Affordable work trucks can be found through local dealer websites, classified ad websites such as TruckShopper.com and online truck marketplaces such as Truck Paper. Specialty truck auctions and online government surplus auctions are also good sources for cheap work trucks.
Truck Paper offers truck listings for a wide range of used work trucks, ranging from farm trucks to medium-duty refrigerated trucks to industrial dump trucks. The Truck Paper site allows visitors to browse or search for new, used and salvaged work trucks. It also lets users filter results by manufacturer, truck type, price and location.
Auction websites such as AuctionTime.com specialize in commercial truck auctions. Official government liquidation sites conduct auctions for surplus vehicles from military, state and federal government agencies. When purchasing a used work truck through an online auction, buyers tend to pay an average of 15 percent to 25 percent less than if they buy trucks through a dealer or private party.
AuctionTime.com is a specialty online auction site that offers regular auctions for trucks, construction vehicles and heavy equipment. AuctionTime.com runs each auction for 24 hours and includes a real-time status board for registered bidders to monitor the event.
Government liquidation sites, including IronPlanet, GovDeals and Government Liquidation, offer ongoing or scheduled auctions for surplus vehicles, including cargo trucks, Humvees and fire trucks. A complete listing of surplus property auction and sales sites is available at USA.gov.
