If you're going to tell the story you need to tell the truth. In the 4 weeks you were leased to Rocky Wells, you earned $11,825.37. You may have only brought home $1800 in settlements but that is because our company fronted you the money to purchase your tags, pay your insurance and heavy vehicle tax before you ever pulled the first load for us. You then abandoned our company trailer in KY and left us with the hassle and expense of getting it moved back to SC. You were provided a complete accounting of every penny and were treated more than fairly the enitre time you were with our company. Now that you have chosen to start this discussion attempting to slander our company on this forum, I will be more than happy to share your account statements with anyone who would like proof.

A lot of people think there going to get rich when they buy there own truck. The fact is that buying a truck is the cheapest part of starting out trucking. Ounce you get the plates, insurance, 2290, trailer, fuel, wages, etc. added up, it makes the truck purchase a very small piece of the pie.

Just for future reference as you found out the hard way. It takes a minimum of 15k to get your own truck road legal. that's paperwork not fuel or tires or labor. granted some brokers are bad but not everyone is. as far as yelling on the phone shake it off that's normal. Once the broker physically throughs rocks and things that's time run fast.

Have you guys ever heard of Penske? They rent tractors and if anything breaks down they send you a new one. You don't need to buy your own trucks and dish out all that money just rent them at Penske, or Ryder.
