For all intents and purposes a contractor’s truck is a mobile shop.  The contractor loads up the back of the truck with any and all gear necessary to function away from home, so it follows that you need a bunch of stuff back there in order not to get caught out.  And it’s not always pretty.

This image from reader chiefdm5 is a perfect example. We’re often guilty ourselves of piling stuff up to the point of bursting, so to us this looks like a very orderly execution of the throw-it-in-the-truck method.

    A few large boxes on wheels means less trips back and forth to the truck…

    looks like he hasn’t driven any were yet, things tend to “self level” in the backs of trucks while your driving. Especially boxes of nails that are placed on top of things like the one pictured there. I have given up on trucks and gone with a van and milk crate system.

    That’s pretty tidy compared to my van at the moment… I’d spend a lovely afternoon tidying things up, but it’s too bloody cold!

    We set up out E350’s and larger Step Vans so that everything has a place and is in it. We compartmentalize our Knaack boxes the same way – so that we know where things are and if soemthing is missing. This makes for productive work, reduced costs, better customer relations and bigger profits.
