Transitioning to the role of owner-operator can feel stressful for many people. One of our key missions is to reduce your stress by taking care of your registration. Package #3 will secure you with a new MC Number, BOC-3, and US DOT registration. But that’s not all. It also takes care of UCR registration. (UCR stands for Unified Carrier Registration.)

All these FMCSA registration forms are crucial for transitioning to owner-operator status. Are you struggling with understanding how to start a trucking company? If you are, please call Moving Authority at any time. Our trucking experts can give you the help that you need to succeed.

Package #3 Will Secure Crucial Registration for Starting a Trucking Business

Trucking companies must complete FMCSA registration, per the US federal government. That’s where Moving Authority’s Package #3 comes into play. It will help your new trucking company secure everything you need. This way, you can open your new trucking business ASAP. No matter your state, we can help you get your business started.

As an owner-operator, you can’t afford to waste time struggling to file documents. That’s why new business after new business in every state turns to us. We have a reputation for helping any trucking company succeed. (Whether a new company or big-time truck company.) Read below to see the important FMCSA registration that Package #3 knocks out.

Start a Trucking Company With a US DOT Number

The FMCSA enforces that any trucking company must secure a US DOT Number when starting out. It does not matter which state you operate in. The number identifies every business when conducting investigations and audits. Plus, you’ll need to have a US DOT Number when standard inspections take place.

(This applies at both the state and federal level.) If you're starting a trucking business, a USDOT Number is a must-have. And Package #3 can secure that number for your business right now.

You Must Have an MC Number To Start a Trucking Business

Having an MC Number matters when you start a trucking company. MC stands for Motor Carrier Operating Authority. You might have to get more than one MC Number for your new business. That depends on the specifics of your trucking business operations. (Also take state laws into account.) We will provide your business with an MC Number ASAP, per Package #3.

Do You Need IRP Credentials & an IFTA Fuel Decal on a Truck?

IRP refers to the International Registration Plan. IFTA is an abbreviation of International Fuel Tax Agreement. Any trucking business providing services across more than one state needs these. The IFTA decal goes on every truck at your new trucking company. Package #3 will does not help a business secure IRP and IFTA decals.

But packages #4 and #5 will help your truck business get them. Speaking of other packages, let us know about your ELD tracking needs. Sometimes we can add ELD tracking services to our freight vehicle packages.

It is crucial that every carrier and driver get IFTA fuel tax registration. So why does having IFTA fuel tax registration help every driver? First of all, fuel tax registration ensures FMCSA and DOT compliance.

Plus, IFTA fuel tax registration helps carriers with factoring costs for tax season. The last thing you want to do is not report the right fuel tax information to the government. If you need to learn more about fuel taxes, call us at any time. Our mission is to ensure that customers follow all vehicle and fuel policies.

Is Starting a Trucking Company Profitable?

Yes, the trucking business is very profitable. At least, for the majority of owner operators. Even the average truck driver can learn to make a lot of money. But it is a very competitive business industry. Many truckers try to get involved in the business every year. Many of these truck business professionals fail. Do not despair.

How Much Do Trucking Company Owners Make?

Many truck owner operators (and each driver) take home a lot of money. A trucking business can generate about $2,000 to $7,000+ each week. Meanwhile, a trucking business investor can profit about $500 to $3,000+.

(That’s on a per truck weekly basis.) Many factors affect how much trucking business owners profit. Average market rates and expense values vary each week for a business. The profit margin also depends on a trucking company owner’s type of operations. Do you have questions about how a vehicle driver can make more money? If so, call us at any time. Our mission is to help every truck driver make more money.

How Do I Start a Trucking Business With One Truck?

Do you want to create a trucking company using one truck at your business? If that’s what you want to start doing, it’s not uncommon. After all, the fewer trucks you have, the less liability you have. Here are some steps to consider doing at the beginning of forming a new business. First, start off by filling out trucking company forms. This way, your business can apply for trucking authority.

Next, find a liability process agent for UCR registration. Once you do that, you can start securing truck liability insurance at a great rate. Then, with the right liability, you can lease or buy trucks for your trucking company. The next step is to choose trailer equipment that truck drivers need. The last step is to complete an IRP for your trucking business. That stands for International Registration Plan.

How Much Do Truck Loads Pay?

The freight rates for truckloads can change every day. So, let’s do a trucking business industry average. It’s about $1.25 to $3.75 for each mile a truck drives. Many different things can increase or decrease the payment total.
These include the weight, number of drops, and form of trailer or equipment. Each trucking company has to figure out fees, schedules, routes, and rates. Do not despair if you don't meet business goals fast. Keep working hard and you’ll start to see first-rate business results.

