    Let's start with Hoosier Tradewinds, Arcadia, In. My husband is an owner operator, we had an appointment in Indy to get the transmission repaired, dispatch called and demanded that we take a load to Buffalo or the truck would be fired. Needless to say, we took the load, on that way back to Indy, just outside Geneva, Ohio....... The transmission literally fell out of the truck.
    Our second guest is Western Express Nashville, TN. We leased a real sweet KW T700 from Quality Companies. Went to orientation on our dime, they put us up in a #### hole motel, ####roaches, black mold, no toilet seat, pott smoke and hookers in the hallway, don't get me started about the dealers. We were in the dry van division. we spent 2 weeks in orientation. We had $2000 in our maintenance escrow that vanished.
    And number 3, Minus 20Transportation Owatonna, MN. Where to start, from day 1 it was nothing but lies. We had a contract to buy a 2013 Pete 379. Come to find out, the owner was not sending the truck payments to the bank, he sent them to his pocket. The AC went out on the truck and we took it to a shop for repair, we had the money in the maintenance escrow, but Steve refuses to pay out our money. The bank wanted the truck back, the contract was breeched for the second and third time. At this time, I can't say much more. We have our Lone Star out with a #### good driver, and we are in the Freightliner until our truck is delivered in Dec.

    You lied to me.....you said "I was gonna love this"; and I didn't. I didn't even 'like' it.

    1). I have no idea what a T700 is.
    2). 3 strikes and your out (leasing).
    3). Kick the driver out of the Lone Star and drive it instead of TRYING to lease another truck.

    Ever considered that maybe leasing onto a company might not be your strongest option???? Simply based on past performance.

    That was our first lease purchase truck. It's hard to type right now. We own the Lone Star, it doesn't have enough room for us and the things we need plus my service animal. We owned the Volvo that we had at Tradewinds, it was a old truck and yeah, the scrap yard was the best place for that one.

    We have only leased the KW and the Peterbilt. Our other trucks were bought out right. The Kw was for me when I got my CDL, the Pete was leased to help out Steve. But it's hard to help out someone who does not want help.

    No remorse on your option to go to Western express, plenty of evidence on here and other places that they are just garbage
