Why Do Builders Use Utes in NZ?

If you are a tradesman, you will have plenty of tools and supplies that you need to carry around with you on a daily basis. A spacious vehicle can keep all your gear neatly organised and make it easy to find.

In New Zealand one of the most popular work vehicles is a ute. A ute, especially if it is from Camco, is a great choice for trades people as they are cost-effective, comfortable, easy to drive and generously spaced. Here are four reasons why a ute makes a great work vehicle: 

1. You Can Easily Personalise It


A ute can be easily personalised and adjusted so that it meets your needs: for instance, you can easily add a tool box to the back or a ute canopy. Metal tool boxes tend to be slightly heavier and more expensive than the plastic ones, but they a good long-term investment to add to the back of your ute as they are durable and weather proof. Adding a ute canopy will protect all the items that you have in the back of your ute.

Camco is NZ’s premium commercial vehicle fit-out company that provides a wide range of accessories for utes. They can customise your ute with roof racks, shelving and ute canopies which will all help to make your work life easier.

2. High Storage Capacity With Comfort And Functionality


Utes are popular because they are very spacious and comfortable. A good ute can help you transport your supplies and tools, but it also provides a comfortable and quiet ride. High-spec utes feature heated leather seats, climate control and high-end navigation systems. 

3. A 4X2 Has A Lower Fuel Consumption Rating Than A 4X4! 

A 4X2 ute not only consumes less fuel, saving you money in the long run, but is also has lower CO2 emissions which makes it a more environmentally-friendly choice. Utes are also easier to handle than traditional pick-up trucks, and the tyres and brake pads also cost less to replace.

4. A Good Ute Can Tackle Even The Most Difficult Terrains


Lastly, utes are specifically designed to tackle almost every type of terrain which is great for New Zealand conditions. A good ute can easily push through rough terrain and off-road trails and take you to your destination. Perfect for those rural trade jobs.
