REPAIRS MUST BE MADE AT D.M. BOWMAN FACILITY. It is the responsibility
of the purchaser to bring the said equipment to a D.M. Bowman facility.
Any modification to warranted components would void the warranty
on that component and the components affected. Factory warranty supersedes
all other warranties.
In addition, many of our late model tractors have portions of manufacturers’ extended
warranties remaining. If you prefer, we also have access to other aftermarket
warranties at an additional charge.
Q: Do you take trades?
A: Unfortunately: no. We only sell equipment which we purchase
new and maintain in our own shops.
Q: Why do prices vary within groups of identical trucks?
A: We discount our vehicles based on how long we’ve had each one for sale. We do this to encourage a “first in, first out” inventory turn so that no trucks sit too long on the sale lot. Because of this you may notice a wide price spread between trucks that seem identical. There’s nothing wrong with the lower priced one other than the fact that it’s been for sale longer.
Q: What type of selection do you offer?
A: We typically maintain an inventory of approximately 50 – 75 vehicles. We currently offer late model Mack and Volvo daycabs and sleepers, well spec’d and perfect for the single truck buyer or for companies that want a matched group of equipment. We also occasionally have other equipment for sale, including: asphalt tanks, dry bulk tanks, van trailers, flats, pup trailers and dollies. Watch our site for specials.
