    I was wondering for my guys who lease what’s the average number of miles u run a week. As a company driver I’m averaging roughly 2500 miles and was wondering with a lease getting paid 65% of the load would I be able to run less miles and make a decent amount of money?

    The short answer is yes or no. To many depends to give an absolute honest correct answer.
    Where do you live?
    Where do you run?
    What kind of freight do you haul?
    What kind and how much for lease?
    What does company pay vs what you will have to pay as lease driver (truck, fuel, tolls, maint, etc)
    Without knowing who you work for, and what kind of rates they get. Best answer i can give is ask some of your companies lease drivers. What they net bring home, and how many miles on avg do they run. (Be sure to ask SEPERATLY 3 kinds of lease drivers.
    1) long term drivers who have been there 5-10 years.
    2) med term drivers who have been thier 2-5 years.
    3) relatively new drivers who have been there 1-2 year drivers
