5 Great Reasons to Own a Truck


Have you ever uttered the words 'I really wish I had a truck for this'? I have, and I've said it more times than I can count. I've borrowed trucks for plenty of big jobs that my sedans just couldn't handle. I never really saw myself as a truck owner or truck driver, but after riding in them enough times, I can absolutely see the merit in owning one. Everyone seems to have a friend with a truck that they can call when they need help moving big items or going off-road for some reason, but wouldn't it be a whole lot easier just to have your own truck?


Here are 5 reasons you might want to consider owning a truck...

They're powerful.

If you need a lot of power to haul or move trailers, large items, etc, a truck would be your best best. Think about it, with more horsepower, you can do more and move more. It's a no-brainer. The question is- how much power do you want or need? Think about the things you may want to do in or with a truck and the types of items you might need to move or haul. You'll be able to easily figure out how much horsepower you need to safely get those jobs done, and then you'll have a better idea as to which truck is right for you.

They're safe.

You might not think about a truck being the perfect 'family car,' but more and more families are turning to trucks as their main way of transportation. I have seen families of five love their trucks, and have lots of room for their gear, including car seats. Truck manufacturers are constantly upgrading and improving safety features, so drivers and passengers will be safer than ever before.

You can haul it all!

Taking a beach trip with the family and needing to bring along tons of stuff? No problem! With the truck bed, you automatically have a ton of space to securely bring along a bunch of luggage and other needed items. Nee even more room? Hitch up a small trailer and bring it all along!

You can weather the storm.

Most truck drivers aren't afraid of a little inclement weather. With added safety features to help you weather the storm, you'll be able to feel safe whether driving through rain or snow or enjoying a warm and sunny day with the windows down.

You won't have to think twice about whether or not something will fit in the vehicle.

Did you make an impulse purchase at IKEA? No problem! You can take it home with you the same day you purchased it- even if your purchase was a home entertainment center that came in 10 long and flat boxes. No renting a truck or pestering your lone friend with a truck, who is tired of coming to your rescue. You can haul it home yourself and save yourself a lot of hassle (and maybe even save a friendship!).

Plus...
Your truck might fit your lifestyle better than your car.

Unless you previously owned a vehicle that was built for adventure, you'll probably be much happier with a truck if you're the outdoors type. Hunting, fishing, camping, tailgating- it's all better and easier with the right truck.

Are you ready to make the leap into truck ownership?
