Pick-up trucks are the backbone of small businesses. Reliable, versatile, and dependable, they ensure that businesses keep running, transporting goods and working in all types of terrain. Buying a new pick-up truck in the UAE can be a considerable expense for a new or young business, so the market for used-pick ups for sale in Dubai and across the UAE is substantial.
At Al-Futtaim Automall, we specialise in premium-quality pre-owned vehicles including pick-up trucks that are ideal for business users. As with all of our used cars, we ensure that every pre-owned pick-up truck is thoroughly checked by our technicians before it’s offered for sale so you can buy with confidence.
But if you are thinking of buying a used pick-up truck, what should you be looking for? Here are a few top tips.
The vast majority of pick-up trucks are advertised as either 4WD or AWD. Despite most people thinking that the two terms are interchangeable, they are, in fact, different. A vehicle with AWD or All-Wheel Drive has a drivetrain that powers all four wheels, all of the time. 4WD differs in that it can be selectively chosen by the driver and uses a system that mechanically engages drive to all wheels when the driver chooses that option.
If a vehicle has permanently-engaged AWD, it’ll be designed for use primarily on tarmac roads with the occasional foray off-road. A 4WD vehicle tends to be more rugged and more robust, and capable of tackling more challenging terrain. If you have to regularly drive off-road, a 4WD pick-up truck is the best choice.
Pick-up trucks such as the Toyota HiLux often come in options that offer up a single cab with a larger cargo area, or a twin cab that can take more passengers but with a smaller cargo bay. You will need to consider which is more important to you and the applications that you want to put your pick-up to – whether you want the comfort and convenience of a larger cab, or you need more cargo space to carry larger loads. Other pre-owned pick-ups such as the Mitsubishi L200 benefit from having both a large cargo area and a twin cab.
If you’re buying a used pick-up truck, there’s a good chance that it’s already been working hard. This is why it’s always a wise idea to buy a pre-owned pick-up truck in the UAE from a dealer like Al-Futtaim Automall, so that you can be sure the truck has been thoroughly examined before being offered for sale.
Our teams of highly trained and experienced technicians go through every vehicle with an extensive 99-point safety checklist to ensure that all pre-owned vehicles are in the best condition before being sold. Not only does this give you the peace of mind that you’re buying a safe vehicle, but also that it won’t let you or your business down. Buying a used pick-up truck from Al-Futtaim Automall means that you are buying a safe and reliable vehicle in the best condition.
Even used pick-up trucks can be expensive. But if you need it to run your business, you may want to upgrade to a more recent model, especially if it’s going to be your ‘company’ vehicle. At Al-Futtaim Automall, we also buy used cars in the UAE, offering our customers the full market value for their vehicle, regardless of model or year.
To find out how much you could get for your current vehicle, you can use our instant online valuation tool that takes into account the age, condition, mileage and model. The money that you get for your old car can go towards that pick-up truck you’ve been looking at to take your business to the next level.
