Working as an owner operator is an option to consider if you are looking into a career as a truck driver. An owner operator position as opposed to a position working directing for a company has its benefits. Owner operator jobs carry the risks of owning a business. The purchase or lease of a truck is a significant financial investment. But greater financial and work benefits are also available as an owner operator. At Berger Allied Moving & Storage, we are ample owner operator opportunities for qualified drivers across the nation.
Some of the benefits of these positions include the following:
Freedom to Be Your Own Boss
You get to own your own truck. You can begin leasing to the carrier of your choice which provides a freedom you do not have working in a standard trucking position.
Greater Work Schedule Flexibility
You can pick your schedule and choose your jobs. You can determine how much time you want to work and schedule that time around other considerations such as family and health. This helps you achieve a better work/life balance. With owner operator jobs, you can choose routes that are close to family and friends in various parts of the nation or near some sights you want to see.
Having a Truck to Yourself
As an owner operator, you have sole access to your truck and are not subject to the mess a previous driver may have left over from the last trip. Each time you get into your rig, you know what to expect since you’re the only person driving it.
