Used truck retailer SelecTrucks says that due to an overwhelmingly positive response from customers, it is extending two of its 2008 promotions through March 31. The promotions are designed to offer customers a variety of purchasing and financing options to help maintain or grow their businesses despite the lagging economy.
“We’re committed to offering our customers support during the current credit crunch,” says Drew Backeberg, manager of marketing and customer support at Daimler Trucks Remarketing Corp., based in Fort Mill, S.C. “We’re extending these promotions into 2009 in the hopes that we’ll meet the needs of more customers dealing with the demands of this market.”
SelecTrucks is offering a fuel card valued at $2,000 for the purchase of mid-roof 2003 and 2004 Freightliner Columbia trucks powered by the Mercedes-Benz 4000 engine.
Special financing offers customers two options: a limited-time interest rate of 4.75 percent with no down-payment required for customers with a good credit rating; or a down-payment matching plan designed to reduce the customer’s cash outlay and monthly payments, where SelecTrucks will match 50 percent of a down-payment up to $3,500. Both finance options also allow customers to defer their first loan payment for up to 90 days. Qualifying trucks for both financing options include 2003 and 2004 Freightliner Columbia and Century Class S/T trucks with a wide range of specifications.
Details for both promotions are available at www.selectrucks.com. Customers also can contact their local SelecTrucks Center for more information.
