    Hi Road pilots
    I’m looking into leasing a truck from SFI , they asks for 15k down and 1200$ x 156 weeks for brand new 2022 cascadia with APU including maintenance , I want to know opinions from experience truckers or someone shares his experience about SFI.
    The truth what some of you may hate it , I’m new immigrant to us with good credit score but light history, lenders make it impossible to lend me a commercial loan .
    SFI allow to run under outside authorities , the main point is to left myself up from company driver slavery and have a slight change to run my own small show for the ups and downs.
    Any advice or experience sharing is so appreciated

    202,000 plus insurance = alot of money?? Try driving for SFI for a year and see how you like the way they treat you before you start! a lease purchase deal! and leave 15000 grand behind if you leave?

    That’s a fair deal, that’s the price of new equipment and they aren’t even charging him interest. He is getting an amazing deal. He is lucky.

    so you go from one form of slavery to another?

    don’t get into a lease purchase unless you have a back up plan and a way out. Read the contract very carefully - get a l lawyer to answer your concerns and questions - ask to talk to others who are doing the same thing to see how successful they have been and get everything in writing.

    I'm sure the op is feeling fortunate to find a company that will lease-purchase a truck to him.

    Not many around offering a can't refuse deal like this...wink wink.
