WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING YOUR NEXT TRUCK

Choosing the right truck for your needs can sometimes feel daunting. Buying a truck is a large investment and there are so many options and variables to consider.

Here at Trucks Direct we want to make buying a truck as easy and pain free as possible. We know that making an informed decision can help you build a more profitable career in the Truck Industry, resulting in larger bottom line profits.

We’ve put together a guide that will help you make the right decision and give you all the key things to look out for.

The first step to determining the right truck for your needs is to ask yourself a few key questions

  • What type of loads will I be carrying?
  • How much do I need to carry?
  • What types of roads will I be driving on?
  • How much fuel do I think i’ll be using?

Your answers to these questions will help you define the kind of truck that will suit your needs. For example, selecting the right type of body for your truck will ensure that you aren’t buying a huge truck that is excessive for your needs, wasting fuel and costing you more than it should.

Weigh up the costs

Once you have worked out what type of truck is best for your operation along with the components it should have, the next step is to weigh up the costs.

Remember that the up front purchase cost might not be the biggest contributor to the cost of the truck over its whole life. Think about the other costs you will have to pay throughout its life. Operational and maintenance costs are important so ask the dealer how often you should service your truck and how much a standard service will cost.

It is also a good idea to get a couple of insurance quotes for the vehicles you are thinking about buying so you understand exactly what the difference is between models you are considering.
