Untitled

If your van is your office then it would make sense that you have it arranged in a tidy and organised fashion just as you would your desk. This is especially important for companies such as hprservicesltd.com/gloucester-boilers who offer Boiler Installation Gloucester way. For professionals such as these, time is money and so having all of your equipment and tools arranged, easily to hand is a must.  When your van also represents your business and brand it’s even more important that it appears well organised and professional to clients who might see it.

One way to arrange your van and also maximise the space is by adding van racking and there are a number of benefits to doing so.

Saves time

It’s much quicker to be able to find the parts and tools that you need for a particular job if they’re arranged in a logical fashion on a shelving system. It’s also quicker to put everything away at the end of the day too.

Protects your assets

The tools and materials for your trade can be a very expensive investment so it’s worth looking after them and storing them on shelving rather than having them rolling around on the floor of your van which can help to make sure they don’t get damaged. Some shelving units also allow for the addition of lockable boxes to secure your most valuable possessions. This is particularly handy if you need to stay away on a job and tools have to be left in the van overnight.

According to the Sunday Times, the rise in thefts of and from vans continues to rise so you really do need to ensure your tools are safe.

Saves money

Although there will be an initial outlay to cover the cost of shelving you should find that it pays for itself in the longer term. Not only will you save time in finding tools and parts but being able to keep track of them more accurately should reduce the need to reorder unnecessary items.

First impressions do count

Whether we like it or not, it’s a fact. Clients can easily be put off a tradesperson if the inside of their van looks like a student squat. If you’re up against other businesses it could be the difference between being successful in pitching for the job and not.

Finally, an organised van simply takes the hassle out of your day.
