Service Bodies For Utes, Trailers & Trucks

Businesses Australia-wide are moving from vans to ute service bodies for their mobile workers.

Right across the country trades and service businesses are making the move from using vans to Hidrive ute service body canopies for their mobile workforce fleets. Not only do utes provide better driver comfort and positioning relative to vans, they also offer superior access to difficult sites in all types of terrain, and enhanced driver comfort.

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should join the trend from a van for a Hidrive ute service body:

Ergonomic Access

Hidrive ute service body canopies deliver ergonomic access and protection to tools of trade against the elements all year round. Many businesses realise that utes with a fit-for purpose Service Body help them to retain  workers with better skill-sets, and the demand for a fully featured Hidrive service body is growing for a myriad of reasons.

Improved Safety

There are many safety features of having a ute over a van. Namely, utes by comparison have higher ANCAP Safety Ratings that range from 4 to 5 stars. The addition of a service body enhances this safety element by providing tool storage at a safe working height.

Working position, working from the ‘outside in’ not ‘inside out’.

With a Hidrive service body you are able to easily access tools and equipment from the outside in. Rather than with a van where you must climb inside, a ute service body will allow you to stand and simply reach in for safe and easy access to your required equipment.  Furthermore, the gullwing doors offer excellent weather protection whilst working from your Hidrive Service Body.

Protection for Tools and Equipment

The safety benefits of driving a ute with a service body also extends to protecting tools and valuable equipment. A Hidrive ute service body canopy provides a better solution for safe and secure storage of your tools of trade.

Make the Switch: Look to the Leaders

If your workforce needs a safe mobile workspace to carry the tools that help you to get the job done, Hidrive’s Australian made ute service body canopies are the perfect solution. In a ute you are able to store your tools in an ergonomic, organised matter and concentrate on getting the job done.
