Piaggio vehicles are compact, and compact for a reason; they can go where others can’t. And that’s a real benefit when you need to operate in confined spaces or the narrow streets found in old towns. It also means that fuel costs are kept to a minimum, meaning more profit for your business.
So whether you are looking for an eye catching and versatile street vending unit, a compact delivery vehicle, a small tipper that can fit down a narrow driveway or one of the most versatile bin emptying vehicles on the road, we can help.
Piaggio commercial vehicles come with a manufacturer’s 2 year warranty and parts availability here in the UK, keeping downtime to a minimum. Carrying anything from 200kg up to 1200kg, they are readily adapted to a multitude of uses and the list of adaptations is astounding.
The Ape (pronounced app-eh) is a range of 3 wheeled vehicles that are particularly well suited to street vending, coffee carts, prosecco bars and the like. The smallest is the Ape 50 with a payload of 200kg, available with either a petrol engine or as an electric vehicle; ideal when an almost silent vehicle is needed or where emissions may be an issue (no congestion charge or fears about straying into a low emission zone with this one!)
Its big brother is the iconic Ape Classic which boasts a 650kg payload in a vehicle that stands out from the crowd thanks to its classic Italian style. There is even passenger carrying version, the Ape Callesino, which some might liken to a Tuk-Tuk. Whichever version you choose, people tend to take a second look when they see an Ape and that’s a marketing managers’ dream, as the vehicle does the advertising for you.
Need something just a bit bigger? The larger Piaggio commercial vehicles take the form of the Porter range which are compact 4 wheeled vehicles offering payloads ranging from 795kg- 1120kg. They’re available in a range of standard forms which include a fixed deck, a tipper and a panel van which is available with side windows if needed and even a fully electric version too. There is as a chassis only option as well, on which we can help you create a bespoke vehicle to exactly match your needs.
And finally, if bin emptying is your thing, the Rossi Tip-Hopper offers perhaps the most compact vehicle adapted to empty wheelie bins; ideal for narrow streets, campsites and the like.
So if you’re looking for a compact commercial vehicle with the versatility to do exactly what you need it to do, there is nothing better than a Piaggio.
