Every semi’s make, model, and year is different. Ask experienced truckers and mechanics to recommend which trucks are great deals and which should be avoided. In addition, there are a number of forums that can help narrow your search.
When you go to see it, you or a trusted mechanic should inspect it thoroughly.
Look for rust, good seals on doors and windows, operating lights, oil leaks, pristine brakes, smoke, strange noises, good tires with a record of good pressure and regular full oil changes, and more. While talking to a used semi dealer, find out whether the truck was a trade-in or if it came from a fleet. Ask for maintenance records and receipts for any work that was performed on the semi prior to it being put for sale.
