Used vs. New Cost Savings Calculator

Why should I buy used?”

Buying a used semi-trailer isn’t right for everyone—but it could be for you.

Although new trucks cost less to operate and maintain, the initial purchase price, F.E.T., and higher insurance costs of that new semi-trailer means higher initial investment and higher cost per mile. When you consider all operating costs at a high level (maintenance, fuel, taxes, insurance and depreciation) you can significantly reduce the cost of ownership with the purchase of used equipment!
