During your search for the ideal Overland or Expedition Truck, you may encounter several trucks that may look quite promising. Many things check out though you're left with that lingering feeling you miss crucial information about that promising truck. Unknown stuff feared leaving you struggling with a license plate or technical issue, possibly ruining your future journey. 

This situation is quite common, especially when a truck is located in another country. The information you received so far crossed language & cultural barriers. This is with both buyer and seller sometimes communicating in a foreign language. Mutual misunderstandings can quickly occur in many ways, potentially mispresenting the truck or its registration. Moreover, it would be a total waste if a really promising truck is set aside for the wrong reasons, especially when it's (only) a license plate being the big unknown. With new insights and experiences later on, the same truck could have been the one after all, but most likely, it's unfortunately already sold. 

Test Drive

When most things about the truck do check out, a viewing and test drive is the next big step. When the truck is in a different country, the logistics and costs to view & test drive a truck can be quite substantial. Days off from work, plane tickets, hotel, rental car, etc. Not to mention a solid arrangement with the owner/seller to ensure the truck is still available once you get there. 

The viewing & test drive is an overwhelming moments. Literally, a truckload of information becomes available. In this situation, it's pretty common to forget or miss essential items in the heat of the moment. Also, when unaware of where or what to look for, important stuff may surface after buying – as it always does.
New (surprising) information uncovered during a viewing is always a good catch. However, it's pretty disappointing when this disqualifies the truck, especially when it could have been known beforehand. Moreover, the newly discovered info may be evident to the seller, not realizing for one moment the item was a make-or-break item for you as a buyer. 

Upgrade Project

For any pre-owned truck, several or more compromises are often required to match your list of top requirements. The truck may need an upgrade, though the implications of the modifications can be challenging to estimate or oversee.

Also, finding a workshop in the position to make a costs & work estimate may not be so easy to find. After all, most are either fully booked, need to see the truck, or are unwilling to work on an unknown truck. Nonetheless, the truck you're looking at may still be the one. It may just require another approach not thought of before. 

Inspect & Decide

Before making the final purchase decision, you may consider an independent 3rd party inspection. Coordinating this remotely from a different country before a planned delivery can be daunting. Getting the seller to cooperate while there are also other potential buyers requires a solid plan. This with a sales contract that requires prior experience to get this done effectively. 

If the truck you're looking at is the very first you have seen, we recommend considering our Truck Orientation Service.
