The Mercedes Sprinter cargo van is one of the most efficient work motor vehicles in the market. To get the most out of your investment, it’s crucial to upfit the vehicle with high-quality organizational solutions.
There are many Sprinter shelving options to choose from. Before installing van shelving, it’s crucial to consider the industry you’re working in, accessories that would make your job easier, and the size of your vehicle.
Each company has its own rhyme and reason for van upfitting, and every industry has different van needs. Trade specific shelving options enable you to pick and customize a shelving solution that best aligns with your business’s needs.
If you’re a painter that wants to upfit their work vehicle, you wouldn’t want to implement the same shelving that an HVAC technician would use. Shelving packages for the Mercedes Sprinter come in a variety of styles, depending on your industry. For the Mercedes Sprinter, we provide shelving packages for the following sectors:
- General service
These industry shelving packages differ in setup and the types of shelving units. Although we supply industry shelving packages, individual shelf units are available as well. Our types of shelving units include:
- Fleet Series (Hybrid Aluminum/Steel): This style’s aluminum, steel, and composite construction offers two depth options. The Fleet Series is recommended for most van upfits because they are tough yet lightweight and bring maximum volume to your cargo area.
- Pro Series (All-Aluminum): This model supplies minimal weight with unmatched durability and appearance. No matter the industry you work in, the Pro Series is an excellent shelving solution for the most demanding professional.
- Fold-Away Series: The Fold-Away Series is ideal for the delivery and carrier industry. The shelving unit’s gas shocks lock shelves in the up or down position. It can hold up to 250 pounds per shelf with extra deep shelving for bulkier items.
The Mercedes Sprinter van is an efficient work vehicle that lasts you a long time. Although it’s a great vehicle, many upfit accessories help you get the most out of your investment.
An efficient storage solution is essential to ensure that you have everything you need when you need it. Van storage drawers enable your workers to access the most necessary tools and equipment without having to enter the van’s cargo area. These storage drawers are lockable, which allows you to focus on the job rather than worrying about your equipment’s potential security and theft threats.
In addition to van storage drawers, parts storage cabinets keep all your tools handy and secure during transit. Parts keeper units lock into place during transit so they don’t shift and are removable so you can take all the necessary tools with you on the job. They’re customizable, so you have everything you need and nothing you don’t. This enhances jobsite productivity because it limits the number of trips your workers have to make to and from the vehicle.
Sprinter van cabinets are great for storing tools, equipment, and additional material you may not use regularly. Since they’re not needed daily, workers tend to forget to check on them since it’s not at the top of their minds. Locked cabinets keep that equipment from getting stolen when you’re away on a project so you don’t have to worry about them. Work equipment is expensive, and it’d be a shame for it to get stolen. Protect your investments with lockable cabinets.
Van bin storage and dividers are a crucial organization tool that allows you to keep tools and equipment separate. Although shelving and cabinets are the foundation of an organized work vehicle, adjustable dividers enable you to know where everything is without mixing material.
Before you start upfitting your Mercedes Sprinter, you must first consider the height and length of your van. If your vehicle has a low roof, it’s crucial not to get the same upfitting equipment as you would a high roof because it won’t fit comfortably, if at all. In addition, if your van is shorter compared to other models, you don’t want to purchase a lot of upfit equipment that you can’t implement into your work van. Understanding the height and length of your van is vital to saving time, money, and energy going into upfitting your van.
