Lease Purchase/Company Trucks
Lease purchasing is a very important priority at ELS, and is in fact what we built our success on initially. However, we outfit our company guys just the same! Below is a brief outline and description of what we have available.
Trucks: We feature 2013, 2014 and 2015 Freightliner Coronado glider kits that are built right here in our backyard in Hope Mills, NC. Everything on the trucks is brand new, less the engine and transmission; Detroit has furnished us with 2008 Series 60 motors, and Eaton has done the same with their 10-speed re-manned transmission. Our goal was to capture the owner-operator customized look with the chrome specs on the outside, wood-lined interior on the inside (and refrigerators!), paired with the practicality and simplicity any operator would want on the inner workings of the truck. Couple those with a brand new Thermo-King Tripac Evolution and a new headache rack, your truck will come with everything you will need to start working immediately. It is a true “turn-key “deal.
Direct Cost Lease: When we were searching for the right lease program we were having trouble finding companies who offered a DIRECT COST LEASE. It just made sense to us to charge the driver basically what it cost us. It’s a simple concept that is just not followed by many companies.
Leasing Advantage: One of the biggest advantages to leasing is that it gives you the opportunity to own your own truck and business. Leasing is not easy; it requires not only diligence but punctuality as well. Its probably one of the harder things you will ever under go in your trucking career. With hard work and determination you can succeed and be a part of a select few of trucking professionals that own their trucks and are true owner operators.
We have the ability to fully equip you for any type of freight you may encounter with us. We feature Kynedine equipment; anything from our chains and binders down to edge and corner protectors. We feature a lightweight, 3 piece tarp system with 8 foot drops that can cover just about anything. We are also beginning to institute “parachute tarps’ into our fleet which are even lighter than our 3 piece sets, and while these tarps can be punctured, those punctures will not spread at all due to the type of material they consist of.
We have a variety of trailers available for rental. They include both 48’ and 53’ combo flatbeds (from Utility), as well as a vast selection of 48’ and 53’ all-aluminum flatbeds (featuring MAC and Benson). Our equipment is modern and lightweight, and incorporates the newest trends and technology to help you be as profitable as possible. The trailers in our fleet are from 2005 to 2015 with the price increasing with the later trailer models.
