    There’s plenty of loopholes in those leases....

    Ryder has been rumored to have told customers sorry no trucks available.....

    Well, that's their problem, I'm not going to apply there. :^)

    I agree that paper contracts don't mean a lot much of the time.

    A loaner or even an available rental is a big deal. When the shop noodles around for a week+ its a real budget killer.

    I have read a lot of bad reviews on Ryder leases even though they offer "full repair" coverage..yeah I'll bet.

    How are things coming? I dont have time to read through everything. Looking for hard number outside of the truck issues, like what you are averaging per mile when you are running.

    Gotta give me some time to get smoothed out before I can answer current situation. I gave hard numbers earlier I think back in February before It hit the fan. I'm getting excellent mileage with new truck so that should bump my bottom line.
    I've been out 3 days and by tomorrow will have grossed over $3300 so far.

    Wasn't trying to come off like a a-hole. I am just really interested in doing l/p with JB. Did they provide the truck or is it through a 3rd party dealer?

    I was in Hersey Michigan and saw a billboard announcing it was the home of Dairy Poo. I thought, What an unfortunate name for an ice cream parlor.....

    I didn't think you were being a stinker. This is through 3rd party Tel. I've only had this lease for 4 days and there's a couple things about how tel does business that I'm not crazy about. My earlier lease was through bcl and I was tres disgusted with them. It probably would have been ok if I hadn't gotten a lemon. JB only leases 47 of their own trucks at a time so they're not available that often. There's a waiting list for new tel kws. That's all I know. But I really like JB. I was thinking about the advantages of running their trailers instead of my own just today when I pulled up beside their mobil fix it truck and had them replace a difficult trailer light on the spot.

    Did you have a down payment and can you post up the websites of the 2 places you have gotten trucks thus-far?
