2. When Buying A Trucking Company, Check The Size Of The Company… Is It A Small Or Large Trucking Company?

Is it a large or small trucking company? We have all heard the joke about size, does it matter? The honest answer is both: yes and no. Actually, depending on who you talk to the answer is not that simple. When buying a trucking company you need to consider what you are actually able to handle. After all there is a lot to consider. The established company has some things going for it and will be far more convenient than starting a trucking business from scratch.

Some of these considerations are the actual physical buildings, lots, service areas, warehouse, and/or anything else that was included when you’re buying a trucking company. There might also be an entire fleet of trucks and trailers at your disposal. Plus staff, everyone from drivers, dispatchers, human resources, administration, sales, janitorial, maintenance, and more. You might even have a full inventory of bulk supplies such as tires, mirrors, truck mattresses, or another important parts of truck equipment.

So as you can see, size really does matter. Know what your capabilities are before you consider buying a trucking company. This can mean both what you are physically able to do and what you financially can afford. It goes back to research; you must know your expenses (operational, stuff and drivers salaries, truck insurances, etc.).
