How is RTI’s Lease Purchase Program different from what other companies are offering?
Riverside Transport has one of the most innovative lease purchase programs available. We allow our drivers to choose how they would like to pay for the truck. Drivers can decide between a fixed rate lease or a variable rate lease. In addition, Riverside transport offers a full service 100% bumper to bumper warranty on all of our lease trucks. With this program drivers will never have to pay for truck maintenance or repair bills when they occur. Lastly, we have equipped our entire fleet of lease trucks with APU’s to help keep our drivers fuel costs down.
What is a fixed rate lease?
A fixed rate lease is one of the ways a driver can choose to repay us for their lease truck. Every week the driver has a flat truck payment due. This truck payment is always due no matter what happens during the driver’s week. A fixed rate lease allows a driver to budget their income better because no matter what happens the driver will know how much of a truck payment they will have to make for that week.
How long are the leases for?
We lease all of our trucks for 48 to 66 months depending on the price of the truck. This allows us to keep our drivers payments low which in turn helps our driver increase their weekly profitability.
When do I make my first payment?
We do not require a truck payment the first week the driver is with us. Truck payments will start coming out during the second week.
Will the equipment I lease have an APU?
Riverside Transport has equipped all of our lease trucks with an auxiliary power units.
How long will I be out on the road?
Riverside Transport has a build your own home time policy. We recommend 1.5 days off for every week you stay out. Home time is based on the market where you live and how easy it is to find freight to get you there.
