Celadon Trucking LEASE-LESS PURCHASE PROGRAM A FRAUD!!!! Indianapolis Indiana
*UPDATE Employee: Celadon Trucking and their L/P program..
*General Comment: Celadon does NOT care about their drivers
I worked for Celadon for 5 1/2 years , 2.5 as a company driver , the rest under the LEASE-LESS PURCHASE PROGRAM. As a company driver it was the best company to work for , decent miles and the vacation package is unmatched anywhere.As a company driver i even got to represent Celadon in the IMTA truck rodeo in 2005 , the excitement in this message ends here.
I decided to sign on in the Lease-less purchase program , for the first year it went great , everything went smooth , Celadon even helped me repair my used truck when it broke down, but in February of 2009 with only 11 months left to pay on the truck Celadon's O/O payroll dept (Amy) called me and said "oops we messed up and did'nt make your truck paymentS to the bank , what are YOU going to do about it?" P.S. they were obligated to make the payments for the driver.
This "oops" cost me $5500.00 plus , they claimed no responsibility to it and i had to double up the payments to try to catch up .Then the worst thing happened , i broke down back to back , and was only given 500-1500 miles a week prior to this , with no money on hand i asked Celadon to help , they denied me any help BUT DID OFFER ME ANOTHER TRUCK FOR ANOTHER 3 YEAR LEASE!!!.
The older broken truck would be sent back and the payments added to my new truck while the repo would still be on my record WHAT A DEAL!!!
sounds like and yup it was a scam , come to find out quite a few other drivers lost thier trucks in a similar fashion , also celadons accounting service ATBS out of Colorado informed me that Celadon wanted to ditch the finance company that sold the trucks to the drivers and start thier own , had to liquidate thier ties to make this happen.
In closing ask lots of questions , and get IT ALL!!! in writing I lost mine , DONT LOSE YOURS!!
el paso, Texas
