    Has anyone dealt with Kid Cars in Rockford, IL? They are a huge commercial truck dealer and I am dealing with them on a bucket truck and I am just curious if there are any experiences with them?

    Seem Nice, but seems like they always have Sh1t, i would look over the truck very carefully.
    i have been there a dozen times to look at trucks, just going from there inventory it seems like they always buy high mileage trucks. i know that they are work trucks but just be thourough(sp?)

    That was kind of my gut feeling too... but the price seemed really good for what the truck is. I am trying to find something that will work with as small of an investment as possible until I know if it will be a profitable business for me.

    Trying to avoid having to spent $20,000 on a truck to hope to make money lol

    Ah that really doesn't make a guy feel to great lol. Do you know anyone who has or just your feeling from seeing what they have? To me all there stuff looks oddly clean/painted up to look nice.

    If you check there website the prices are totally different from what they list on ebay too.

    I dont anyone that has bought from them, just looking at what they have and the little shack of a building they are in. I might be dead wrong, but I just get a wierd feeling about them.

    I agree with no fear deere,

    Pot callin the Kettle black here....but most of my friends dont see this so ill be ok....

    Buying a cheap truck will probably end up costing you more in the long run, dont know what your gettin into, but in general, if the need for the truck is generated and genuine, then it should be profitable.

    this from the owner of a whole fleet of POS stuff that cost him money daily, but yet refuses to spend good money on a truck......some ppl never learn :)

    Their trucks always seem over priced to me. When ever I sell one of my trucks, I have used their adds to show people how much more they are getting out of my truck for so much less.
