Around here a few guys just show up at a livestock sales barn and let it be known they are there to haul. When they drop a load at the sale barn they let the barn know how much the hauling fee is and the barn will deduct it from the sellers check. I have been told that some of them when they leave the barn with a load will do the same thing with the barn collecting from the person who bought the cattle when they pay for the cattle they bought. Sure takes a lot of the risk out of it.

Hi Rick, sereral years ago I hauled for the neighbors, it was a pain, you have to load in some of the dam est places, stock never up and ready, ruin tires in barn lots, and that is your expence. some people forget to pay, its more wear and tear on your equip.And I sure wouldn't loan it out to anybody. this was my experence.

Before taking money from anyone, you should check with the state police and your insurance agent to make sure you're legal and covered. Commercial hauling without a commercial driver's license and insurance can be very expensive.
