    Anyone doing it or thinking about the new lease they have come up with.
    From what I can gather, truck payment is a set price monthly ($2500-$2800) depending on truckt and includes routine maintenance/tires etc.
    Paid plates,prepass, and qualcom.
    Haven't been able to nail down insurance prices yet.

    Havent heard much about it, but that sounds about right. My own truck is about $2000 a month between the payment and maintenance, but its a much more simple truck with slightly higher miles.

    The competition is well above $3000. Many companies are $900 PER WEEK. So I would say this is a fair deal.

    But I would avoid the freightliners unless you are going to team or train, because I have one and the idle systems are awful. The Petes and KW that Werner has are pretty awesome, so I would definitely recommend going with one of those instead of an FL.
    Matt43324 Thanks this.

    I've been curious about this one myself, just as Dave said other company leases run 900 a week. I've been toying around with the idea of doing a lease to get a better understanding of the owner operator world in other words use it as a stepping stone. I feel like it would be easier financially to fail at a lease versus Failing when you have semi truck financed.
