If you're looking for a vehicle for your plumbing business, look no further than Gator Ford in Tampa. Gator Ford is one of only 650 authorized Ford Commercial Vehicle Centers. They can hook you up with the right vehicle, upfit it to your specifications, and service it over its lifetime.
Van, Cutaway, or Truck
A good plumbing vehicle can come in various forms, depending on preference. Most plumbers find that the Ford Transit has everything they're looking for. The Transit can be configured in dozens of ways. There are three roof heights to choose from and three body lengths. Gator Ford has partnered with local upfitters to outfit the interior and roof however you like it. And because the upfitters are local, you get the customization done fast. You can add shelving with bins and trays for pipe connections, hooks on the walls, latches and piping storage options on the roof, and more. With a payload capacity of 4,600 pounds, no job is too big for your plumbing truck.
In the back, there's also a power inverter, so you can run power for your tools straight out of the van no matter where you are. You'll probably be crisscrossing the county on various jobs. The Ford Transit comes with one of three engine options. We recommend the mid-tier engine, the 3.5L EcoBoost that delivers best-in-class maximum gas torque. There's also a potent diesel engine available.
Second, there's the Ford E-Series Cutaway. There are two seats up front and the rest is left to your imagination. Upfit the cutaway as a utility wagon for storage along the sides and in back. With local upfitters, a snap at Gator Ford. Under the hood, there's a powerful 6.8-liter Triton V10 engine with 305 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of best-in-class torque. With a payload of 5,200 pounds, you're not wanting for muscle.
Finally, if your plumbing business is just getting started, you might prefer a heavy duty truck or two. Gator offers Ford pickups and the Super Duty line of 250s, 350s, 450s, and beyond. Make your truck a plumber's dream with ramps for loading and unloading, Box Link to hold gear in place, and a built-in toolbox for the wrenches of your trade. Get the tonneau cover to protect your gear from the elements and theft. You can also haul a utility trailer and much more. The available towing capacity is 15,000 pounds for the F-250, 18,000 pounds for the F-350, and a whopping 21,000 pounds for the F-450.
As a plumber, you need a place for your gear, you need the power to move it rain or shine, and you need the versatility of power outlets and customizable options. Partnered with local upfitters, with a full-service commercial vehicle garage, and with plenty of used and new options, Gator Ford is more than prepared to serve your growing business needs.
