Are you a locksmith business owner who can’t find rekeying mats in the mess in the back of his van? Spending more time looking for pin kits than bidding on jobs? If so, it’s time to organize your work van.
Organization is something that you may not think about often. After all, you have a lot to do, and being organized isn’t your top concern. But maybe it should be.
Why You Need to Get Organized
#1: The Right Impression
Ask yourself this: If your customers opened the back of your work van, what would they find? Would they find an organized work station or a disaster? If they saw your van cargo area, would they think you ran a professional, competent business? Or would they see an unorganized, messy van, and assume you were an amateur?
#2: Flawless Efficiency
Another point to consider: How efficient are you? Can you find a specific tool in a short amount of time? Do all tools and equipment have a designated place in your van? If you need something for an emergency, can you respond in time? Estimate the amount of time it takes you to fully prepare for a job, and then ask yourself again, “How efficient am I?”
#3: Save Money
Still not convinced it’s smart to be organized? What if being organized saved you money? It can. Have you ever lost an expensive part or tool, only to find it — after it’s been replaced? Have you ever turned down a job because you couldn’t find the item you needed and couldn’t afford a replacement? Do you lend tools to others, only to forget who was given what?
