Plumbers drive around town in a van full of important parts and supplies. Without the parts and supplies that a plumber must travel around town with, they wouldn’t be able to complete their work efficiently and that can lead to upset customers. Upset customer leads to less work and bad word of mouth. All of that can be avoided and prevented simply by being prepared. For a plumber, being prepared means being organized. That’s why plumbers have been using plastic storage bins inside of their vans for many years now.
As a plumber, you know important it is to make sure you always have the right parts and know where they are located. The last thing you want to do is show up to a job, pull out your over-crowded parts bag and realize you can’t find the proper fittings or pipes. That’s why a lot of plumbers have been using stacking bins inside of their vans. These bins are made with a lip on the back that allows them to hang from rails or racks inside the vans. Inside those bins will be all of your most critical parts.
Just imagine your van with hanging bins lining the back wall. The bins on the top row are red and they are holding all of your valves. The second row of bins is yellow and is holding all of your pipes. Underneath that, there’s a row of blue plastic bins that are holding all of your basic tools like wrenches and clamping tools. The possibilities are endless. When it comes to hanging bins and bins for plumbing vans, your best bet is the stackable storage bins. These bins come in a wide variety of sizes and colors.

Or you can use one half for large drains and the other half for your smaller drains. The possibilities are endless.
