2-why-invest-in-shelving-for-your-mercedes-sprinter-van.jpg

Shelving packages from Advantage Outfitters LLC are an ideal way to ensure that you can safely transport all the equipment, parts and other supplies you need to the worksite. Some of the advantages that you will gain by investing in shelving for your Mercedes Sprinter van include:

1. Organization

There are few things as frustrating as needing to find the right tool in a hurry and not being able to find it because the back of your van is a mess. You can avoid that mess by using shelving to store and organize your tools and materials.

Shelving for your Mercedes Sprinter van means that you can find your equipment faster which allows you to complete jobs quickly and efficiently.

2. Protect Your Equipment

Regardless of the industry you work in, your tools are one of your most valuable possessions. Whether you run your own business and have a single van or you are the operator of a fleet of vans, protecting your tools and equipment means you’ll save money on replacing broken tools and lost inventory.

3. Protect Your Van

The day may come when you want to sell your current Mercedes Sprinter van and purchase a new one. It will be much harder to sell your older van if it’s covered with dents and scratches which are the result of loose tools and equipment tumbling around the cargo area. A prospective buyer for your older van will be much more likely to complete the purchase if the back of your van looks like it did the day you bought it. The best way to ensure this outcome is to purchase shelving for your Mercedes Sprinter van.

4. Professionalism

Let’s face it, a well-organized van looks much more professional than a van that looks like a teenager’s bedroom. When you drive up to a new customer’s residence or business, you want their first impression of you to be one of professionalism, not sloppiness. Shelving allows you to create a professional-looking cargo space in your van where everything is in its place and there is a place for everything.

5. Increased Productivity and Revenue

When you or your technicians know exactly where to look for a tool or piece of equipment, you’ll get the job done more efficiently and faster.

The faster the job gets done, the more jobs you can do in a day. Completing more jobs in a day means increased revenue and happier customers.

Tradespeople who work in the plumbing or HVAC industries are required to carry a lot of important tools and equipment. It can be enormously frustrating and annoying when they realize that they didn’t have the one part needed to fix a customer’s problem and that they are going to have to return to their main location to find it.

4. Delivery Van Shelving Package

For vans involved in making deliveries, our Sprinter Delivery Package of shelving equipment is ideal. The sturdy shelves fold securely away to keep the aisle clear when they are not in use, or to make space for larger items. With plenty of room and capacity for heavier items, our Sprinter shelving for delivery vans is ideal for all types of business.

Our delivery van shelving packages are available in aluminum for 144-inch wheelbase delivery vans. The folding shelves allow clear access when not in use. The shelves are held up with gas shock so there are no latches and no rattling noises. The capacity is 40 pounds per linear foot on the shelves and they are 20 inches deep. Each side of the delivery van shelving package option includes a two-shelf shelving unit with folding shelves.

The 170-inch wheelbase aluminum shelving unit is similar to the shorter wheelbase version but with longer folding shelves.

Shelving Material Options: Steel Versus Aluminum

One of the more important decisions that you can make when choosing a shelving package is whether you want shelving in aluminum or in steel. There are benefits and drawbacks to both.

Steel shelving is more durable. It’s a great choice when you know you’re going to be traveling rougher roads such as in rural areas or in urban areas where you know the roads are not in excellent condition. Steel shelving lasts a long time and can carry much heavier loads. Steel is also a great option if you’re looking for organization at an attractive price.

The main drawback to steel shelving is that it increases gas costs because it does make the van heavier to drive.

Aluminum shelving is ideal if your van or your fleet of vans do most of their work in an urban setting with relatively good roads. Aluminum shelving gives you a quieter ride and helps to save on gas. Aluminum shelving may not be your best option if most of your work is done in more rural areas where the roads aren’t as good.

How to Install Shelving in the Sprinter Van
