Are you planning to buy a canopy for your ute? Are you aware of the various service body options? Do you know why many tradies choose a lift on canopy for their ute? In this blog post, you will learn about the various advantages of a lift on canopy and how you should go about choosing the right company for your lift on service body.
Following is a list of advantages you can expect to enjoy from a lift on service body:
This one is pretty obvious. With a lift on canopy, you get to enjoy the flexibility of two vehicles. You can use the same vehicle as your workhorse during the weekdays allowing you to carry your tools of the trade safely to work. When the weekend comes, you can just lift off the service body and take your vehicle out for some fun with motorbikes, surfboards or anything else you might want to carry in your ute.
You can also use the same canopy on multiple vehicles if you have multiple vehicles for your business. There is no need to order a separate canopy for each vehicle if you do not need to.
You are not restricted when you use a lift on canopy. It can be completely customised as per your requirements including under drawer units, ute trays and a heap of other accessories. In short, you will get a fully customisable canopy designed as per your needs with the additional flexibility of being able to lift it off, as and when needed.
If you resell your vehicle down the track, you’re more likely to get a higher resale value as a lift on canopy typically costs more compared to a standard canopy. Think of it like remodelling your bathroom or kitchen. When you invest in remodelling, you get to enjoy the latest appliances while you live in that house and then when you decide to sell your remodelled house, it should fetch you a great return.
There are a number of companies that specialise in making ute canopies but not all of them deliver true value for money. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right company for the lift on canopy for your ute:
This is sort of a given but not every company specialises in making high-quality canopies. You need to make sure you work with a company that manufactures their own service bodies using the highest quality materials. Specifications of the materials used for making the service body should be available on their website or when you receive a detailed quote from them.
There are many installers of off-the-shelf canopies but designing something from scratch is more of an art. You want a company that offers complete customisation and is capable of designing and manufacturing a canopy that meets all your requirements for work as well as for recreation.
A canopy doesn’t come cheap. You can expect to spend thousands of dollars on a decent quality canopy, so it goes without saying that you will want full value for your money. Therefore, make sure to choose a company that offers warranties and impeccable after-sales service for their products.
To summarise, there are various types of service bodies available in the market but a lift on canopy offers additional flexibility allowing you to use your vehicle for work as well as adventure. While there are a number of solutions for lift on canopies, it is better to work with a company that designs these canopies from scratch and has extensive experience in this industry. So, keep the above-mentioned tips in mind when choosing a company for your lift on canopy.
