PACCAR Financial Opens Used Truck Center in Salt Lake City

BELLEVUE, Wash., July 19, 2011— Used truck buyers know a good thing when they see it, and they’re finding high quality Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks at PACCAR Financial’s Used Truck Centers.

With the recent opening of the Salt Lake Used Truck Center, in the West Valley, PACCAR Financial (PFC) now has national coverage with its third location, joining centers in Hickory Hills, Ill., and Spartanburg, S.C.

“Salt Lake City is an ideal location for our dealers and customers,” said Jason Skoog, PFC’s director of operations. “It’s a major transportation hub and a great place to sell high quality PACCAR products.”

The grand opening festivities, which included a ribbon cutting with Todd Hubbard, PACCAR Financial’s president, was followed with an auction at the facility the day after. “It was a great success,” said Skoog. “We sold 88 high quality Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks.”

According to Skoog, more than 28,000 used Kenworths and Peterbilts have been sold by PFC since 2000. “We’re a one-stop used truck center with great financing packages,” he said. “We offer an excellent selection of premium used trucks and we can finance qualified owner-operators and fleets at each location. In fact, we currently have a used truck financing program going on until the end of the year which offers trucks with payments as low as $1,329 a month with 10 percent down. The program comes with a 12-month/100,000 mile warranty worth over $3,000.”

Skoog said the used truck market is still very robust, and late model, low-mileage Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks sell quickly. “But, we have a constant source of incoming used truck inventory through trucks coming off lease and from trade packages,” he said. “This enables us to know in advance what will be available. Therefore, we can keep truck buyers in the loop as to what will be for sale in the near future.”

To make it easier to find the right Kenworth or Peterbilt, customers can go to PFC’sweb site , click on the used truck availability icon, and search by truck model, mileage, engine and other specs to locate the vehicle that satisfies their needs.

As with other PFC Used Truck Centers, the new Salt Lake location features service bays and a sales office. “Before any truck goes on our lot for retail sale, we have a thorough inspection process to ensure each vehicle is ready to perform,” said Skoog. “Kenworths and Peterbilts are known for their quality and long life. Our inspection process helps ensure the second owner of that vehicle will be as pleased as the original owner.”
