Cheaper Operating Costs

Vans are also used for handyman businesses.  Cargo vans are popular choices for carpentry tradesmen because they can be easily outfitted with power tools such as saws, sanders and routers.  However, van owners usually trade off decent gas mileage for convenient cargo space. Pickup trucks are often cheaper to operate than vans. The 2018 Toyota Tundra gets an approximate 15 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.  The Toyota Tacoma delivers 20 mpg around town and 23 mpg on the highway.

Separate Storage

Home improvement business operators are known to work around chemicals such as varnish, paint and lacquers. They also transport small amounts of gasoline in special containers to power lawn care equipment.  When you own a cargo van, you’re forced to breathe in the chemicals that you transport. As a pickup truck owner, you’ll likely load lumber, chemicals and tools onto your truck’s open-air bed. You can also fit your truck’s bed with storage bins for better tool organization.

Versatility

One of the best reasons to choose a pickup truck for your home renovation business is that it can double as a personal vehicle. Many new trucks like the Tundra feature smooth rides, comfortable seating and great infotainment systems.  You can even get a Tundra that has cabin space that seats up to six people. Both the Tundra and the Tacoma have towing capabilities. This means that you can hitch a trailer to your truck when you need it for work and drop the added load when you don’t.

Final Thoughts

You can read about the benefits of owning a pickup truck for your new business, but nothing beats actually getting behind the wheel.  It’s best to set up test drives of several popular pickup trucks like the 2018 Toyota’s for sale Clarksville, MD before you make your final decision.
