One of the main benefits of using Deliveree Thailand is the wide variety of vehicle options available. Depending on your needs, you have access to anything from a motorcycle, all the way up to a large 6-wheeler truck. With so much choice, you’ll be certain to find exactly what you’re looking for. In this post, however, we’re going to focus on the advantages and disadvantages of using a pickup truck for delivery. With this information, you will be able to determine as to whether or not the pickup truck is suitable for your logistics needs or whether something else will be more appropriate. Let’s have a look:
1. The Truck Bed
The number one advantage of using a pickup truck is, of course, the truck bed to the rear of the vehicle. This gives the pickup truck ample storage, with the combined ease of loading and unloading goods onto the back.
Unlike a regular truck, whilst unloading goods can be passed off to the side of the pickup as opposed to having to walk around to the rear of the truck, this can be advantageous in areas where space and manoeuvrability are limited.
2. Open Storage Space
Typically speaking, pickup trucks are favoured by construction companies and contractors, where the transportation of refuse and dusty or dirty equipment is common. This applies well to the delivery industry for those who would like to transport items such as bags of cement and lumber, bulky materials, or refuse to be removed from your site and delivered to a landfill.
3. Off-Road Versatility
Most pickup trucks will have off-road capability. Either way, the heightened position of pickup makes the vehicle much more suitable for difficult terrain. This gives the pickup a clear advantage over a sedan or hatchback car, when delivering goods to rural locations or in areas where construction is taking place and the roads are uneven.
4. Ideal for Delivering Furniture and Larger Items
If you’ve purchased a brand-new bed or a sofa and you’re unable to transport it home yourself, then a pickup truck is ideal for the task. Of course, most furniture stores will offer a delivery service, however you might find that you’ll have to wait up to a week for delivery or that it costs more than you’d like to spend. Fortunately, if you hire a pickup truck through Deliveree, we can get your new purchase to you straight away!
The Disadvantages of Using a Pickup Truck for Delivery
1. Flatbed is Exposed to the Elements
One drawback for using a flatbed for delivery is the fact that the storage space is exposed to the elements. In an area like Bangkok where it is prone to heavy rain, this can be a problem. However, fortunately, there are many ways to cover and secure your load, which can alleviate any potential problems of getting the cargo wet.
2. Stacking Items can be a Problem
Again, given that the flatbed is exposed, this means that stacking items or trying to transport too much can be a potential hazard. You wouldn’t want to overfill the pickup, only for items to fall off and get damaged. If you do need a large number of items delivered, there are alternatives for using bigger vehicles such as the box truck or the 6-wheel truck, or you can make several trips with a pickup.
Ultimately, the pickup truck is a versatile vehicle that is excellent for delivering goods quickly and efficiently. And whilst there are some disadvantages, they can be overcome with using cover and secure methods. With Deliveree’s express delivery service, you can book a pickup truck to have goods delivered within 2 hours or schedule in advance up to 2 weeks.
