Trucks are built to withstand the toughest of elements, and engineered to take on hard jobs, day in and day out. We know your biggest concern with buying a used vehicle is how reliable will the vehicle be and how long can you depend on it for? With a truck you don’t have to have that worry, it was built for this, durable and reliable options that can withstand a ton of wear and tear and still remain tough, to haul and tackle off-road conditions for years to come.

We’ve all seen those exorbitant sticker prices for brand-new pickups, and you can’t be blamed for not wanting to spend that. That still doesn’t satiate your want for that pickup, though, and a used truck helps you better afford one, at a much lesser price. Even recent models from a few years ago come at greatly reduced prices, and when buying from the quality of Davey Auto Sales you’ll buy a pre-owned option and swear it’s like-new.

Loaded Features

Not only are trucks expensive just on their base level, but so are all the features and packages able to be added on. That’s one of the beauties of driving a pickup, all of the available accessories and features able to be upgraded. Whether it’s saving money on the added features that already come on the used truck, or having that extra money due to its cheaper price that you can now add-on what you please, a truck comes with a ton of upgrade options. Whether for safety, convenience, off-roading or more, take advantage of a used truck and your ability to easily get the features you want at a great price.

Less Depreciation

You’ll save right off the bat when buying a used pickup, but so will you into the future. Purchasing a used truck is an investment, and though depreciation hits every vehicle, you’re getting a vehicle that has already taken its largest hit even before you buy it as yours. Since there’s so many different options of trucks, and with their incredible reliability, you’ll still be able to maintain a pre-owned truck that won’t lose a lot of its value should you want to resell it.

Know What You'll Use

We often can’t help ourselves from gravitating toward the biggest and the best, and that’s especially true when it comes to trucks. When you’re looking to buy a used truck, buy within your means and what you’d actually use it for. If you’re not going to be using it to tow or be on the jobsite, something like a Ram 3500 wouldn’t be the best option for you. Luckily, with trucks, there’s so many different types, from style to build, and you’ll always be able to find something that suits your needs.

Check for Truck-specific Features

While we at Davey Auto Sales only procure the best used inventory for our customers to buy, and the cleanest vehicles you’ll find in Oshawa that have been thoroughly inspected, we invite you to do your own inspection. Take note of specific truck features and maintenance history, especially ones that enjoy consistent use, like its 4x4 system, suspension, bed and towing hitch.
