    i'm sure this question has been asked 1000 times but I can only find spotty information on it. Does Mercer have a lease purchase flatbed trailer program and if so is it a good one? Any current Mercer drivers can please chime in. Thanks.

    Yes it's 435 a month and $100 escrow which they put towards the balloon payment at the end. It's a 5 year lease.

    Yes per month. If u turn the trl in they use that to pay wear n tear and you get what's left.

    I came in June, and when we picked out our trailers they said
    " We used to charge 435 a month and have a balloon payment at the end but now it's 535 a month with a 1 dollar buyout ."
    I was expecting the 435 and 100 a month because that's what I read here but it's all good .
     
    Airborne Thanks this.

    Yep same total amount so no real difference to us. Would love to know what their reasoning was. Probably some bs lawyer issue.

    I assume it was people asking for escrow money back and - or - not making balloon payment when they grabbed a used one
