Whether you’ve never leased before or you’ve leased multiple times, getting into a lease-purchase agreement with a trucking carrier can be an overwhelming process.

This can be intimidating in a world where everything. just. costs. so. much.

I’ll start putting out feelers to my professional contacts, reviewing openings in the area and sending out my resume. Because I work in a corporate office, I might have to take a long lunch to go to interviews or I’ll take paid time off.

Have you ever gotten approved to go to orientation with a trucking company only to be placed on the orientation schedule several weeks (instead of days) later? It isn’t uncommon for trucking companies to have waitlists right now — for a plethora of reasons. A waitlist means you can’t go to orientation at that trucking company immediately.
