Benefits of buying a used truck

August 29th, 2019 by

There are a lot of things to consider while you’re shopping for a pickup truck. Should you buy a new truck? Is a used truck the way to go? It’s important to consider the benefits of buying a used truck from Kendall Value Lot and why it might actually be better for you and your budget. Here are five reasons why buying a used pickup truck near Boise is a great choice.

Used pickup truck near BoiseDepreciation

Trucks depreciate. Like any other new vehicle, a new truck will depreciate around 30 percent over the first two years of ownership. After that, the value of your truck will start to level out. Let a truck depreciate with somebody else.


When you buy a used truck in Nampa, it’s already depreciated on someone else’s watch. You might be shopping for specific available features and amenities on your truck. You’re more likely to find the features you’re looking for (and then some) in a used truck, because you can afford to get more premium amenities for a lower price. Another benefit of a used truck is that you’ll be able to customize it the way you want. Since you spent less on the truck initially, you’re more likely to have money left in your budget for the custom features that you want.


Don’t like what you see in this year’s new truck model? Shop an older version of the same model. Maybe there were features, amenities, or even a body style that you preferred over the current year model. You’ll have a wide variety of features, amenities, and body styles at your disposal when you shop used trucks near Boise. Can’t find what you’re looking for in the truck you had your eye on? Take a look at a different make and model of pickup truck. When you shop used, you don’t have to drive across town to a different truck dealership, because the one you’re looking for is probably in the next parking spot over from where you’re already standing.

Trucks are meant to be rugged and do hard work, so they’re going to get beat up over time. You’d hate to scratch, dent, or ding that new truck. When you buy a used truck, you probably won’t feel as bad when you ding the side of the bed with a 2×4. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with driving a used truck and let it do what it’s meant to do—work hard.


Despite what you might have heard from your neighbor or seen on the road, used cars aren’t held together by duct tape and bailing wire. Are you still not sure about that used truck? Buy certified pre-owned truck and get the peace of mind that comes with a thorough inspection and manufacturer-backed warranty.
