Moving Larger Items More Easily and Efficiently

 






Cargo van versus a box van? When you need a bit more room, the box van will do the trick. And, because this is a cutaway van, it is exactly like a cargo van in the front with a frame on the rear designed to accommodate a box van body, allowing more space in width and height for carrying larger loads. Because it is a cutaway van, it sits lower to the ground, making it easier to load and unload, giving it a lower center of gravity for more stability, and making it easier to get in and out of the cab as well.

This unit has a 6.6 gas V8, automatic, AC, and more creature comforts. It has good visibility and is easy to drive and especially easy to maneuver in the city. The Supreme van body is made of FRP for maximum durability and longevity, with two E-track retaining systems to manage loads.

This Crew Cab Combo Body Is An Excellent Choice

 







This may be the perfect work truck for your business because this great Royal 10' Combo Body is mounted on the Chevrolet 3500HD Crew Cab chassis. It is equipped with the 6.6 Gas V8, automatic transmission, A/C, and a long list of creature comfort features. There is plenty of room for team members to comfortably ride to and from jobs.

Service Combo Body Features:

With a 3′ Work platform in place of the rear compartment, the Royal combo service body transforms a regular service body into a mobile workstation. With removable gates and various options, this body is perfect for craftsmen who need ample storage and workspace. Rain gutters above and weather stripping inside all doors ensure tools and equipment stay protected from the elements, while Ignition key-coded, Fortress 5-point locking compartments and an internal master lock as an option provide unprecedented security.

Portable trays in top lids and ergonomic D-shaped handles highlight a body engineered with productivity and ease of use in mind. With a heavy-duty, forklift-loadable over-cab ladder rack, bamboo slats with stainless-steel posts for the rear platform, and heavy-duty dock bumper as standard features, the Royal combo service body is equipped to tackle just about any demand.

Understanding Commercial Vehicle Lines of Credit | GM Financial


A commercial line of credit is a quick and easy way to add new vehicles to your fleet. 

Although a bank loan is a reliable way to purchase or lease a new vehicle, the approval process can slow you down. If you need multiple vehicles, you’ll need to repeat that process for each one, costing you even more valuable time. 

But securing a line of credit is different. After a simple one-time application, you can quickly add vehicles when you need them.

You might call this great truck your workshop on wheels. It is easy to see all the space in the outer compartments and the vast cavern of space on the inside, with some shelves to boot. Because this chassis is a 3500 Express Cutaway unit, it maneuvers easily where you may need to go.

Here's a great cargo mover. We begin with the Chevrolet Express Cutaway chassis with 6.6 V8, Automatic, AC, and plenty of comfort features.

This unit is equipped with a tuck-away style liftgate to lift heavy items and save on the human back and spine. Don't forget the billboard space on the sides and back!

Heavy-Duty Landscape Dump Is Also A Looker!

 





What a great-looking truck, and the real value is the work this heavy-duty truck will do. We begin with the Silverado Medium-Duty 6500 chassis with a 23,500 lbs gross vehicle weight rating. Next, it has the 6.6 Duramax diesel and HD Allison automatic transmission. Though this is a serious work truck, it is also loaded with creature comforts to make travel enjoyable. Because of the extra heavy-duty chassis, we can afford a larger truck body to do more work with fewer trips. Mounted on this great chassis is a 16' Steel Landscape Dump Body by Universal Truck Body. This body will carry more landscape materials or worksite debris and has a built-in tarp to cover the load.
