    New Install truck

    We just purchased a new box truck for installations. Anyone willing to show pictures and give recommendations on what works and what doesn't and what shelving options you have? Thanks!!!

    box trucks

    This one is 10 years in service and should be put out to pasture but it is so handy and cheap.

    Some hard fast rules-
    1. No garbage allowed in back!
    2. All sheetmetal parts and flex fittings emptied dailey!
    3. If It doesn't have a lift gate dont waste your money!
    4. The busier you are the harder it is to keep organized and the more time you can waste looking for parts. I try to spend 5-15 minutes a day organizing and doing an inventory of parts.

    I know this is an old thread but I am about to buy a new 16' box and I'm wondering if any of you can share some do's and dont's about setting it up. My other rig is set up ok but I want to really do this one up nice. Any help would be appreciated. Truck will have 3x8 metal working table with drawers, 4' brake, Pittsburgh, 4' ladder, 6' ladder, 8' ladder, extension ladder etc. Pics of your rig would be great!
