Partners in Business tip: Buy oil in bulk


The do-it-yourself oil change is a standard for many owner-operators, especially those with their own authority. A one-truck operator can save almost $200 a year by moving from gallon jugs to 55-gallon drums for oil purchases, assuming 125,000 miles per year with an oil change every 25,000 miles. A first step in determining whether buying bulk oil makes sense for you is to contact a local distributor and explore pricing.

The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm. It is sponsored by Ryder.
