  5. What is a bakkie?

A bakkie is an iconic vehicle only known as a bakkie in South Africa. America knows them as a Pickup and Australia knows them as a Ute. 

Over the years the sizes and shapes of a bakkie have evolved in a big way. Today they are available in various shapes and sizes and can even be used as a general family vehicle in their double cab configurations.

When it comes to a bakkie as a workhorse, there is no vehicle that matches up to the good old bakkie. They’re ideal to transport small to medium loads and to be used as a working vehicle for plumbers, electricians, builders and many other industries. A bakkie is also often used for leisure purposes such as camping, boating and 4x4ing.

There is no vehicle that will ever match up to this great multipurpose vehicle… a Bakkie!

Bakkie Hire

As great as a bakkie is, not everyone owns one, so not everyone can experience the versatility that a bakkie offers. In this day and age, not everyone can afford a bakkie or you may simply not have a need for one on a full-time basis. This is why companies such as us have made the option of bakkie hire available.

Individuals, SME’s and corporate companies alike can rent a bakkie on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Once the task at hand is completed, you can simply return the bakkie to us and rent one again in the future when the need arises. It’s as simple as that.

Hiring a bakkie is not as hard as you may think. All you need to do is give us a call, tell us your transport needs, and where you will be travelling. Our experienced sales team will give you a highly competitive quote and then it’s up to you. Once you’ve accepted the quote and made the payment, a bakkie will be booked out and prepared for pickup.
