HydraMaster Launches ‘Find A Cargo Van’ Web Portal
MUKILTEO, Wash.—December 2, 2021—Among the many supply chain issues impacting the cleaning industry, the cargo van shortage has become a significant concern. Bloomberg News, the Wall Street Journal, and many auto industry websites and publications detail the ongoing shortage in new cargo vans. Yet thousands of cleaning and restoration companies are thriving as we enter the new year and will be looking for cargo vans to serve their needs.
Additionally, the demand for direct drive truckmounts is higher than ever due to expanding small engine emission restrictions in California. Direct drive truckmounts are most often installed in new or virtually new cargo vans and are currently limited to installation only in Chevy Express, GMC Savana, or Ford Transit cargo vans. These limitations exacerbate the shortage for cleaners. Slide-in users who want to expand often still want to do it with a new van rather than a used high mileage van. However, when cleaning and restoration companies are going to their normal fleet source for their next van, whether it be inside or outside of the industry, they are often finding that their regular source has no vans available.
To help in these challenging times, HydraMaster developed a FREE web portal to help you find the right van for your cleaning and restoration business. It includes direct links to the nationwide (U.S.) inventory searches for cargo vans from Chevy, GM, Ford, RAM, and Mercedes. The cargo van portal also provides specific guidance on how to use and navigate these websites, including a supporting “how-to” video and a list of things to consider as you search.
