Glider trucks have a history dating back to the early 2000s, when emissions regulations for heavy-duty trucks were first introduced in the United States. These regulations required that new trucks be equipped with advanced emissions controls and technologies, which made them more expensive and complex than older trucks.

To address this issue, some truck manufacturers began selling glider kits, which were essentially new truck frames with refurbished or reused engines, transmissions, and other components. By using older or refurbished components, glider kits could be sold at a lower cost than new trucks, while still meeting emissions regulations.

Glider trucks became popular with some truck buyers who were looking for a more affordable alternative to new trucks, or who preferred the simplicity and reliability of older technology. However, in recent years, regulations around glider trucks have become stricter, and some experts have raised concerns about their impact on emissions and air quality.

Despite these concerns, glider trucks remain in use today, and are still a popular option for some truck buyers.

There is nothing that makes us happier than when a client grows their business because of the financing we helped them with..

It took my bank 13 days and lots of documentations to initially approve my truck loan for my business loan. When the bank started to get the title for the truck, the loan came to a complete stop. The bank told me they can’t finance glider trucks and to pick a differnt truck. During entire loan process, the bank manager said they can finance glider trucks. I went ballistic. Luckilly the dealership recommended Glider Trucks and two days later I closed with a lower monthly payment then my bank of 15 years rescinded from me. Problem solved.

I started using Glider Truck Loans becauseit was the only truck lender that I could find that funded high mileage trucks for new trucking businesses. I have stayed loyal to Gider Truck Loans, since they helped my trucking company grow in to the profitable 53 truck fleet it is today. Most of the trucks I finaced had no down payment and great interest rates. I definitely owe Glider Trucks Loans a debtr of gratitute for all the help beyond financing they have provided my business.
