We try to buy everything cash if possible, and everything slightly used if possible.
All of our trucks are 05's or newer but they are all used except for a couple that we couldnt find good deals on used. Just last week i bought an 05 sierra 2500 duramax with only 40k miles and i only paid $17k. We search Craigslist like crazy trying to find good deals on used equipment. We are a good sized company that grosses over 2mil a year but just because we gross that much doesnt mean we will go spend $300k on trucks mowers and Bobcats.
