Want to hire a licensed CDL operator to move a 34,000 truck (CDL required) on a hour by hour basis.

Basically, drive the truck 30 miles+/-... Charge me whatever is fair for an hour of your time. The job is done.

I will call you 3-4 days later to drive it back. Charge me whatever is fair for an hour of your time. The job is done.

Highly flexible on my end (assuming you are a full time driver for someone else).

---------------------------

What would be a fair cash wage to pay?


If you are not actively engaging EVERY enemy you encounter... you are allowing another to fight for you... and that is cowardice... plain and simple.

Driver has to show up for a 1 hour job twice? That is a lot of his time traveling. Easily $150 or more for that 1 hour of work times two (min $300).

How is the driver supposed to get back and forth between trips?

I don’t know about 1 hour, but I was just quoted $4k to haul a small boat and trailer (19’ , dual axle trailer. Maybe 4000#’s total) 950 miles on a flatbed.

Another guy quoted $1800 to pull it on its own trailer.

Who supplies the truck? If you, this is much easier. Is the truck ELD exempt? WAY easier. Any load securement need to be done? Is it a box truck, van truck or flatbed? Tanker?

Assuming it's your truck on paper logs and that 30 miles is the true:

Assuming I can legally make it work HOS wise split between your move and my W2 job - I'd do it for 75 an hour cash, port to port, if paper logs, if ELD then I'd want more as that's a more robust record of my time and how I must account for it.

If it's my truck/trailer but the 30 miles etc all remains the same - I don't move the truck for less than 500 each way just because I need 1200 to the truck each day to feel good about ROI. And while it might only be 1 hour move, it's going to end up 3 on the logs with DH there, PTI, travel and PTI/Drop and DH to my next load.

How many breaks does a driver need during a 30 mile run?

$2.00 a mile? That's reasonable.

It's a gift! National flatbed rate out of SC right now for flatbed is 2.49 a mile. Saving 500 off national average.

Fair question...

It is a 10 ton crane that a friend is trying to hire out for local contractors to set trusses etc.. Most jobs will be in the same county so less than 20 miles on average.

It is a solid truck with valid insurance/inspections etc.

The owner of the truck will operate the crane once the crane is on private property... so delivery of the truck to the job site is all that is needed of the CDL driver.

Truck will sit there 2-3 days (or whatever) and then be driven back to the yard (or the next job).

Someone will drive the driver back to the yard... or chase him in the driver's truck.

Not all that complicated IMHO.

Easy truck to drive... it is just over the non-CDL limit and not worth the VDOT drama if someone not legal is driving.

Ahh - so the driver is just driving. That's easy. Like I said, I'd personally do it for 75 an hour, port to port cash but others will ask for quite a bit more. Gravy run.

If.
I was close, I liked you, it was at my convenience, and it was no more time than you say…I’d be fine with $50-75 in my pocket. CDL off books is fraught with peril. I’d much prefer to be paid on the books, no 1099 crap. Ie. while I’d take care of your equipment and be safe, I don’t want to assume any extra liability.




To hire a guy who is looking for work, it’s likely gonna be more. Be aware, guys with CDLs looking for that kind of gig are often suspect. You are entering very dangerous waters, there are a lot of things involved in hiring a driver as your employee. Physical, drug test, random drug test pool, driving history, insurance. You might be better off hiring a truck. All the more you need a driver, you will have close to as much in having him,as in using him. Plus cost of the equipment

The $1800 does sound reasonable. I can’t guarantee the condition of the trailer though. Pretty sure it’s sat for quite a few years. That’s why I got a quote for having the boat and trailer hauled on a flat bed. $4k is just too much. I’m headed to NH on Thursday to pick it up and drag it back.

CIK- I’m guessing your into it $300 per trip.

Have a friend who is retired but still has his CDL. He spots equipment for a guy with several bulldozers, track loaders, etc. Similar situation to yours. Thought you might look for someone recently retired as it would be extra income for them.
