Used Dump Trucks Verses New

 

The construction business can be capital-intensive for vehicles such as dump trucks.

Which is why most construction companies with a limited amount of capital, manage their finances in a creative way . For instance, they buy used dump trucks instead of buying new ones.

The company's dump trucks are used to transport and deposit large quantities of materials and huge objects on jobs they have acquired. Nowadays, most dump trucks are automated which makes it easy for just the driver to handle the dumping work .

Such vehicles are essential to the company, they virtually are the business. But, the capital investment for dump trucks is expensive , and buying new takes a long time to recoup their cost.

So, buying brand new dump trucks can tie up a great deal of capital expense. And, especially in today's economic climate , such expenditure is just not feasible and would impact on the cash flow and operations of the business.

So, what options are open to the shrewed business owner ?

They buy good used dump trucks for the business, and retain enough banked cash to tide them over until the next job payments come in.

Costs
New dump trucks are very expensive. Vehicles could cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars, and for a very large
heavy dump truck, you could be looking at costs in the millions.

Some used dump trucks can be bought for around $3,500, depending on the type, functions and size of truck. At the other end of the scale, a set of tires for a large truck could cost around $30,000. Sometimes, it could make more economical sense to buy a used dump truck rather than to buy a new set of tires.

Buying Tips
Purchasing used dump trucks could help out with any temporary cash-flow problems of the business, but the opposite is true if you are not cautious. So, here are some tips for buying used trucks.

A visual inspection may not be good enough. You should always try out the vehicle. Test all of its functions by test driving and running it through its paces .

After the test drive and functions is a good time to check for any leaks. When a vehicle has just been operating is when these types of defects tend to show up. Check the valves and hoses. Try to listen to the truck when it is running for some time. Notice any unusual smells like burning oil or shorted circuits. If the vehicle is newly-painted, check for hidden rust patches .

Do all the controls work properly? Do the hydraulics sound right? Check the control display - is it fully functional? Expect modest defects in a used dump truck, that's part of the reason for the low price. Anything you find wrong that the seller has not revealed to you - use it to negotiate on price.

In the final analysis, you have to consider the pro's and con's of buying used dump trucks from either reputable dealers or from owners. You can get warranties from dealers, but not owners. However, if buying from an owner, you can find out the history of the vehicle, and expect to pay a far lower price than at dealers.
