There is a wide range of business opportunities you can take up on if you own a truck. Light duty trucks are especially designed to carry heavy loads from one place to another. With a powerful engine, a huge trailer hitch capacity and economical fuel consumption, there are tons of jobs you can start and make a living on.
Here are some great ideas on how you can use light duty trucks to start a prosperous business.
A small truck that is well equipped with a shell over the bed or an attached trailer offers a spacious and secure storage room for consumer goods such as small appliances, furniture, gardening tools and other household supplies. With a well maintained truck, customers will be reassured that their loads are well handled and delivered safely.
To get into the delivery service business you first need to contract independent small businesses in your area such as hardware stores, groceries, home depots and furniture stores among others. Most of such businesses will be open to a partnership with you, to do deliveries to their clients.
Alternatively you can start a courier business whereby you deliver everything from letters to large boxes or packages for individuals or large corporations. Note that – a licensing approval from the local authority may be required for a courier business.
Both a full sized truck and a compact light duty truck can be used for towing services. The body design of compact trucks can handle heavy hauling of about 4,000 pounds while a full sized one can tow double that amount. Provided your target market is residential and small business customers then you can have a profit making business as well as maintain your truck for longer mileage and quality services. Commercial jobs are mostly larger and heavier than what light duty trucks can handle, taking such jobs will only damage your truck.
Working the yard or Cleaning services
If you are a handy guy who loves outdoor works, then a light duty truck can be a great boost to a landscaping business where you offer cleanup services and yard maintenance. You could offer a wide range of services including mowing, weeding, mulching and pruning using your truck to carry the tools of trade and other maintenance equipment that you may need. Moreover you could use the same truck to haul away all the yard waste whenever it’s needed.
You might be surprised how many people across Australia despise yard work, with many ever procrastinating on getting the work done. Your services will be welcomed by many.
As you can see there are unlimited businesses opportunities that are created by light duty trucks. Investing in one certainly is a good investment that you should not miss out on if you are thinking of starting a business this year.
