Landscape Trucks 

Landscape trucks provide all the functionality of a trailer, while keeping equipment safe, organized and easy to access. For example, add a dovetail ramp to a box truck or van body. This allows equipment and tools to be kept out of sight and out of mind. An open landscape body allows you to lower one side at a time, making it easy to load and unload push mowers and other large equipment. Install drop down side gates for easy access to mulch, fertilizer, or if you need to use a forklift.  There are a variety of storage boxes, hooks and shelving options available to help organize smaller tools and miscellaneous items.

Mobile Boutique

Mobile boutiques are becoming increasingly popular. They are cost efficient and trendy, making it easy to reach a larger customer base. Outfit box trucks with everything needed to set up a successful mobile boutique, such as hanging racks, drawers, shelves, counters and dressing rooms. Wire them to meet your lighting and power needs while making sure everything is up to code. Add awnings for extra display space and shade for shoppers.
