    I 've been looking for a company to buy out my contract with CR England, but all the ones I've tried all say they don't buy contracts. Has anyone recently started with a company that offered to pay tuition from another trucking company's contract?

    Look for a company with a sign on bonus and use that to pay off or toward your contract.

    Does it have a non compete clause?
    How long would you have to pay it off?
    How much longer do you have on the contract?

    There's no non compete clause. Idk how long I'd have to pay it off. Idk probably till its paid off. They settle the tuition debt after you work for them for one year.

    Find out exactly what the situation is. If they’ll set up a payment plan Or when does the first payment have to be made if you did leave? How far into that year are you? Like mentioned before find someone with a sign on bonus or if you find a nice outfit that’ll pay you enough to pay it off. Part of the contract I had with Schneider if I left early I had 2 months to make first payment. So I’d figure out the situation and go from there
     
    BPCampbell Thanks this.

    First, know that they have people who scan this forum for drivers posting about the company.

    They let me go so I don't have to worry about being fired if that's what you're getting at.
