New Article From Old School About Buying Or Leasing A Truck

I have been driving for 16 mo and I know I do not want to work for someone the rest of my life. I am a 24 yr Army Infantryman and I can motivate myself for the task. I do not need dispatch telling me " stay, sit or go." If anyone need that , then be a company driver. However, if you want to O/O, you have to be disciplined with your spending, speed/driving habits, time with love ones and veh maintenance and complaint with FMCSA. One can be a successful O/O if disciplined.

Many of you may have read Old School's excellent post the other day about leasing or owning a truck. If not, this is your chance.

Old School and I have kind of led the charge when it comes to persuading people to avoid buying or leasing a truck altogether, but especially as a new driver. We've both written on the subject many times, and this was another great one by Old School that I wanted people to take notice of.

When Is The Best Time To Become An Owner Operator Or Lease A Truck? Never.

If anyone has any questions about buying or leasing a truck we'd be happy to answer them. If you feel we're wrong about this, well quite honestly there's no need for you to waste your time trying to convince us with words. Get out that checkbook, sign on the dotted line, and go make yourself a fortune. THEN come back here and teach us how it's done so we can follow in your footsteps!
