Pickups vs. Vans; Which is Best for my Business?

When you need a large vehicle for carrying heavy goods to and from jobs, it can be hard to determine exactly which vehicle is the best for you. Vans and pickup trucks both have their merits, and each individual and business has their preferences. No matter which vehicle you prefer, it could be better to opt for a vehicle leasing deal to help manage your finances and cut the cost of buying upfront. Whether you choose a van or pickup lease deal, we're here to help.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we have a wide variety of lease deals perfect for all kinds of businesses. From double cab and single cab pickup trucks to large and small vans, our leasing deals are suitable for all kinds of budgets and preferences. If you're struggling to decide between a van and a pickup truck, read our handy article below.

Pickup Advantages

Pickup trucks are increasing in popularity, as their 4-wheel drive and off-road features make them great for personal use as well as business. Their cargo bed is incredibly versatile, and is much better for loading and unloading heavier goods. If you need to carry people as well as machinery and tools, they're a much more comfortable choice, and can seat up to five people if you opt for a double cab.

Pickup trucks have excellent towing capacity, perfect if you need to transport heavy vehicles and machines without any issues. If you work on rough terrain, such as a building site, pickup trucks are great for driving off-road, and have more durability than a van.

Here at MWVC, we have a vast range of pickup, van and car leasing deals perfect for individual and business lease alike. The all-new Ford Ranger comes in fixed monthly rentals of just £225.70* per month ex. VAT, and if you're a VAT registered business, you can even enjoy VAT and tax benefits when you take out a business lease with us.

Van Advantages

Vans are a classic choice for businesses, and it's no surprise as to why. Their different sizes make them suitable for all kinds of companies, and you can even look towards customised extras for handling storage. The most attractive quality of vans is that their cargo space is enclosed, so there's no fear of goods falling out, and they're also protected from the unpredictability of the British weather. If you work in a busy town or city, then vans are the better choice for driving around.

Following an initial rental, your monthly rentals will never change throughout your contract. All of our cars, vans and pickup trucks can be delivered straight to your door across mainland UK, saving you time and stress. This new Ford Transit Custom is currently on special offer with us here at MWVC; for just £188.75* per month ex. VAT, you can boost your business's reputation by equipping your staff with a brand-new van for a fraction of the price of paying upfront.

Whether you need a singular vehicle or a whole fleet, our van and pickup lease deals are perfect for helping you manage what comes out of your account each month, and they are significantly cheaper than buying a brand new vehicle upfront.
