Van shelving is the foundation for any commercial vehicle upfit. However, there are many components to consider before you start purchasing and installing Ford Transit shelving systems, including your industry’s needs and the height and length of your van.
There are many commercial van shelving solutions in the market, but it’s best to choose a shelving package that best aligns with your industry’s needs. Each shelving package for the Ford Transit is styled for both low and high roof commercial vehicles. Here are some of the shelving packages we offer based on your industry:
This shelving package is a great starting point for companies in the general service industry, including painters, machinery service, building maintenance, and more. The general service shelving package includes the Fleet Series (Hybrid Aluminum/Steel) shelving unit, which provides modular flexibility for your work vehicle. It also comes with durable shelf bins and dividers for better cargo space organization.
In addition to the Fleet Series shelving unit, shelf bins, and dividers, the package comes with Compact Drawer Cabinets. There are three drawer options to choose from:
- Lockable 2-Drawer Cabinet: This drawer option is generally used for hand tools.
- Lockable 3-Drawer Cabinet: Like the 2-Drawer Cabinet, this style is typically used for hand tools.
- 9-Drawer cabinet with dividers: This drawer model is typically used for hardware and parts.
Like the general service package, the HVAC industry shelving package includes the Fleet Series shelving unit. Its aluminum, steel, and composite construction provide maximum value to your work vehicle’s cargo area.
Shelf bins and dividers are ideal for separating your most used tools and equipment such as screwdrivers, pliers, wrenches, cutters, and more. Compact Drawer Cabinets are also included in the HVAC industry shelving package. These cabinets are essential for handling and transporting smaller tools and parts.
The HVAC industry works with a lot of heavy and bulky equipment. The HVAC package includes holders specifically for welding and refrigerant tanks. This eliminates the equipment from getting damaged while traveling and protects the investment of your work van and its flooring.
Lastly, the HVAC industry works with various coolants and solutions that need to be stored in a safe environment. The HVAC shelving package also includes a 4-Level Refrigerant Bottle Holder that secures the solutions during transit.
The plumbing industry requires a lot of tools to do its job efficiently. The Fleet Series shelving unit provides plenty of space for all your equipment and materials. In addition to the Fleet Series shelving unit, the plumbing shelving package includes lockable cabinets and storage bins to organize your tools.
We upfit many commercial vehicles for the plumbing industry. Plumbers often choose to install parts storage cabinets in addition to the Fleet Series shelving unit because they enable workers to organize the essential tools for the job in a handy carrying case. When the parts carrier is no longer needed, workers can place it back in the cabinet and ensure that it’s secure for transit.
Like the other shelving packages, the electrical package includes the Fleet Series shelving unit, storage bins, dividers, and drawers. However, electrical companies require additional cargo van accessories. Work van accessories include hooks to hang lengthy cables and the Ranger Design Wire Reel Holder. These accessories make an electrical technician’s job easier to access the materials they need outside the cargo area.
The delivery and carrier industry shelving package is set up much differently than other packages. In the delivery shelving package, carrier companies use the Fold-Away Series shelving unit to maximize interior cargo space.
Its aluminum, steel, and composite construction can hold up to 250 pounds with extra deep shelves for bulkier items. The shelving unit’s gas shocks lock shelves in the up or down position, depending on the size of the packages.
Advantage Outfitter’s customer-centric vision allows us to help you choose a van shelving solution that’s best for your industry and commercial vehicle model. Start the conversation with us today on how we can be your partner in upfitting your Ford Transit.
The height and length of your Ford Transit plays a crucial role in how you should upfit your work vehicle. Each of our Ford Transit shelving packages come in different sizes depending on the roof height. If your commercial vehicle has a high roof, we have the opportunity to install taller shelves that provide more storage space toward the roof rather than across the floor of your vehicle. With a high roof, we can implement up to one or two more additional shelves.
As a leading commercial vehicle upfitter, Advantage Outfitters partners with industries across the board to help them optimize their work van operations. Including the Ford Transit model, we work with various commercial vehicle makes and models to ensure you’re getting the best solution for your industry needs. Ready to start upfitting your work van?
