Used Kenworth trucks are priced for resale in several ways, such as by looking up the specific make and model in a trucking valuation guide. Sellers can also use listings on classifieds sites such as CommercialTruckTrader.com and Craigslist.org or auction sites such as eBay to gauge current fair market value.
The trucking valuation guide found on TruckBlueBook.com gives site users the ability to enter in a truck's make, model and year and receive current estimates for resale price. Prices also take other factors into consideration, such as the mileage of the truck, its available features and its condition, including any damage or needed repairs.
To determine the value based on active listings on classifieds and auction sites, one should begin by looking for posts selling the exact same make and model of Kenworth truck that needs pricing. This gives a general impression of how much other sellers are able to charge for that truck. Sellers should also look at recently closed listings for the same model of truck to learn what prices actually motivated buyers to make a purchase. One of the biggest drawbacks with classifieds and auction sites is that some buyers attempt to inflate the truck's sale price beyond what its actually worth.
