If you're using a van or pickup to deliver furniture to your customers, it's time to consider investing in a semi-truck. Here are just a few benefits you can expect to take advantage of after investing in a semi-truck for your furniture business:
Make Transport More Convenient
Having furniture delivered to your store for resale can be inconvenient and expensive. Not only do you have to pay your service provider a premium to deliver the furniture, but you have to work around their schedule which could result in having to wait longer than you'd like to get your hands on the furniture in the first place.
But, if you have your own semi-truck to rely on, you can pick up as much furniture as you want at one time, whenever you want to. You'll pay for gas and for your driver's salary, but you won't have to worry about paying overpriced delivery fees or waiting for deliveries when you really can't afford to.
Enhance Your Delivery Services
Many of your current and potential customers likely don't own vehicles that are large or powerful enough to drive the furniture they buy home from your store themselves. So being sure that you can deliver the furniture, no matter how big the piece is, can help attract more customers and encourage customers to buy more when they shop at your store.
You won't be limited to delivering only what will fit in a delivery van, and your customers won't have to worry about renting a truck to get their new furniture home. And owning a semi-truck will allow you to deliver furniture to multiple customers at the same time, which means that you can deliver quicker and for less money which everyone who buys furniture from you is sure to appreciate.
Take Advantage of Free Advertising
Semi-trucks offer a lot of exterior surface area to advertise on. You can have your furniture company's logo painted on the hood of the truck and hang banners that feature your business name and contact information on the sides of the truck. You can even have custom mud flaps made that promote your business. With all of these advertisements in place, you'll enjoy free advertising every time you're out picking resale furniture up or making a delivery.
You don't have to purchase a brand new semi-truck to gain the benefits outlined here. You can save some money without sacrificing quality by purchasing used. Contact a local used semi-truck dealer like Arrow Truck Sales to learn more about the trucking options that are available to you.
