Here at Van Extras, our team of specialist fitters can undertake a wide range of special projects and kit out commercial vehicles to detailed specifications. We have experience in completing bespoke jobs for customers over the past 8 years for commercial vehicles in a wide range of functions and industries. For example, one of our most recent projects was kitting out a mobile editing suite in the back of a van on behalf of Pinewood Studios.

No job is too small or large for us and we have dedicated specialists who are qualified to undertake tasks such as installing electronics by Ionic Systems and protecting the interior of vehicles using IP 1000. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any enquiry or ideas you may have for preparing your vehicle so it is fit for its purpose. We are happy to work to your specification or even advise on the most practical and cost effective solution based on our experience. The work shown below gives just a small window into the extent of our expertise.

Cages

Should you need a bespoke cage to fit the load area of your vehicle, we can design, manufacture and fit a robust and reliable solution. Shown below is a cage we constructed for a Renault Master Tipper.

  

Refrigeration

If you are looking to use your commercial vehicle to transport perishables or deliver food as part of a catering service, a refrigerated or freezer van is essential. We can install refirdgeration equipment, hygenic lining and provide storage shelves as well as display racking for the produce. One example of bespoke refridgeration conversion we carried out was on a high roof Ford Transit to be used as a butchers van.

     

Bespoke Conversions

In addition, we can carry out custom projects for specialist vehicles, please call us for more details.

One example of such a project is the Volkswagen Crafter we converted into a high pressure drain cleaning van as shown below.

     

Another bespoke conversion we carried out was on a MWB Ford Transit for a fire prevention company. The doors and floor of the van were coated with red IP 1000 including a special skirting before Sortimo Globelyst racking was installed on both sides of the vehicle.

  

Below are pictures of a Nissan Navara we have recently converted for use by a locksmith. The customer came to us wanting to make use of his private vehicle for work purposes after having recently decided to start up a locksmith's business. It is a good example of how Van Extras can advise, create a solution and complete a project even when the customer is not quite sure how to make the best use of their vehicle.

  

Shown below is a Volkswagen Transporter T5 short wheelbase converted into a crew cab. We fitted carpet lining on the walls and a grey hexagrip floor to give a genuine minibus feel. We fitted a rear row of three M1 tested seats and an aftermarket midsection bulkhead to separate the crew cab from the rear load area. In addition, we fitted 2 windows down the side of the vehicle, with a privacy tinting, to let light into the newly created rear area of the cab.

  

Pictured below is a Citroen Relay that we converted into a Mobile Dog Grooming Parlour. This involved running wiring, plumbing and insulation in the panels of the vehicle then creating a partition wall before applying a IP 1000 coating to the both sections of the load area. A skylight in the roof, a window in the side load door and a window in the bulkhead were also fitted. Then the final fixtures and fittings were installed in order to make it into a fully functioning grooming parlour complete with electricity and hot and cold running water.

       

IP 1000

We can provide load area protection for your van or pick-up truck with a IP 1000 application at our head office in Brentwood, Essex. Please click below to see our product page for examples of our work with IP 1000 maximum strength liner:

Sortimo Racking

We are an official Sortimo installation centre and can help deliver the best racking solution for your vehicle. We can work with you on a unique design of the most appropriate solution for your vehicle and it's use. Once satisfied with the design, we will order and install the parts in your vehicle for you to provide your completed racking. In addition, the racking can be removed at the end of the vehicle's lifespan to be transferred to a newer model.

An example of a Sortimo installation in a Ford Transit is shown in the pictures below:

     

Also, another example of a Sortimo racking install, this time in a Mercedes Sprinter for an IT company is shown below:

      

The following are two examples of how Sortimo racking can be incorporated into smaller vans to ensure you get the best use of limited load space. First of all, below are pictures of Sortimo racking from the standard range fitted into the new Transit Connect 2014 including driver's side racking and sobogrip floor:

    

Sortimo also produce the Simpleco range for small vans which is lightweight wall mounted racking designed to keep the floorspace of the load area free. This allows for maximum use of the space, avoiding the problem of stock taking up the whole floorspace. This install in a Citroen Berlingo also included a bulkhead with a loading hatch:

    

Ionic Systems

We are an official service and installation centre for Ionic Systems "Reach and Wash" window cleaning equipment. As well as providing mobile servicing, spares and repairs, we can install a new system in your vehicle and advise on the best equipment to use.

For an example of a Ionic systems installation, along with a IP 1000 application from Van Extras, please see the pictures below:

  

Glass Frails

We can fabricate and install internal and external glass carrying frails for small, medium and large vans. These are manufactured from aluminium and rubber and  can be fitted with spring loaded shoring poles as an optional extra. External frails come with a fold down kick board, reflective safety tape and can be fitted with or without a Rhino roof rack. Internal frails can be fitted with a ply shelf behind for storing long items.

Please see below for some examples of the various frails we have fitted:
