    Unfortunately I am learning the hard way because as a result of me signing a full service lease contract with meadowlark trucking company out of Billings Montana I am at the mercy of that company. Once you sign the full service lease contract they are absolved of almost any legal responsibility except for the administrative and punitive monetary penalties which they will impose on your settlement which they are very good at.

    So what you are saying. Is that you signed a contract. That you didn't fully understand. But they're to blame. Gotcha.

    Take your copy of the contract to an attorney. You have a copy, right?
    He may be able to spot some loop holes for you.
    From now on, read the contract or have an attorney read it for you.

    Yeah whenever you a "full service" contract, it basically means the truck co. owns your soul. You are paying extra for them to repair the truck if necessary. They are doing dispatching/bookeeping, everything. You will get a weekly statement with all deductions. You cannot do any alterations to "your" truck. Was it a brand new truck ? With a juicy weekly payment of a $1000 ? luck to ya'

    You do not have the accessibility to read an e contract sir. It goes directly to where your initials go....
    But your right, and your also an instigator. But be that as it may....Meadowlark...STAY AWAY.
