Here’s Why Owner Operators Thrive

Owner operators have the freedom of setting their own schedule and becoming business owners.

Trucking owner operators control everything relating to their trucking business. This includes vehicle maintenance, finances, surprise expenses and getting your name out there to clients.

Owning and operating your own trucking business can have many benefits, including setting your own schedule, choosing the specific products you want to haul, the pride of being a small business owner and how much money you can make in your career.

Even with the extra expenses of being an owner operator, you can still make double (or triple) what a company driver will make each year. Owner operators make much more than the average company truck driver, but keep in mind the other expenses that come with being a small business owner in the trucking industry.

If your tires are balding on your truck, you will be the one who pays to replace them. If your truck breaks down by the side of the road, the owner operator will be the person responsible with resolving the issue and getting back on schedule.
