Armored vehicles from The Armored Group (TAG) are ideal for numerous applications worldwide, including cash-in-transit. For many, armored vehicles are most familiar when in the form of cash-in-transit (CIT) trucks. These durable and highly protected vehicles are used for transporting money and other valuable goods, such as important documents and bullion, from one location to another.

For this sort of transportation situation, The Armored Group manufactures and sells superior armored CIT vehicles with plenty of options and features. Our CIT vehicles can help businesses, governments, and more transport valuables more securely anywhere in the world.  

What are Cash-in-Transit Vehicles?

Cash-in-transit trucks are among the most common forms of armored vehicles found throughout the world. Typically, these trucks can be seen outside banks, federal buildings, and businesses as they move money and other valuables from one secure place to another. As a result, CIT trucks can be a target for criminals looking to steal goods while they are on the move. Fortunately, most CIT trucks provide drivers, personnel, and valuables with several safety features, including bullet proof armoring and windows.   

Features of CIT Vehicles from The Armored Group

At The Armored Group, we manufacture and sell various high-quality armored vehicles, including cash-in-transit vehicles. Our durable CIT vehicles are designed primarily with security in mind; however, they also offer several other benefits, such as run-flat tires and upgraded suspension systems. 

When confronted, our cash-in-transit vehicles possess numerous safety features and advantages to help keep personnel and valuables safer. The armoring features on our CIT vehicles typically include:

  • Vertical panel protection
  • Certified bulletproof glass and armor
  • Blast protection
  • Roof protection
  • Door overlap protection
  • Upgraded suspension systems
  • Run-flat tires

The multiple safety and security features equipped to our CIT vehicles can help protect those inside from a potentially serious or deadly confrontation. These features can also help them evade more safely and securely with whatever valuables are inside. However, these are not the only features. Our armored cash-in-transit vehicles can be customized to include additional security features as well.

Categories of CIT Vehicles 

For armored cash-in-transit vehicles, TAG offers our customers around the world several options and categories. Our CIT vehicle categories are determined by their weight after armoring, available weight for payloads, and other similar categories concerning cubic volume and space for personnel. 

Our CIT categories include:

  • Light Duty: carries payloads up to 500 lbs. 
  • Medium Duty: ideal for payloads from 1,700 to 3,000 lbs.
  • Heavy Duty: ideal for payloads from 5,000 to 7,000 lbs.
  • Super Heavy Duty: ideal for payloads from 8,000 to 9,000 lbs.

The cash-in-transit vehicle any client needs is primarily dependent on what they plan on transporting. For larger, heavier payloads, our heavy duty and super heavy duty CIT vehicles are a more optimal choice. However, for smaller, lighter payloads, such as documents, our light or medium duty CIT vehicles are usually better suited for the task. For many businesses and organizations with changing needs and requirements for transporting goods, it is often wise to invest in armored CIT vehicles from all or multiple payload categories.
