Used Tipper Trucks: Advantages and Major Considerations

Updated on January 10, 2016

Among the impressive variety of trucks, there is the one, which stands out in the crowd and enjoys fantastic popularity with the representatives of different businesses, especially those that focus on building and construction. The vehicle we are talking about is known as a tipper truck. Consisting of an open-top body and a tipper (chassis used in heavy duty vehicles), these trucks are basically used for transporting heavy loads, carrying stones, soil, crushed rock and other materials that are needed for the construction purposes. No wonder there is a great demand for these vehicles nowadays.

When it comes to opting for a tipper truck, the cost issue proves to be of vital importance. This is because the purchase of this vehicle is associated not only with the price of the truck itself, but also with the maintenance and repair expenses, spare parts, insurance issues etc. Therefore, it makes sense to find out the advantages and major characteristics of used trucks to help people make the best choice.

Advantages of Used Tipper Trucks

Buying a used truck does not necessarily mean buying a vehicle of poor quality, which will require increased maintenance and repair expenses. This mainly depends upon the condition of the vehicle you are going to opt for, the amount of time it has been in use, the mileage and lots of other aspects. If you are lucky to get the truck that meets your needs and features perfect working condition, then you will be able to save quite a substantial sum of money. This is because used tipper trucks are almost 50% cheaper as compared to new vehicles of this type. As a result, you will avail more chances to manage your finance with regard to your current needs.

It is reported that a new tripper truck may cost you over $130000-$150000, while the price of the used one is not likely to be higher than $30000-$40000 depending upon the characteristics and the model of the vehicle. The economy is obvious.

A Dealer or a Private Owner: What Option to Go For?

Nowadays, it is possible to buy used tipper trucks both from the dealerships and the private owners. Which option is safer? What you should think about is the warranty of the truck you are going to buy. It goes without saying that private owners are not willing to offer warranties for the vehicles they sell just because they do not wish to be responsible for the sold trucks afterwards. The same cannot be said about dealerships, most of which offer warranties for the vehicles they sell. This means that if you face any mechanical or other problem after you buy the tipper truck, you can address the dealer to solve it. Taking into account the fact that the repair of the used tipper truck may be quite costly and stressful, it makes sense to buy the vehicle from the reputable dealer, even though this may cost you a bit more as well.

Aspects to Consider Before Purchasing a Truck

The purchase of a truck is a serious challenge sometimes and, thus, has to be analyzed from different points of view. Listed below are the most important things you should check before adopting the final decision:

  • The documents, where the date of manufacture and the major characteristics of the truck are mentioned
  • The signs of wear and tear, including dents, rust, corrosion etc.
  • The condition of the vehicle, which involves the general look and the working condition. Take your time to listen to the hydraulic system functioning and pay special attention to any sounds or other signs that seem unusual and make you concerned.

These are the major issues you should take into account when choosing a used tipper truck. If you are lucky to make the right choice, this will help save your money and enhance your business performance.
