Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most popular van upfits?

Interior organizational options such as shelves, partitions, drawers, storage containers, and workbenches are some of the most popular choices among van upfitting clients. In the past, these options were typically offered in standardized packages. Today, however, upfitters are offering more custom solutions to fit the needs of various industries, businesses, and patrons. 

Safety equipment is another in-demand upfitting option. From interior stepladders, backup cameras, and remote start systems to grab handles and drop-down ladder racks, there are endless ways to upfit the interior of a van and make it safer for staff and patrons alike. 

Finally, many van upfitters are beginning to work with lightweight materials like composite in lieu of heavier, old-fashioned materials. This improves the fuel efficiency of a vehicle, cutting back on overhead costs and lowering a business’s environmental footprint.

What van brands can be upfitted?

It’s possible to upfit a wide range of van brands, including Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Dodge Promaster, Ford Transit, Chevy, and Nissan. In recent years, smaller van upfits have become very popular. When built on a smaller chassis and coupled with an optimized floor plan, these vehicles cut down on manufacturing costs for businesses. 

At Summit Bodyworks, we upfit a variety of van brands and vehicle types. The brand of vehicle you choose will depend on your needs for the van — whether you need a large cargo van, a food truck, a mobile library, an emergency response vehicle, or something else entirely.

What industries need a customized van?

Customized van options are growing in demand across industries. As businesses of all types seek to improve productivity and cater to patron preferences, having the ability to design a vehicle down to the minute details is becoming more and more important. Hospitals and clinics may use customized vehicles to operate as mobile clinics, ambulances, and testing labs. Schools and universities can use van upfits as pop-up libraries, recruiting centers, and practice labs.

Construction and repair businesses, such as HVAC companies, plumbers, and electricians, are setting an industry trend by utilizing a growing number of cargo van upfits to transport materials and equipment. In addition, vans are frequently customized and upfitted into cargo vans for the restaurant and agricultural industries.

How long does a typical van upfit take?

A van upfit can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple weeks, depending on the type of upfit, the brand of the vehicle, availability of materials, amount of customized options, and other factors. A typical van upfit will start with the chassis selection. Once the right chassis has been delivered, it will be prepped for installation. After that, other exterior options, such as LED lights, ramps or wheelchair lifts, and concession windows, will be installed. The interior of the vehicle will then be outfitted with shelves, partitions, drawers, storage units, bins, and any other custom solutions that are necessary for the type of vehicle.
