    Default Need Help Getting Experience

    Hey guys, I'm interested in getting into the 1ton hotshot shipping field and was wondering if anyone can give me some ideas on where to start. I've looked into several companies but most are looking for drivers with a minimum of 2 years experience. I was wondering how can I get experience and how can I get into the field?
    Thanks
    Jesse.

    Are you looking to go as Owner Operator with your own truck or as a driver?

    Either really? I think it would also depend on where I could get in. Being in Texas I have easy access to the oilfields which I know are always looking for drivers but I've heard some serious up and down things about working there. I was thinking more freight or RV/Boat transport. Currently I have a truck that could handle the greater majority of boats and RVs (2012 F250 Diesel). If I were to go freight or even cars I'd have to more than likely upgrade to a dually and get my own trailer.
    I guess what I'm saying is at this point it'd probably be better/easier for me to get in as a driver but given the right job/chance I'd make the necessary moves and be an owner/operator.

    Most Owners are looking for a same household team...single driver making not enough money. For example in my fleet are driving only husband / wife teams
