What is a factoring company in trucking?

A factoring company is one who buys your invoices and a good trucker for $50,000 per month, who he pays nothing on the rental of, but everything upfront. So the bill becomes $0 down, but your debt with the factoring company becomes $50k!

What trucking company has the best lease purchase program?

Many of the larger companies have aggressively pursued lease purchase auto financing and not only do they usually pricing competitively, but also make it easier to take advantage of. A lot of fleets can get 100% financing through little or no down payments, motivation dependent deals or even cash back if the customers plug in to the customer loyalty plans. Often these programs can offer newer truck that generate a higher amount of revenue or are more efficient when used for work purposes (meaning could earn more) compared to cash on the hood. Many companies offer shuttles to bring the sold vehicles back to their offices so maintenance can be performed more time straightening out any issues with vehicle at much lower prices too. Signing up for these programs lets you get 100% of value back in resale value versus 50% on a customer trade. Of course, this comes with risk, so for those higher risk/higher return makes heavy use of protective financing providers like SFA loans or even theft protection products etc which were left off my list to avoid confusion and because I don’t want them underwriting.

How to file a complaint against a trucking company?

Phone and email the FCC (from my computer). Most of the time voicemail is courteous and provides an estimated response time. Emails are usually provided as Quick Response Codes, from which I can glean some specifics about how to file a complaint. If both bombard me weekly, I’ll ask for their personnel records to pursue futher action on their end.

What trucking company pays the most per mile?

Tracking trucks the best cost $360-$450 a month. At that price point you get decent range and enough power to haul 35,000 pounds. Truck rentals are around $1,200-$1,500 a month so if your fleet includes two trucks you could be paying $3 per mile on truck rentals alone. Depending on where you live that could turn into roughly 3 cents per mile for trailer rental costs (there are no extra charges – that’s what happens with double trailers).
