    Yeah, prob better to talk to someone doing the lease for that detailed info. I've heard that lease ops get the same fuel discount though

    Yes still with usa, we get their discount on fuel. There is an app when you get signed on that tells you what you are paying at each location. Yes the money is there you have to be good at managing your expense, don't be afraid to say no to a load you don't want. I don't haul over 40,000 and I won't go north or east of pa. I have said no to plenty of loads cause they were short or simply didn't wanna go there never been penalty for saying no.

    I live up north but I'm going to try and stay down south has much has possible due to fuel cost and the winter. How hard is it on the wallet or how much do you set aside to be able to be home every 3 weeks and do they have tax help

    Living up north,lol. I'm from michigan, depends where you live. If you live in a good freight area home time every 3 weeks could be fine a bad area like Michigan I go home about every 4 weeks. The key is to split your home time. Pay period ends on a Monday so if you were taking like 4 days off do sat-tuesday. 2 days from each pay period softens the blow.

    Depends on your truck payment, fuel, an what you put aside for maintenance. I usually clear 900 to a 1000 after everything with those miles. USA will give you more than that though if you want it. Not uncommon to average 2700+ miles if you wanna do it.

    They were OK for dry van freight. Plenty of miles. They paid for tolls and scales. Permits an plates were covered. They run east of I 35.
