Commercial Building Maintenence Company Uses Box Truck


This 1993 Mitsubishi Cab-Over Box Truck is being used for the storage and transport of the tool- of-the-trade for commercial cleaning. Notice the lift-gate used for lifting and lowering heavy objects into the back of the truck. This 1993 truck has 350,000 miles on it and is still being used every day for the needs of the business.

This day the crew was pressure washing the entryways and halls of this multi-unit residential complex.


Tommy Gate Lift Gate shown lowered. It folds up against 
the rear overhead door frame while transporting  over the road.


Pressure washer can easily be loaded with the Tommy Gate Rail-Lift



A close-up view shows the use of the wall space to carry reels of hose, step ladders and other tools. The plywood walls are outfitted with E-Track which allows attachments such as hooks to hang the various tools and hoses, cables on.

Notice the shelving at the front of the box, its appears to be made with wood framing and plywood. These shelves appear to hold some of the smaller tools and supplies.

The Tommy Gate Rail-Lift gate is used to lift the heavy equipment used for cleaning into the back.
