good pre-purchase procedure when purchasing a used truck
We all know it's a considerable risk purchasing any used truck, one that should not be done with the least bit of carelessness... I mean, we all hear of bad stories that I feel, in hindsight, are preventable, that could be caught with a competent inspection.
So besides the inexpensive DOT inspection, which would still expose some of the potential issues...
What other kind of detailed inspection could one hire a good shop to perform that would expose a more accurate level of dependability of your new proposed rig?
Furthermore, how much would one spend for this type of service?
I can't imagine the amount of stress that would fall heavily on the damned sole that is caught in a bad spot. Can we lessen the risk with getting into an older truck?
I'm looking at getting my first rig of pre 02, either 14L or 12.7 s60, 13spd
Is this a good question?
