Welcome to the home of Blackhawk Industries' Convert-a-Cab line.
Convert-a-Cab products are the top in the industry for converting retired Ambulance chassis as well as former cube vans such as the ones used by the major rental agencies and others that cater to the moving and delivery crowd. Our innovation has opened up a whole new group of trucks that can be utilized for other purposes.
With the price of new trucks, this creates a niche market for good quality, used cab and chassis like those used by Ambulance companies. There are restrictions to how old or how many miles that an Ambulance chassis can have and still be insurable, when they reach this point, the Ambulance body is pulled and the remaining carcass may have less than 100,000 miles on it.
This is a mere pittance when it comes to delivery, Hot Shot trucks, Welding Rigs, Propane Trucks, Septic Trucks, and Livestock Haulers. The average cost after conversion on an Ambulance chassis including the price of the cab and chassis tends to be about half of it's regular pickup style cab and chassis counterparts. There is a surplus of these Van Style rigs sitting around with hundreds of thousands of miles left on them.
This is where we come in. We can sell you the cab back kit or do the complete conversion for you. We also are developing a bed especially for our conversion that will look like it was factory built for the Van Style cab and chassis. As you will see in our News page, our roll out for this will be in the fourth quarter of the year and we expect it to be a hot seller.
Contact us today and see what we can do to set you up with a rig that will handle all of your needs at a fraction of the cost of a standard cab and chassis.
