Extracting a greener land out of mud and soil, Indian agriculture equipment industry has given a vibrant facet to the farms and fields of our country. Within this arena, used tractors have played a major role as most of our farmers prefer them over the new ones as they save them the hard earned money that can be further utilized in developing their land. The current scenario of our agriculture sector showcases the accommodation of mainly those farmers who do not have a great bank balance to support the purchase of a new tractor. That’s how used tractors have become quite prominent amongst the farmers.

·         These days, a used tractor is easily available with no risk associated with them. Earlier, people used to feel a little reluctant while purchasing a used tractor because of the risk associated with them. But now, transparency and organization has overshadowed the risk involved.
·         Generally, people doubt the condition of a used tractor. But, most of the used tractors available are just one or two years old. And, this makes them a wise option to choose.

In order to strike best deals while purchasing a pre-owned car in India, follow the points given below.

  • Once you are sorted with the research, do not forget to do the physical inspection of the used car. Do check out its condition both internal & external and under the hood along with its chassis in order to avoid expenses in future.

During the Monsoon Rajya Sabha session Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said the Government has allocated a total Gross Budgetary support of Rs 46,834 Cr including cess and toll remittance for 2016-17 for the Road, Transport and Highways Ministry. The minister also said that there is a proposal to spend around Rs 7 Lac Cr to develop National Highways of around 50,000 kilometers in the next 5 years.

The total budget of Rs. 7 Lac Cr will be divided in a span of 5 years and money will be allocated to Road, Transport and Highways Ministry on project to project basis.

This announcement has again confirmed the confidence of transport & construction business owners in the Central Government. The announcement first came during the presentation of Union Budget by the Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley and since then we have seen a good demand for both old & new commercial vehicles & construction equipment in the country.

Both transport business & construction equipment business owners are now rushing towards buying all new fleet of vehicles & equipment to gain a leading edge towards acquiring the tenders released by government.

Are you looking forward to buy a Pre-owned commercial vehicle for your business? Great! That means your business is growing. But in case you are doing it for the first time, then be cautious as it can be a little intimidating thing to do. Do not relate it with buying a car because the check list that goes into buying a pre-owned commercial vehicle is quite different. To make things easier for you, here are some dos and don’ts of buying a pre-owned commercial vehicle.  

The vehicle Type
  • Your decision for a purchase must be based on your usage of the vehicle. Depending on that you will decide the category of options available that you should explore. In case, you need it for transporting heavy goods, then a used mini truck will not serve the purpose.
  • Fuel is one of the most important considerations that you should look for. In case, you are hunting for a bigger commercial vehicle, then remember that it will consume more fuel. If your business can afford that level of consumption then only go for this option. Otherwise, you will end up in a big tension in future. Today there are a number of commercial vehicles that comes equipped with modern diesel engine that consumes less fuel & offers great mileage.

  • Never go unprepared while you visit a dealer to purchase a used commercial vehicle. It is mandatory for you to have all the technical knowledge so that you can make the most appropriate choice and not just get influenced by what the dealer says.
  • Never say ‘Yes’ until you are not sure about the used commercial vehicle. Because that will result in future problems. That’s why, it is necessary to physically inspect the vehicle through a test drive. Also make sure you inspect the vehicle in proper day light to check every aspect of it.

Now, after reading these dos and don’ts, if you wish to purchase a pre-owned commercial vehicle, then do get in touch with Shriram Automall India Limited (SAMIL). The company offers widest range of used commercial vehicles at optimal price through their Automall facilities across the nation.
