What to Consider when Considering Used Trucks for Sale in Edmonds

Buying a used car is a risk. It’s such a risk that “used car salesman” is a joke for someone who is unscrupulous and untrustworthy. That’s not the case at Rich’s Car Corner. We know how risky it is to buy a pre-owned car and we want to assure you that you can trust us.


Searching for used trucks for sale in Edmonds and the surrounding areas can feel like hunting in the dark. You might not know what a truck has been through so you don’t know whether or not it will be reliable. Obviously, you can check the odometer but the number of miles on a vehicle is only a small part of the story. Especially with a truck, you need to know what previous drivers have done with their vehicles. Trucks are often utilized for their capacity as work vehicles and off-road vehicles. If a truck has been used for hauling heavy materials or pulling a trailer its entire life, then the number of miles will not give you the whole story. The amount of strain placed on the engine, transmission, powertrain, and chassis will be much higher than other used cars for sale in Edmonds that maybe haven’t been used for such difficult labor.

Rich’s Car Corner, a trusted pre-owned cars dealer in Edmonds, does a full inspection of every vehicle before we buy it. We don’t buy our cars in bulk. Instead, we inspect each vehicle individually to be sure that we are placing the best used trucks for sale. When you buy with us, you know that the vehicles are trustworthy and are going to last.


Trucks have specific concerns that you should be aware of when looking into buying one that’s had a previous owner. Cars are the same way. Cars are much less often used for off road driving or hauling heavy materials. However, they are susceptible to natural circumstances. Because many cars are quite low to the ground, they are vulnerable to a flood. Water only needs to rise a few feet to reach the level of a compact car’s doors. Though cars are sealed up well, water has a way of finding every available crack and crevice. In a heavy rain, trunks sometimes fill up with water. If the car has been drained, you might not know that it was ever flooded. However, standing water produces mold, mildew, as well as mechanical problems. A trusted pre-owned cars dealer will be able to inspect a car and determine if it has been damaged in some way you would not be able to see. When looking for used cars for sale, it is very important that you know what you are getting.
