A well-maintained fleet of fire trucks is an essential part of public safety in any municipality. At the same time, however, many fire departments are faced with declining budgets and other economic constraints. Buying used from a reputable dealer is one of the best ways to keep costs in check without compromising quality.
Truck Site has a growing inventory of used fire trucks for sale. All of our units are sourced from nearby municipalities and come fully inspected by our team of resident heavy equipment mechanics.
Buying used is always a gamble, but with the guaranteed quality the Truck Site team delivers, you can get a great machine for less. Check out our current selection of used fire trucks for sale below or contact a team member for assistance.
Fire Truck Buyer's Guide
There's a lot to consider when shopping for a used fire truck. The number of miles on the vehicle only tells part of the story. Before making any purchase, consider:
- Vehicle history: Newer isn't always better. Like other heavy equipment, fire trucks are built to withstand a lot of abuse. Often, where and how a fire truck was used is more important than its age or the number of miles on the engine. At Truck Site, we source most of our used fire trucks from within the state of California. They haven't been exposed to the snow and salt that can cause premature rusting in other vehicles. This translates to less damaging wear and longer life for all structural components.
- Aerial apparatuses: Buying used allows you to choose a unit specific to your needs rather than build one from scratch. This means you save money and spend less time getting your purchase ready for use. We have used fire trucks for sale with a wide range of aerial apparatuses, including tower ladders, quad ladders, tiller ladders and more.
- Rescue apparatuses: Different rescue apparatuses serve different emergency response purposes. You can save money by choosing a used fire truck that's already equipped for your specific application, whether it's cleaning up hazardous material spills, fighting wildfires or anything else. While used units can be retrofitted with different rescue apparatuses, be aware that this is an additional expense to consider.
