Riverside Transport Truck Driving Jobs

Riverside Transport’s lease program is unlike anything else in the industry. 

What makes them so special?

1) They give drivers the choice of which truck they want to lease.
2) They let drivers choose how they want to pay them back for their lease payment.
3) All of their lease drivers get a full service warranty for the lifetime of their lease.

Lease Payment Options:-

Option 1– Fixed lease – Every week the driver has a flat weekly payment.

Option 2 – Variable per mile lease – Riverside Transport’s Variable lease is what makes them unique. They set the truck payment as a prorated per mile charge. Drivers will only pay payments for the miles they use the truck. This ensures that you will never fall behind on payments because they did not get enough miles in a week. If a driver has 0 miles for the week then they would not have to pay anything that week in truck payments.

Full Service Warranty:-

Riverside Transport also offers a full service, 100%, bumper to bumper warranty on all of their equipment. This means that drivers will never again have to pay out of pocket for maintenance, oil changes, PM’s, or any repair bills while they are working towards paying the truck off.
