Single cab - Tipper conversion cost?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

 

Trying to price up the cost of converting a Isuzu Dmax single cab into a tipper with chip box. 

Anyone got a rough idea on cost of this ? Basic chip box with ladder rack and uprated suspension. 

 

Live in North Yorkshire so someone nearby would be fantastic if anyone knows of a converter ?

This cost me 4080 all in for the conversion and it will be roughly 1k to have it uprated. Most quotes I got were 6-6.5k +vat just for the conversion so I feel I got it cheap but I have had to make a repair so it's all relative, I do feel 6+vat is asking a little much though but if you can get it converted for 5-6k all in then another 1k for the uprate you'll be about right 20180914_120949.jpeg

thats a decent sized box - what is the cubic metre capacity for chip?

4 cube for chip and 1 cube for the tool locker so minus the tool locker you could have 5 cube. A simple custom tarp keeps everything tidy while chipping

I had quotes for 3 to 4k for my double cab. No springs just the tipper conversion. Some horror stories about chassis snapping when converted to tippers, might be worth checking which vehicles that is
