30:55 QUESTION OF THE DAY: (please comment below this video)
Is it better to start a new car hauling business and get your own MC Authority OR to lease on to someone else’s authority while you learn and keep a portion of the gross revenue?
Will says the best hotshot trucking business advice he can give is:
Focus on your initial CAPITAL investment and the money to keep you going. He has a business partner (thank God) because he had no idea how much money this would take! And securing a trailer is tougher than you think! & getting a loan approved for the trailer requires a much higher credit score!
Obtaining an MC Authority is hard work! When you are new, brokers keep saying 90 days, 30 days, 120 days, or even 1 year before you can work for them! Plus, insurance starts draining you that first month, K first month, waiting for MC authority, and auto transport brokers with these longer MC authority waiting periods.
His recommendation: tell anybody new to look for someone established MC authority and run under them.
