    Hi everyone I'm Michael, 26 years old and I've been in a lease purchase with Malone since June 12th.

    I already know.... save it. OMG they suck what're you thinking, haven't you heard the stories, Lease purchase really???

    Now let me tell you the truth.

    I run with a lot of freedom, we have a load board with between 350-1000 loads posted on it at any given time, and about 50 agents working with us that we pull freight for. I have a fleet manager who I rarely speak to and don't need to to be successful.

    I have a 2013 cascadia for $375 a week and 185 a week trailer rental. EVERYTHING minus windshields is covered bumper to bumper until September 2017 on my truck. After that I will enter a different period of maintenance. After insurance everything my weekly expenses are 918.74 a week, before fuel.

    I know what you want to hear, MONEY how much money right? Since getting my truck on June 12th and taking three weeks off one vacation, two for the loss of my wife's father. Not counting this week.

    I've ran 19,798 miles including deadhead miles, and I've generated $39,629.55 worth of revenue. Average weekly bring home before setting aside for taxes 1250-2600

    How? I am an extremely motivated greedy son of a gun who is after every dollar he can get, NYC, east west I don't care I run everywhere. I keep myself pre planned, and give excellent customer service. I am willing to tarp, chain and strap anything that will fit on the deck or get permits for what doesnt. I can be home every weekend if need be. The reviews on here before me failed because of to much home time, a nagging wife asking when their coming home and bad BUSINESS decisions. I have a 7 month old daughter and an amazing supportive wife at home, failing isn't an option. Multiple combat tours didn't make me a man, I only grew up faster. Men take responsibility and take care of their own. I love my family and want to be home, however I grew up with little, and letting them go without isn't an option. So I try to get through the house every couple weekends.

    If your interested I will try to keep in contact with what I'm doing weekly and how I'm making out.

    MALONE is my favorite company in the three years I've been driving commercially.

    Thursday I picked up two steel coils taped in Savannah GA paying $700 on 270 miles to Marietta GA. Unloaded same day and slept in Commerce GA at the TA. Loaded Friday morning in Jefferson GA for a load of Kubota tractors paying $850 on 393 miles to Lynchburg VA and went home until Monday. Delivered Monday and picked up no tarp pipe in Lynchburg VA paying $2700 on 1262 miles going to Kearney NE to finish the week. Delivered yesterday and started my first load this week. Grand Island Nebraska to Heyburn, Idaho no tarp plastic pipe $2163 on 920 miles. Currently in Snowville Utah for the night at the flying hook.

    Hope you follow, feel free to hate and down on me. Theirs a 100% you never step foot under my table to eat, therefore your opinions are only words.

    May high rates bless you,

    Sounds like you are doing pretty well.

    Are those rates To The Truck after there cut, or gross rates before CRST gets there cut ?
    playamwj12 Thanks this.

    All numbers are to the truck, I avoid cheap freight and will deadhead rather than feed a hungry agent.

    I forgot to mention, you get little assistance here, they teach you the system it's up to you to make it work for you. No baby sitting or FM finding loads for you.
    KevinE, Loke, skinnytrucker and 2 others Thank this.
