I would not go into a lease purchase with Gordon if you can not even get 1000 miles a month. Why would they give you more just because your lease purchasing a truck from them? Start talking to as many company drivers as you can and find out what kind of deal they are getting before you jump off into the fire......

I'd go with a company that has at least 2000 miles to offer you, per week. 800-1000 per month is a joke.

It's tough to find good, professional drivers. If you have a fairly clean MVR, at least two years experience, and know what you're doing...you shouldn't have any problem grossing a thousand a week.

I have two drivers running from Houston to Baltimore each week. $0.34 per mile and home on weekends. The jobs are out there. Just need to look. Hit up a good solid driver-leasing company like mine. They may have something up your alley.

800 to 1000 a month you never leave home 4 yrs exp you have a lot of options plenty companies hiring right now giving 2000 to 2500 a week can easily bring home 1000 or more weekly pay check your local craigslist for your area

what are you willing to do and give up to be able to get a job that makes you more money? If you live in MT maybe you can consider working in the oilfields, I think I may have heard there could be few openings in that sector, If you are making $340/ month in a truck, why aren't you working for walmart or mcdonalds and make $500/ month. Or maybe you should get off your @*@ and figure out your life on your own!!!!! don't get me wrong its great that you are asking for help and this is a good place to do so but comon, you are making $340/ month and you don't know what to do to better your earnings? the answer is ANYTHING but what you are doing now!!!! If you a competent driver with 4 years of exp. then you shouldn't (in my opinion anyway) be even considering a lease purchase until you can afford a truck let alone have a place to make good $$$. Sorry if you get butt hurt, well actually I don't give a #$&! if you get butt hurt, so wake up and get a job where you can make more money then a kid selling lemonade!!!

Are you tied to living in MT? being your wife isn't working, maybe you could move to a place where the pay and miles are better. I drive for Millis and usually have no problem getting 2500-3000+ miles a week. My best here has been 3980, and I am averaging TAKE HOME of about $800 a week - that's after taxes, insurance, etc., direct deposit into my bank account. However, you need to live in the running lanes, which are the eastern 3/5 of the United States (draw a line between Ft. Worth and Minneapolis, east of that 95% of the time). If you are interested (or anybody else) call 800-284-8153 and talk to Faye Rogstad. If you would, please tell them that Dale Eckart in 2007 sent you. We get paid for referrals here too. I am a driver, not a company spokesperson - there are things I think could be better, but what place isn't like that? Anyway, it's a pretty good place to work and they get you miles, and that's the bottom line. Good Luck! Oh, I forgot.. they run newer KW equipment (T-700) mostly, some FL but not many. On average they run tractors 3 years and turn 'em in.

Don't do it! It may seem like a quick solution to your problems but they will only get worse. Learn the business first.

Get your credit built back up first. You need cash to run a truck.

One break down and you're out of business and on the hook for a lease.

It's not how much you make, it's how much you keep.

As a Co. driver, you keep it all, after taxes of course!

Find a carrier that can give you the miles and pay. 800-1000 miles a month? Keep looking, thats not even part time if it was per week.

PM me if you are serious about working hard and making a honest living. I do opendeck/ flat/RGN freight. You get paid percentage of the gross line haul. My other guys make around $60 000 a year.
