Providing technical assistance at home, on site, or at customers’ works is far easier and more efficient if you have a properly equipped van!
On this page we can see a Volkswagen Crafter fitted with Syncro System’s new Ultra racking for a customer who services and repairs sheet metal cutting machines. These large and heavy machines need regular servicing, a well-equipped workshop and skilled service engineers to keep them running efficiently.
Given the specialist nature of the machines involved, bulky parts have to be transported back to the workshop for repair or replacement and a large quantity of small spares has to be kept on board for minor repairs that can be completed on site. The customer therefore presented Syncro System with the following requests:
Each of the customer’s requests was answered by a specific type of racking.
This VW Crafter owned by a machinery service company is certainly not short on storage compartments. In addition to the drawers and shelves, even the spaces around the wheel arches have been turned into effective storage for cargo and equipment by enclosing them with part-height, fold-down doors. Near the bulkhead, a case storage compartment has been provided, complete with retaining straps to carry tool cases of all makes and sizes.
The need to carry bulky cargo on the floor is generally complemented by the need to ensure safety on the road. Cargo must be prevented from sliding around when the van is moving or it can easily become a hazard to the driver and other road users. On top of that, moving cargo can easily cause damage to itself, the racking and the van’s bodywork. With this in mind Syncro has done two things:
A table always comes in handy when you have to provide technical assistance on the move. To avoid taking up valuable floor space, the Syncro team fitted this Crafter with a compact, fold-away table on the bulkhead. This leaves the entire floor free for cargo. Above the table is a paper roll holder, an extremely popular accessory among technicians who work away from base for its great practicality and versatility.
