Hidrive Case Study - Service Bodies for Utes

Canberra Pest Control has had Hidrive build all our new vehicle service bodies for the last 3 years. The quality of the product is second to none and the after-sales service continues well after the vehicles are delivered. I highly recommend Hidrive and will continue to use their products and services for many years to come.

Innovation from the ground up

Our Process.

We pride ourselves on listening to understand your needs. Only then will we recommend what we feel is best to help you succeed. We have tailored our modular system to create over 20,000 unique builds since the 1990’s, meaning that you will benefit from lessons learned from similar jobs.

  • Email or chat with a Mobile Workspace Expert.
  • Depending on your needs, we will email reference information, perhaps including photos or videos of past builds to help to illustrate your options.
  • We willl arrange an on-site demo and/or call with your key stakeholders, including end-users.

Depending on the complexity of your job, we may supply drawings with your quote.

On the day your order is confirmed, we give you a delivery date based on vehicle availability. Our pre-production processes start now.

We have a dedicated customer care team that liaises with you, your dealer and Fleet Management Organisation. We find that this can dramatically improve delivery times, reduce administration and hassles with your fleet roll-out. Find out more

Once we have confirmed vehicle availability, we work to ensure your service body is produced to align with your vehicle arrival date.

This means we typically only require your ute for a week or two, getting you on the road sooner. 

We are the only service body manufacturer in Australia with a company-owned national installation network, ensuring consistency and ISO9001 quality compliance.

Typically, we require a Real Time Gross Settlement (RTSG) form, along with a 30% deposit or a purchase order from an approved customer to commence our delivery process. Your Hidrive Mobile Workspace Specialist will be able to assist you throughout the order confirmation process and answer all your queries. Alternately, please reach out for more information.

Hidrive Service Body Canopies are built with a multi-fit chassis to enable transfer to another brand vehicle, improving resale and the lifetime value of your investment. Some have been in use for over 20 years! A Hidrive on a Hilux might be transferred to a Ranger, then a BT-50, then a Navara, Amarok or a Triton! Re-use is greener than recycling!

In short, yes. While no system is infallible, Hidrive’s ‘positive seal” is well-known and well-regarded in the market for the ability to ensure the canopy remains dust and moisture free.

Equipping your assets with high-quality Hidrive accessories ensures compatibility, warranty and in the case of the tow bar, fit with the vehicle body length.

We drop the towbar to the right height, so there’s a safe gap between the tow-ball and your service body, avoiding hand jamming injuries when attaching / detaching trailers.

Finished height will depend on several factors such as the suspension and if appropriate, any upgrade to the suspension, the height of the canopy and other factors. Feel free to chat with a member of our team to help us better understand your requirements so that we might make a fit-for-purpose recommendation and estimate of the finished height, based on our experience.

There are three service body heights: 850/900/1000mm. While 850mm is our “streamlined” service body, the 900 and 1000mm allows for greater capacity to fit larger items and bigger loads.

Feel free to reach out to our friendly and knowledgeable Mobile Workspace Experts. They’re trained to understand vehicle axle loads and GVM regulation and compliance issues.

Yes, we have a showroom at all our manufacturing and installation facilities across Australia. Find your nearest Hidrive location here.

We often find that the best way to share the quality and difference in a Hidrive Service Body is to visit one of our showrooms to help understand how we can build a fit-for-purpose solution and also to help understand the process of delivery of your service body on time, with certainty.

Yes, we work closely with dealers, fleet management organisations (FMO’s) and finance companies to help ensure a seamless experience.

Please note that Hidrive does not guarantee that any business or individual will be eligible for finance.
