The UK’s first website dedicated to pick up truck contract hire and leasing has gone live:

A one-stop shop for business and private pick up buyers, Pick Up City reflects a massive increase in popularity for pick up trucks in the UK. Total pick up sales now exceed 25,000 per year, a 15.6 per cent increase in the face of a 4.3 per cent decrease in the new car market.

Unbiased professional advice on the ideal pick up to suit users’ needs and on the best methods of purchase is available from The popular Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Navara, alongside the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Mazda B Series and Isuzu Rodeo, can all be ordered through the website.

Detailed road tests of each of these pick ups can be found at, along with downloadable manufacturers’ brochures and a comprehensive, free guide to buying a pick up truck.

Leasing, contract hire, hire purchase and personal contract plans are all offered by Pick Up City. Part exchanges can also be arranged.

So why a pick up? “The latest generation of pick ups are more sophisticated than ever before,” says Andy Alderson of Pick Up City.

“Business users find that they offer the comfort and equipment levels of a car in the front, while they can be accessorized with a canopy to give the practicality of a van in the rear. They also have great appeal for those with large families, with trailers or caravans to tow, for dog owners or for extreme sports enthusiasts.”

Pick up trucks suit customizing to match their owners’ needs and personalities: also offers a full range of accessories - from secure Tuf-Tops to satellite navigation systems - that can be fitted in readiness for delivery.
