Planning is the key to success in any venture, and installing van shelving is no exception. Before diving into the nitty-gritty of the process, it’s crucial to take a step back and strategically plan the setup. As a tradesperson in Ireland, optimising your work van with efficient shelving systems can make a world of difference. In this guide, we at Vanfit Solutions Ltd will walk you through the essential van shelving tips, steps and considerations to ensure you make the most out of your van shelving system.

We Plan Your Van Shelving Needs Ahead of Time

Embarking on the transformation of your work van with shelving requires thoughtful consideration of your trade’s unique requirements. With two decades of expertise as Ireland’s premier van racking system and shelving provider, we understand that van shelving is far from a one-size-fits-all solution. Tailoring the setup to align precisely with your distinct needs is not just recommended; it’s crucial for a successful installation.

Rest assured, you’re not alone in this journey. At Vanfit Solutions, we stand ready to be your trusted guide, offering insights and assistance to ensure the meticulous planning of your van shelving system.

We Assess Your Trade Requirements

We will begin by conducting a thorough assessment of your trade requirements. What tools and equipment are essential for your daily tasks? Are there specialised items that require careful storage?

For instance, if you are a plumber, you may need space for pipes, wrenches, and various fittings. On the other hand, an electrician might require compartments for delicate electronic equipment. By understanding your needs, we create a van shelving system that improves your workflow instead of slowing it down.

Examples of Common Tools and Equipment

To give you a head start, let’s explore some common tools and equipment that tradespeople often need to store in their vans:

  1. Hand Tools: Spanners, screwdrivers, pliers, and other hand tools that are crucial for day-to-day tasks.
  2. Power Tools: Depending on your trade, power tools such as drills, saws, or welding equipment may be a staple in your arsenal.
  3. Specialised Equipment: Consider any trade-specific equipment that requires secure and organised storage. For example, a carpenter may need space for different types of saws, levels, and measuring tools.
  4. Consumables and Supplies: Factor in space for consumables like nails, screws, or wiring, as well as general supplies such as safety gear and cleaning materials.

We Tailor Your Van Shelving to Your Workflow

Once we’ve compiled a list of your trade essentials, we think about how you work on a daily basis. Do you prefer quick and easy access to certain tools during specific tasks? Should certain items be stored together for efficiency? Tailoring your shelving to the flow of your work ensures that everything is within arm’s reach, reducing downtime and frustration on the job.

At Vanfit Solutions, we provide customised CAD designs tailored for each customer, ensuring your shelving system aligns seamlessly with your workflow.

We Optimise for Accessibility

We consider the frequency of use for each tool or piece of equipment. Items that are used more frequently should be easily accessible, while those used less often can be stored in less accessible areas. This optimisation not only streamlines your workflow but also minimises the time spent searching for tools in the van. At Vanfit we have a number of options available to suit your needs whether it’s a ready-to-go van shelving kit or a bespoke design we are here to help.

By meticulously planning your van shelving needs ahead of time, we set the foundation for a system that not only meets the basic requirements of your trade but also enhances your overall efficiency. Remember, the goal is not just storage; it’s about creating an organised and accessible workspace on wheels tailored to the demands of your specific trade in Ireland.

We Draw a Plan on How to Use Your Cargo Area

Sketching or visualising the organisation of your cargo space may seem like an additional step, but it’s a crucial one for maximising the utility of Vanfit products. A well-thought-out plan ensures that everything has a designated place, promoting efficiency and minimising frustration on the job. At Vanfit, creating a plan for your cargo area has never been easier.

Our offering includes customised CAD designs tailored to your specific needs. These personalised designs provide a detailed visual representation of your van shelving setup, ensuring a precise and efficient implementation. Vanfit is dedicated to transforming your vision of an organised and accessible workspace into a reality, making your work environment as efficient and effective as possible.
