Van Shelving and Storage Solutions

It is a proven fact that an organized vehicle increases work flow efficiencies and reduces inventory damages. We offer solutions for your commercial vehicles, including cargo vans, pickup trucks, cargo trailers, and more.

At Messer, we love creating storage solutions that make work vans work better. Here are a few ways we can meet your storage needs.  


Vans that work smarter

In the past few years we’ve seen a seismic shift in choice for job-site vehicles. Many businesses are switching from using pickups or larger trucks with service bodies to driving vans.

One reason is the lower cost of operating a van over a truck. But there are more reasons, too.

The number one reason (by far) that people choose vans over trucks is customized organization.

Unlike a truck that is designed primarily to haul stuff, today’s modular systems let us create a true mobile workshop that keeps everything organized and increases on-site efficiency.    


Great access & convenience

While keeping tools organized and protected are reasons enough to get a van upfit, many tradespeople find the ability to stand up and work inside their van a huge plus. Getting out of the wind or rain to make a phone call, look over plans or even take a lunch break is a big improvement over sitting in a truck cab! Some of our customers even have us add a workbench or desk inside their van.
