Commercial vehicles for sale are advertised in your regular newspaper and online on various social networking sites such as gumtree.com. It’s easy to get second hand vehicles for your business without having to pay a fortune for them. Whether you need trucks, vans or bakkies, a great way to find affordable used commercial vehicles is by looking at auctions. Often auctions sell repossessed vehicles which are in great condition at a fraction of their regular resale price. Banks, or lending companies, simply need to get their money back quickly and are thus inclined to sell the car for a low price.
It’s important when you look for commercial vehicles for sale that you don’t let the unreasonably low prices make you think that the car is fine. Cars at auctions are sold as is, which means that if you buy the car and you can’t get it out of the show room, that’s your bad luck. Very few insurers will help you to insure the car straight out of the repossessed line – it will need to be inspected to ensure that it has no major problems, engine damage or history of accidents. Second hand cars can be a pleasure but they can also be a giant pain in the backside. There is no way to guarantee that your trucks, vans or bakkies will be in good working condition, or that they will be able to do what you need to. Then again, you have the same risk with most new vehicles as well. That’s life!
If you need to buy cars, trucks, vans or bakkies and you need a low price then keep an eye out for auction adverts. Sometimes you can get your whole fleet of vehicles for the price on only one or two. It can be an incredible deal, or even just slightly below average. So if you keep your eyes out in the papers you’ll easily find commercial vehicles for sale in Cape Town, Gauteng, Durban, or where ever else you may be located in South Africa.
