Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different classes of heavy-duty trucks?

Trucks in the United States are classified in one of eight classes. Classes 1 through 3 are light-duty trucks, Classes 4-6 are considered medium-duty, and Classes 7 and 8 are heavy-duty.

What are some of the special licenses or certifications needed to drive a heavy-duty truck?

In addition to a Commercial Driver’s License, drivers also may be required to hold an endorsement for specific situations or scenarios. These may include hauling hazardous materials, carrying bulk liquids in a tanker or towing multiple trailers. Additionally, drivers may need state-specific certifications depending on where they drive.

How much routine maintenance do heavy-duty trucks require?

Typically, it is recommended that heavy-duty trucks receive regular maintenance to prevent problems. This can include an oil change at certain mileages, aligning the axles once a year, and having the battery serviced every six months. It is always best to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and work with a certified mechanic.

What are some signs a truck needs repair?

Some of the most common signs of trouble with a heavy-duty truck include difficulty starting the engine, leaking fluids, strange engine noises and darker-than-normal exhaust. If you notice any of these with your truck, it’s a good idea to have your mechanic take a closer look at it before things get worse.

What are your fees?

Our fees are set on a sliding scale based on the selling price of the vehicle. Depending on where you live, there may be additional fees for taxes, tags and other considerations.

How do I pick up my vehicle?

After you pay for your vehicle, we will provide you with a Gate Pass for its release. We will release it to you or your transporter with your authorization. In certain cases, we may be able to provide tow truck service to have it delivered. We highly recommend using a tow service to remove the vehicle from our lot.
