Our Truck’s Safety

The Transportation Research Center (TRC) tested the 2001 Hi-V-Co Catering step van on December 2000.

The hard work and long hours in designing the food truck body By Mr. Karapetian paid off when: The TRC gave the truck an outstanding score at an impact speed of 30.5 mph (49.1 kph). The highest in the step van industry. The TRC Recorded the driver with a HIC of 655 and the passenger with a HIC of 456 well below the maximum allowed of 1,000 HIC by NHTSA.
