Citroen dispatch dog cage van conversion


Here you can see a recent dog cage van conversion we have carried out on a Citroen dispatch van. This medium sized van is a great van for housing dog cages due to its boxy shape allowing maximum cage sizes with easy access. The client who owns this van opted for a 2 up 2 down configuration for the rear section of this van. the 2 up 2 down configuration allows for 2 large-medium sized cages on the lower level, perfect for housing medium to large size dogs such as Labradors. the second tier of dog cages at the rear of this van allows for housing and transport of smaller dogs.

the grey flooring shown Inside the van is our water-resistant material that allows for easy cleaning and reduction of smells and stains. The water-resistant flooring is also added to the upper tier of cages.

as you can see each cage is fitted with high quality locking mechanisms to ensure secure housings for the animals.

The middle section of the van has been fitted with a partition allowing for this area to be used either as 2 medium sized dog cages or 1 very large dog cage. This area can also be used as an escape route for the animals housed in the cages at the rear of the van. In the event of a crash the back walls of the rear dog cages can be quickly opened to remove the dogs from the van without using the rear doors.


Benefits of adding our van racking to your van.

Why do you need racking installing in your van?

Well how long have you wasted this week searching around on the floor of your van? Looking under different tool boxes and fixing bags, until you found the item you were looking for? Imagine if you could have found that item within couple of seconds? Imagine how much time you could save over a year, if everything in your van was neatly organised and easily accessible.

That is what the van racks we offer at Vans A La Mode can offer you, saving on time and convenience.

wooden van racking in manchester

We have 2 main types of van racking, wooden van racking is our standard product. The wooden van racking can be configured to fit most types of van makes and models (Ford Transit, Renault Traffic, VW T5 Transporter, Mercedes Sprinter, etc) and suit all different wheelbases and roof heights. We can install our wooden van racking to one wall or both walls of your van. we can also add some systems to the bulkhead areas.

Our wooden shelving is available with dividers and pigeon holes to help keep the back of your van tidy and organised, saving time and money.

Beyond our wooden van racking we have our metal van racking systems. These van racks can give the same improvements as our wooden van racking but give the added bonus of being able to store and transport wet items and heavy items with out causing any damage.

Another benefit of the metal van racking systems we supply at Vans A La Mode is that they can also be removed and refitted into future company vans, so although they cost more than our wooden van racking, they can save you money long term as if looked after they should last year and years.
