Owner operator – Is it worth it?
The owner operator has the potential to earn more money than a company driver. Usually, the owner operator gets paid for many of the extras, there can be significant tax advantage especially
when incorporated. As every business, the owner opearator has ups and downs. Let’s have a quick look:
As owner operator you can choose your own equipment, the truck owner has equipment that is best suited for his needs and comfort. You can be your own boss! The truck owner has more control over his job. He can have greater flexibility to take time off work. He can choose a heavier profile, better quality tire with better grip for example. As an owner operator you can sign up
with a dispatch service to assist you to find loads that meet your expectations. All of these opportunities come with risks and more responsibilities. For example, there could be a
financial risk. Purchasing a big rig can demand sizeable cash down payment, and then there are monthly equipment payments. The owner operator may have a more flexible schedule. However, a
substantial portion of the time off, can be spent doing maintenance and repair on your rig. Never ending responsibilities. It’s so important to pay attention to what’s going on in your businessf you don’t have the skills required, be sure to budget to hire the pros to help keep you in the profit zone.
