Building a fleet can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t need to be. When you’re looking to equip your business with the right work trucks and commercial vehicles for the job, don’t stress. Our Hino experts are here to help from purchase through to service, with one of the best warranties in the business. Here’s what you need to know when you’re looking to update your fleet, or are starting on your first business venture!

Choosing the Right Commercial Trucks

The right commercial truck for you is unique to your business; we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions for your fleet. Some fleets need many of the same vehicles, while others need a unique lineup of different trucks to accomplish their goals. Here are some important considerations for your business:

  • How many vehicles you need

  • Your daily business activities

  • Past vehicles: if they worked for you or were a letdown, as well as why

  • What unique features you’re looking for

  • Warranty availability

  • Finance vs. lease, do you know your preference?

  • Your current vehicle lineup: how many vehicles, their features, what’s missing and what you can’t live without

It’s important to have an idea of what needs are the most important. From there, we can help you find the best trucks to meet those needs efficiently and in a way that is affordable for you.

Hino Trucks for Industry

Here in the GTA, we’re truly a wealth of industry. We see business owners of all kinds looking for great trucks to power their daily operations.


The most rapidly-rising industry that Hino is handling without hesitation is towing. Our Hino 258u is at the forefront of towing technology, and it’s available for both finance and lease. You can have your cake and eat it too, or have your tow truck and flexibility too! Because of our impressive warranty, tow operators are relying on Hino more than ever to help get vehicles loaded and moving from Scarborough to Vaughan.


In addition to towing, we see many contractors, landscapers, plumbers, and other tradespeople shopping for their fleets here at Somerville Hino. Delivery drivers for businesses small and large are replying on us for cabover trucks and clean chassis that can be modified to work their way. From delivering baked goods to working in electrical, Hino trucks can help you get your work done without worrying that you’ll be the one stuck on the side of the road.

Work With Experts to Finalize your Fleet

Our team of Hino experts will assess your needs to determine the best fleet vehicles for your work. Because of their extensive experience with different business types, they will be able to share stories from previous transactions that may make your decision easier. This could include truck style, lease or finance insights, or any combination of ideas.


We’ll help you select between new Hinos and pre-owned vehicles to help meet your budget, then help you determine if leasing or financing is best for your situation. Sometimes the latest and greatest features might make the decision, and other times we find that pre-owned vehicles that have been customized offer maximum value and savings.
