Schmitz Cargobull has ranked highly in a new survey of the used truck and trailer market in 2022.
Based on user analysis via Europa-LKW.de, the platform determines which used vehicles were most in demand in Germany during 2022.
In the search for semi-trailers, Schmitz Cargobull is in first place in the rating for all trailer types as well as being the most searched trailer brand.
According to Schmitz Cargobull, the top rating shows that it is also the preferred partner for customers seeking used vehicles.
“Schmitz Cargobull emphasises longevity in its product strategy and is committed to the circular economy in order to extend the life cycle of its vehicles,” the manufacturer said in a statement.
“One example is the galvanised chassis. Galvanisation increases the service life of the chassis by up to five years compared to a coated chassis.
“This has a positive effect on the entire service life and on the resale value.”
Schmitz Cargobull sells its used vehicles in over 38 depots throughout Europe.
At these depots, over 10,000 used vehicles are sold to some 70 countries every year – 90 per cent of which come from Schmitz Cargobull.
In these depots an extensive range of around 1,600 used vehicles from different manufacturers can be found.
Vehicles that meet the strict quality standards of the used vehicle experts are awarded the ‘Trailerplus’ seal, which means it has been subjected to a thorough quality check by the independent testing company before delivery.
In the event of a breakdown, Schmitz Cargobull also offers a free breakdown cover contract for the first 12 months via the Trailerplus website, which includes payment of all labour, material and travel costs, and a payment guarantee.
All of the used vehicles from the Cargobull Trailer Store can be viewed online here.
