If you’re in the business of moving cargo, then we’d recommend a van. There are a few reasons that you might choose a van over a pickup truck. Here are our top three. 

  • The ceiling on a van cargo area keeps cargo safe from weather and intruders such as small animals or insects. 
  • The tall walls of a van cargo area mean that you don’t need to worry about tying down cargo which might spill over and fall out of your truck’s bed. 
  • The enclosed rear space of a van offers more possibilities for temperature control, shelving, and other upfitting solutions.
