My experience of leasing a truck from the company

by Angela Udechukwu

I've been driving for 3 years and I have for the most part enjoyed it until I decided to try out the lease program. What a big mistake. I wouldn't advise it to anyone.

If you want to have your own truck, save your money, take out a loan and go directly to the dealer. Do not lease from the company you plan on driving for. It is the biggest scam out there. I believe it is set up for you to fail, and unless you've been driving with the company for years, you get the worst possible loads and your money earned generally only covers your expenses and fuel.

I wish I had known what I know now when I first started leasing.

Time to move on.

Schneider I Work For Them, And Talk To Leasors All The Time. They Make Good Wages. Have Not Heard One Bad Thing From Any Of Them. You Can Also Pick Your Loads, And Owner Operators Get First Choice Of Freight Before Company Drivers. I Have Often Times Considered Leasing Through Them Bit I Prefer To Own My Truck Outright.
Have Heard No Bad From The Owner Operators I Have Talked.To.

Good Luck
