Used tractor units are readily purchased from overseas, because of their general purpose operational nature, for example for the hauling of heavy loads using different combinations of semi-trailers. Keep in mind that there are several regulations concerning the export and import. Generally the buyer must consider what and which types of loads they want to haul. On TruckScout24 there are heavy and lighter tractor units, although the largest segment is tractor units with a gross vehicle weight of 18t or more. Whether a tractor unit is used for local or long distance transport will determine the driver cab configuration. By informing yourself beforehand you will surely find the right vehicle for you.
For tractor units it is also important to ask what type of usage a tractor unit has had, in which countries it was driven, how many kilometres , whether the service periods were respected, what is the fuel consumption and whether there is any accident damage. In addition to have some idea of how well maintained an older tractor unit is, it is important to know the availability of spare parts in the land it was used most.
