Towing/hauling business.

Hey guys,

Iím considering the idea of hauling boats and/or cars as my next business venture.
Anyone out there already doing this? I could easily get my CDL along with either a rollback or F550 with gooseneck trailer that could accommodate cars or boats on trailers.
It would be east coast only, Maine to Florida.....car hauling could be just local from auction to dealer in the Philly area.
Any MC dealers or car dealers out there have input or suggestions for me?
Thanks in advance.

Might not be the exact info you're looking for, but these guys hauled my used boat from Chicago dealer to their lot in TN where I picked it up. Nothing fancy, just a few F350 Superduties designed to transport 2 boats/trailers.EDIT: They've added rollbacks for auto transport

We use Central Dispatch to post transport needs when our trucks a full. You'll find that doing the transport business the right way gets pretty pricy at first with the insurance, repairs, etc. Once you get it rolling it becomes a bit easier but it's hard to be the driver and the business guy without a little help.

I did this for extra income for a while from Action and Chicago MC. I found it to be great in the beginning, until U-ship came along. Tough to compete at that level of pricing and make any money. I gave it up for that reason.
