Random question I know.

But would this file cabinet likely be able to be transported in a cargo van?

Amazon.com: Standard Lateral Four Drawer File Cabinet Pull Type: Radiused Front Recessed Pull, Width: 42', Finish: Steelcase - Black: Office Products

I think it would. Trying to convince my friend that it would so that I can use his van instead of renting a truck.

I think mine would fit. All it takes is a tape measure to be sure. Cargo van can be most anything.

It looks like it should fit in the cargo van, but measuring would be the safe way to go. Also, if you can't stand it upright you can always lay it flat in the van. Take anything breakable out and make sure to keep the drawers shut with tape.

The item is 52 inches high, should fit in most cargo vans, just measure first.

Biggest problem for an average person is lifting it up to place it inside or removing it at the other end. If it's a rental truck in which you can stand up inside of, and there's a ramp, you may want to leave it full of its contents and use some dollies to roll it in and out, just be sure to secure it well with straps to one wall of the truck, and place the drawers against the truck wall so they can't come open.
