Overcoming New Truck Order Delays In 2021
Waste haulers who have recently attempted to place a new garbage truck or roll-off order have learned that COVID-related backlogs have made timely delivery of a new refuse vehicle nearly impossible. Truck manufacturers, garbage truck body companies, and virtually the entire supply chain are experiencing unprecedented backlogs, resulting in delivery time frames that can exceed 8-12 months or more. To compound matters, garbage truck and body manufacturers have been forced to prioritize the fulfillment of contractual obligations to large accounts, pushing new or smaller hauler orders even farther down the production line.
What are the options for waste haulers in immediate need of a garbage truck, or who want to plan ahead and ensure that trucks will be available when needed? As the nation’s largest garbage truck and roll-off dealer, Trucks & Parts is proud to have helped hundreds of haulers nationwide get the trucks they need, when they need them in a post-COVID environment. Here are three simple ways that Trucks & Parts can help haulers bypass the current truck shortages.
Buy a Reconditioned Garbage Truck or Roll-Off
There is a huge difference between a used garbage truck or roll-off, and a truly reconditioned one. Trucks & Parts specializes in exceptionally reconditioned trucks that provide waste haulers with many benefits of a new truck, but without that new truck price.
As the industry’s largest buyer of clean, low-mileage trucks, Trucks & Parts starts with the very highest quality vehicles, many of which have been city or government maintained from new. We carefully evaluate each truck with our exclusive 222 point inspection and perform all work needed to bring the vehicle to the high standards for which our trucks are known.
Many of our used garbage trucks, roll-offs, hook lift trucks, and container delivery trucks are equipped with brand-new bodies and equipment, mounted on clean, low-mile reconditioned chassis. If you are looking for a great-looking truck at a great price, it’s hard to beat a reconditioned chassis with a brand new body. The ultimate in reliability and value!
If you find yourself possibly needing multiple trucks but worry about budget constraints, many businesses find Trucks & Parts reconditioned used trucks to be a perfect solution. Our experienced truck consultants will gladly work with you and develop a creative plan to provide you with the trucks you need at a price that won’t break the bank.
If you need a garbage truck, roll-off, or hook lift and need it now, Trucks & Parts has a huge inventory of reconditioned trucks in stock, ready for immediate delivery.
Take advantage of Trucks & Parts buying power
Trucks & Parts is consistently one of the nation’s largest buyers of new chassis and bodies. When many dealers were canceling or reducing orders due to COVID uncertainty, Trucks & Parts increased our new truck orders in anticipation of a post-pandemic rebound. We have more than 200 new trucks on order with a steady stream of inventory arriving regularly.
Whether you are looking for a new front-loader, rear loader, roll-off, hook lift, container-delivery truck, or grapple truck, Trucks & Parts has a large selection of new trucks in stock right now, ready for immediate delivery.
Trade-in your truck early to avoid delays and gain tax advantages
After witnessing the long delay of new truck orders, many forward-thinking haulers have been trading in their trucks early to avoid delays that could be experienced at the time of planned replacement. Trucks & Parts has a large inventory of brand new trucks in stock, and more arriving / being built regularly.
Trading in your truck early can have immediate tax advantages as well. In addition to trade-in tax benefits, IRS Section 179 Equipment Deduction allows for the deduction of the full purchase price of trucks and equipment in the current tax year – up to $1,050,000!
