End of the Box Truck

Post by milspec6 on Thu Apr 12, 2018 10:28 am

I am sitting here today contemplating selling off my box truck instead of waiting until the fall. I just had the worst 6 weeks for this time of year in more than a decade and it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of changing. I would be taking a loss on it and hate to see it go, but the way things are right now, paying for any repairs on it would kill me. I probably spent well over $25,000 putting it together, but what do you think it would be worth to a business needing such a set-up? The truck is a 2005 NPR with the Diesel (110,000 miles) and new tires. The Judson TNT has 1,300 hours on it and the #4 Ext Psi Little Giant with 50 hours on it. Custom hose reels, SS chemical racks, LPG belly tank, and 80 gallon fresh water tank. It needs nothing mechanically except maybe the a/c condenser fan and the TNT is like new mechanically. I would think that a 1-ton cargo van with low miles set-up with the TNT would be worth $14k - $15k, but would the box truck be a plus or a negative in comparison?

$14k would be a deal.
Ask for a it more, and offer it for $14 to move it faster

Well, it goes up for sale today. I just left my CPA and I was slaughtered on taxes. We still can't warm up at all and the phone isn't ringing. I am not finding any reason to believe that it will change anytime soon. I am cutting off my limbs in hopes of saving the core body, but I might not have that much fight left in me to take this much farther.

I guess I was too stupid to believe this was going to work.

That is a pretty good idea Matt, I might do that. I got it ready to list, but really don't want to do it so I haven't done it just yet. I had 2 jobs today now that the Sun has decided to show up in the Midwest again. They were just 2 bedroom homes so not bick tickets, but it was still good to be working again. I am going to think it over this weekend and make a decision.
