There are so many different types of cars available today. It can be hard to pick your next family car or even your first ever vehicle after getting your driving license. You can choose a truck, a fast sports car, or even a smart electric car. There are Tesla’s incredible self-driving electric cars, there are typical family vehicles. These are designed to carry people and luggage. There are city-smart cars with compact sizes that are perfect for hip and trendy young adults.
However, there’s a choice that not many people consider due to its rather silly connection to farmers and labour workers: a truck. Yes, a truck. The type that has a large storage area in the back, the type of truck with large wheels and a loud motor. While it might seem a little out-there and strange to use a truck for everyday things. You’ll be surprised at the amount of flexibility and comfort it can offer. Here are some reasons that your next vehicle purchase should be a truck instead of a fancy sports car.
Power can mean a lot of things. A powerful vehicle is one that stands out from the rest of the crowd and a truck is a perfect example. Don’t think of a dusty rural truck that has no doors. Think of a shining beast with four large wheels carrying your groceries and kitchen appliances in the back while towing a boat. It’s not something you see every day. It’s also the perfect symbol of power.
You Have a Lot of Space
If you’re a family person then you’ll understand the struggles of trying to fit the entire family into a standard 5-door vehicle. It’s even worse if it’s a compact vehicle that isn’t designed to be a people carrier. Also, you’ll have less space to store groceries and large items unless you convert the back seats into extra space by pulling them down. This isn’t a big deal unless you have a lot of people traveling with you.
A truck can remedy this with ease. Not only can the back be transformed into extra seating space, it can also be a weather-proof storage bay with the help of a sturdy tonneau cover.
You’ll Be a Hero
Have you ever needed to move home or carry large pieces of furniture? You’ve most likely either phoned a service to do it for you or requested the help from a friend that owned a truck.
Truck owners make popular friends because their vehicles are capable of so many logistical miracles. Need to move to another location? No problem, a truck is capable of carrying an entire family’s luggage and more if needed. Have to get a boat down to a river? Again, a truck can do that.
When you pull up at a traffic light and stop next to a tiny sports car, you can look down at them from your comfortable raised seat. Sure, they might speed off and scream at you for “compensating” for something else. At least you’ll get the last laugh by driving down the road carrying an entire room’s worth of Ikea furniture in the back. Hey, to each their own!
