Why It’s Better to Buy A Used Truck

Posted at Thu, Jan 26, 2017 2:30 PM

Used trucks are our speciality at Tim’s Truck Capital and Auto Sales. We have an extensive inventory of used trucks and are also one of the best car dealerships in New Hampshire.

Do you know some of the many advantages of buying a pre-owned pickup over a high-priced new model? And do you know what you should look for when buying a used truck? Here are some of our favorite reasons for buying a used truck and our tips for getting just the right truck for you.

More choice: Did you know there are more than three times as many pre-owned trucks than new trucks on the market today? So,you’ve got lots of choices. At #TimsTruckCapital you can choose from our large and varied inventory of used trucks. Please remember that if we don’t have what you are looking for, tell us! We will find it for you.

Avoid rapid depreciation: Did you know that new models can lose half their value in the first two to three years? Therefore, it’s important to make a large enough down payment so you don’t end up owing more than the truck is worth. This is one of the most significant advantages of buying a used truck over a new one.

What to look for: Try to find one that’s just a few years old. Pickup trucks can last a long time, so you’re making a great investment over the long term. A used truck will have already taken big hit on depreciation and it will still have lots of life left. You might not know that a well-maintained modern pickup truck can perform well for 200,000 miles or longer. This is especially true of diesel engine trucks. You won’t have the same rust problems that plagued truck owners in the past. Thanks to solid-state electronics, there’s not such a need for frequent tune-ups.

Towing capacity: If you need a used pickup truck to tow a trailer, it’s important to know the truck's towing capacity (GVWR and tongue weight). In addition to engine power, important considerations include cab and bed size, wheelbase length, rear axle ratio and whether or not the truck has a factory-towing package.

Focus on reliability: Regardless of reviews, it’s important to keep in mind that every used truck is unique. We recommend you have a pre-purchase inspection even on a truck with a high reliability rating. It's also recommended to get the truck inspected by a professional mechanic. Since trucks are workhorses, it is also important to look for signs of extreme wear and past uses, such as off-road driving or large-trailer towing. We at Tim’s Truck Capital are careful to select the best used trucks available.
