Personally, I think this is one of those situations where although it sounds great in theory, in practice it might be less desirable. I might consider borrowing a truck from a friend for a day, if mine broke down, but never on a long-term basis. I can see the possibility of all the issues raised by others, plus a few more. My advice? Thank your employee/friend profusely for his offer, and politely decline. If you can't afford another truck right now, then now is not the time to expand. Just my opinion. Good luck.
