Box Trucks

Where do you guys go to purchase those Chemlawn type box trucks and what do you think of them? How much will I be looking at and should I buy used or new?

Thanks

Talk to UPS. They have a lot of brown trucks. Change your company colors to brown. Low decks--floors only about 18 inches off the ground.

I had one a few years back. it was a 95 with 110k on it. worked great for me, loved the fiberglass body and never a mechanical problem in the 4 seasons I used it. sold it when I went to just using the pg and wanted to downsize to a pick up. last I heard the guy that bought it was still going strong.

mkosar,

I would see how much the fiberglass bodies are because you can buy a regular box truck CHEAP!

Let me know if you need any info!

Do ya want to get together for lunch over the winter here?

I was just up your way today as I had to go to Sidney for a meeting!
