Mobile billboard trucks are a form of portable advertising that can reach areas where traditional billboards are not allowed. They are effective at gaining exposure and can be easily maintained and altered. They are often used in major cities and outdoor shopping districts.

A billboard truck is a type of advertisement that uses a vehicle to drive around town with a large advertisement in tow. This type of advertising is usually done in major cities or areas where large numbers of people are likely to see the ad as they pass by. A mobile billboard truck can also be used in areas where restrictive zoning laws may prevent traditional billboards from being erected in certain areas. These advertisements can also be seen more easily by pedestrians and therefore the use of such a vehicle may be practical near an area such as a popular outdoor shopping district or scenic boardwalk.

Also sometimes referred to simply as an advertising truck, a mobile billboard truck is a form of portable advertising that can be more effective than traditional billboards at gaining exposure. Such a vehicle typically consists of a truck pulling a long flatbed on wheels on which the billboard with one advertisement on each side is placed. While a traditional billboard often features a form of advertising that is clearly visible to passing motorists, there are some disadvantages to using billboards. They are fixed and hard to get to, meaning potential customers have to come to the board itself and changing, repairing or altering one can be costly and difficult.

A truckload of mobile billboards, however, provides similar exposure in terms of image size and impact, but allows the advertising to get to where people already are. This means that these types of advertisements can be used to reach people who are not located in an area where billboards are regularly used or visible. Some regions may have zoning laws that prevent the use of large visual obstructions, such as traditional billboards, in the area. A mobile billboard truck allows advertisers to bypass those restrictions and reduces street-level advertisements while preserving the large size to easily grab viewers’ attention.

Since the billboard is at street level and connected to a truck, it also makes maintaining and replacing advertisements much easier. Traditional billboards usually require someone willing to get on the billboard and do maintenance in a difficult situation. The sign on a moving billboard truck is easy to work with and the image on the billboard itself can be easily switched to another. A truck of moving billboards features prominently in the climactic sequence of the film The Forty Year Old Virgin in which the main character is accidentally thrown through such a billboard.
