Everyday waste is a challenge to remove from sites and industrial complexes, not to mention what to do with recycling. Refuse vehicles are the most effective tool in your arsenal for dealing with waste removal, and a high-quality, high-specification used example can ensure the cleanliness of your work environment for years to come.

If you’re in the market for a used refuse vehicle for your organisation, you can be sure to find what you’re looking for at Endurance VS. We are a specialist supplier of commercial vehicles, specialising in refuse vehicles for both hire and sale.

When you buy from us, you can be sure that you’re getting an exceptional quality refuse vehicle at a competitive price. We can help you find the right vehicle that will keep you in the fight against litter and rubbish. While most vehicles have at one point been operated by local councils, and may see high mileage, we fully service and maintain these vehicles before we list them for sale, so you can be absolutely sure you’re investing in a top-quality asset for your organisation.

What must I consider when buying a used refuse vehicle?


Refuse trucks can be a great addition to your municipal fleet. However, you must make sure the vehicle you’re intending to buy suits your requirements. For example, check the capacity of the body. If you buy a truck that’s too small, you may find yourself having to empty it too often. You should also consider the axle configuration; most refuse trucks are 6×2, but some are 4×2. 6×2 configurations are able to carry heavier loads, but if you need a vehicle for a small site or complex, this may be overkill.

Most refuse trucks consist of a truck cab, and a tippable container fixed to the body of the truck. You should ensure the truck you buy has a cab big enough for all the workers that need to use it; some trucks contain smaller cabs than others. Many refuse vehicles are fitted with important extras, such as handwash stations, electric windows and electric mirrors. It’s important to note that depending on the contract your organisation has, you may need an onboard weighing system, which will allow you to comply with local regulations.

Another consider is that a refuse vehicle’s typical working day will involve lots of stopping and starting. As a result, most vehicles are fitted with an automatic transmission. This reduces operator fatigue, and makes the job a whole lot easier.
