    This is a troll. STOP FEEDING THE TROLL!

    He obviously doesn't know anything about Prime's leasing program just by his claim that the payments are $1,500 before tags,permits, and fuel.

    There are plenty of threads on here about Prime's leasing program with very good and accurate info.

    OK, i'm going to jump in here on this. 1st and foremost you need to talk to RedOctober about lease issue's with Prime as he has the most understanding on it as that is what he does and he has scrutinized the lease. 2nd NoFreeTime is the one I would talk to as far as being an O/O at Prime as he went company and saved his money and bought his truck and runs it with Prime. These 2 individuals have more knowledge on the Specifics on Prime L/O than any here to date.
    Now if you want my opinion from a business side/view. I would never recommend going lease, as all your doing is paying that companies truck payment. PERIOD. You really do not get any more freedom than a company driver, and your tied to a truck payment, that in truth is not yours. IMO you can make as much money going company as being a L/O. Go company, save your money and purchase a used truck from Pedigree truck sales, which as used Prime trucks.
    Also keep in mind, if you go Lease and find you can't do it, there really is no going back to company, least ways I have never heard anyone doing it, I could be wrong though.

    A guy I went to orientation did lease and quit and was going company. He did have to pay prime back $1400 which they deducted from his check weekly

    Volvo there's been quite a bit of numbers posted on here recently which is why I didn't post more in this thread. If you just go dig around prime's section of the forum you'll find it.

    Volvo, I am a Intermodal driver lease operator. My average weekly pay last year was 975.00 and that is leasing a full size condo. I like Intermodal and even though my average dollar a mile is 1.25 per mile but I love the home time and my driver managers.
