Owner-Operator Trucking Jobs

There are many advantages to a driving career as an owner-operator. You can make a great living all while being your own boss. Many owner-operators are contracted by larger trucking companies and have been known to make quite a bit more per mile than conventional company drivers. Successful owner-operators often go on to acquire additional trucks and hire drivers to operate their fleet. It is important to be prepared and know what to expect if you want to have success as an owner-operator.

Typically owner-operators are responsible for all expenses involved in operating a truck. This can include all maintenance, repairs, fuel, insurance, taxes, and more. Most owner-operators also have to pay for their own health and dental insurance as well, although, some companies contracting to the owner-operator will share in the costs. Owner-operators are also responsible for ensuring their trucks are in compliance with all DOT regulations. Owner-operators are on the road for long periods of time trying to maximize the amount of money they can make. Although there are many more responsibilities for an owner operator, it can be a very fruitful career choice if done the right way.
