How Trade Van Accessories Can Bolster Your Business
They Protect Your Van
Your van is probably your most expensive – and, arguably, your most important – piece of equipment. So, it just makes sense to protect it, even from your other supplies and equipment.
Take, for example, a ladder rack. Not only does it help get your ladder to and from the jobsite, it protects your van from the dents and scratches it could cause in transit if it weren’t properly secured. Then think about partitions and shelving. Partitions and shelving keep your cargo in place, eliminating the damage that loose equipment could cause on the interior of your van’s cargo area. And we’re not just talking about large pieces of equipment. Screws, nails, and other small supplies can easily scratch and scrape your van’s interior coating if they’re dragged under your feet or equipment. But upfit accessories can keep your tools and supplies – large and small – in place and out of harm’s way.
They Protect Your Equipment
Your tools and supplies, like your van, are an investment. And like your van, they deserve a little protection on your journey to and from the job. Upfit accessories not only organize your tools and supplies, they also protect them from damage on the road by holding them in place. Lockable shelf cabinets and window screens add another level of protection – protection from theft.
They Keep You Prepared
Do you have all the parts you need for the job? Are you sure? Stop second guessing. Trade van accessories like bins, parts cases, and trays make it easy for you to quickly check your inventory. You’ll always have the right parts on hand and you’ll know in advance when it’s time to replenish your supplies.
They’ll Enhance Your Professional Image
