We can simply define a cube van as an enclosed trailer placed on the chassis of a vehicle such as a Ford chassis cab. On the other hand, the cube van can be configured in much more complex and customized ways than a trailer.
We can all agree on one thing: the main function of the cube van is transporting goods. Many contractors use this type of vehicle for transportation. Ford models built as a cube van offer a great value because of many and varied reasons.
The cube van offers plenty of space in length, width and height, hence the “cube” moniker! The length of the cube van is usually between 12 and 18 feet. The width and height vary depending on the length of the cargo area.
The interior and exterior layout of the cube is unique to each owner: one could insulate the walls, refrigerate the interior or add shelves or drawers for perishable goods. The cube van can also be configured to simply protect the electrician’s or plumber’s larger equipment from the elements. Partitions are also available to enhance the safety of cabin occupants during sudden movements of the vehicle that could shift the equipment. Some configuration options provide direct access between cab and cargo area. Common options are available, i.e.: rear ramp, side door or rear bumper with a step. Design your own configuration to complete your Ford truck.
The cube van is an essential tool for contractors, plumbers, electricians, industrial painters, janitorial services, couriers, municipal services, caterers, and for any company that is always on the move.
