Important Things to Consider When Buying A Used Refrigerated Vehicle

Buying a used refrigerated vehicle can be a great next step for your business. Whether you’re transporting fresh fruits, meat, frozen food or flowers, owning a refrigerated vehicle can give you great flexibility. 

Before you buy a used refrigerated vehicle, there are a few important things to consider. Read our top tips to make sure you buy a quality truck that suits your needs, interests and budget. 

Shop Around

When buying a used refrigerated vehicle, take the time to shop around for the best deal. There are many used trucks for sale in Brisbane, but not all of the same quality. 

Remember that the cheapest option may not be the best, because it’s likely to be old and worn out. Think about value for money, an unreliable truck that needs lots of repairs isn’t going to add much value to  your business. 

Stick to Budget

As a business owner, it’s important to set a budget for new purchases and stick to it. After the initial purchase of the truck, you will still need to pay for insurance, registration, fuel, servicing and mechanical repairs. 

If you find that buying a truck is too expensive, then look into options for short and long term hire

Check the Refrigeration System

Before you purchase a used refrigerated vehicle, it’s essential to check that all its refrigeration systems are still functioning smoothly. If the truck is old and outdated, its refrigeration technology may not always work effectively. Imagine arriving at your destination, only to find your load of strawberries has gone off…

Choose the Right Size

Another aspect to consider when buying a truck is what size you need. There’s no use having way too much space or having to cram everything in and risk damaging your goods. Before buying a truck, make sure to check its maximum load capacity.
