    Yes, you get paid for all miles, tools, permits, plate, qcolm, etc etc...The O/O just paid the fuel and truck maintenance and that;s it

    That sounds good but do they keep you movin.because sometimes company's prop up all the good stuff but can't keep you movin. I've heard guys sit more than move freight yes I know take what someone says with an open mind.unfortunately in these forums you read more bad than good adopt most co. leasing on with a co. is a tough decision we all have family's who depend on our decisions

    I'm in a lease and it's a joke. I've been trying driving for a while and got into a lease. The money is OK but when you look at the big picture you're paying double or triple what the truck is worth ... As a team we average from 2,500 to 3,700 a week. Like I say it's OK pay but could be more.

    No all leases purchase deals are bad. When you're paying twice or three times as much for a truck... It's not worth it.. There isn't one lease purchase that's 650 a month for 5 to 6 years.. all leases purchase payments are around 300 to 1000 a week for 4 1/2 to 6 years. Now do the math and tell me is it worth it.. Now if you're smart and that's only if you're have some common since ... Get in to a lease that can be concealed at any time.. work hard for a year or more and save up and buy your own truck. That's what I'm in the process of doing.

    I've never did a L/P I've been putting mile markers in my back pocket for 37yrs in my opinion find a good local co. That pays prevailing wages or buy your own rig .my feeling is when u L/P ur not doing yourself any favors . You are doing the co. A huge one 1. They don't have to match your taxes 1099. 2. They get a driver that usually needs to work and will always run out his 14 a day. 3. They eliminate cost of a late model not ordered with O/O specs tractor . Also fuel and maintenance cost due to uninformed and inexperienced drivers. 4. No vacation time no sick days no health ins.Nothing. just to name a few. Find a good paying hourly job locally or buy your own by the way bieng an O/O isn't for everyone. If that's what u want to do then my advice is payments r cheaper than repairs. Just saying

    You're not going to find a truck payment $650 a month unless its an older truck. But I understand where you're coming from. Those leases are expensive!
