3 Reasons You Need a Pickup Truck

Truck lovers can talk your ear off about the benefits of owning a pickup truck. Not everyone needs a truck as their daily vehicle, but there’s plenty of reasons to own a pickup truck as your second (or third) vehicle. They provide conveniences a car or SUV doesn’t.

1. Hauling

Yard sales and consignment shops offer great deals on furniture, but there’s a catch. You have to get it home yourself. That’s where owning a pickup truck comes in handy. Simply toss your amazing furniture find in the bed, strap it down and bring it home to create the perfect look for your home.

Smaller towns don’t always offer curbside trash pick up. Rather than putting lawn waste, recyclables and trash bags in the back of your car, a pickup truck can handle all your waste without making your car smell awful.

2. Towing

It’s unlikely you’ll be running a towing business with a pickup truck, but there are many times being able to tow a small trailer can be helpful. Moving items from the home supply store, extra items when the bed is full of yard sale treasures and other occasions - it can be a real boon to have the ability to tow.

3. Adventures

You’ve seen it - cars zipping along the highway with kayaks, bikes or other recreation items strapped to the roof. It’s not easy to get those items on top of the car and getting them off without dropping them or getting hurt can be even more challenging. With a pickup truck, you can simply slide those adventure items in the bed, tie them down and hit the road for your next adventure.

At Sunset Trucks, we’ve got trucks for every lifestyle. Short beds or long beds, single cab or double cab. There’s a truck for everyone. We’ll help you review your options and let you test drive your favorites so you can go home with the perfect truck for your next project or adventure.
