Whether you’re in the trucking business and use your trucks to haul for other people or simply use your own fleet of trucks to haul your own goods or products, you know that the decision to add another rig is a big one. You have to consider the upfront cost of the truck vs the value and capacity that the additional truck adds for your business, and then consider the additional costs of running and maintaining an additional truck as well. Plus, in the midst of considering all of this, you have to decide what type of truck you want and need. Here are four solid reasons that that next truck should be a freightliner.
Freightliner Is A Frontrunner
One of the best referrals is the return customer, and Freightliner has many. Freightliner actually is one of the top sellers of heavy-duty trucks. This is because they are dependable with low maintenance. While the upfront cost might be higher, the longterm cost is less – and the trucks are well-built too. We wouldn’t stay on top if this wasn’t true. Ultimately the numbers tell the story: Freightliner has some of the highest resale value in the market – Freightliner trucks are so good that they keep that value after years of use.
Fuel efficiency isn’t at the top of most peoples minds when they think about heavy-duty trucks. It should be, however, for the good of the industry and the planet. Freightliner is devoted to staying on the cutting edge of both fuel efficiency and alternative fuels, even electric and compressed natural gas options.
Freightliner is also committed to integrating performance features that make sense and improve the experience of owning and driving the rig. Recent additions include features that allow you to monitor and maintain your engine even when you can’t immediately get to the mechanic. These features make it easier to continuously monitor your rig and keep track of and follow that data and your pre-drive inspection reports in real time.
Finally, the truck isn’t the only place Freightliner invests in quality. They also have cutting edge factories where they are proud and confident that every truck coming off the line is built perfectly. Then they undergo thorough testing for quality control. This standard also goes for any replacement parts that you need – we are committed to quality.
