Converting Sprinter Van Into a Mobile Office, Part 2Christopher Wibbe
In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the benefits that can be found from converting a sprinter van into a mobile office space. There are several possible good reasons to consider this for your business, from convenience and removal of certain travel expenses to the impression it can have on clients, employees and more.
At Warner Vans of Utah, we can help you choose the perfect new sprinter van if you’re looking for a great baseline for a mobile office conversion. In today’s blog, we’ll go over a few of the themes you might consider when it comes to a mobile office that’s tailored to actual workspaces and productivity (we covered the office theme designed for a CEO or executive in part one, as well).
Workstation Conversion Themes
There are several specific elements you’ll want to consider when it comes to practical parts of the mobile office. The goal is to make the space as efficient and close to a normal office as possible. Some factors to consider:
- Desk format: You have several desk options available to you depending on the space you set aside for them. You might consider desks attached to walls, retractable desks to save space, or potentially pod-shaped desks meant for individual seats.
- Cabinets and Storage: Whether overhead, on or inside the floors or even built into backs of seats, ensure you have proper storage present.
- Outlets and power: Make sure you allow for proper charging within the mobile office, including both USB and AC outlets in prominent areas.
- Communication: If applicable, consider a phone/intercom system.
- Monitors: In today’s day and age, it’s good to have compact computing options, whether laptops or just monitors from a separate desktop source.
Layout and Organization
Another big factor to consider is how you’ll lay out the entire space for the office. Much of this depends on the precise sprinter model you choose and the square footage you have available – some mobile offices are mostly just functional and contain one driving section plus workstations, while others may have room for a rear sofa or other comfort elements as well. If you’re designing your mobile office to serve as a part-time shuttle for clients or employees as well, particularly over longer distances, you might consider a bathroom unit in the back as well.
Mobile Office as an Asset
When you take everything we’ve discussed in this series together, you see how a mobile office conversion from a sprinter can be a major asset to your business. Whether it’s a way of keeping employees productive during travel, impressing clientele, or even reaching out to new potential clients, consider the multiple ways your mobile office might make an impact and add value.
