Tradies need appropriate transport
One of the first things a tradie learns about the job is that if you can't move from A to B with all the necessary tools, it can be tough to get things done.
Therefore owning the right kind of transport is a major consideration for a busy builder, plumber, painter or landscape gardener.
While you obviously wouldn't attempt to carry a load of bulky items on the train or bus, this doesn't mean that any car will do.
For everyday day use you require a ute or truck that can not only hold a lot of heavy equipment, but also stand up to the inevitable bumps, dings and scratches that are part and parcel of the business.
And of course when it comes to turning up at a major job site or even just a private home to do a touch of basic maintenance, everybody likes to see a tradie arrive in a vehicle that oozes experience and knowhow.
With the right set of wheels you are always ready to pick up a new contract.
Even if you don't own enough heavy duty tools to fill the ute with, you can always hire whatever you need for a particular job and turn up on the first day looking like a tradie who means business.
