Many people nowadays shop online before purchasing a new lifted truck. That way, they can track down the perfect vehicle and a price they are willing to pay. The internet allows people to do this without burning up several tanks of gas driving all over to one dealership and then another and still not finding what they are looking for. Some people will make the transaction over the internet and then take delivery of the vehicle. This happens more often with new lifted trucks than with older ones.
When the purchase of a new lifted truck is made over the internet, both the buyer and seller move into a new realm: that of determining the best, least expensive method of getting the vehicle from the seller to the buyer. This is particularly true if the buyer doesn’t live in the same area as the seller. In this case, there are three options for the buyer:
- Take public transportation, such as plane, train, or bus, to the pickup site or take another person with you as you drive to the dealership.
- Arrange with the dealership to ship the car to you.
- Hire an auto transport company or a private person to deliver it to you.
There will be a cost involved to transport your newly purchased Rocky Ridge Truck from our dealership to your home no matter which delivery method you choose. You will have either your own fuel costs, public transportation costs, or delivery costs through the dealership or shipping company. This usually includes fuel, tolls (if applicable), insurance, a driver’s fee, and special handling, if required. Special handling can include wrapping the vehicle in heavy-duty plastic wrap to protect it from rock chips.
Of course, the price also includes mileage. The closer you live to the dealership where the new lifted Jeep or truck is coming from, the less you will pay in delivery charges. An average price for delivering a lifted Jeep or pickup truck is roughly a dollar a mile. So, if you live 500 miles from the dealership, the delivery fee will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $500. Unless you have plenty of time off work, delivery will likely be your best bet.
