NADA Vehicle Guide

Shopping for any kind of vehicle can be a difficult experience, especially for those who want to make sure they’re getting the best deals. While truckers looking to buy their first often have a checklist of details that they are looking for, it can be difficult to determine what a truck is really worth.


Some things to consider when buying a truck or when gauging the value of the truck you’re about to put on the market include the condition of the exterior, the interior condition, the mileage, and how the truck was used. But while this can help give you an idea of the truck’s value, it can’t give you definitive number.


That’s where the NADA vehicle guide comes in. For years, the NADA has been helping consumers by analyzing vehicle sales in order to determine the prices at which most people buy and sell them. Shoppers and sellers who use the NADA guidelines when buying and selling their semi-trucks will be sure to base their decisions around a truck’s actual value.


The NADA comes up with its numbers by analyzing vehicle sales in the United States. By looking at the sales from a statistics viewpoint, and taking into consideration variables such as geographic location, this group can produce a real, scientific representation of the truck’s value.


The NADA presents its findings for trucks, cars, and other vehicles in a variety of forms that are perfect for buyers and sellers on the go. For instance, the company’s guides are available on the Internet, in mobile form, or in portable electronic version. Of course, the guides are also available in their famous print form.


So if you’re looking to buy a truck or sell your own big rig, make sure you think about the value, and the science of NADA is there to help you do that.

The N.A.D.A is just a guide line JIm. It doesnt take in count rebuilt engines and ccomplete condition of truck. Also it doesn't evaluate all the options a truck has that would add value to the trucks. Such as Power windows and locks tilt and cruise etc which is an added expense when you order the unit new. I do enjoy reading your blog. I'm waiting for the day You mention Freightliner Frank. Honesty competitive prices and good looks all in one package.
