Hello! It’s Dylan here from Box Trucks of Jacksonville.  If you’re a small business owner who is currently renting box trucks to get the job done, I’m here to let you in on a little secret…

Renting sucks!!  Okay maybe you already knew that.  But I actually meet people all the time who are stuck in the rental rat race & they don’t know how to get out.  

In this blog post, I’m going to give you 5 reasons why owning a box truck is a better move than renting.  I’m also going to show you exactly how to get out of the rental rat race, once and for all!

Reason # 1. Financial Efficiency

I want to tell you a mind blowing story that perfectly illustrates why I am so passionate about my job.  

Back in 2015, I met a customer who was paying $700 per week renting a box truck for his delivery business. It took me 1 hour to sell him a comparable truck for $535 MONTHLY PAYMENT! 

If you calculate that out for a whole year, it results in a $27,180 savings!  Now you can see why I’m so in love with this gig of mine.  This is what I live and breathe for.  As a small business owner myself, I know that you work too hard to let all your profits go towards renting a truck.  

That $27,000 should be going back towards building your business, or paying employees or a spontaneous trip to Vegas… Whatever floats your boat.  The point is, that money should be going back in your pocket.  

2. Freedom and Flexibility

Owning a box truck offers flexibility that renting box truck does not. There are no restrictions on usage hours, and you can personalize the truck to suit your needs. You can wrap it with your company information so it advertises for you, wherever the truck goes. 

3. Reliable Access

Renting means you’re at the mercy of the rental company’s availability. During peak seasons, you may find it difficult to secure a truck on short notice. Owning a box truck ensures you always have your truck ready to go for you at a moment’s notice. 

4. Asset Appreciation & Write Offs

I’ve already established that monthly trucking expenses more than quadruple when you’re renting box trucks as opposed to owning.  But another thing to think about is this… your weekly rental bill is just going to thin air.  Poof… There it goes.  When you buy & finance your own box truck, your monthly payment will be going towards the principle of the truck, and one day you won’t have a monthly payment at all.  Also, keep in mind that you can write off your monthly trucking expenses on your taxes.  

5. Business Growth

Finally, owning a box truck can be a stepping stone to business growth. Having your own vehicle allows you to take on more clients, deliver faster services, and expand your business operations. Think about it… what would it do for your business if you invested that $27,000 right back into employees, equipment or trucking.  It’s an investment that will fuel your growth. And all you have to do is stop renting box trucks. 

Technically speaking, you could have a fleet of 4 trucks on the road for the price of 1 renting.  It’s a no brainer.  

Now that I’ve spilled the beans on all the reasons renting is such a bad idea, I want to tell you about the alternative.  

You’re going to need to find a trustworthy commercial truck dealer that offers flexible finance options.  They are going to have to have an excellent selection of trucks and a helpful sales staff.  And you’re going to want to work with a finance manager who really knows what he’s doing, because commercial finance is tricky business. 

If only such a dealer existed..

Oh wait… that’s me.  At Box Trucks of Jacksonville, we are the real deal.  We actually care about helping people and it would be my pleasure to help get you out of the rental rat race, so you can start owning.  

Now that I’ve told you all the reasons that renting box trucks is such a bad idea, let’s get into how you go about buying one. As I said earlier, commercial finance is no joke.  But I will be there every step of the way.  First we’ll get started on an application to see what you qualify for.  I will work hard to get the best rates and terms that I can for you.
