Guide to Starting a Trucking Company

Bill Hood · July 16, 2023


If you’re here, it’s likely because you’re looking to start a trucking company – And you’re in the right place!

Over the past five years, we’ve helped hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs just like you turn their trucking company dreams into reality. We’ve had countless conversations, and a common thread is wanting to “get their authority”.

If that’s your focus right now, you can head right to that section. However, if you’re looking to wholly start a trucking company – complete with all the permits, compliance, filings, and preparations for your new entrant audit BEFORE you hit the road, then stick with us through this course. We’re also offering free membership in our Mastermind group and free calls with our team to answer any questions you may have.

Unique Offer

But first, a unique offer – a unique challenge. For years, we’ve stated our desire to gift our knowledge, helping people avoid business-ending mistakes. According to FMCSA, over 30% of new authorities contain errors, imagine the complexity of driver files, drug testing, and permitting! Our passion is to set you up for success.

We’ve decided to offer something we’ve traditionally charged $1300-$1500, for just $599.

This isn’t just ‘plus costs’; this comprehensive setup for 1 truck/1 driver includes:

  • US DOT,
  • MC,
  • BOC-3,
  • UCR,
  • Clearinghouse,
  • drug consortium,
  • pre-employment drug test,
  • process driver files,
  • managed driver files,
  • MVR,
  • review IRP & IFTA applications,
  • and all partner discount programs.

The only added costs include:

  • insurance,
  • plates (IRP),
  • IFTA permit,
  • ELD,
  • decals,
  • permit book,
  • LLC or Corporation (we can do this for you).

A Bit About Us

In 2010, we started our trucking company, aiming to run solely on spot market freight. Despite criticism, my theory of a market that allowed Owner-Operators to book their freight was realized. I am now fondly known as the Godfather of Self-Dispatch.

Fast forward to 2016, following many ups and downs, awards, and growth to over 80 trucks, we sold our company. We then used our experience to help distressed trucking and brokerages recover by putting various systems in place.

This journey led us to audit and compliance services, and eventually, the birth of a passionate dream – to train people and share our knowledge freely with those planning to start trucking companies. The aim is to support you every step of the way and equip you with the right knowledge to avoid costly mistakes from the inception of your business.

So, let’s get started with the course. Here’s to turning your dream into an effective, compliant, and successful reality!
