The information below provides insight into how being a Lease-Purchase driver may meet your expected lifestyle, work into your long-term career plans, and provide the working environment you seek.
What is a Lease-Purchase Driver?
Lease-Purchase drivers (LPDs) are drivers who often have experience driving for a carrier or company but are interested in taking a step toward greater independence and eventually taking outright ownership of their equipment. Lease Purchase drivers have more control over work hours, jobs accepted, and routes driven than Company Drivers, but not as much control as Owner-Operators.
Carriers frequently offer lease purchase options to drivers. Under a Lease-Purchase arrangement, the carrier likely owns the truck but enters into an agreement with the driver in which the truck is leased to the driver for a fixed or variable fee (as specified in the least agreement). The driver pays the leasing fee, a portion of which goes to pay down the “principal” and a portion goes to an agreed upon interest rate. If the driver remains with the lease long enough, the full original value of the truck will be paid off, and the driver assumes ownership of the truck.
A driver exploring lease-purchase arrangement should research various carriers or company-specific information. They should compare the pros and cons of each, look closely at those that appear to best match their level of acceptable risk, their abilities to operate a business, their forecasted expenses, and their lifestyle.
What are some personal characteristics helpful for Lease-Purchase Drivers?
Lease-Purchase drivers will find that a blend of traits needed of Company Drivers and Owner Operators will serve them well as they take a step toward self-employment. Aside from the personal characteristics needed to be a good truck driver, lease-purchase drivers are also faced with the need for business savvy, accounting and bookkeeping knowledge, experience with taxes, and an ability to remain up to date with current and forecast trends in the freight transport industries.
