You’ve heard all those country songs. Other than a can of beer and his guitar, nothing stands between a man and his truck. Many people find that buying and owning a vehicle is a personal matter, and therefore take a different approach to acquiring one than when the view is professional.
If you are going to be purchasing a vehicle for your business, don’t let your heart or your ego lead the way. Use rational reasoning and your brain to make the best decision you can, besides, that’s what you use for business anyway, right?
What Can You Afford?
You should have a business budget, and therefore should know how much you can spend on this vehicle. Depending on your line of business and your budget, it can mean acquiring anything from a small, used sedan to a full-sized bus. Remember that vehicles are quick to depreciate and expensive to maintain, so look for an option that you are comfortable with paying for while giving you the full range of utilities you need.
