PIB TIP: LEARN ABOUT WARRANTIES. Most warranties, especially on used trucks, are limited. With new and used equipment warranties, take as much time as you need to understand the warranty being offered and the claim procedures, such as who accepts and rejects claims. Warranty costs increase with equipment age but can decrease with major preventive maintenance investment. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks. CORRECTION: The Nov. 3 PIB Tip referred incorrectly to the blow-by test.
