The process of upfitting a step van for ISP contractors is straight-forward with MAG Trucks. Only a select few dealers within the US have the certifications and approval processes in place to modify used step vans to meet ISP standards. Let’s take a look at how MAG Trucks does this, and why MAG continues to offer the largest selection of both new and used step vans on our lot, ready for Independent Contractors.
Step 1 of the Process of Upfitting a Step Van for ISP
First, the upfitting process begins with acquiring the right step van. MAG Trucks buys fleets of used step vans from verified off lease programs. The use of the trucks in their previous lifetime ranges from linen and medical delivery trucks, to beverage trucks. With our vast knowledge and extensive experience within the used ISP truck industry, MAG Trucks is confident on what to look for when purchasing step van fleets. We are able to get the trucks in large quantities, driving our cost down, consequently passing those savings on to our independent contractors.
Second, each step van undergoes a mechanical inspection within the process of upfitting a Step Van to make it ISP ready.
The process is standard and as follows:
- Once delivered to MAG Trucks headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, the used step vans will undergo a 110-point mechanical inspection by our onsite mechanic.
- All step vans will have a road drive test performed.
- The units are plugged into the latest computer technology for diagnostics, in which our certified mechanic will review the results.
- Based on the issues that arise, the step vans are not only repaired mechanically to DOT standards, but also above and beyond to meet ISP standards.
Continuing to Step 3 of the Process of Upfitting a Step Van for ISP
Third, as we continue to explain how MAG Trucks modifies Used Trucks, it’s important to understand the stringency of ISP guidelines for used Contractor trucks. MAG modifies step vans to ISP standards, ensuring Independent contractors are ready to hit the road without any issues once they purchase the truck. Every truck leaves the manufacturing floor looking brand new.
Each truck upfitted in MAG's facility will receive the following:
- Complete Repaint: current paint blasted off and repainted with a custom white paint job
- ISP Shelving meeting the current required standards
- Brand new full color back up camera
- Fire extinguisher
- Safety triangles
- Jump seat
