With the skyrocketing unemployment rates in the United States and the uncertainty of the economy, no one can truly say what is going to happen with American jobs. Although it is a risk to start your own business, there is literally no better time than the present.
Or perhaps you are retired and wish to tour the country and get paid while doing so and not use up all of your retirement funds.
If this is the case, hot shot hauling might be right up your alley. Especially if you already have a heavy duty pickup truck and trailer.
There are many different specialities and many different types of trailers for different types of loads but overall a 30 foot gooseneck type trailer will afford you the length and weight capacity to haul a lot of freight for both individuals and companies alike.
When a company has a part break or a machine go down, they will pay great to get it picked up and delivered as soon as possible to avoid production delays and many times these items will only use a small portion of your available space.
With all of the online auctions and Craigslist many people are selling large items that need to be transported long distances and the most effective way to get it done is to list their items on www.shiprightnow.com and allow transporters to competitively bid against one another in a reverse auction format for their business. This allows transporters to keep their trailers loaded with many different items while giving the individual shipper the best price.
As with any kind of business you will need to seriously look into all of the legalities and requirements to decide if it is for you. If so, we are glad to see You take charge of your life!
