Normally when you think of a home delivery van you think of a big box on the back of a chassis cab. Its usually parked in a cul-de-sac or street getting in everyones way.
We were asked by an established retail chain, to build a compact, economical and manouverable van that could be designed around their requirements to carry a certain number of crates of both frozen and chilled produce at the same time.
Here is our solution. At a fraction of its cost!!
Using the very popular Ford Transit Custom Fridge Van as the chassis we came up with the perfect solution. The hardest part of the job was finding enough space but because all our fridge van conversion are handbuilt it means we are not as restricted with how we use the space in our fridgevans as some of our competitors.
The front section is the freeze section with the rear section running at chill. The 2 compartments were seperated by the means of a fixed bulkhead with a fan kit system transferring the air from the frozen front into the rear.
The racking then had to be built with incredible accuracy to allow all the crates to not only fit in the van but to move freely in and out every time, saving time and quite a bit of frustration for the driver. we even put a grabhook in to help reach the back crates.
The conclusion is we have built a home delivery van that has reduced the customers fuel, reduced their carbon footprint and is more manouverable and less likely to get in peoples way and get damaged. More important of all it is now far easier for the driver to access the crates than the traditional box style home delivery vans
