    Lease or a lease purchase through the company you are pulling for?

    No one ever has. They are all a scam.

    The lease is a rip off.
    The 40-60 cents per mile is a rip off.
    The insurance is a rip off.
    The industry as a whole has engulfed in corporate policymaking rules and forgot all about the driver's that made them

    I have done a lease purchase from a carrier with a 10k buyout. The carrier actually had alot of drivers complete their lease programs. They made sure you got the revenue to succeed and trust me it wasnt much at that . I lost DPF filter. Rearend , Cam, they had a maintenance program designed to drain your funds. But it was achievable. I then flipped the truck for New Glider leased to a carrier

    I know a few guys who lost their cars and went bankrupt from leasing a truck I mean isn't that the goal of leasing from a company
