Owning and operating in any industry can be tough work but also offer multiple benefits. Both require an investment in time and money and must be done right in order to be successful.
Being a truck owner in the trucking industry means being responsible for the expenses of owning a truck, from insurance and fuel to repairs and maintenance. It means having more say in the decision about your truck and the company for which you use it.
Many team drivers are matched with someone based on their experience, personality and preferences. However, owner operators are able to choose who, if anyone, they want to ride with them. This includes a spouse, colleague or even a furry friend!
As you can see, prestige and flexibility are only a few of the advantages of being the owner of the truck. It’s important to remember, though, that it requires a substantial investment and commitment. You must remember to perform regular maintenance and repairs on your truck to ensure it’s able to carry the loads with which you’re tasked. Plus, you may have more limited availability to the insurance and benefits offered as a company driver.
When choosing to be a truck owner, a major decision you have to make it for which company you want to work. At VGT, our owner operators are treated as a business partners, and our combined experience of being drivers, freight specialists, dispatchers and brokers gives us the advantage over other similar companies.
