Determine Price and Function before Beginning the Search
Here are the basic questions to ask when buying your next truck:
- How much do you wish to spend? Several factors determine your budget, including the options you need or want, and whether leasing instead of purchasing is a consideration. Your Diamond Mitsubishi Fuso representative can help you set reasonable financial parameters before you begin looking. Our dealership has a sizable inventory of trucks at our disposal, and we offer competitive prices on all our vehicles.
- What do you plan to haul? Your truck must have the capacity to carry the cargo you most commonly haul. A flatbed truck, for example, is preferable over an enclosed vehicle such as a box truck for transporting large, bulky items, or loaded pallets.
- How will stock be loaded and unloaded? If you use forklifts to handle cargo, a truck with strong, durable floors is required. You should install liftgates if loading or unloading occurs on the street rather than at a loading dock. Convenient door locations are also important.
- Will the vehicle have multiple uses? Choosing appropriate options, such as lift gates, load bars or tie rings, can double the usefulness of your truck. Diamond Mitsubishi Fuso’s service department often customizes our clients’ vehicles for added practicality.
