Second hand Truck
Buying a new truck can cost literally hundreds of thousands of pounds, but if you want to be a haulage driver and make serious money from trucking then owning your own truck is the right way to go.
Buying a second hand truck will obviously save you a large amount of money, most trucks are built to last a long time, there are still some army trucks on the road (not in service) that are over 50 years old.
Many haulage firms have their own trucks that employees drive which is the best way to get into the trucking movement.
Like with many goods a second hand Truck can probably be found on ebay and better still you can register free.
Truck Buying Tips
- Genrally the older the Truck the cheaper the insurance costs are
- Check the wheel arches and the bottom of doors for signs of rust (bubbles under the paintwork) especially on older cars
- Ensure you complete the buyer section of the vehicle registration document and forward this as soon as possible after purchasing your Truck.
- Check the chassis number matches that on the engine and registration document
- Check what motor oil and fuel the Truck uses.
- Ensure the seller completes the sales section of the vehicle registration document.
- Get insurance quotes from multiple organisations before even looking at or bidding on a Truck, if you can't afford the insurance you can't afford the Truck.
