Trucks are a bit harder to find than most other consumer vehicles, especially those you can get for a bargain. Most dealers tend to stay away from them for two reasons. Reason number one: used trucks have a very niche market, and buyers are limited to transporters and companies that use heavy-duty machinery. Reason number two: trucks take up a lot of space. Dealers have to choose carefully which vehicles they put out on the floor; the faster a vehicle leaves the lot the sooner they can put another one in its place and get on with their truck sales in Brisbane.
Looking for a quality used truck is best left to those who understand these vehicles better. Fortunately, you can still get some help online. For example, you can check the website of the Truck Industry Council for information and suggestions. When you’re ready to get a used truck, try different methods for buying one. Visit different used car and truck lots, or join auctions. Pickles.com.au is a good place to start if you’re new to bidding. Check out every truck you shortlist before bidding on any of them.
