    Most drivers can't even make it as company drivers at the same company for longer than a month. So thinking these same people could complete a lease is insanity at it's purist.

    Many people have proved a lease can be done. It just takes that person putting in the work and doing it through the right place.

    Plenty of drivers have gone through a bank and fell face 1st into bankruptcy. Sometimes no matter how hard you work or how much research you do. You might just end up failing but a lot of times the failure is caused by lack of work ethic or lack of research.

    still got to be just as careful as those that offer financing for equipment are just as bad and will give you horrible apr's unless you have impeccable credit with a few revolving credit accounts chances are the deal will not be that great. its not like buying a house or a new car they take advantage of those with less than perfect credit.

    Leased with prime a few years ago never had a problem.
    Make great money and truck is paid for.
    Also with prime if my truck breaks down they will front the money for repair.
    Couldn't be happier with this company and would not drive for anyone else.
    Maybe I'm just lucky
     
    bzinger Thanks this.

    What do you consider great money? People who work at McDonald's make more money than most Prime drivers.
