Maintaining your Upfit for Years to Come

Vehicle Maintenance Tips for Your UpfitsAn upfit is an investment in your business. It helps you stay organized, safely store your tools and equipment, and present a professional image to your customers. Adrian Steel produces only the highest-quality Contractor Grade storage solutions that are built to last. However, there are a few easy ways you can ensure that your upfit will be in tip-top shape for years to come. Here are some quick vehicle maintenance tips to help you extend your upfit’s life:


Keep Your Van Interior Organized & Clean

Whether you’re a neat freak or a bit on the disorganized side, it’s important to keep your work van relatively clean. If you can’t see the floor of your work van, it is probably time for a good deep clean. When you have a messy work van, not only will it make your job tougher, but the mess could mask potential damage to your upfit. If you carry any chemicals in your vehicle, you will want to make sure that there aren’t any hidden spills that could be eroding your upfit. It’s also a good idea to regularly check for moisture damage, mold, and bugs.


How to Clean

Fortunately, Adrian Steel’s heavy-duty upfit products are easy to clean and maintain! Made mostly of steel and composite materials, Adrian Steel products are tough to stain and damage. However, through normal wear-and-tear, dirt and grime can begin to build up over time. To clean, first remove all tools and equipment from the vehicle. Vacuum up any loose dirt and dust in the cargo area. Next, using a sponge or rag and a mild detergent, wipe down the surface of all shelves, drawer interiors, and any areas that have built up any dirt or grime. If you’ve noticed any squeaky hinges or sticking drawers, take a minute to grease up areas in need.
