Hi and welcome to the channel

Hey Family

We receive a lot of questions about how we got started in the business so I wanted to take a moment to share the steps we took to get started. All the links mentioned in this video are listed below

Want to learn about this business?
To schedule a consultation : https://calendly.com/boxtruckcouple

1️⃣Get Your LLC
Active Filings : https://activefilings.com
LegalZoom: https://www.legalzoom.com
Search google: “[your state] Secretary of State” to see if the name you want is not taken!
Cost varies by state

2️⃣Request an EIN (Tax ID)
IRS website: https://sa.www4.irs.gov/modiein/individual/index.jsp
Free if you do it yourself and its free

3️⃣Setup a bank account and sign up for QuickBooks
QuickBooks – $7/month: http://fbuy.me/v/christie_2416
***Big banks have better technology***

4️⃣Setup two email addresses
1 for important business, 1 for your motor carrier application so you can weed out all the marketing

5️⃣Get another phone number to avoid unwanted marketing calls/texts
One Talk: http://forhire.pro/OneTalk
Once you download the app, setup your voicemail and forward all calls straight to voicemail

6️⃣Apply for your Motor Carrier Authority
Application: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/registration/getting-started $300
Watch this video for step by step guide: https://youtu.be/ihqia3gfzzY
Seriously watch this video and don’t mess it up, takes forever to fix mistakes

7️⃣Get your BOC-3 and UCR
BOC-3 – $25: https://www.evilsizor.co
UCR – $62: https://www.ucr.gov

8️⃣DOT Physical Exam for Medical Card
Find a local examiner: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/medical/national-registry-certified-medical-examiners-search/results
~$85 – $100

9️⃣Need Insurance ?

1️⃣0️⃣Setup freight factoring and fuel cards
RTS: Justin – 1-605-467-7572 ( Tell him Christie Vaughn from Meant To Be Trucking LLC)
RTS is by far the best for both factoring and fuel cards plus they offer special rates for Amazon Relay

1️⃣1️⃣Find an amazing dispatcher
Interview several, don’t look for the cheapest, you absolutely want the best
If they charge more than others, that probably means they are better

1️⃣2️⃣Sign up for a load board
Truckers Edge – $39.95/month: http://forhire.pro/TruckersEdge
DAT Power – $149/month: http://forhire.pro/DAT
First month is free, start learning how to use these

1️⃣3️⃣Shop Box Truck Rental Rates in your area, let them know you are a motor carrier for Amazon, some provide better rates for this
Request a Budget account here: http://forhire.pro/Budget
Request a Ryder account here: http://forhire.pro/Ryder

1️⃣4️⃣New Entrant Phone Call
You will get a letter in the mail from FMCSA for your audit call. Do this ASAP. It’s easy, they basically just go over your application to verify what you’ve entered.

1️⃣5️⃣Pay your down payment for insurance close to the 21st day after applying for your authority
You have to wait 21 days from the time you apply for your Authority and you want to make your insurance effective a couple days prior to that to make sure the insurance company has time to process the filings so your MC will be active on the 21st day.

1️⃣6️⃣Apply to brokers:

C.H. Robinson: http://bit.ly/CHRobCarrier
