GREEN BAY, Wis. — Getting financing in today’s economic climate can seem daunting for drivers who want to be their own boss. That’s why Schneider National has introduced a financing program to reduce the barriers for drivers looking to become owner-operators for the first time, the company says.

Offered in addition to existing Schneider financing programs, the No Credit Check Smart Start Lease Purchase program presents a special, no-money-down, low-monthly-payment leasing option on late-model, gently used trucks that are spec’d for owner-operators and include access to a nationwide maintenance program, according to the company. Through the No Credit Check Smart Start Lease Purchase program, applicants will not be subject to a credit check to obtain the lease.

The new No Credit Check Smart Start Lease Purchase program is offered by Schneider Finance, a truck-financing affiliate of Schneider National.

“It’s a very tight credit environment, and just because some individuals can’t secure traditional financing doesn’t mean they aren’t qualified from an experience level,” said Steve Crear, general manager, Schneider Finance. “The Smart Start Program offers the no-credit-check option to give new owner-operators peace of mind, knowing they can still pursue a great career opportunity.”

With a variety of financing packages designed to meet almost every credit situation, Schneider Finance can set up owner-operators with the equipment and financing plans they need to be successful small business owners. Schneider Finance offers a wide range of new and gently used trucks that are spec’d for owner-operators. All trucks also include auxiliary power units for no-idle cooling and heating to control fuel costs and maximize comfort.

“When an experienced driver is considering a new career or resuming a former career as an owner-operator, Schneider Finance takes the time to understand the entire story,” said Crear. “Many people experience bumps along the road when it comes to credit history. Schneider National has been around for 75 years, so we understand what it really takes for an owner-operator to be successful.”

Schneider National has the largest base of freight in the industry, providing owner-operators consistent weekly miles and settlements, according to the carrier. Owner-operators who lease with Schneider National have access to the resources they need to lower their operating costs, such as the Purchase Power program that allows drivers to leverage Schneider’s big-company buying power for fuel, maintenance, tires, insurance and more. Schneider owner-operators also have access to the company’s 22 Operating Centers, which offer low-cost food, laundry facilities, Wi-Fi access, fuel and other services. Experienced owner-operators can choose from Schneider National’s percentage or mileage-based lease options (new owner-operators are typically offered the mileage-based lease option only).
