So in my struggle to find a company that fits my needs I've been thinking about just buying a truck and leasing onto schneider. I have basically been living in my company truck for the last year and have managed to save a little more than 30k, i was looking at my options and think im gonna go with lone mountain truck sales. I called on a 2016 volvo they have, they said its got 95,000 miles on it and its still under warranty for 4 years. I plan on putting $12,000 down which will bring my monthly payment down to around $1150 for 40 months. I've heard so many bad things about alot of these lease to own companies, and all the ones i checked out (such as prime) want $850+ a week for some beat up pos with half a million miles on it. figured i might as well finance my own truck so i can take it with me if i decide i dont like whatever company im running for. Anyways have any of you got your truck through lone mountain? What do you think of them in hindsight?

If you don't mind me asking what is your mechanical aptitude? Some of the warranties have specific small print that can be costly. I can't say anything about the company you are looking into that is just in general.

We really shy away from discussing leasing/purchasing tractors here at TT.

There are numerous other resources you can check - other forums, OOIDA , etc.

We do one thing VERY WELL - assist folks interested in entering the industry in getting the best, most informed start possible.

Everything else - we leave to others better equipped.

A 2016 Volvo with 95,000 miles for less than $50,000? What is wrong with it? Sounds way too cheap to me, or you got bad info from Lone Mountain.
