I’ve dug pretty deep into it a couple of years back. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Sure you can make a living off it, but thinking your going to make more than you do now without putting in 14hr days then your kidding yourself.
My wife’s 60 year old coworker “owns” two Amazon trucks for the past three years. She doesn’t make as much because she pays for “them” to do everything like fuel and maintenance. That’s where my wife got the idea from. My wife will be getting a settlement for her accident and this is what she wants to do with her money. Also, my son’s friend’s family owned several Fed-Ex routes too. They did very well.Had a ex-coworker who did some delivery contract work with FedEx in orland parks hub. He started with one truck , then he purchased a few more routes / trucks from others doing the same, hired drivers, filled in when needed, and then sold his routes to another person who would just buy organized / good staffed / liked by FedEx routes. Hours he said were brutal at times during the holidays, but made out really well when he sold them off.
It’s still a process to get accepted and right now only routes in Chicago are open. Plus there is this whole $30k needed for startup we don’t have yet. LOL
