    does ANYONE own there truck when it's financed????

    how about your car???

    your house???

    the dillusions of thinking you own something. when the bank can taketh away for any reason.

    100's of drivers own there own truck. and they have sammons to thank.

    Hypothetically, I would be looking to clear is $1K a week to apply to personal expenses after L/O expenses (health insurance, mortgage, food etc), I think that is reasonable....

    Is this possible? If so, what is the breakdown?

    Well thank you for your honesty.... I will look elsewhere, I really had high hopes for Sammons

    Irregardless, my philosophy is this; There's is absolutely no reason why I shouldn't be able to clear $1K a week in this business with my experience and safety record in flatbed logistical services, especially here in Texas, I may have to stay a company driver to get to that amount, but oh well.....

    1st off im not with sammons, but you hav to look at it a lil differnt that making 1k right out of the gate. From my understanding of wut the L/P offer is that u will still make a paycheck with them, and the surplus of wut u will gross goea to paying off the truck. After the truck is paid for then u should clear wut u wanna make. L/p is not a get rich idea its a get into trucking at a slower pace than jumping in with both feet and hoping for the best.

    I really must misunderstand these plans then. I drive a (then new) Volvo I leased and make an average of $1,250 a week before taxes and am usually home every other weekend. In a few more months I will own the truck outright. Why would anyone settle for more time out for less money in someone else's used truck?
