Vehicle Bodies

Shade Equipment Company, Inc. is a full-service distributor of commercial truck & van bodies for more than 50 manufacturers of truck bodies, truck equipment, van interiors, and truck and van accessories, offering sales, installation, paint, parts & service.


Among our most popular manufacturers is Knapheide, a commercial body manufacturer of steel service bodies, flatbeds, hoists, gooseneck bodies, van bodies, heavy haulers, and grain bodies. We have received Knapheide’s prestigious 1848 Award for more than 20 years as a leader among their distributors.


For heavy duty truck bodies, we also represent rugged SH Truck Bodies–super duty platforms, landscape bodies, and super duty dump bodies.  We offer a variety of service bodies for almost every vocational need: service & repair, utility, utility van, municipal, mechanical, line, and crane bodies. Service bodies come with a variety of models, storage plans, door configurations, and heights to customize the body for particular needs, such as hi-roof bodies, barn door access, lo-sliding roof bodies, open bed service bodies with built-in tool boxes or side boxes with lids, utility van bodies, and low-roof bodies.  To customize, add a ladder rack or a liftgate!


Flatbeds may be configured into flatbed dump bodies with hoists and cab shields. Gooseneck bodies have built-in gooseneck hitches. Heavy haulers serve the logging industry, landscape bodies for the lawn care professional, and grain bodies with stakes and sides for farmers and other agricultural businesses.


Commercial vans and/or van bodies may be customized with lift gates, material handling racks, ladder racks, shelving, drawers, and bins to keep everything inside organized for your on-site convenience.


We, also, install small to mid-size dump bodies and hoists, as well as pickup dump inserts for residential and commercial use.
