Car transporter trucks are used the world over to transport single or multiple smaller vehicles in a convenient and efficient manner. Whether delivering new vehicles to dealerships or carrying cars that are in need of repair to the garage, these trucks need to be able to cope with heavy and irregular loads that require unique arrangements for safe and secure journeys.
Buying a used car transport truck means checking up on its usage history and also working out exactly what you require it for, as this will allow you to pick a vehicle that meets your expectations and comes within your budget.
For rigid-bodied car transporter trucks, there are several things to pay heed to when you are buying second-hand. Firstly, are the winching mechanisms in working order, since these will be essential to ensuring that vehicles can be towed on to the rear body? Secondly, if the body is not just a single capacity unit but can hold two or three vehicles, is the lift that facilitates their stacking in good condition? Expensive replacements and repairs to these mechanisms may be necessary, and so you should be made aware of this before you make a commitment to a particular model.

Electric winches are common, so these systems should be intact. Meanwhile, the hydraulics that can haul cars upwards and keep them out of the way while more are loaded may need attention, so look out for jolting operation as a sign that a problem is present.
Larger car transporter trucks which feature separate cabs and trailers will necessarily have higher capacities for carrying vehicles while also having been used over longer distances as a result of their features. Purchasing the cabs and trailers separately is an option, depending on your requirements, but make sure that each is in the condition described by the seller, as the extensive usage these vehicles tend to receive can lead to many components becoming compromised if not properly maintained. These large car transporters can make room for six or more vehicles, with many going to ten or more depending on the trailer that is attached. Check the integrity of the trailer thoroughly, looking for any signs of weakness or any parts that are not working as they should be, because a lot can go wrong after years of transporting a lot of cars around.
Because cars come in different specifications, sizes and types, the transporter truck you choose should reflect the types of vehicles that you will be using it to transport. Some models are only suitable for smaller family cars, while others have enough room for 4x4s and even large vans. Such specifications should be made apparent by the seller, and if you have any concerns then you should always feel confident enough to asks questions so that answers can be provided. If the trailer seems to be a sound investment, give the cab some attention to check that things such as the engine, tyres and suspension are all in a suitable state for use.
