Bakkies For Sale
Bakkies are a very popular options for many people. There are many jobs that are much easier with a bakkie. Most people find that moving furniture, landscape materials, and other hauling jobs require the open space of a bakkie. Knowing how you are planning to use a bakkie will help you figure out what is important.
New vs. Used
The first decision to make when looking for a bakkie is whether to purchase a new or used vehicle. A new bakkie comes with a warranty, which is important for a peace of mind. Also, a new bakkie would result in fewer operating or repair expenses, as it would not require more than an oil change or tuneup for the first few thousand kilometres. Purchasing a used bakkie has its own benefits, the largest being cost. A used bakkie is often cheaper than buying a new bakkie.
There are other considerations when looking to purchase a bakkie. A clear understanding of what the bakkie will be used for will help decide what weight class would be the right choice. The choice between diesel and petrol is important in that diesel has better fuel efficiency. Another thing to consider is the difference between a single and double cab. Being able to carry more people can be a perk, if you are willing to sacrifice some cargo space.
Selecting a Bakkie
Having one vehicle for a person's business and social life can make this an affordable compromise instead of having multiple vehicles. Many people love the Ford Bantam which was produced specifically for South Africa, until a few years ago when its production was halted. It was designed to be a strong, sturdy commercial truck, as well as being comfortable for private use.
Another leading bakkie is the Chevy Utility. It is not only a capable heavy duty pickup, but it is also sleek and stylish. It offers drivers a variety of options on both appearance and function, from high quality sound system to large cargo capacity and towing capability.
The choice of buying a bakkie comes with many questions that need to be answered. Having a clear idea of the intended use for the vehicle can make this choice clearer, and narrow down the possibilities to the right vehicle.
