What size trailer do you have?I'm getting out of the hauling business due to my job. I'm paying 150.00 for 20ft either full or 1 cow. Most trips are 20 miles.
I have a 20ft that I'm selling. I don't expect to haul cows for the next 10 years.What size trailer do you have?
Check your PMI have a 20ft that I'm selling. I don't expect to haul cows for the next 10 years.
No but I know that’s part of itHave you checked on your insurance cost
Your post made me laugh out loud!A couple years ago they changed my regular job schedule and I tossed around the idea of doing this. The thought of helping folks load cows and wait for that process told me that maybe this wasn't for me. Good luck to you! I think there's money in it if you work hard, but I'm fed up with people.
Loaded?Eastern TN the haulers charge 3.50 for a 28ft trailer. Was 2.50 6 weeks ago.
Yes only the loaded miles are charged for.Loaded?
That pretty cheap. Dont think I could beat that.Yes only the loaded miles are charged for.
I used Eastern TN because that's where the larger markets in this area are.
If your getting them hauled for that you better treat them good.That pretty cheap. Dont think I could beat that.
Our AB will send a trailer dirt cheap. Best I can figure they maybe split it 50/50 or some thing. Its like a dollar a mile or some thing. Most recent bill I have see was a couple months ago for 2, 32s... it was like $60. Place was 30-ish miles from barn. I can't put fuel in for that.
So your figuring 2.00+ on your equipmentInteresting thread.....pondering if I was going to haul cattle at the sale barn with just a small 6x16...nominally 2 to 4 bigger cows or 6 small ones....what would I charge? I would do a run for $100. minimum flat fee good for 1 to 30 miles max. anything over 30 miles would be $3. per mile extra. That said...who in here thinks that's a good rate? Would you use my small scale service?
$2./ mile won't pay for my equipment wear and tear...it has to be $3.
