How to buy a Healthy Pre-Owned Truck?

If you are in the trucking industry, then you should know that it’s not always a good choice to buy a new truck.  You will have to pay more and not to mention, bear the same maintenance costs. The extra amount that you pay for the new truck, you could invest that in your business. Doesn’t that sound like a better idea? But now you must be thinking that if I don’t buy a new truck that that means I would have to look in pre-owned options. You might be thinking that what if you end up with a bad truck and have to pay even more in repairs. Don’t worry, we are here to help. We will tell you how to check a truck before you purchase it, whether it’s new or pre-owned.

There are three things that you would have to keep in mind

These are: 

  • Physical issues: You can check this by asking for the maintenance record for the truck and go through it. If you find it okay then go on to the next set of checks, if not, then you can stop right there.
  • Rusting issues:  Trucks can pick up a good amount of rust over the years and that can result in a lot of problems. It makes it more susceptible to risk and thus putting the driver’s life at risk. So, you will have to check for rust especially in the underbody of the truck. If any parts are beyond repair, you can move on to the next truck.
  • Transmission problems and leaking issues:  Transmission repairs are very expensive so you don’t want a truck with bad transmissions. Also, when you checking the vehicle, look for leakage as well.
