How to choose the best pickup truck / light commercial vehicle for your business. Whether you are an individual looking to buy a single pickup truck or a business owner looking to invest in vehicles for your company there are some basic questions you should ask yourself before you decide on which pickup truck / light commercial vehicle to buy. Answering these 4 important questions will give you a good idea about which vehicle you should ideally put your money into: 1. What kind of terrain do you operate in If you operate in hilly terrain or marshy areas you should pick a 4 x 4 vehicle with high torque a stronger engine bigger tyre sizeand higher ground clearance. If your business is largely focussed in urban areas a regular pickup with good manoeuvrability and low turning circle diameter will be a better choice. If your business requires your vehicle to traverse long stretches of highway regularly then you should opt for a pickup with higher horsepowercovered cargo bay large capacity fuel tank and great mileage. 2. What kind of loads do you usually need to haul Pickup trucks come with a lot of variation in the length width and depth of their cargo bays. Pick a vehicle that suits your cargo best. For example if you need to carry poles you obviously need the maximum decklength whereas if you deal with smaller but heavier objects you need a vehicle which may have a smaller cargo bay but which has a higher payload capacity rigid leaf spring suspensions and more heavy-duty engine to be able to pull that kind of weight. 3. What kind of price point are you looking at Pickup trucks come with a huge variation in price depending not only on the brand but also the sub- variant payload capacity etc.You must compare the owning and operating cost andweigh the features against various prices and against your requirements and see what works best so that you can close thebest possible deal. 4. Does your business have a specific requirement from the vehicle Some companies offer LCV’s that are modified for specific businesses. For example Tata Motors has fully built variants of itsTata Ace mini truck that cater for businesses like cold storage waste disposal management liquids transfer tanks food truck businesses etc. These Fully built variants will be directly deployed in business from day one and save lot of cost and time.
