To fitout a commercial vehicle has a wide range of prices. As a guide, it all depends on the vehicle make you are purchasing, and the extent of fitouts required. Are you looking for basic fitouts or is it specialised?

A commercial vehicle is a trade tool and gives a return on investment. The investment into a fitout can range from $8000.00NZD to $150,000.00NZD depending on the complexity of the products and technology going into the vehicle.

The total cost of ownership over the asset lifetime

We care about your costs and we understand how important it is for you to forecast and keep these under control. More than ever, we recognize that vehicle running costs can be a major factor to your bottom line. At Auto Transform, you can expect two-vehicle cycles (4 Years) from the equipment with a quality fit-out and investment into the right gear. This brings the total cost of ownership over the asset’s lifetime to extreme value.

With different vehicle models and a wide range of wheelbase and GVM options, the fit-out’s overall weight (GVM) can make or break the running cost and your carbon sustainability contribution. It is essential to consider the vehicle’s capacity and not overload it. This requires more energy and consumables to get the needed distance.
