    Anyone with info about McMullen Brothers, the leasing company out of Nebraska?

    @bzinger , I know you've mentioned them. Would you give us the reason of your displeasure?

    Well lets see here its been 10 years ago hawk .
    Long and short tho is that I bought a truck from them that after a couple years of paying on it needed some pretty major work like an inframe and a clutch which they financed ....nothing in writing just a gentalmens agreement on a deduct out of my settlements and life goes on .
    This went on for a few months until one day I get a call from Marty McMullen saying he isn't getting his money back fast enough and will be taking all but 250 dollers of my settlements each week and I'm like how do I live on that and pay my bills ?
    He pretty much told me to dam bad and I told him yeah here's your truck I got bills to pay .
    Later found out he pulled that on a few other people also who had trucks leased at r@m , Cornhusker and fcc.
    Theres few people around that would like to catch Marty in a dark alley .
    Lonnie McMullen who was Marty's father passed away a few months ago and was a pretty honest guy had pretty much retired by 2005 turned things over to his sons by then .
    I've never looked back since but I wouldn't trust those boys with my !

    Hawk .
    I haven't visited this subject in many years but will add more to it in case you are thinking about jumping in to bed with these guys .
    McMullen always has taken terrible care of they're trucks in terms of drain intervals and lube work .
    Washes ? They don't get washed unless the driver washes it .
    Shop facilities amount to a junkyard with a shop .
    They buy new trucks and the dealers in Omaha / council bluffs don't even want em back cause they know how poorly they've been cared for .
    Not sure what your intent is but I'd avoid em .

    Somebody brought them up. I wanted any info I could find on them for my friend. Personally, I'm comfortable where I'm at.

    I thank you for your candor.
