What do commercial vehicle body builders do?

If you’re searching for a new commercial vehicle for your fleet, particularly a bespoke vehicle, you’ve probably come across the term commercial vehicle body builders more than once. But what do commercial vehicle bodybuilders do?

Commercial vehicle body builders

Although it may sound like an obscure and niche area, commercial vehicle body builders are an integral part of the process for producing vehicles specifically for commercial use - the experienced hands that build commercial vehicles.

A specialist field requiring lots of skill and patience, often commercial vehicle body builders are not only trained to build new commercial vehicles from scratch, but are also experienced in converting vehicles and repairing used commercial vehicles, too.

Tools & workshops of commercial vehicle body builders

Body builders are often skilled in fabricating and welding; building metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling pieces together.

They also use specific tools to help them go about their work - various air tools such as drills and grinders.

Often, commercial vehicle body building workshops are large warehouse-like spaces that not only house the machinery and tools necessary to do the work, but also the vehicles being worked on - where more than one vehicle will be repaired or built at any one time.
