and perspective is different.
You're good, you were just stating your situation. Sometimes frustration builds and the posts get a little emotional. Always follow the advice of Unkle OVM, it's your business, run it how you want

Thank you, that's all I'm saying.
Attitudes and egos were never my favorite things to deal with.
Living a good Life and making a living in a way that does not have a negative effect on others has always been my goal.
Just a humble man trying to make a living and trying to make a better future.

Me thinks too much. Me thinks I am done here, at least for a while.

That's right. Ignore what you don't want to hear. You too can have a safe place. ROFLMAO

This place has taken a dive.

Wow.
If I had refused loads that paid less than 1.55 I would have been out of business within the first month.. .
Never saw that rate in a year with current company.
At some point, I hope to find a carrier that pays 1.55 for a box.
Wishful thinking?

I gave you a company. You chose not to even address that.

How do you run? Who gets you loads .If you have a Dispatch ,then tell him to get you better payloads. When I go the upper Midwest MI OH In IL Wi , I refuse loads that are not $1.75-$2.0 especially Chicago don't take any load less than 2.

Your carrier must be pocketing the difference and paying you 1.35

Do you pay a Dispatch fee

I have been working with someone who has their own authority and I now know I am getting ripped off and they are keeping most of the money I earn for them.
I'm done.
Load One or CM.
Neither one pays anything near what you describe but at least I can make a living.

Thanks, I haven't bought the sprinter yet, that's why I asked the question? I'm interested in finding the best truck or van to expedite in And the going rate per mile in Illinois. I don't plan on running more than 400 miles out of Chicago in any vehicle.
