So many people use trucks every day. Trucks are one of the most vital pieces of machinery to preserving the power of our society. Without trucks, we would have a terrible time getting construction materials (not to mention the debris that they will inevitably turn into) from here to there. And how would we have proper hay rides without the use of trucks to do it? Simply put, the truck is one of the lynchpins of our world. But then again, is it really a good idea for you to drive a truck as your daily vehicle?
Granted, in a perfect world, there would be a rental truck on every street corner. All you would have to do is swipe your credit card in the slot, grab the keys and drive off to do what needs to be done. Trucks are great for that. But in this world, a truck is a very expensive piece of hardware. After all, you have to insure it just like a car. And it tends to take up even more fuel, because of the way its body is designed and the hard work that it usually does. While a truck is a great piece of hardware, it can also be a horrible burden.
What you have got to decide for yourself is, do you do enough manual labor to need a truck? You can generally answer this question by thinking through your average week, and remembering whether you hauled something substantial enough that a car just could not have handled it. If the answer is yes, then by all means, get yourself a truck for those frequent situations. But if the answer is no, you can just borrow one.
