Things To Consider When Buying A Second Hand Horseboxes
When it comes to buying second hand horseboxes there are many advantages, but also a few things you need to think about. If you`re planning on getting a second hand horsebox, that`s a great and it`s a very cost-effective way to attain one. However, when you`re looking at these second hand horseboxes there are some questions you need to be asking yourself and some things you need to be sure to check out to make sure this second hand horsebox is in a good enough state and will be used safely.
Look At The Overall Condition
The very first thing you need to do is look at the overall condition of the horsebox. Usually, first impressions tend to be quite accurate. If something looks great and well-maintained, there`s a good chance few things will be wrong with it. However, if it looks simply rundown than there`s probably more wrong with it than meets the eye.
Be sure you check out the design of the ramp and make sure everything seems sturdy. This cursory look around is the most important step of the entire process.
Needs Full Service History
While this isn`t necessarily a must, it`s strongly encouraged. If you know exactly when everything was serviced, what was done and what went wrong with it and how long ago it was, you can prepare better for what it may throw up when you buy it. If it was fully serviced or fixed a year ago, than it`s probably fine, but if nothing has been serviced for years than you may want to rethink buying this horsebox.
If someone is unable to provide a full service history, that doesn`t tend to look good. When it comes to the safety of your horse, being cautious is always better, so it may be time to walk away.
Run HPI Check
You should always run an HPI check to make sure there`s no financing on it or no money is owed on it. You don`t want to incur that cost.
High Mileage Is Ok
Many people will look at a used horsebox and see it has high mileage and then automatically decide not to buy it because high mileage = bad quality. This isn`t true, as sometimes a horsebox will have high mileage but be cared for incredibly well and therefore is still in excellent shape. In addition, many modern trucks and horseboxes can drive 500,000 miles without really running into any problems, so it`s definitely something to keep in mind.
Buying a second hand horsebox can be an excellent decision, but you need to be diligent about checking everything out beforehand to ensure you don`t run into any unexpected and unwanted problems. If you follow these few steps you`re well on your way to finding one that`s perfect for you.
