    You might check out H&P trailer rental. I know a new guy that used one of their trailers for a while. If he had a problem with it, they got him another one.

    I’m leasing mine from atlas sn outta Chicago and I mostly did load out trailers where I had to drop that trailer where the company wanted it. I just booked loads accordingly, you will deadhead trying to get these trailers & you mostly keep em for 7-10 days at a time

    Find a decent used one for now, once you get established and start actually making money order a new one the way you want it
