What type of truck or van do you guys prefer to use for service work and why?
Maybe the Low-VOC cement and primers might have changed conditions, but there might still be good reasons (spelled O-S-H-A) to not have those items occupying the same airspace as the service vehicle occupants.
A few threads over the last few years
We use Ford Ecoo-Line 150 vans, we ony do service work, we have a full shelving and drawer system inside and that works very well for us.
I like Chevy Astro Vans. Unfortunately GM quit making them in 2005. It figures.
We're still using service body trucks.
Crew cabs for the install crews
and Extended Cabs for service guys.
i have a utility body, one of my service techs drives a van with a service body, the other one drives a transit.
they all have they advantages and disadvantages. i like the truck because its more quiet. the van can hold more stuff, and the transit had very good gas mileage.
think about what you need the vehicle to do and outfit accordingly.
Cadillac Escalade. It handles better and gets better mileage than a van. Solvents go in a converted cooler that seals them up quite nicely.
