The certified trend that started with used cars is migrating to the used-truck market. For example, both Arrow Truck Sales and International Truck and Engine now tout used-truck programs that certify certain trucks as meeting specific standards.
According to Arrow, what sets its program apart is that all Arrow Certified trucks come standard with a 6-mo./50,000-mi. warranty, which the company says is the longest standard warranty in the used-truck industry.
International says every “Certified Pre-Owned Truck by International” must pass a rigorous 83-point International Performance PM “B” wet inspection and maintenance process, which it regards as “one of the most extensive inspection programs in North America.”
