Finding the right truck for your business and logistical needs can be challenging. It can also be challenging and expensive to import a truck into many African countries. However, thanks to our team and contacts, and Selected Supplies, we can help you find the perfect truck and an affordable rate. We will handle the importing and transporting; all you need to do is pick the model that suits you.

Here are some things to consider before buying your next truck:

For what purpose?

It is important to think about the purpose of your vehicle. Fleet owners often overlook this important aspect. Before you visit a dealer, it is important to know what your vehicle will be used for.

Consider the type of supplies that you will be transporting, how many supplies you will need, and what terrains you will drive on. A medium-sized van would be ideal for moving small packages between provinces if you’re a courier agency. If you plan to move large items, such as furniture and equipment, you’ll need a truck that can haul the load.

Remember your budget

It is essential to have a budget in place for large purchases, particularly fleet vehicles. You will be less likely to consider larger trucks if you have a small budget. You must also consider what you are transporting, as this will determine the size of your vehicle.

Either you can create your budget on your own or consult a financial advisor for assistance. Begin by looking at your income before deductions and regular expenses like petrol, maintenance, and other services. After establishing a budget, you are ready to submit your finance application. To avoid being caught out and falling behind, you should include VAT and sales taxes.

All specification options

Perhaps you have a clear idea of what you want from a fleet vehicle. This is great, but it can make it difficult to find the right vehicle when you use transport financing options. To find the perfect vehicle, you will need to consider all options.

Avoid only searching for vehicles that are brand-name-specific. These can be expensive and may limit your options. Instead, make a list of your needs and wants, including safety, comfort, and body condition. You can also easily brand the vehicle. A successful fleet vehicle purchase is possible by being open to other vehicles.


After you’ve taken the vehicle for a test drive, you can customize it. Branding is essential for any fleet or transport company. This is how the world sees your brand, so it is important to do it right. This can be affected by the vehicle you choose.

You will first need to ensure that your employees have the right vehicle for their job. Your company will look unprofessional if you have employees driving small vans to transport large loads. Large bus trailers are also acceptable to transport minimal cargo. Before you order your vinyl stickers, make sure you check with your lender to ensure that the vehicle is able to be customized without ending the warranty.
