    Only place I would consider going is
    Loan mountain and then find your own company to work for.
    But, if you’re looking to lease + these rates. Good luck

    Do private parties do leases? I figured private party is for buying.

    Some big fleets have lease-only program where there is no downpayment required. You may actually get a bonus for entering the program. To start, you probably need to enter as an employee driver, then you should be able to enter the program within a month or less, depending on your trucking experience.

    Lease, I honestly dont know why you would want to In this market...unless u have customers willing to pay 3 dollar/ mile.. I know alot of guys who own trucks free and clear but still work as company drivers. I think maybe your need to rethink this. Just my opinion.
     
    Lepton1 and im6under Thank this.
