I am trying to get started haulin cattle for hire. I have moved my own for several years and are looking to offset my costs by takin a load or 2 a week, with the equipment i have now is that possible its an older 48x96 barrett and a 92 international eagle the rig is old but in real good shape, is it worth trying or is there just too many nicer rigs out there for me to have a chance thanks for the input and god bless.

do have a commercial insurance policy? That would be a big cost that might not make it worth it. your rig needs to be safe and dependable more then nice and shiney. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Insurance is the big factor. The question is: who is you insurance company and how far will you haul? With these two questions answered- you may just get a job or two to start. If your insurance doesn't cover what you want to do - trucking insurance isn't that expensive as long as you have a decent record. Let me know- and you may get a few jobs within the next few days or so. If you don't have the proper coverage I can point you to insurance companies who will help.

Thanks,

you need to check with your insurance provider to see if its a commercial policy. Also some policies are only good for x amount of miles away from your home base. You also need to know how much liability insurance you have. I think most common is a million dollars liability. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

You need 1 million liability and 100,000 Thousand Cargo and of course it needs to be commercial insurance. You might get away with 50,000 thousand but I would call sell barns and buyers before you switch.For D.O.T you need an apportioned plate and IFTA if you go long haul, but what you can do is just tell D.O.T that they are your cows.The only thing you will need is isurance. Hpoe this helps

telling the dot they are your cows to get away without paying plates and ifta doesnt work and opens a door wide open for rate cutters
