Pickup Trucks
Pickup truck
  • It is a truck with its rear part open. There are dual benefits of this modified design of the truck.
  • It becomes simple to load goods on to this large vehicle and  open back portion of the truck also helps to unload goods.
  • Thus, loading and unloading would have never been so easy before had the truck been closed from all sides.
  • Some pickup trucks have a gate or door like structure on the back side and one has to simply open it when it comes to loading and unloading goods.
  • if the back side of this truck has a rooftop, then it puts restrictions on the height of goods that need to be transported from one place to another.
  • For instance, a tall refrigerator or a cupboard might not necessarily fit on a pickup truck with a rooftop. In such a scenario, renting a truck with an open back is a good option.

  • You could also carry your motorbike on a pickup truck to a garage for repair.
Pickup trucks are manufactured in different sizes. The large ones that work on V8 engine are able to carry heavy loads and might suit your requirements, if you have large number of goods to transport over a long distance from one city to another.
It is observed that Dodge Dakota and Chevrolet Colarado are some of the most sought after pickup trucks.Although, these are mid-sized vehicles, they are designed for 2-4 passengers and the open rear area is reserved for cargo.
Cargo area of Dodge Dakota is often used for carrying motor bikes. Families often use these mid-sized vehicles to go for an outing. This is because when the cargo area is not used for carrying goods, as many as 6 adults can easily accommodate in the vehicle.
