If your company has recently found the need to rent a small box truck to haul an oversize delivery more than a few times in the past year, it is probably the right time to consider upgrading to a box truck. Here are the issues you need to consider before increasing your transportation capacity:
Look at how the needs of your clientele have changed
Consider how many times the company has had to make repeat trips to bring goods to the facility because the cargo van is not big enough
Determine if your company has regularly needed to deliver or pick up items that are too large or too bulky for your cargo van
Experienced commercial box truck dealers can help you look at these concerns and help to meet the transportation needs of your expanding business.
When you sit down with the commercial box truck dealer, you should be prepared to look at what your company needs in a truck. Small businesses can benefit the most from an upgrade of their hauling vehicle. Going from a simple cargo van to a larger commercial box truck allows for businesses to plan expansion strategies. Again, an experienced dealer can help you answer these questions:
What size truck would handle my company’s current hauling needs?
What size truck would handle my company’s plans for expansion over the next 2 to 5 years?
What are the service and maintenance requirements going to be?
When you are ready to upgrade or replace your commercial truck, the dealership should:
Have enough inventory
Answer all your questions
Have the ability to meet service and maintenance requirements
Have transparency with all maintenance and service records
Experienced commercial box truck dealers will provide you will all the information you need to feel secure in making decisions around your company’s transportation needs.
