It’s no secret that Sydney love their trucks.

As one of the most versatile modes of transport, these vehicles contribute significantly to our country’s economy. In fact, there are more small and medium-duty trucks on Sydney roads than ever, especially as businesses start to move away from the common light commercial Utes and vans in favour of the efficiencies a truck can provide for the business.

However, for any business, buying a truck is a large commitment and a significant financial investment. Hence, it is important to keep in mind some key factors before handing over your hard-earned cash.

Where should you start when buying a used truck in Sydney?

For first-time truck buyers, the process and experience of purchasing a truck in Sydney can be daunting and overwhelming. A good starting point will be to prepare yourself with sufficient background information and knowledge about trucks to gain an understanding of how it will best suit your business and/or lifestyle needs.

From engine size to passenger capacity and drive performance, there are many factors that contribute to deciding which is the most appropriate and best truck to buy.

For existing truck owners looking at buying a new truck in Sydney, considerations would generally revolve around improving the benchmark performance of their current truck or fleet. Especially if you’re a business owner with a bottom line to protect, here are some initial foundational questions to ask yourself before you chat with Motorfit Sydney:

  • What are your long-term maintenance costs?
  • How much are your current trucks costing you in fuel?
  • If you’re completing in-house servicing, how difficult or easy have new parts been to source, procure and replace?
  • How appropriate are the truck/s for the current work tasks your business carries out?

Research matters

Motorfit Sydney is more than happy to assist in any information you need to obtain before starting the truck-buying process, no matter the scope of your truck knowledge. But if you are keen to know more and be better informed before heading to Motorfit Sydney, it is a great practice to do some thorough research as part of the procurement process.

Speak to contacts who drive and own trucks, ask them about what’s involved in the truck’s long-term and daily maintenance, get an idea of cost and performance. Do plenty of research online and read through buyer reviews of similar models you are interested in buying.

This may seem like quite a large amount of work, but after all, buying a used truck in Sydney is a significant outlay and being specified with the wrong product can cost your business greatly in the future.

Ask the experts at Motorfit Sydney

Despite our best efforts at carrying out our own truck research, it is sometimes difficult to know where to begin and what features to keep in mind when considering buying a truck in Sydney. The next logical step would be to approach the sales representatives at Motorfit Sydney for their expertise on the matter. Our team is experienced in the field and can help you in obtaining knowledge on anything you need to know about the truck you are considering buying in Sydney.

But this comes with a new set of queries – what questions should you be asking? Here is a general list of questions that are great for learning more about the vehicle you are purchasing.

  • What licencing is needed for this model?
  • What are my warranty, after sales and servicing options?
  • What is the transmission type and will it suit my needs?
  • Will it meet my payload requirements?
  • Will it provide me the torque and power I need for my daily operations and tasks?
  • What about resale value?
  • Could you provide me with an idea of whole-of-life costs?

Have an open mind

When you do walk into Motorfit Sydney, bear in mind that despite extensive research, the truck you initially had in mind might be completely different from the truck you end up purchasing at Motorfit Sydney.

Therefore, it’s important to approach this procedure with an open mind; be sure to be curious and ask your dealer pre-planned questions based on your research and requirements. After all, our experienced team at Motorfit Sydney are here to assist you and ensure your truck buying process is as smooth and efficient as possible.
