We started out as company drivers but found ourselves frustrated. We felt it was time to grow to the next level. The next level would include risk. Fortunately everything in life is risk. We met a recruiter, Aaron, at Forward Air who linked us up with Expediters Services for a New Truck. Please do mention us if you inquire with them. We do get a bonus. We got on a program where we rent Expediter's truck for up to 3 months to prove we could handle a truck payment and make money without buyer remorse. Expediters was always so helpful and transparent with us. Once completing the program we became eligible to purchase a truck.
We needed to set up a business. We started working with Equinox Tax who became Trucker CFO when we started with Forward Air and Expediters. Once ready to create our owner operator business Trucker CFO helped us put together our LLC. Yes, there are debates whether leased on is an actual Owner Operator compared to Independent and most often its the independents complaining. We don't get involved with the debate. Instead we are OOIDA members. We let OOIDA speak for us and we just work on our business.
Clare has been so helpful for us. We met her and her husband on Tiktok and Instagram. She helped us get into hormone therapy. We let our health go a little more than we should have. Now we are changing things thank to her and her husbands help. We will blog our changes.
