Before You Buy a Cargo Van Ladder Rack

Adrian Steel Cargo Van Ladder Rack

If you’re in the market for a ladder rack for your cargo van, there are likely some important considerations that need to be made before you make a purchase. To help you along the researching process, we’ve put together some important things to think about before you buy a cargo van ladder rack.

  • Ladder Type – What type of ladder do you carry on the job? If you carry a wood ladder, it will likely be much heavier than an aluminum ladder. The weight of your ladder will help to determine whether or not you need an ergonomically-designed cargo van ladder rack. Additionally, a tall ladder will require a different sized ladder rack than a short one.
  • Van Roof Height – If you drive a high roof cargo van, you’re going to have quite a hard time reaching the ladder on the roof without assistance. Take into account the roof height of your vehicle to help you decide which type of ladder rack is best.
  • Ladder Use – Some professionals use their ladder on a daily basis while others really use it only on occasion. If you’re constantly loading and unloading your ladder from your van, you may want to think about getting a more ergonomically-designed ladder rack that makes the process as quick and easy as possible.
  • Safety – Safety should be a number one priority to think about when researching a cargo van ladder rack. Whether you’re purchasing a ladder rack for yourself or your employees, you should be sure that it has undergone thorough testing for safety. The last thing you want is to deal with a lawsuit, or even worse, a serious injury.
  • Cost – To help determine your budget, think about what’s most important to you in a ladder rack. If you want an ergonomically designed ladder rack that is built with long lasting, high quality materials, it will likely cost you more upfront. But, in the end, a better quality ladder rack may save you money from fixing and replacing it down the road. Decide what your priorities are and make your decision from there.
