PIB TIP: FINANCING YOUR TRUCK. Give yourself plenty of time to shop for a truck and seek favorable financing. Visit dealers and ask questions. Know what risk you present for a potential lender.

The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
