Cargo vans are practical vehicles for those who wish to carry supplies from point A to point B. As these vans are covered and protect cargo from the elements, they provide more cover than pick-up trucks which typically expose cargo to rain, wind and dust.

If you're interested in placing a bench-type seat in your cargo van, you'll find that the procedure is relatively straightforward as you won't need to modify the carpeting at all. It is also possible to remove your new bench seating if and when your needs change. Following is a practical quick-guide to assist you with the process.

Step 1
-----------------

Ensure that your vehicle is on a flat and stable surface and move the bench seating into your van via the preferred side door.

Step 2
-----------------

Put the seating unit in the desired spot. This will be a personal choice. In order to ensure that you bolt the unit in properly, make marks on the base of the seating unit using a permanent marker. After making these markings, you'll be able to see where the bolts need to be secured. You will require four bolts (one for every corner).

Step 3
-----------------

Remove the seating unit and use a drill power tool to make holes at each corner, using your markings as convenient guidelines. In order to get stellar results, utilize a drill bit which is one size smaller than the actual bolts.

Step 4
-----------------

Replace the seating unit in the desired location. Your new holes should line up with the holes in the floorboards at this stage.

Step 5
-----------------

You will need to put washers on each bolt. These components are designed to stop bolts from descending into floorboards via regular wear and tear, as washers lock bolts into place.

Step 6
-----------------

Use socket wrenches to ensure that each bolt is securely fixed to the vehicle's floor. Look underneath your van to inspect whether each bolt and washer is securely in place.

Step 7
-----------------

Manually turn all nuts to ensure that they are secured tightly.

Step 8
-----------------

Ask a friend or colleague to hold the tips of the bolts in place using a wrench. All bolts must be secured tightly to complete the process.
