Renting a Truck in South Africa

Many companies in South Africa own their own trucks and regularly use them to fetch stock, deliver goods and move general items.

From time to time, you may have a need for a truck in a personal capacity, and that is exactly where Book-a-Bakkie comes in handy. Our target market is the general public and SMEs who need to hire a truck on a short to medium-term basis.

Rental Periods

Many truck rental companies prefer long-term business where a client will rent a truck for at least one month. This is because they make more money and they have a more regular income. When looking for truck hire, we offer you the option to hire the truck on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Best of all, we don’t lock you into any fixed-term contracts.

Types of Trucks

There are many types of trucks available in South Africa that are configured for different transport requirements. The most common trucks that are available for hire through Book-a-Bakkie include:

  • Panel Vans (to move goods that need to be protected, such as furniture and electronics)
  • Curtain Sides (ideal for palletised goods as they have easy loading and offloading features)
  • Drop Sides (for transporting general equipment, building materials or supplies)
  • Crane Trucks (has a crane attached to lift goods on and off the truck)
  • Refrigerated Trucks (to transport fresh or frozen foods)
  • Tail Lift Trucks (has a tail lift to lift your load on and off the truck)

It is important that you hire the correct truck that suits your transport needs. For example, you don’t want to rent a drop side truck to do a furniture move, and then it rains. Your furniture will be ruined.

Truck Sizes

We offer various-sized trucks in our fleet. Our vehicle load capacities range from 1,6 ton to 32ton. You need to make sure that you rent the correct sized truck to suit your transport needs.

Drivers & Assistants

When you hire a truck on a short-term basis, it is a good idea to hire a driver along with your rental. We also give you the option of hiring assistants to help you with the loading and off-loading of your cargo.
