There are company's that will help with insurance, and fuel good company's do this. Remember they need you. you will make more then $70.000 but you do have to have a business realistic mined.

lease payments on a tractor trailer
by: jimmy

He's right, you GROSS about $150,000 yearly. remember, you have to pay your truck pymt, fuel, insurance , maint,etc. you're probably left with $40-50,000 net.

You have to have a business head to be an owner op. in 2007, i leased a new int'l from navistar for zero down and $1937.00 monthly pymt. for 72 months. i had excellent credit. freightliner would be about the same. figure $500 weekly, which is bad. monthly pymt is far better because weekly pymt is 4 times monthly plus extra 2 days in the month. fuel mileage in range of 6-7mpg. depends on your driving habits. absolutely keep your idling to a minimum. if you can find a used creme puff 06-07 with low miles, go for'll save bucks from the get go. don't worry about fancy add ons. that's not what makes you $$. when you remove everything from a truck, you simply have a carcus mfg by whoever(peterbilt, frtliner,mack, kenworth, int'l) everything else is mfg by a third party. in other words, all the truck mfg's only make the cab. do you want to pay premium $ for a pete vs int'l?...hope this helps you

how much does owner operator make
by: the crazy trucker

it's on this page just above your question man,
$100,000 - $150,000 regular freight in a dry van.

If you specialize you will make more depending on what you specialize in. (Household, Heavy Equipment, etc)

All lease payments are not the same you didn't even state the year or model. Those are questions you will have to call and ask freightliner after finding a truck you like.

Will depend on your credit and down payment.

If you can buying straight from dealership is chealer than leasing to buy. If u are leasing to build up your cash thats a differen5 story.

Just realize leas8ng payments will be high so your rate should be high.

hope this helped.
