Unique Ways To Customize Your Transport Truck

If you own a business that frequently ships large items, you may want to consider custom transport trucks. Custom transport trucks are designed to provide a safe and efficient way to ship your products.

There are many different customization options available, so you can choose the features that best suit your needs. Here are a few of the most popular modifications to consider:

Adding a Liftgate

A liftgate can be a valuable addition to your custom transport truck if you frequently ship large or heavy items. A liftgate is a platform that lowers down from the back of the truck, making it easy to load and unload heavy items.

Most liftgates can be operated manually or with a remote, so you can choose the option that best suits your needs. For manual operation, you will have to be present to raise and lower the liftgate. There's usually a lever inside the truck that you can pull to raise and lower the liftgate.

If you choose a remote-operated liftgate, you'll have the convenience of being able to operate the liftgate from outside the truck. This can be helpful if you're loading or unloading by yourself. However, you will need to make sure the remote is always with you, or keep a spare in the truck, in case you lose it.

Include a Side Door

Another popular modification you can consider is to add a side door to your custom transport truck. A side door can be helpful if you need to load or unload items from the side of the truck. It can make it easier to reach items stored in the back of the truck and provide a more convenient way to load or unload large items.

Most custom transport trucks have a standard side door that can be added as an option. However, you can also choose to have a custom side door installed. Custom side doors can be made to fit any size opening and can be equipped with features like windows, locks, or screens. Some even have special ramps that can be unfolded to make it easy to load or unload wheeled items.

Roll-up side doors are also quite useful if you need to save space inside the truck. Roll-up doors store in a cylinder above the door opening, so they don't take up any space inside the truck when they're not in use. This leaves more room for other items that need to be shipped.

These modifications only make sense if they're installed properly, taking into account the weight distribution of the custom transport truck and its contents. Make sure you only work with a skilled truck body builder to create a truck that perfectly suits your shipping needs.
