Where are you surveying?

Student Surveyor

Greetings to all from Romania. First of all, I would like to thank all of you for creating this amazing community. I want to write this topic because I am a bit confused about the importance of owning a personal vehicle. I want to know if it is important to own a personal vehicle in order to do land surveying for a company or if the vast majority of companies provide a car. This is an important question for me because this means that I might have to buy a car just to go into land surveying and this has some serious financial implications for me and my family. I am still a student and I am not a full-time surveyor.Ā

  • Not a Surveyor

    It would have to depend on the surveying firm you are involved in and the availability of mass transportation to and from your employer. For my situation, I have a personal vehicle that I drive to our office, then drive the county survey truck to the project sites.Ā 

    If you plan to become a solo surveyor or work on your own, you will most definitely need to have a personal vehicle (purchased or leased) to transport your supplies and equipment to and from your projects.

    Thank you for your kind words. Ā I'm not sure about Romania, but here in Florida a vehicle is a must, unless you work for a company which supplies a ride to and from the jobsite..let's see what others say..
