I would look into less-than-truckload loads for your flatbed I would say get a drop deck instead of a flatbed the higher-up it's always tarping the lower to the ground a better it pays if you get a step deck triple axle 17 1/2 inch tires 12ft top 41 foot bottom you'll do a lot better than just a regular flatbed.you can also haul vehicles and other things that you can on a flatbed without rims but with your step decks you can have ramps it's like $3,500 for a set there aluminum the little hole pretty much anything you put on a step decks.but the idea is to get a truck load and go Coast-to-Coast but it's less than truckload of three or four stops three or four different vehicle three or four different products that's a good way to make money. What your flatbed is mainly going to be a lot of products were it's all the same stuff is either wood products of some type of another Steel products rebar all kind of stuff like that but you do on a flatbed with a step deck you can have a variety in your load.
