    What's the best lease program? So I can get scammed out of all my money then come here and complain telling everyone to avoid the company. Seriously why do people keep falling for that ####?

    All you got to do is run 8000 miles a week
    Team with a wet behind the ears rookie.
    You should clear 600 a week easily.

    Prime
    3000 a week payments, 60 mph trucks.
    If you can handle that for 5 years they'll be
    So happy they'll cut you a check for 5 grand
    For being stupid enough to pay 350,000
    For their truck.

    And don't forget you can now sit at the counter
    At the iron skillet and impersonate a owner operator.

    There's a few reasons.

    First, if you don't have much or any money they will GLADLY put you in a truck with bad credit. A typical fleece purchase makes the company about $3000 profit a month.

    Second, drivers without a business background fall for the scam. They don't realize they are "buying a job". Sure, they make more money than a company driver, but not enough. The question is can you hire a REALLY GOOD DRIVER to drive your truck for you, pay THEM a really good wage, and STILL make a really good profit? You won't see very many lease purchase FLEET "owner's".

    Third...and I have heard this more than a few times...they talk about "freedom". Fleece purchase deals talk up the idea that now you are "in business for yourself". You have the option to turn down loads. You can take time off whenever you want, BUT that weekly payment is still ticking.

    There are folks that have made it work. But those are folks that are willing to work their ### off to buy the truck at the end of the lease.

    I have heard there are relatively good lease purchase programs. Some are even offered by the company you lease on with. But those are few and far between.
