Hey. i'm seriously thinking about getting a cube and getting a job at some sort of a delivery company as a way to get out of my detailing job at Ford( ) and finally start making money to move out comfortably.
Anybody with experience being owner/operator?If so
What kind of money is out there to be made putting in roughly 40 hours a week?
Also what kind of money usually would be spent on fuel,insurance and maintenence monthly or so.
What kind of schedules are normal in the business?
1-Ton vs 5-Ton trucks, what are the pros and cons other than the obvious( 5 ton more expensive, not as easy to drive,more expensive maintenence)
Any preffered make/model? I was thinking a generic early-mid 90's Ford E350 1-ton with a 5.8 V8 gas. powerstroke would be nice but concerned about maintenence/repair cost of something does go wrong.
Also, do the companies that hire usually care about the size of the cube(length and height)?
