“I have driven for three other otr companies. Jim Palmer is the best company I have driven for. They treat the drivers with respect, they want the drivers to run legal, and If I have a problem, they work with me to get it solved. Many companies talk about being one big family, but at Jim Palmer I feel they are my extended family.”

Lease Purchase

No money down. No credit checks. Walk away, no penalty lease. Our program is in house, not through a third party. We build these programs for you to succeed. Average paychecks every week range from $1,200 to $1,500!!

Lease drivers earn 70% of the load revenue and 100% of the fuel surcharge per load. We take a lot of pride in helping our drivers understand the business and making sure they're prepared to be successful in this business prior to signing onto a lease. Due to our business relationships, Jim Palmer Trucking lease operators have access to benefits such as nationwide fuel and tire discounts, and weekly settlements.

Our tractors are low mileage, practically brand new (nothing older than 2015), affordable, safe, dependable, and fuel efficient. Three year and five year terms are available.
