Various commercial business ventures require operators to purchase commercial vehicles or convert their existing rides into multi-use automobiles. For instance, if you're trying to get a property preservation company started you will need a vehicle that is big enough for you to bring along several lawn mowers, weed whackers, toolboxes, 2x4s and cleaning supplies. Pickups can be converted with truck utility bodies while minivans can be converted by removing the back row of seats. Here are some other suggestions you can follow to take cars you already have in your possession and modify them to help further your commercially based business.
Turning Minivans Into Commercial Cars
Although minivans may still be commonly associated with soccer moms, they have become decidedly more universally appealing. Close in size to SUVs but generally more fuel efficient, you can keep a gently used minivan up and running with minimal repairs and a reasonable amount of maintenance. There's no way for you to convert a minivan with truck utility bodies, but you can do a lot with this vehicle's interior. Turn the hidden storage compartment into an organized area to keep tools, or install storage racks on the sides of your minivan so that you're able to grab what you need to work and go.
Getting More Use Out of Pickup Trucks
The go-to vehicle for commercial business owners will always be the pickup truck. At the same time, you will get a lot more out of your vehicle as well as your investment if you make a few key adjustments. For one, truck utility bodies should always be installed on standard pickup trucks if you need to carry hundreds of tool, transport ladders, or provide any kind of specialized service. Keeping your tools locked up outside of your vehicle will give you better access to all of the tools of the trade.
Attaching a Hitch to a Standard Sized Sedan
Last but not least, commercial business owners have the option of working with what they have in the form of standard sized and compact vehicle. The fact of the matter is that you're not going to have the ability to fit a whole lot of stuff into the back of a hatchback car, but a hitch can be attached. Installing a hitch on a standard sized car will allow you to tow a trailer with extra storage room, and you can even continue to operate your vehicle with a standard driver's license.
