Businesses That Can Benefit from a Pickup Truck

Do You Really Need a Pickup?

When it comes to running a business which requires travel, no matter whether you're self-employed or have employees, you're going to need transport. Your first thought is probably a fleet of cars or vans, depending on the service you provide. However, single and double-cab pickup trucks don't just possess the payload qualities that vans do, but they're also incredibly comfortable and are cost-effective when you opt for a pickup lease deal.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we have a vast collection of vehicle leasing deals perfect for business and personal leases alike. All our car, pickup and van lease deals can be tailored to suit your budget and preferences, and we can even recommend the best vehicle for your business needs. Are you torn between a fleet of vans or pickups for your business? Read our arguments in favour of pickup trucks below...

Construction and Landscaping

Some of the most attractive qualities when it comes to pickup trucks are their impressive payloads and sizeable flatbeds. They're perfect for transporting heavy goods and machinery, which is a common necessity in the construction industry. As well as having the capacity to bring your materials and tools to your jobs, it can also take waste and old materials away, making it a versatile vehicle for all kinds of heavy, messy work.

One of the key differences between vans and pickups is that the latter can be used as your day-to-day vehicle as well as your work truck. They're incredibly comfortable, and double cabs can seat up to five people as your average car can. The all-new Ford Ranger can be leased with us for just £225.70 per month ex. VAT, allows you to manage your finances effectively if you require a fleet of trucks.


As a nation, we'd be lost without tradesmen. Plumbing, electrical work and carpentry are all services that every home needs and this business would be lost without a sizeable vehicle that gets them from job to job. Whilst vans can keep tools and materials enclosed, pickup trucks have an ease-of-access advantage, allowing workers of all trades to effectively complete their jobs.

We have a wide range of pickup lease deals here at MWVC perfect for all businesses, no matter whether you're fully established or just starting out. We have the popular Nissan Navara for just £197.94 per month ex. VAT, with an impressive payload of 1115kg perfect for carrying heavy objects to and from jobs throughout the day.

Hauling and Delivery

Another attractive factor that pickup trucks boast is their ability to tow objects almost double their weight. Not only can they carry heavy goods in their flatbeds, but their towing capacity makes them the perfect vehicle choice for courier and haulage companies. Pickup trucks are also handy to have around if someone breaks down, and they make life easier if you need to move something heavy, fast.

If you're considering contract hire for your next pickup truck, we have the all-new Toyota Hilux for just £184.54 per month ex. VAT is perfect if you're on a budget. Like all pickup trucks, it has impressive towing capacity and has cosy interiors for optimal driver comfort.
