Procuring a used fire engine can bring a range of benefits to commercial organisations. And there are many reliable second-hand models available to fit into an important role, both for on-site safety and insurance purposes. A fire truck which is in good working order and has all of the equipment required to meet expectations will be a good investment, especially if it is second-hand and thus an inexpensive but highly functional alternative to a new model. Of course, some buyers will simply be looking for a truck which they can purchase as a focal point for an exhibition or to add to a collection. There are all types of fire engines available, with a range of designs on offer.
A fire engine may feature a familiar cab design and engine up front, but almost everything else about it will have been customised for the purpose of fire-fighting and rescue. Most models will come with multiple compartments in the rear to store equipment, hoses and other important machinery. You will also find water tanks and containers on some models so that they can be used when not within reach of a mains supply. Many models will also feature integrated ladder systems, extending to various heights and offering different levels of articulation and reach. Whenever such equipment is advertised as being included, an inspection should be carried out to make sure that this is indeed the case. This will also let a buyer assess the state of the kit and establish whether or not any repairs or replacements are necessary.

Buying a used fire truck with all of the regulation equipment on board is important if you are procuring it for the purposes of lowering insurance premiums on a building site or other such location. The vehicle must be fully operational or else cover may be void if a claim needs to be made. Such concerns are lessened if the truck is intended merely to be a display model or to join an existing collection of vehicles. But it is still sensible to check that the description of its condition matches the reality, no matter what your intended use for it is.
An element which typifies fire engines is the presence of a crew cab. Where units of this kind might normally be built to house sleeping quarters for operators, manufacturers instead enlarge and extend the cab so that up to six crew members can be accommodated on board. If a used truck has been harnessed by a working fire department over the years, then the interior may have been subjected to just as much wear and tear as the exterior - especially considering the situations into which the crew will have thrown themselves. This makes it sensible for buyers to scan the van inside and out, as well as look for signs of stress and strain to the suspension, steering and brakes. With fire trucks being driven at high speeds through urban areas, maintenance to combat any damage will have been required.
