For your convenience there are a lot of online platforms, both in the United States and abroad, where you can easily get access to various options. Some of the examples of them are RaceCarsDirect (which is more specialized and which we will cover later), TrucksNL, TrucksCorner, Tradus and many others where you can find car transporter trucks for sale.

Using search filters

First of all, before looking for a particular car transporter truck for sale, you need to consider the current and future needs. It’s not practical to purchase a truck without thinking about upcoming raises in demand you may have or, vice versa, the orientation on small business. By the way, not only professional transportation companies can be interested in buying a truck car transporter for sale but also individuals with their specific way of life or the business they have.

As soon as you have a better understanding of what you are expecting in the near future (how many cars you are planning to transport, of what type, for how long distance and others), you can use a very useful tool on every online platform of car transport trucks for sale – filter. If you know what particular make and model you need, you can simply insert it into the appropriate field. But for a better picture it’s always recommended to choose not a particular make or model but the main criteria of the choice. The examples of them are power (minimum or maximum), mileage, maximum permitted laden weight, authorized gross vehicle weight, sundry or special equipment etc. You may not be aware of some rare brands or models and it will be a pity if because of a narrow mindset you will use a great option of the car transporter to purchase. In regards to the brands of the car transporters, the most common and popular are Mercedes-Benz, Iveco, Peterbilt, SCANIA, Renault, Volkswagen, Volvo and a lot more.

Axle configuration and the total number of the axles consist of the essential technical characteristics of the potential purchase. If you are not very sure about the differences between different models it’s always better to ask than to buy a wrong one.

Location is also pretty important but cannot be considered as a crucial search criterion. Of course, it can be much easier to pick up the truck or to arrange its delivery throughout the same state, but this can significantly cut the possibilities from other states. The delivery possibility should also be considered and most sellers provide this information in the advertisement.

Considering a particular offer

As soon as you find something attractive, it’s time to take a closer look to the details. And pictures of the transporter are one of the most essential parts, especially if you are planning to arrange the delivery from some remote state. You should be able to see the car transporter from all the sides, and if there are some doubts, the seller should provide you with a better visibility.

There should be some other indicators of the vehicle you are planning to purchase:

  • The condition of the vehicle. You need to carefully check if the transporter is new or used, and in the second case if it has any serious problems or damages. There is nothing worse to buy a vehicle the repairing of which will cost even more than the original price;
  • Engine and fuel type can play a significant role, especially if you have strict requirements in this regard;
  • Year. Like the make and model, this characteristic will provide you with the most accurate basic information about the car transporter.

Contact details of the seller will allow you to discuss with him any additional information you may be interested in such as if the vehicle was involved in accidents and if there are some improvements and adjustments made.

Warranty is also one of the most important points to consider when choosing a particular variant. You need to be sure that the warranty period is enough, especially when we are talking about the used car transporters. One more way to protect yourself as a buyer is to apply for the insurance which can be arranged within the seller’s contract or separately. The main idea here is that you need to make sure the vehicle will be in a good and running condition for the estimated period of time after purchasing.
