At Edge of Town Auto in Buckner, MO, we service all kinds of trucks, young and old. If you’re in the market for a new or new-to-you truck, here’s some advice we encourage you to consider.
Buying new is expensive but has its advantages. When you buy new, you get a truck you don’t have to doubt the reliability of, and that has a warranty if something does break. New trucks also have cutting edge technology, better suspension components, and more powerful engines. With a commercial truck, buying new maybe your best option if the funds are available. You’ll have control over its lifetime of maintenance, which means you can make sure it lasts for hundreds of thousands of miles. It may be cheaper to maintain and keep one new truck for a decade than buy two or three used trucks over the same amount of time.
If your trucks don’t rack up miles like crazy, or you simply don’t want to shell out the money, buying used may be a better option. While there is more risk involved when buying used if you’re careful you can get a really great deal. Commercial trucks tend to be extremely reliable and each model already has an established reputation, so there’s already less risk than buying a used car. Make sure you look for a truck that has been well maintained, and that the seller has the documentation to prove it. Maintenance is the single most important factor in reliability and longevity. Ask to have the truck inspected at a shop you trust, to make sure there are no lurking issues that’ll cause you trouble down the road.
Whether you need an inspection on a potential buy, or maintenance on a truck you’ve had for years, Edge of Town Auto provides the quality service you’re looking for. Our expert mechanics are honest, efficient, and qualified, and will provide you excellent service, every time. Call or drop-in to Edge of Town Auto today, we'd love to work with you.
