Compare the Cost of Semi-Trucks: New versus Quality-Refurbished

Quality Refurbishing for More Than 40 Decades 

With more than 40 years of dedication to the trucking industry, the team at J. Ruble & Sons continues to refurbish trucking equipment to give small to medium-sized transportation companies a dependable option. We specialize in refurbishing daycab tractors, heavy spec cab and chassis, and other vocational trucks, and we continually are looking for big power trucks and tractors. 

The Costs of New Trucking Equipment

We all hear about it; there is a shortage of truck drivers to move what America needs moving. The cost of new equipment can deter anyone interested in starting a small trucking business. Found on FleetOwner, the cost of a new semi ranges "anywhere from $110,000 to $125,000." For a new semi-trailer, you're looking at "$30,000 to $50,000." 

Not only is today's advanced technology expensive, but there is also "upward climbing" operating expenses. No matter the obstacles, people, young and old, start small trucking operations and operate to successful careers. If you keep your truck in good operating condition and offer dependable service, your trucking business can grow and prosper. There is a lot of information to help plan and drive a trucking business to success. And, starting small and smart can lead to big success. 

Quality-Refurbished Trucking Equipment by J. Ruble & Sons is a Smart Start

The one thing about big tractor trucks is that they have a long life span, especially if regular maintenance and repairs have been done. At J. Ruble & Sons, we look for those older trucks that have years left to work hard, and our highly-skilled technicians refurbish them for more years of trucking.
