Here is a short list of things you should inspect before you purchase a used truck: Every carrier needs insurance to protect the business from unexpected financial burdens.
If you have enough funds and decide to purchase your own assets, it’s always better to go for quality over price—especially when it comes to vehicles.
Paying a higher price for a brand new truck may mean fewer repairs, maintenance, and downtimes that may hurt your fleet’s profitability.
The same can be said for second-hand units that are well-maintained and are from reputable manufacturers.
Use a Pre-Employment Screening Program to view a prospective driver’s crash data for the last five years and roadside inspections for the last three years.
For driver retention, also focus on driver happiness and fulfillment instead of just focusing on cash-based incentives.
