I think this is what is keeping from my 800-1000 a day gross right now. I can't belive I've never thought of this. I feel soo freaking stupid. Like today I have a run that takes 12 hrs and I gross $600 by myself and if I take help I can do it in 8. Now I own 2 trucks, and what not, soon to be three. I figure I have to make $308 a day solo to break even. $450 with 2 guys. Now by myself I can gross $400-500 easy, but if I run with another guy I can only gross $600ish. If I ran another truck I should see gross in the $700's and my cost would go up to around $500 in a 10 hour day. My company profit would be $200 a day if I considered myself an employee and payed myself $15 a hour.
