HVAC Van – How to Upfit Service Van for HVAC Projects
If you want to make job go faster and leave a good impression to customers, there’s one “thing” that you need to pay attention to, the HVAC van. When it comes down to HVAC van equipment, you generally need to have access to as much of cargo space as possible and place to store HVAC tools and gear. Occasionally dragging larger repair appliances and items such as water heaters, and AC units means that you need parts storage options that are easily accessible yet leave space for some large items. A well-organized HVAC van means increased productivity. You’ll be able to complete each job in a shorter period because you’ll know where every specific tool you need is located. With each job taking less time, you’ll be able to increase the numbers of jobs you do in a day, which means bigger income. Proper work van organization “kills” wasted time, since lost time costs you money. Also, your work is made easier by the availability of HVAC van shelving and rack units that you can install, so everything has a place.
HVAC Van OrganizationWhen you take time to organize work van adequately, it becomes a tremendous benefit for your business. It’s true whether you’re newbie, contractor, or veteran in the industry. Use a few simple methods, and you'll get a perfectly organized service van:
Layout MapUse a piece of paper and draw an outline of the van’s interior. You’ll use this map to help organize what you put inside.
Driver CabinUse the cab to store things like a laptop, iPad, invoices, pricing guide, and other documentation that you need daily. Knowing where all documentation is stored makes it easy to find and use. It’s a much better system than digging through papers on the van’s flor to find the right document.
Inner AreaMess leaves almost no room to move around inside the van. Nobody knows where anything is, and it's troublesome to get inside to either search for needed parts or pull them from the vehicle. Organizing with shelving units and racks eliminates this type of "challenge." Shelves provide places to keep parts, and racks can be used to store things like ladders. It’ll also make room where you can store larger pieces of HVAC equipment.
