Making deliveries can be exhausting, but there are many different accessories you can add to your delivery trucks to make them look better and make them more functional. When you purchase your step van you can ask your dealer if they can do the add-ons for you or you can find somewhere else to fix-up your step van. Here at MAG Trucks we can get the truck exactly how you want it before receiving it. Adding the accessories to your truck may appear unnecessary at first, but in the long-run it can help your entire company become more efficient.
Shelving is great if you need organization within your truck. Installing shelves in your truck to store your packages, tools, and other items eliminates stacking your items on the floor of your truck. A lot of delivery trucks have shelving in them, but if your current trucks don’t have shelves it would be something to consider. If you are looking to purchase new step vans visit www.magtrucks.com and see our inventory. We can install the shelves in the trucks for you, or we might have some trucks with shelves already in them.
Air Conditioning and Fans
Delivery drivers can get hot while they are on their route. Summer can be brutal in many areas and when drivers get how they tend to work slower. Air conditioning is already installed in many step vans but it will cost you a bit more. If air conditioning is not a priority to you, or your summers are not as brutal as other areas, fans would be a good option. Fans can be installed in the truck that aim towards that driver, which will really keep the driver cool during their delivery route.
Back-up Cameras and Sensors
Step vans do not have a rear-view mirror, and that can make backing up difficult. Installing backup cameras will make it easier on your driver and it will help prevent them backing into something that is behind them. Not only will backup cameras help your driver but adding sensors for backing-up will help too. Sensors will alert the driver if they are too close to something and they will know when to put on the breaks. Having a backup camera and sensors in your delivery trucks can immensely help your drivers and help prevent accidents to your trucks.
Life Gates, Ramps, and Dollies
Often deliveries are heavy and after doing several deliveries it can become exhausting with heavy items. Your driver may slow down on delivery time if they are lifting extremely heavy items throughout the day. Adding a lift gate to the rear of your step van can assist the driver with getting items out of the truck in a more efficient way. Also, adding ramps into your step vans can help the driver get into the truck and get the items in and out of the truck. Along with a lift gate and ramp, ensuring their is a dolly in all of your step vans can be extremely beneficial to the driver. They can get more items to the door quicker and easier. When adding these accessories to your truck it is important to remember that they will help your driver in the long-run and can increase the amount of deliverers that can be done in a day.
