Your used truck buying assistant Prospective buyers now can get a virtual sales person, Rachel Darville, to help them interact online with RigDig's used truck history reports, says RigDig's James Vogel. "By asking a series of targeted questions, we can then tailor a presentation for the viewer, offering specific pieces of information, descriptions, and even discounts," he says. RigDig reports track junk and salvage vehicles, total loss insurance claims, title, accidents, inspections, ownership, cargo hauled and CSA scores. A user needs only a vehicle identification number to get a report.
