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??

See reason #2 above.

That's you.

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

As I bring this to a close in order to save time and my brain cells, we teach Best Practices here on Trucking Truth. Leasing ain't one. We're ecstatic you're happy.

The reason you never get responses from lease ops is because people like you give toxic criticism instead of advice. I'm done with this site. S rew TT and screw you.

Texas Tim,

Really?? Because I’ve asked for advice on another forum and a couple drivers, PackRat included pretty much called me a failure for even considering lease and he continued that criticism here. In order for me to get a CDL my best recourse was to sign on with a company that trains and commit to them for a year. Wilson is one of the best ones. The only two options now that I’m in a truck are company and lease and at 46 cents a mile, company is way less than I can make and be able to provide for my family. I know lease isn’t an ideal situation and I know why but it is the best option I have right now.I came back to TT for advice on how to make the best out of a less than ideal situation and was basically called an idiot. I know you are only seeing part of what bothered me about PackRats comments since they were not in this thread but I am not going to let him continue to trash talk my decision. TT was a big help in helping me get my CDL but now that I am on my own it has been the opposite. I’m sure PackRat has a ton of knowledge but he like a lot of experienced drivers he seems jaded and bitter for some reason. To take that out on me don’t fly with me. I ain’t some punk kid.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

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.

Look at the statement. I’ve netted $67000 already this year in 8 months. That’s a projected $101,000 for the year. How is that not better than $72,000? That’s $30,000 better. That’s almost a dollar more per mile than a Wilson company driver. Is there a company that can guarantee $1.40 a mile to a driver with less than a years experience? I’ll turn my two weeks and go there if there is.

SAP:

Substance Abuse Professional

I'm always wishing you well, Tim. We each have our OWN paths, blessed from above. If we were all alike, life would be boring. So would the Heavens above!

Next question; what other forum?!?!??

Didn't know there is / was one ?!?!? (please don't say TTR... !)

Stay safe, stay blessed.
