Detachable truck bodies: top 3 features emergency vehicles need

Detachable truck bodies are very handy for a wide variety of uses: a simple pick-up truck can be turned into a specialist vehicle for emergency services, industrial uses, military applications or more!The ability to customize is a key part of the appeal of a detachable truck body: it can be configured so that it suits the activities you’re going to use it for. It’s important that your detachable truck body provider listens to your needs and works together for a solution to them, rather than just offering a one-size-fits-all configuration. That way, you can maximize your ability to do your job, with one less thing to worry about!

Of course, in general, different emergency services will call for different configurations of detachable truck bodies, but there are certain universally important features that are crucial to consider in order for emergency service workers to be able to do their jobs right! Here’s three very important features to look for when deciding on which detachable truck body to choose, and how to configure it.

1. Space Management

It’s not just about the size, it’s how you lay it out that counts! Think about how you do your day-to-day work, and what sort of layout would suit you—if something needs to be at hand, can you reach it? Is there space for you to move when you need to? Is it tall enough that you’re not going to bump your head while going about your work? Can you get equipment out easily? Is there sufficient storage space? There are a lot of factors to consider when deciding on the best configuration for your detachable truck body. Talk with your provider about any specific needs you may have, and help them to understand the way that you do your job, so that they can optimize the space to make it easier for you to do your important work.

2. Lighting and power

The emergency services work that you do likely involves precise, careful activities that would be hard to do without proper lighting; so save the mood lighting for celebrating your successes at home afterwards, and make sure that you’re satisfied with the lighting system! It’s also important to choose a power system which will meet the needs of the work you do; the last thing you need is a power failure while you’re providing emergency care!

3. Ease of installation/removal
