Looking for a good company to lease with.
Posted: Sat Aug 18, 2007 1:34:16 PM

Hello everyone Im new to this board and Im  sure glad I found this site.  I have a 07 Dodge Megacab 4x4 dually diesel with a PJ 40ft GN flat bed. I had worked for Cheetah tranport I have to say I did not like to working with this company.  I spent most of my time dead heading and waiting.  I lost more money then what I had made with this guys.  Word to the wise stay away to say the least. 

If any of you could please give me some info on good companys to lease with.  I was looking a Frogy, have any one heard of this company?  Thank you for your time.

Tuf, why would you want to lease onto another company? You already have had a bad experience from Cheetah. Chances are your next lease wont be much better. Its really not that difficult to get your own authority, then go to work for YOURSELF! Sure the expense is more, but its worth it. There are too many guys out here taking advantage of O/O's that dont realize how easy it is. You are just putting WAY to much money into the pockets of these companies that want you to lease on with them. Think about this, if there was that much money in it, all these companies would buy trucks and hire drivers for them. There is not, so they want guys to go buy trucks, work under their authority and take a huge percentage of what the truck makes. Get your own authority, your own insurance and get loaded by Gary at M & H Logistics. He DOES NOT have a lease, he takes 10%, thats it. Go check out www.flatbedcarrier.com go to the forum, you will learn everything you need to know about this business.

Hey Tuf

Pandjexpress is right that you will make more money with your own authority but not everyone has the time or patience to look for loads.  I know that Frogy will help you run under their authority until such a time you want to do it yourself.  They have helped me out quite a lot.  I also know that information being sent is not always true, especially looking at the posting from M and H.  I know for a fact that they charge for more than "just 10%".  They have a $125 per month fee to just book loads and will not load you until it is paid up front.   In addition, they will not load your truck until it has unloaded so you waste time sitting waiting for a load.  I know that Frogy does it different and they are days ahead finding loads.  Matter of fact, I had some problems with routing and I gave them a call in the evening hours and was happy to see they were still working, helping me out.  M and H is a good company with lots of O/O but like everything else in the world there is the fine print and the truth, the entire truth, is hard to find.

FYI

This is the first time I have posted anything on this web or any others.............check it out and you will see................so why does Kansas think I could be dangerous? 

I was referred to this site as I have recently retired and now am running a truck as a new and part time way to make money.  I work when I want and hunt and fish more than work.  What a great deal.  I am a Hillbile by lifestyle and tell no tales.  I make enough money from my retirement to sustain my lifestyle.  I have worked with Frogy when I started this business and looked around and talked with a lot of O/O before I made any decisions.  The truth has only one form and lies have many faces and hide in the shadows. 

So Kansas does not know me nor does any other because I am new.  Frankly, I do not care for, nor worry about what others think.  Because the truth is the truth.  So watch out for the folks in the shadows and talk to the drivers, they will tell you what is going on. 

Later...............

I hate to say this but back to the old drawing board.  I got F___ once more.  I leased on with  a company listed here on this post.   Can someone lead me the right direction please.  This is getting very pricey.
