November 2018:     Be Prepared for Winter

As we edge that little bit closer to winter, it’s time to start thinking about protecting your vehicle against frost and the cold weather, ensuring your electrics, water and gas are safe and sound. Frost can cause damage to water heaters, tanks, pipes, valves, taps and toilet systems, and much, if not all, won’t be covered by any warranties and insurances. To avoid the potential problems, delays and high repair costs when you come to start your vehicle in the spring, book in now for your Winter Health Check!

October 2018:     Why Getting It Right First Time Could Save Your Life!

Since opening the doors last year to our bespoke van conversion business off City Road in Sheffield, we have been inundated with customers needing their vans and motor-homes rectified as a result of previous bad workmanship and basic lack of knowledge.

Seemingly so common in the industry, which has also seen several people sent to jail in the last two years, conversion companies across the UK are still claiming to be specialists in the industry.  Like us, there are many companies who are doing the work right and our intention isn’t to discredit the industry or the quality conversion companies out there, but all too often we find customer vans with corners cut, incorrect equipment fitted and interiors which are just not up to scratch, inaccessible switches, holes and frames exposed and gas pipes without any secure fixing or insulation.

Here at Van Trix we provide a full range of services for customers requiring custom builds for touring, work vans or to transport bikes, fishing tackle and other sports equipment. We do bespoke interiors, electrical installations, woodwork, solar panels, upgrades, repairs, replacing parts, fault finding and much more.

We always put our customer’s needs and safety first and treat every van as if it was our own. There is no way we would knowingly return a van to a customer without being 100% satisfied that we had done our very best and everything had been tested. And that’s why we are fast becoming the best rated van conversion company in the area.


“VANTRIX carried out all the electrical work, diesel heater and fitted a skylight in my VW Crafter. Being a joiner and cabinet maker I did all the woodwork myself. This was absolutely no problem for these guys… they worked with me and my plans to customise an electrical layout to fit within my build. They are incredibly patient and understanding to your own detailed plans. The work they have done is top notch and very competitively priced. If you are struggling with any element of your camper build they will work with you, and they have a lifetime of experience and ideas.
The equipment fitted is excellent and I’m already enjoying warm and bright cost nights away in my van!  They are really nice guys and you can guarantee the kettle is always on! Bravo VANTRIX!!”

“Matt has provided an excellent service from start to finish of the fit out, providing great advice on the electrical equipment and providing an in depth explanation on pro’s and con’s of the equipment installed. The quality of the finished fit out definitely exceeded our expectations and would happily recommend Van-Trix services. Thank you again for a great job with the van.”
