    spyder, that's exactly what I'm talking about, I may have a lender for non-traditional financing - and plan to lease on that truck lease at a truck firm. Do I understand your statement correctly?

    Prostar?! You do know trucking requires drug testing and vision checks right? The only way one could confuse that nice international with a trashy prostar is if they was either blind or high.


    Ok now that the obligatory moment of busting your balls for lack of knowledge is out of the way, back to your prior question. Yes i was talking about non traditional financing and leasing the truck to a carrier. While not ideal, that is a viable way to get into the industry. Just make sure you avoid all the carrier ran lease purchase scams. They are even worse than buy here pay here lots. One thing all decent lenders have in common, even the ones targeting those without good credit, the subprime (B grade) lenders. They ALL require a decent down payment. Anyone advertising zero down is going to rob you blind. Avoid them.

    Three years as a company driver, Tommy? How long did it take you to save $30k? What do you pay out annually for cost to operate the truck - which I'm guessing you've broken down into a per mile stop gap accounting? Maintenance escrow account holding a minimum of...$? Emergency monies on hand?

    Taking notes here.
    I do appreciate any help.
