If you are currently a successful commercial truck sales specialist, you know what the job is, and I am certainly happy to discuss adding your experience to our team. But, if you are looking to begin a career that gives you the satisfaction of partnering with your customers for the benefit of all, and provide a life-long 6-figure income, you need to consider commercial truck sales.
To be successful in commercial truck sales, you need to be able to partner with the customer, finding the truck solution that will aid in growing their business. Most of your time will be spent out of the office, in front of small and large business owners and their trusted partners, learning their needs. Very realistically it takes months to develop a sale and years to develop the trust of a repeat customer. This is not an immediate gratification sale with a customer walking onto the lot ready to buy, nor is it an emotional decision like you have with cars. Selling commercial trucks is a truly American enterprise as you are providing a means for your customer's business to grow and become more profitable. Be prepared to do a lot of training and thereby making an investment into your future. Success in commercial truck sales is a career around which you can plan a life, if you have the ability to work independently and put in the time.
If you are a recent college grad trying to figure out what to do with your business or technical degree, this is a job in an industry that is essential and will constantly challenge you to grow and stay sharp.
And if you are currently in the trucking industry as a driver, mechanic or support staff and want to share your passion with the rest of the market, this may be the perfect way to grow your career.
You must have a clean driving record and have, or be able to get a CDL.
