Mercedes Sprinters are great cargo vehicles to use for commercial purposes. However, it’s vital to upfit them according to your industry’s needs. Here are some tips on how to upfit your Mercedes Sprinter based on the industry you work in.
While there are endless cargo van shelving solutions for your Mercedes Sprinter, choose a shelving package that aligns with the needs of your industry. All Sprinter work van shelving models are customized for low and high roof commercial vehicles. They’re also customized for 144” and 170” wheelbases. Ranger Design industry shelving packages include:
This shelving solution is best suited for companies in the general service industry. These industries include painters, locksmiths, engineers, etc. The general service shelving package consists of the Fleet Series (Hybrid Aluminum/Steel) shelving unit, a durable yet lightweight shelving solution that offers modular flexibility for your mobile workspace. It also encompasses all-purpose shelving bins and dividers to maximize cargo space organization.
Along with the Fleet Series shelving unit, shelf bins, and dividers, the package includes side drawer systems. General service companies typically use drawer systems for storing power tools and parts that need to be easily accessible. However, it’s important to note that side drawer systems are included in the aluminum shelving package, but not the steel shelving package.
Like the general service shelving package, the HVAC shelving package includes the Fleet Series shelving unit. Its aluminum, steel, and composite makeup provide top-notch value to your mobile workstation’s cargo space.
In addition to working with heavy equipment, technicians in the HVAC industry work with many different coolants and solutions that need to be stored in a safe environment. This HVAC shelving package includes a 4-Level Refrigerant Bottle Holder that keeps these solutions in a secure environment throughout the day.

Plumbers require a variety of tools to do their job effectively. Plumbing shelving packages include the Fleet Series shelving unit because it offers enough space for all the tools they need for various projects. In addition to the Fleet Series shelving unit, this package includes lockable cabinets and storage bins to organize their equipment.
Like the general service industry shelving solution, the aluminum plumbing shelving package includes side door drawer systems for easy tool access. However, the side door drawer systems are not included in the steel plumbing shelving package.
In addition to Fleet Series shelving units, lockable cabinets, and storage bins, plumbing companies often install parts storage cabinets because they allow them to organize essential tools in a handy carrying case. Parts storage cabinets are customizable and can be designed for a specific project. When the parts carrier is no longer needed, workers can place it back in the cabinet and secure it down for transit.
Like other industry packages, the electrical shelving package includes the Fleet Series shelving unit, storage bins, dividers, and drawers. However, electrical companies require additional Sprinter cargo van accessories for their materials. Electrical shelving packages include hooks to hang cables and a reel holder, so you don’t get your wires crossed—pun intended. These additional van accessories make an electrician’s job easier to access the materials they need outside the cargo area.
Delivery and carrier shelving packages are organized much differently than the previous industry shelving packages. These shelving packages take advantage of the Fold-Away Series shelving units so they can maximize their interior cargo space.
The Fold-Away Series shelving unit is composed of aluminum, steel, and composite construction. It can hold up to 250 pounds and obtains extra deep shelves for irregular-shaped items. This shelving unit’s gas shocks lock shelves in the up or down position, depending on the size of the packages and space available in the cargo.
Storing ladders in the cargo area can take up a lot of valuable space. By installing rooftop ladder racks, you can easily access your ladder without jeopardizing space inside the van.
Some industry equipment is simply too long to fit inside your van. Cargo racks are great additions to your van equipment because it expands storage space and lets you transport gear on your rooftop securely and safely. Cargo racks include:
- Cargo bars
- Roof decks
- Conduit carriers
We know the well-being of your employees always takes top priority. Lift gates and ramps allow your workers to safely move heavy equipment and materials on and off the van.
