When selling used or refurbished equipment, it is necessary to provide the customer some level of assurance that the vehicle they are buying is free from major defects and is safe to operate. Therefore, Betten Trucks offers its used and refurbished equipment in 'trade package condition.' Typically, this would include items such as the engine, transmission, drive shaft and rear axle; which are known collectively as the "power train." Other items include tires, brakes, glass, body damage, and bay doors and locking mechanisms. Different types of vehicles have different trade package conditions which are fully described as follows:
Trade Package Conditions
Tractors - Power train is guaranteed to be sound, no broken glass, $250.00 maximum body damage, and tires and brake linings will pass DOT inspection.
Trucks - Power train is guaranteed to be sound, no broken glass, $250.00 maximum body damage, and tires and brake linings will pass DOT inspection, and doors and locking mechanisms are fully functional.
Trailers - Frame, kingpin, and axle are sound, tires and brake linings will pass DOT inspection, and doors and locking mechanisms are fully functional.
30 Day 50/50 Warranty
Betten Trucks also offers its used and refurbished powered equipment (i.e. vehicles with engines) with a 30 day 50/50 warranty. This means that for the first 30 days following the delivery of the vehicle to the customer, we will share equally in any repairs to the power train with a customer. However, the customer must obtain the approval of Betten Trucks prior to initiating any covered repair work.
