Newbie Starting a Business
I'm new to the world of trucks and have been to 3 Ford dealerships and can't get any straight answers or pricing. Strange. I'm trying to start a mobile business and am being given conflicting info re E450 and F550. I can't make heads or tails out of it anymore and need help with some questions. I've tried googling my questions (as I've always thought this was easy) but I'm just not getting the answers I need. Anyone out there with a noodle for knowledge about these two Ford products?
For starters, I need a 17 ft aerocell cube van. I need a diesel and am hauling max 3000lbs. How much does this cube van weigh without any load, that would be chassis and cube? (Aerocell is a fibreglass cube). Is 3000lb too much for an E450? I'm guessing I will need a CVOR for this as it is a vehicle providing a service, so it's a mobile "office". If I get an F550 with a commercial designation will I need to increase my licence from a G to something else? This is just for starters, the questions I have.
