If you're a heavy-duty truck driver, then a semi-trailer is just a fact of life for you. And having a good-quality semi-trailer is important to the success and efficiency of your work. So, when you're shopping for them, you'll want to take a number of factors into account, including the overall cost. A great way to shop for a semi-trailer on a budget is to buy it used.
Here in Houston, Trailers of Texas is your local semi-trailer dealer, so we've compiled this list of tips for purchasing a used semi-trailer to help you with your shopping process.
Whether you're talking with the helpful staff here at Trailers of Texas or to a private seller, you'll want to bring some questions to ask about used semi-trailers in order to learn more about them before you put down your hard-earned cash. You'll want to figure out if the seller is an independent owner or a broker and ask why they're selling the trailer, since mechanical or technical issues could be a deterrent. You'll also want to know whether the used semi-trailer has been in a traffic accident or suffered some sort of impact.
Get as much information about the model as you can, including a current safety inspection certificate and a complete service record. That way, you'll know what maintenance has been performed on the trailer and when it occurred. Verify the VIN as well. Any seller who is reluctant to answer your questions or seems like they're not providing you with enough information should be avoided. That's why it's best to go with a reputable dealer like Trailers of Texas, because we'll have all the information you need to make a confident buying decision.
When shopping for a used semi-trailer, it's also helpful to understand your own needs, like how long it should be, what material it's constructed from, what features it has and how much weight it's capable of hauling. You'll also want to establish a firm budget so you don't go overboard and spend too much. Make sure to include maintenance, insurance and registration costs in your budget when you plan it.
