What is chassis conversion?
There are plenty of vans on the market, but sometimes buyers need a tailor-made solution for their business needs. That's where the van conversion market comes into play. Conversions take basic vans and fit them out with bespoke kits to make them suitable for all sorts of jobs.
What types of chassis conversions are available?
Chassis conversions can come in many shapes and forms. The most common are:
- tail lift
- tipper / tipper cage
- box body
- low-floor Luton (loloader)
- camper van
- crew van
Where can I get my vehicle converted?
While DIY conversions are available, if you're buying a new van with plans to convert it for your business, then a professional installation is a far better solution. We have recommended conversion companies that deal with us directly, meaning the van conversion will be approved by the manufacturer, and the van's existing warranty should remain intact.
A professional conversion will need to be type-approved before it's allowed on the road. In the case of manufacturer-sourced conversions, these will be type-approved in bulk so that they can be sold straight to buyers.
If you are carrying out a niche conversion, then you will need to go through Individual Type Approval. This requires your vehicle to be inspected and approved on an individual basis by the UK Vehicle Certification Agency.
