QUICK LIST TO PURCHASING A USED SEMI

  • First, determine your truck requirements like what loads will you be hauling
  • Figure out your budget and whether you can afford to pay cash or you may have to finance all or part of the semi truck purchase.
  • Once you have the above 2 items you can begin to narrow down your options
  • Then when you find a few good examples that will suit your needs. Do your due diligence by finding all the information you can on the big rigs to include the trucks history and also and more importantly its current condition.
  • Determine your insurance needs and any and all licenses that may be required
  • If you will be an owner-operator you need to begin on the right foot with your taxes as YOU will be responsible solely for that part of your new trucking business.

DIESEL RIGS are made nowadays to get a millions of miles or more. So the current mileage is very important since at some point you will need an inframe (complete overhaul of the drivetrain) or to replace the drivetrain to include the engine, transmission etc.

Factor this in to your choices once you narrow them down! You may get a great deal on a truck that needs updating or service by doing the work yourself or if you have a close buddy that is a diesel mechanic. Dont rule any rigs out because of that. You can have a really nice rig if you can work on it yourself initially. And of course we are always here to help you with your DIESEL PARTS NEEDS!
