What to Look for When Buying a Big Rig
Commercial trucks are a major investment which is why one must carefully plan out the purchase. Not only must you consider how much you can afford to spend but how much it will cost in the future.
Start by writing down what you are looking for/need in a commercial truck. Conduct research before going to a dealer or buying used. Look at Kelley Blue Book to determine reasonable prices. Then set a budget for yourself and put aside the down payment.
When making your purchase, bring along a mechanic to act as a second set of eyes. This is important if you are buying used to ensure you catch any potential problems.
Once you have made your purchase, be sure to allocate a budget for maintenance. That includes fluids and parts. At First Motion Products, we provide reasonably priced commercial truck parts. For more information, please peruse our site.
