What's the Best Truck for Electricians?

Electricians need the right transportation for their work. Much of the time, they are looking for a vehicle that will allow them to take along equipment and parts to avoid running back to the store or office. Some electricians will want to build a mobile workstation to take care of more complex jobs out in the field. Before purchasing a commercial vehicle, you need to think about what you want in a model for your business.


Custom Ride

One of the most important considerations when choosing a truck for an electrician is how it can be customized. An electrician who works on remote jobsites with a developer will need different features than one who works on residential homes already built. A commercial electrician may have unique requirements to meet job demands.

You may prefer a commercial van with a raised height where you can stand up and create a workstation. Another option is a cargo van, which can be outfitted with shelves, racks, and bins for your equipment and parts. Working on a remote jobsite might require you to have a truck with a trailer towing behind. It must be strong enough to tow heavy equipment or rolls of cable with an outlet to connect power tools.

What are Your Options?

Look at all options and the various benefits of each to decide which is the right choice for your electrician business.

Cargo vans provide a lot of storage. They are also easy to maneuver in tight spaces or handle city traffic congestion. Cargo vans are easy to park and keep everything secure and dry.

Another option is a service utility van. Slightly more costly than a cargo van, they offer more space and organization. Dividers allow you to organize items with shelving and cargo area lighting for working late in the day or with the doors closed. You can easily personalize them to fit your specific needs.

A third choice is the pickup truck, which is also one of the most popular. Trucks offer exceptional power, which is ideal if you need to tow a trailer to carry additional equipment. You can find trucks with storage bins or a cargo management system for lockable, easy accessed storage.

Within these three broad categories, you will find many different models. Each model will offer something special while all come with advanced technology and modern amenities. The focus is on convenience and performance to ensure your workday is more productive.

As you think about which model is right for your business, consider how you will grow and which models will best meet your needs today and for the future.