I purchased an excellent package from Moving Authority. Starting a Trucking Company package turned out to be the perfect product for me, as I had a couple of trucks and decided to take the next step and start my own company. The attention I received was exceptional, and they resolved everything very quickly.

Starting a Trucking Company was very simple. I called Moving Authority, and they helped me secure my FMCSA registration. Thankfully I made the transition from operator to owner. These guys are really professional.

Fredrick Wilmoth


I designed a whole trucking business plan for my new company, but still, I needed some expert advice, just to make sure. Luckily I called Moving Authority, and they were willing to help me. I appreciate that indeed.

In 1895 Karl Benz designed and built the first truck in history by using the internal combustion engine. Later that year some of Benz's trucks gave into modernization and went on to become the first bus by the Netphener. This would be the first motor bus company in history. Hardly a year later, in 1986, another internal combustion engine truck was built by a man named Gottlieb Daimler. As people began to catch on, other companies, such as Peugeot, Renault, and Bussing, also built their own versions. In 1899, the first truck in the United States was built by Autocar and was available with two optional horsepower motors, 5 or 8.

The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

Trucks of the era mostly used two-cylinder engines and had a carrying capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 kilograms (3,300 to 4,400 lb). In 1904, 700 heavy trucks were built in the United States, 1000 in 1907, 6000 in 1910, and 25000 in 1914. A Benz truck modified by Netphener company (1895)

The Federal Bridge Law handles relations between the gross weight of the truck, the number of axles, and the spacing between them. This is how they determine is the truck can be on the Interstate Highway system. Each state gets to decide the maximum, under the Federal Bridge Law. They determine by vehicle in combination with axle weight on state and local roads

“Writer-director James Mottern said he was influenced by nuanced, beloved movies of the 1970s such as "The Last Detail" and "Five Easy Pieces." Mottern said his female trucker character began with a woman he saw at a Southern California truck stop — a "beautiful woman, bleach blonde ... skin tanned to leather walked like a Teamster, blue eyes.” - Paul Brownfield

Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention. In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardees specifically focused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia. This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport. This is important because the DOT has previously agreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.

The United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry. It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike. However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department. The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation. In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion. He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportation be elevated to a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAA be folded or merged, if you will, into the DOT. Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideas regarding transportation, thus putting the DOT into place.

The FMCSA is a well-known division of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). It is generally responsible for the enforcement of FMCSA regulations. The driver of a CMV must keep a record of working hours via a log book. This record must reflect the total number of hours spent driving and resting, as well as the time at which the change of duty status occurred. In place of a log book, a motor carrier may choose to keep track of their hours using an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR). This automatically records the amount of time spent driving the vehicle.

The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations. The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulations are exposed.   Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA program is known as the Safety Measurement System (SMS). This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.  

The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final home. Even when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

Although there are exceptions, city routes are interestingly most often found in the Midwestern area of the United States. Though they essentially serve the same purpose as business routes, they are different. They feature "CITY" signs as opposed to "BUSINESS" signs above or below route shields. Many of these city routes are becoming irrelevant for today's transportation. Due to this, they are being eliminated in favor of the business route designation.

The 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name. Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground and was shocked when his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute. The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.

The year of 1977 marked the release of the infamous Smokey and the Bandit. It went on to be the third highest grossing film that year, following tough competitors like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Burt Reynolds plays the protagonist, or "The Bandit", who escorts "The Snowman" in order to deliver bootleg beer. Reynolds once stated he envisioned trucking as a "hedonistic joyride entirely devoid from economic reality"   Another action film in 1977 also focused on truck drivers, as was the trend it seems. Breaker! Breaker! starring infamous Chuck Norris also focused on truck drivers. They were also displaying movie posters with the catch phrase "... he's got a CB radio and a hundred friends who just might get mad!"

Unfortunately for the trucking industry, their image began to crumble during the latter part of the 20th century. As a result, their reputation suffered. More recently truckers have been portrayed as chauvinists or even worse, serial killers. The portrayals of semi-trailer trucks have focused on stories of the trucks becoming self-aware. Generally, this is with some extraterrestrial help.

In today's popular culture, recreational vehicles struggle to find their own niche. Travel trailers or mobile home with limited living facilities, or where people can camp or stay have been referred to as trailers. Previously, many would refer to such vehicles as towable trailers.

Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it. This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state

With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.

In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
