You went lease? Why? Get out of that if possible ASAP. You're going to have better odds playing the lottery each week.

TONS of articles on this site about why to never, ever lease.

I don’t work for free. No point in being away from home for months at a time if I can’t pay my bills. I have been able to do that as a lease op. Pretty well actually

That's nice. I'm sure Wilson appreciates you guys making their truck payments, hauling their freight goods, picking up most of the maintenance costs, reducing their tax burden, and offsetting a lot of the depreciation on their (it does read "Wilson" on the title) trucks. Makes me want to be a company owner or a 3 Card Monte dealer right now.

I assume you own your own truck, which I'm sure is awesome and because of that you make good money, but do you honestly think most of us have the credit or capital to do that?? Do you expect us all to be company drivers? That pays less than minimum wage so no thank you.

I had a NET income from driving of more than $75,000 in 2021 just as a company driver. I also netted an income in excess of $250,000 through real estate, military retirement, and two other businesses I have interests in, stocks, and gambling. My trucking expenses were food, clothing, and entertainment. Nothing extra that I wouldn't have already needed or wanted to consume, partake of, or utilize on the road or not driving.

People who argue that lease is the way to make more money make me laugh uncontrollably.

Please factually post ALL your numbers on here and show all us dummies how you're killing it, okay? I want to see everything that came in and everything that went out or is pending. Maintenance, fuel, settlements, taxes, insurance, workers compensation, accounting, down time, salary, equipment rentals, etc.....ALL OF IT. Prove to us how much we don't get it. Sell me on leasing as opposed to being a company driver. You can't.

You guys always do one of three things:

1. Post incomplete or inaccurate numbers.

2. Make ignorant arguments with nothing factual to prove the rants.

3. Go silent and disappear.

*HINT* Nobody has come on here yet in 15 years to prove our theory wrong, so be the first. Show me how it is worthwhile to struggle to make maybe 10 cents more per mile. Prove Me Wrong! Until you do, I'm done wasting my time typing.

You just admitted you have all kinds of other income to supplement not making much as a company driver so what does that prove?? I have 6 people including myself I am providing for and this is the only way I've been able to do it. I don't have to prove anything to you nor do I care to. This works for me and I could care less how much that upsets you! The fact that you're getting upset about it is childish anyway. I could give you all the numbers you want, hell I'll post every single one of my statements. I could care less!

Let's start with the previous month. It will take me a little while to get my other statements but I have this on hand. It has some year to date numbers. I know several company drivers and they make around $900-1000 a week. You can see from the statement I'm averaging twice that.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Besides I never said I was trying to be some damn poster child for lease ops I just don't know why several of you treat me like an idiot for making a decision that works for me and my family

I'm upset? Yawns.

That's all you have to say?? Pretty arrogant to criticize how I run my business, get the numbers laid out in front of you that you said I wouldn't provide and all you have to say is some snarky comment?? Why would I listen to any ****ty advice you have to give??
