CRST Malone is offering a lease purchase program and a sign-on bonus for new owner-operators. Under the new program, lease-purchase payments can be as low as $200 a week with $0 down for trucks that are three years old, the company says. Lease purchase drivers now also receive 100 percent of fuel surcharge and 75 percent of gross line haul average.
Through mid-March, all new CRST Malone owner-operators will receive a $250 sign-on bonus and will be eligible for up to $750 towards fuel for their first eight weeks with the company. Owner-operators are also eligible to receive an additional $250 if they bring their own flatbed trailer or securement equipment.
