Why You Should Purchased a Used Pickup Truck
Being such a huge investment, it is important to think through your purchase of a pickup truck. The most important decision you will have to make is whether you should buy a new vehicle or a used one. Even if you don’t realize it now, the choice you make here will have a very big impact on your purchase, including the price you pay and the model you eventually go for.
Here are some benefits of buying used pickup trucks from our tax-free New Hampshire dealership:
- You will save a ton of money
Whenever you see an advert for used trucks for sale, you are actually getting an offer to save up to half of your money. A new pickup truck is insanely expensive. If someone were to put up a shop for new small pickup trucks for sale, they would still cost much more than second-hand high-end models.
Vehicles lose a lot of their value in the first five years of use. Larger pickup trucks can even lose 50 percent of their value in this period. This is regardless of the state of the vehicle. If you buy used pickup trucks from our dealership instead, you will end up getting the same product for just a fraction of the cost. In addition, you don’t need to pay sales tax for the vehicles you purchase in our dealership, and this can add to the amount of money you save.
You can upgrade your chosen truck model
Since used pickup trucks are much cheaper than new ones, you will have the opportunity to step up your model. There is a wide array of pickup trucks in our dealership here in New Hampshire, and you can be sure to get a great offer on your pickup truck of choice.
You don’t have to live through the truck’s period of steep depreciation
New pickup trucks lose up to half their value in the first five years of use. In fact, more than 10 percent of the value of a vehicle is lost when you drive away from the car dealership. Just like SUV s, pickup trucks depreciate much faster than normal vehicles. The larger the pickup truck, the faster the rate of depreciation.
The good news is that you don’t have to go through such major losses. The used pickup trucks for sale in our dealership are already past the period of steep depreciation and as such, will give you value for your money. Beyond the first five years, the vehicle depreciates much more gradually.
Lower Insurance Rates
In addition to spending less money on the actual purchase of the vehicle, you will also spend less money on insurance for your vehicle. This only makes sense since a new car has higher value, and there is more to lose if anything happens to it. A used pickup truck is cheaper, and therefore there is less to lose in case of theft or damage. Since vehicle insurance is not optional, you might as well plan for it before you make your truck purchase.
Things to Consider When Purchasing a Used Pickup Truck
It is cheaper to maintain a gas pickup truck. · If you go for a diesel pickup truck, be sure to check for any previous repairs. If it has been repaired before, it might not be your best bet.
A truck with mileage of over 60,000 miles might not be the best option.
The dealer should offer a limited warranty for the smog system and the drive train, in case the original warranty has expired.
Of course, you should take a test drive that lasts for about 20 minutes. This is enough time to notice any issues with the pickup truck.
You should also do a background check on the vehicle.
