How to insulate from road noise

Any long distance drive in a noisy car can be a particularly unpleasant experience.

Of course, some kind of noise in any car is expected but there are some things you can do that will significantly reduce the amount of noise passengers will hear when riding in the car.

If you upgrade and improve your vehicle straight away, it is possible to create an environment that is better insulated from the road outside your windows. The key to solving this is to understand where the sound is coming from and to focus on sealing and insulating those areas.

Getting a van conversion

Van conversions are perfect for making your vehicle incredibly unique and individual.

Technology’s development has seen an increase in van conversions as they become more popular because of how easily they can be attained and at a reduced cost.

Having a conversion done to an old van provides you with the flexibility of the overall design of the van to make it fit for the desired use. VanFormers employ skilled workers who are capable of tackling different tasks – we will implement a plan for the conversion prior to beginning any work which will save time.

Van conversions can be executed at a fairly low price varying on the simplicity of the conversion and how much a client wants to modify their vehicle.

Kombi Conversions

Van Formers offer Kombi conversions! Kombi vans are the perfect vehicle choice for multipurpose use.

Kombi conversions aren’t just for work purposes, they can be used for camping and pleasure also. The name originates from the German word Kombinationskraftwagen, translating as combination vehicle.

As the vehicle possesses seats that are quick release, we can remove them and re-fit them in a very short amount of time.

Van Formers have the skills to change a panel van into a Kombi van through utilising genuine or aftermarket parts, fitting the strengthening plates to the underside and seat belt attachments points. In this conversion, there are three available seating options to choose from:

– Twin seat
– Twin+1 seat
– Triple seat

All of our installations are photographed and a covering letter si provided to show the process that has been carried out explaining that your van is safe to use, for the purpose of insurance.

Campervan conversion budget

When considering a van conversion, an important factor will be the cost.

It is possible you might be building your own campervan, rather than purchasing one to save your money.

Although, if you do opt for a bespoke conversion by Van Formers, the initial thing to do would be working out a budget and section the costs between each part of the process.
The cost is a factor entirely dependent on the buyer with how much they are willing to spend. You set the budget and build the vehicle around that budget.

If things are broken down with costs, you may want to consider these:

Vehicle – The first and foremost factor will be the cost of the vehicle if you do not already have one. Set a budget; bear in mind the more that is spent means a better vehicle and less spent on maintenance. On average, £500 will buy a basic van, £3,000 will buy a great used van and £10,000 will buy a new van.

Fittings – Next will be how you are going to fit-out your vehicle. Depending on whether you’d like a lot or a little, this will be the next factor in your budget to consider. A basic, seat bed and cupboard won’t cost much, however if you like much more, including a kitchen sink, this could cost up to £5,000.

Legal – If you are changing your vehicle from a van to a campervan, there are road authorities that you may want to inspect prior to re-categorising, which could be costly. It is advised to insure your vehicle also.
