Do you want fast, guaranteed payment, or would you rather take a risk at an auction? Do you want to sell your truck to a knowledgeable dealer right away, or do you want to field lots of calls and emails from potential Craigslist buyers? It’s all up to you.
Thanks to the power of the Internet, you don’t necessarily have to commit to a single option. You can post on multiple websites and advertising mediums. You can take your truck to an auction even while you’re running an ad. Or you can call up a dealer at any time and sell through them instead.
Consider what your priorities are for selling. Do you need to get trucks off your books fast? Are you holding out for a certain profit? Do you need help transporting a truck? Decide what is most important to you as a seller and go from there.
Remember: You can save a lot of leg work, time, expense, and energy when you sell through a dealer or business that is reputable and trustworthy. But online isn’t a bad place to start either. Take time to plan out your next steps, and it will save you hassle down the road.
The good news is that with so many options for selling your used semi truck, you can always try a different method if your first effort doesn’t pay off.
