Terre Haute Truck Center quote accepted for truck

Thursday, December 6, 2012

During the Clay County Commissioners' special meeting Thursday, the commissioners accepted a quote for a tandem truck for the Highway Department.

The quotes were opened on Monday, Dec. 3, as follows:

* JX Peterbilt for $125,000 with a trade-in allowance of $15,000, and

* Terre Haute Truck Center for $109,784 with a warranty as an additional cost.

The commissioners asked both companies' representatives questions about chassis, beds and timelines. They decided to review both quotes closely -- looking at the price, lease and warranty -- before making a decision.

The commissioners accepted the quote from Terre Haute Truck Center for a total of $114,184, which includes the warranty.
