    I believe you're seeing different financing packages. My truck was bought brand new at the end of 2011. I picked it up at the factory where it was built as a 2012 model 630 Volvo with the 12 speed automatic. Tjb10 has the same truck but a model year newer and I think he posted in his post he got it used......that makes a difference. I have the option to refinance mine at Dart for better rates if I choose, or trade it in for another brand new truck. Mine is financed for 6 years with a baloon at the end to be financed for a year, making it a 7 year total pay off. I believe Tjb10 said his is financed for 5 years. I'm sure he'll answer you back on that when he gets back on. Hope that helps!

    Yeah I spoke to Phil Marston a couple of months ago to see what he had in stock new for Volvos, had some new 670s but with single screw only. I have to twin screws. Some of my customers have really rough yards with BIG holes. What did your new 780 run you, about 140-150k range?

    I have been weighing the idea of a LP for some time. I checked out your post which was really helpful. I have been a company driver for 27 years but now it might be time to change. I live in CA but would like to run the super south, I have family in Knoxville where I could stay on home time until I move the family out.
    How is Dart with newbies to the LP world?? Any input from you would be appreciated.
    Thank you/

    Thanks for the posting on here about Dart. Im in their motel now waiting for orientation tomorrow and ive been trying to go over the numbers and figure out what I will have to do to survive. I know it wont be easy but seeing that some drivers are actually making it, makes me feel better about going into it. Maybe ill start a thread with my experiences with them too.

    Firecracker-How's it going with Dart? I'm starting with them on the 7th. Curious of everything is working the way they said it would.

    Been with Dart 4 months now. It's going well. Iam not pushing and still getting 2600 to 2900 miles wek except hometime and reset . To date my profit ranges from 1100to 1800 but overal average from date of hire is 1227 that's including home twice and 3 resets that I could have worked through. Don't forget to put that25% away for quarterlies just paid 2nd quarter it was $4600.00 Had to buy 9a windshield and a supersingle tire already. Just bad luck . Now I know some wmay slam me saying it's not much but I reject loads I don't like and I have a new volvo 630 under warranty and can upgrade to new model year anytime. So stress is down. Ok I'm ready for the criticism.
