agency section Sept 2011
Dear Prospective Agent:
As you scroll through our website, you will see why VHI has been such a success. What I want to tell you about in this personal letter is why we can help YOU be successful too. It has to do with three things –
• We’ve done the hard stuff
• You get to use it all (surety, insurances, Technology, diversified carrier base, fast pay)
• We’ve got your back
The reasons are that simple for choosing VHI for a long term and mutually profitable independent contractor relationship.
Doing it all on your own is a huge and time-consuming investment; too much for most to undertake. We offer you all the tools and support that we have developed over decades of success in the freight transport business. You can make a good living without any of the up-front investment that keeps so many out of the business.
Whether you are an owner/operator, a returning veteran, someone looking for a new career or an independent agent looking to change your affiliation, VHI deserves your consideration.
If you are interested in this type of a business venture, or if you know someone who is, please click here and check us out. Read detailed information about our Agency program that we hope you will find interesting and compelling.
