It can be hard to find a used truck for your commercial driving business. Other than going to the dealership, many people don’t even know where to start.
Here are some places that you should look for your next truck.
Reputable dealers are often your best bet. Though many worry that dealerships charge too much for their used trucks, the truth is that they are often the best place to buy them. Not only do they have financing available, but they may also have a warranty.
Many people like to buy trucks from companies that have a fleet of them. They often sell their used ones in order to buy more current models, allowing you the chance to grab one of them. These are usually well-taken care of, though some drivers can be better rough on them.
Some like to buy trucks from owner-operators. They can sometimes be the only owner, making it really easy to find out about the maintenance. However, if the owner only has one truck, they might not have had the time (and money) to maintain it properly.
While some people find trucks on sites like Craigslist, the truth is that your best bet is going to be a dealership. Not only do they offer financing, but you might also be able to get a warranty until you learn the truck better. Another good option is going through a fleet company. These companies upgrade their vehicles regularly so they often have some trucks for sale. You might also be able to find one from an owner-operator. If you find one that was well taken care of, you might be able to get the deal that you were looking for!
