Commercial vehicles are primarily designed to carry cargo, objects and work tools, rather than people (as with cars, SUVs and so on). In order for a vehicle to fall under the category of commercial vehicle it must have a gross weight of 3.5 tonnes and be designed to move goods or objects.
Why buy a commercial vehicle?
Commercial vehicles are versatile workhorses. Pick-up trucks, for example, could be used as family transport one day and the next day to move a pile of waste, while some of the larger vans have minibus capability and capacity.

Commercial trucks and vehicles include:
Some vehicles that are typically considered to be passenger vehicles also appear on this list. How these cars and trucks are classified depends on how they are used. For example, if you own an SUV that you use to get to work, it is considered a personal vehicle. If you use the same vehicle but use it to haul building materials and get back and forth to a worksite, it could be considered a commercial vehicle.
