Cargo Management

Van Cargo Area

How you configure your van cargo area can greatly impact your efficiency day to day.

Take time to analyse your essential tasks and equipment and give them priority in the space.

Carve a chunk of time from your schedule to clear your head and really focus on your work vehicle ......... could it be set up better ?

Grab your favourite beverage and a pad and pen / or tablet, a tape measure and draft up a plan of your van cargo area.....

1.Start with the floor, a timber floor creates a sturdy base to attach shelving etc, and protects the vehicle floor from wear and tear.

2. Consider a barrier to protect yourself and your passengers from air-bourne objects of fumes with either a rated mesh barrier or sealed partition.

. Draft a list of your most used equipment, and designate a storage space close to an opening for easy access.

4. Van shelving comes in many configurations to suit most trades. oxy storage containers and gas bottle holders are available as well as bays of shelves. Choose a lockable box for your most expensive gear, and handy multi compartment Ezi-Pak boxes for small fixings and consumables.

5. Remember to group similar items together, eg. tools & equipment in one area, consumables and inventory in another. Establish optimum stock and consumable quantities so that the space remains organised.

6. Lead hooks, internal ladder holders, and cable reel holders are available.

7 Above all, Label, Label, Label........ even a basic Black Marker if its your nearest option - mark every space according to your plan. Stuff is much easier to replace if the storage spot is clearly identifiable - no decisions at the end of a job!

8. Make a spot in your weekly schedule to check your van items are in their correct spots, and consumables & inventory are restocked.

Success!

(Remember the cleaning essentials and the first aid supplies!)
