    Unfortunately life doesnt work that way...it's kinda like someone asking you to borrow your car or money and you knowing the last time they did they never brought your car back or paid you your money. If your credit is bad or not "developed" yet...you're not going to be able to get a commercial loan.BUT you can do like Mitt Romney suggested and ask your parents.Or write off the $ you spent on that truck on your taxes and go to Lone Mountain and get another one.I hear a lot of folks go there when their credit isn't up to snuff. And some of the trucks are not bad. Just from what I've heard.

    You may be able to get a personal line of credit. Check with your bank. Also read your lease agreement carefully. Your probably SOL, but there may be a way out and get your money back. Read it completely and maybe even have a lawyer read it.

    NO matter what you do, get a lawyer and have them advise you. Stop messing around trying to do brain surgery in the dark.

    You may be able to transfer your lease purchase to another company, I'm not sure but you may be able to do it, Like mentioned there may be a clause that states this in your contract, if not then you are SOL. I hope your situation improves. Good Luck.

    Without decent credit and experience, you will most likely either have to stick it out with your carrier or walk away and lose whatever you have invested in the truck. At this point, you are only "renting" the truck. You have no ownership stake in the truck. The first thing to do is look over the contract carefully and find an attorney to look it over for you, as someone else suggested. Both you and the company will be bound by the terms of the contract.
