Ambulance for Sale: How to Buy the Right Ambulance for Your Budget

April 15, 2013

With so many ambulances available on the market, it is not easy to choose the best option when you are looking for an ambulance for sale. Buying a brand new modular ambulance can cost your service well over $100,000 – sometimes as much as $200,000. When these numbers definitely seem above your budget allowance, buying a refurbished or remounted ambulance becomes an excellent solution.

A popular way to go for a cost-conscious customer is buying a used ambulance. While many buyers are wary of potential problems associated with used ambulances, there are certain measures that can be taken in order to assure that the customer is buying a quality used EMS vehicle that will not incur high costs of service and maintenance.

The first and the most important factor to consider is the source that you are buying your ambulance from. Many dealers of ambulances sell their used equipment without thoroughly servicing them, on an “AS-IS” basis where the customer is fully responsible for any problems with the ambulance once it rolls out of the dealership doors. There is another approach to the sales of used units when a dealer carefully inspects the ambulance and then performs mechanical service and refurbishing of the vehicle. This allows the dealer to put warranties on most of the vehicles they are selling. The final product may seem just a little more pricy in the beginning but in the long term it can save the customer tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.
