The reason questions like yours get sarcastic responses is because we get 30 basic questions a day and every one if them has been answered a bajillion times. 10 minutes of searching this or any other trucking site would of answered every one of them. So when we see a post about a basic part of owning a truck it looks like 1 more guy looking to jump into the industry without the motivation to do their own research. Maybe that’s not your intent but it is how you (and the others) come off.
And that doesn’t even touch on the fact that you are the future competition. Asking us to give you info is like me walking into the local pizza hut and telling the owner I want to open a pizza restaurant next door. Surely he won’t mind helping me get it up and running, right?
