Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


this is my new setup, I used to work out of an '88 shorty chevy shorty cargo van. I do general repairs for a residential new home builder. I like this setup, having everything close at hand. Alot better then a tool box on the bed if you ask me

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


Nice setup Al. The only thing that keeps me from going the truck route is rain, sleet and snow. I don't want to have to stand in any of those searching for something. At least in a van, box truck or trailer you can get in out of the elements and search comfortably.

But a truck will soon be in my future. I need one to haul the trailer when I get it.

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


Gave me truck a wash before going to price a job. Customer was more impressed by my truck than my previous work pics lol he said I should go into detailing as well but looks like the effort I put into the truck got me the job as he was impressed that I put that much effort into cleaning me vehicle so I must put more into my work.
