This year we were approached by Lone Mountain Truck Leasing. They had heard about Trucker Charity and were very interested in helping but didn't quite know in what capacity. When we forge these partnerships we want to give our sponsors a lot of bang for their buck to show the appreciation for their support. Beings that we had formed a trucking side of the charity to help in our educational mission (TCI Transport) we have 3 huge ways of giving that bang. This year at MATS we were able to show off this bang, a 53’ rolling bill board, on one of TCI Transport’s trailers. Lone Mountain Leasing out of Pacific Junction, Ia has generously signed on to fund Trucker Charity with a monthly donation and has wrapped one of our trailers with their logo and information to solidify the partnership. Thanks to their generous monthly donation we will be able to continue on our mission of Get’n them safe, Get’n them fed and Get’n them home and help more drivers and their families in need. Lone Mountain Truck Leasing is a true leasing company which goes by more than your “I love debt score” (credit score). They take into account your good work history at a greater level than credit score. They provide the truck, you provide the carrier that you want to lease to. With Lone Mountain you’re not in a lease with the same company that controls your freight lanes. Lone Mountain allows you to take the truck off site to a mechanic of your choice to have it checked out before you sign the dotted line. They have some great equipment to offer someone looking to jump over to the O/O side of the industry as well as for those looking to replace some tired equipment.
We have experienced great interest in them while the charity truck stops at fuel stops and shippers/receivers. Tony Hamilton has all the information with him and will be glad to explain how they work. So if you see a giant Peterbilt jumping off of a trailer coming right at you, stop Tony and get the low down.
