Can I hotshot with a 20 ft trailer?
Hot shot trucks often tow trailers that can range from 20 to 40 feet. However, this is not a requirement to work with GoShare. Hotshot loads are often ltl loads. LTL stands for “less than load” meaning, less than a full container or truckload.
Do you need your own trailer for hotshot trucking?
First and foremost, hot shot truck drivers need a pickup truck and some kind of flatbed trailer for hauling loads. I recommend getting a dually pickup truck, but that comes down to personal preference.
What do I need to haul hot shot loads?
Hotshot drivers need a basic Class D driver’s license. This is the standard license most citizens receive when they apply for a license. As long as cargo loads they haul are under 10,000 pounds, a hotshot driver does not need a commercial driver’s license (CDL) that truck drivers have.
