A Box Van Can Do A Lot Of Things Inexpensively - Nor Cal Ford Truck Club

Note: Please turn sound up!

Tom Garcia of Marathon Truck Body shows off a 14' Dry Van Body mounted on an E350 Cutaway Chassis. Check out the Lift-Assist on the cargo ramp! Those things are heavy, but this feature sure makes it easy. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are meaningful, like that sliding door without rattles.

Since a Dry Van Body is just a box on wheels, there is so many modifications that can be made to make it more useful for individual company use, such as, side doors, walk-up side door openings, windows, translucent roof, E-Track, plywood lining, Gelcoat lining with added insulation for refrigeration to just keep things cool or to keep them frozen. Plus there is the ramp as shown, liftgates, railgates, swing-away doors rather than roll-up doors and the list goes on and on.

This video was shot at a Nor Cal Ford Truck Club event in October 2015

About Nor Cal Ford Truck Club:

Our purpose is fulfilled by providing an opportunity and atmosphere for Northern California Ford Dealers to network with like-minded dealers, grow new or expand old friendships, have some good old fashioned fun together, learn a few things that help us in our business, and create partnerships for greater success.

Today our pride and joy is this wholesale novelty warehouse, which is operated by husband Ravi, my two son’s Shivam and Avineet and myself, Julz.  We are open seven days a week from 8am to 1pm, weather permitting.  Our hours change for the winter months.

Commercial and Residential Restoration - Alltek Restoration Inc.

925-757-6000 Corporate   
510-473-5070 Alameda 
209-910-5070 San Joaquin

Post loss conditions of a structure can be minor to severe predicated on the type of loss and its severity. Both small and large losses will require trained professionals to perform mitigation & restoration pertinent to the specific loss, followed by reconstruction to return property to pre-loss condition. It is imperative that your loss is assessed and the initial restoration efforts are performed correctly preventing further damage or distress to property and structure. Reconstruction is a very critical part in the process of restoring your property back to pre-loss condition.

All of our workers are trained, properly equipped and supervised by certified staff while handling all restoration & reconstruction projects. We produce high efficiency, quality work accompanied with superior customer service. We specialize in insurance restoration & reconstruction for damages resulting from Fire, Water, Smoke, Storm, Vandalism and Vehicle impact.

Water damage restoration: There are two large certifying bodies, the IICRC and the RIA, that recommend standards of care. Most companies in the restoration industry use the IICRC procedural standard, which is known as the S500. The S500 indicates the standards and techniques related to the current technology and proven service required to perform water restoration.

Fire damage restoration: Fire losses are often the most complex, after a structure or property has suffered fire damages they typically are accompanied by smoke and water damage. Smoke damage occurs as a direct result from the combustibles being burned and the water damages are a result from the excessive amount of water to extinguish the fire. The combination of these three can leave a property and structure severely distressed and damaged.

Smoke damage restoration: Smoke damage to a home and the restoration/remediation efforts used to properly restore structural or property are predicated and based on the type of combustibles that have produced the smoke and severity of the damage. Having a restoration professional performing the smoke damage remediation using the industries techniques and supplies will ensure the highest quality or removal of stain and odor removal.

Storm damage restoration: Structures or property damaged by rain, wind, hail, or the combination of any fall into this category. Storm damages often result in roofing components being compromised which could result in water intrusions resulting in interior damage. Strong winds can cause structural components to fail and long rains resulting in super saturated soils can also cause water intrusion. Storms can also cause trees to fall and impact a structure. The severity of damages a structure receives from a storm will greatly be impacted by the intensity of the storm and the deficient condition the storm has created. A timely response by trained professionals can often quickly remedy or reduce damages caused to a structure or property.

Prepare for Your Home Sale with a Pre-Listing Home Inspection from SitePro

SitePro is dedicated to providing you with valuable information about your new home through new home inspections and other professional home inspection services. Our home inspectors thoroughly inspect all major components of the subject property to expose unknown defects and advise you about future maintenance about your home once the purchase is complete. SitePro will give you the information you require to make an informed decision.

Pre-Listing Home Inspection

The Panhandle area continues to grow. Moreover, most homes appreciate 7-15% annually. As a result, many homeowners have discovered the benefits of building homes, living in them for a few years and then moving on to a larger home. Hence on any given day, one can see homes that are 2-5 years old in a neighborhood with FOR SALE signs in the front yard.

Think of all that goes into selling a home–the cleaning, the garage sale, the worry, the uncertainty, finding the mortgage professional to get a new loan, and then finding a real estate professional to sell the house–And that is before you even start looking for a new home and neighborhood! The last thing on your mind is a Pre-Listing Home Inspection. Yet, it could be the most important thing you do to prepare for your home sale.

Why a Pre-Listing Home Inspection??? Sure your home was in great shape when you built it. Or was it? Were you one of those who laughed at your neighbors and decided a New Home/Builder’s Warranty Inspection was not for you? Are you sure you caught everything the home builder might have forgotten or are there things that you are uncertain are in as good of shape as you thought. Why take the risk of selling your home and then having a BUYER HOME INSPECTOR find countless issues that will cost you thousands off the price and maybe even cost you the sale. For a small fraction of the cost of your home, have the peace of mind that your home is in good condition.

More Reasons Why…

  • There’s no waiting for a potential buyer to order a home inspection.
  • Hassle Free Home Sale
  • You’ll impress buyers with proof of your home’s condition inside and out.
  • Correct problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that could delay closing.
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through.
  • Get a better price for your home.

Ask yourself, if you were buying your home…would you buy yours which had a Pre-Listing Inspection or the one that didn’t…That answer is simple-Yours!
