    First of all your just a glorified company driver with a payment that includes :
    Fuel
    License n permits
    Insurance
    Breakdown repairs

    you still want to be a lease operator at 1.05 a mile? Or less.
    major carriers don’t give a rats ### about if your succeed or don’t succeed.
    If you don’t they will find another sucker to put his ### in that seat you kept warm for how many miles you drove it?

    the next guy will get a supposedly a new truck if they detail it before you get in it ? Or fix it ?

    Otherwise It will smell like ### n feet. No one likes that smell.
    Your best bet is to save your money and buy a truck , not the first one you see but take a few months and look. Take a mechanic with you That knows his stuff .
    have some cash on the side because you never know what’s gonna happen down the road. Not everyone can go out and get there own authority and be 100% owner operator, it’s not that easy. if you decide to ? There’s a lot of good company’s to lease on too ? Just do the work it will save you time and money.
    Not a major carrier.
    They will take a majority of your profits. You’ll get every crappy load they don’t want there company’s drivers to take.
    Be safe
    Use a cb
    Show me sum courtesy lights if I let you pass me

    everyone wants to get home or someplace in one piece. Be the best driver you can.

    Where do I sign up?!

    And why should you thank you with courtesy lights when we pass you?
    Are you one of those who speed up to try and keep governed trucks from passing so it’s like we were privileged to be passing you?
     
    BackwoodsGA and D.Tibbitt Thank this.

    I have looked at lease contracts because weird stuff intrigues me. The numbers don't add up. You complete a lease, you were a slave. No other answer.
