View Full Version : Buying a truck vs. renting a truck

07-12-2012, 09:36 AM
We have always rented a truck. After 19 visits we are thinking of buying.
We will be on the island almost 3 months this next year.
Any suggestions for buying a used truck? What about the insurance ?
We have heard it is about $700 a year.

Thanks for any input.

whoever told you it was700 must have been drunk..you can only get liabilitity on used vehicles ans it runs about half that..

Trucks rust out on Bonaire due to salt exposure.
I very much doubt this scheme will be worth it...

the yearly car tag fees are about $200.00 - also where are you going to store it when not on the island?

We could store the truck at our cottage and possibly rent it out when renting out the cottage.
Thanks for the advice.
