Commercial Van Accessories ideas for your van

What is a commercial van?

Check out how you can pimp your ride with Commercial Van Accessories. A commercial vehicle can normally only carry around either two or three people, and there are loads of different types of commercial vans out there. The first one being the panel van, which is one of the most common types of commercial vans in the UK. This is due to the fact that it is very easy to drive, whilst carrying a suitable amount of load. The next type of commercial van that there is the double-cab-in-van. The double-cab-in-van is actually quite similar to the panel van, apart from the fact that it has a few extra seats and some rear windows. However due to these extra seats, there is actually less cargo space. For those of you who are still unsure as to what the difference is between a commercial and non-commercial van, then do not worry. A non commercial van is simply a van that is normally used to transport people instead of goods.
