Stared a new job about two months ago. What do you think about the way I set up the van, I’m sure you’ve never seen someone block the side cargo door with an additional shelf!

Check out my van, shelves on both sides. Yes I have an ultra rare 8 door AWD van!

My oh my that's a big truck. Tell me how you go in and out to get stuff with the deck that high?

For example today I had to grab stuff from the van at least 10 times. I only had to open side of back doors to get things. Do you raise and lower that ramp 10 times a day and open the huge door each time?

By the was I didn't really pass on the staircat, the guy didn't want to sell it to me!! I even offered full price and he ignored me. Grrrrr.

I normally just put the gate half way up and just work it like tall stairs.... its no ta problem.... The box trucks are 10,000% more efficient than a van or pick up truck--- they are big but they make life easy...

I had a 1980 with chrome rims, a 20 gal LP tank under the right skirt, and a
4500 watt gas Generator under the left skirt that powered fluorescent lights
and Electric outlets above the both work benches, left and right in front of the shelving, Security Fencing behind seats with pass through gate,
I could run my Spartan 1065 with 125' cable off Gen, without losing the lights

Pretty stoaked that there’s a plumbing form with legitimate plumbers and not just folks talking the doo.
Who else is proud of their setup?!

Lol why not?
It doesn't fit the stereotype of a plumber in most people's minds. I've seen/heard it happen. We get a new van or two once a year, gets kitted out nice. While it's still clean and organized there are always comments from customers if they see inside.

Similar to how some customers react when they get a young plumber instead of an old one.

I can see that with the “young plumber”

Every once in a while I get a new toolbag and some people will ask me how many years I've been with the company. Then I get to remind them I was at their house X months ago, and X years ago, and at their last house!

You can watch the embarrassment flash across their face, followed by a brain fart, then the gears slowly turning, and if they're lucky, the right file is found in that set of cabinets.

I agree keep those doors closed, people will think you are overcharging them. A lot of people think we are as low as garbage pickers.
Have I shown you my boat?

Flat rate guys; "This is the price you'll pay and not a penny more!".
