    Haven't even bothered with getting a loan off the bank or any of those hippdy dips.

    Just drive, and drive, and drive, and sleep
    and drive
    and drive
    and drive

    Thats the best way forward, if you do 3 or 4 journeys a day, it will take maybe 2 weeks to get your own truck (and thus, your own profit), but with a bank, you are paying off for up to 150 days...which is a pain!

    Many on other forums disagree with me on that, but its how you wish to play it.

    Trying to set up a company is a pain in the .................................................. .. <<< tons of foul language there. Seriously, what is the ............................................ point in having hired drivers who just stay idle.

    Have you raised their skills? Mine made me a loss until he levelled up enough for 1 point in long distance, 1 in fragile and 1 in high value. They then started to bring in around 2k profit per drive, but they are wreckless, so just standard cabs with economy engines to save on fuel costs.

    no, but there are lots of smaller dealers, they have slightly better prices on base models, but more expensive upgrades...it works out the same overall

    Makes no sense to you, makes perfect sense to me. I will be trucking for a while. A friend of mine has hit level 36, maxed out all skills and is pulling in around 100k per job! He buys all garages as he passes by, and still hasn't unlocked the full map.

    Started a Manchester to Calais run last night. 10 secs out of the pickup the air brakes had a fault so i had to sit and wait for the pressure to build back up for about an hour in game time in the middle of traffic......got 3/4 of the way there and the game bloody crashed. missed out on about 25k payout, didn't have the heart to go back in again!

    Some cracking jobs come from Rotterdam. Had one yesterday take me to Paris, which is a lovely trip. Also there are some great ones from Felixstowe also, as they hit most of Germany (after level 8 or 9)

    I think the last one I completed before the crash was Duisberg to somewhere in Austria. Was a nice run, managed 55mph all the way, but was at night so didn't see too much. Duisberg seems to be the main start/end point for a lot of my recent runs
