Furniture removal is a heavy and complicated business, not only for the people involved but for the van that provides the essential transport.
Heavy, because weighty and bulky items of furniture have to carried around and complex because whenever furniture is involved, especially wardrobes and kitchen units, things have to be disassembled first and then re-assembled at destination. To carry out removals safely and professionally, you have to:
Carry with you all the tools you need to disassemble and re-assemble furniture and, ideally, a small supply of furniture parts and accessories to replace any damaged or lost in transit;
Protect your van’s interior against the inevitable wear and tear caused by loading, unloading and dragging around heavy objects.
Protection was the first step in the conversion of this van too. If you work in furniture removals, you need to protect your van’s floor against damage as quickly as possible, or your valuable asset can turn into a rusty wreck in next to no time. All furniture, furnishings, and objects of décor have to be dragged along your van’s floor during moving from the old to the new property.
The owners of this Proace City chose a plywood floor liner
with a marble-look surface and steel edging for added protection at exposed and stressed edges.
Anybody moving furniture obviously needs as much free floor space as possible: the more room there is, the fewer journeys have to be made between the two properties. And having with you all the tools and equipment you need is equally important to avoid wasting time and to do the job properly. In the Proace City illustrated on this page, the Syncro team adopted the ideal compromise, installing racking along only one side of the van and leaving the opposite side wall and the bulkhead completely free.
The racking solution seen here consists of:
1. A shuttle-type case transport compartment at floor level. This kit allows the van’s operators to secure a large number of cases, even of very different size. Power drills, electric screwdrivers, battery sets and component cases can all be carried here.
2. Three simple shelves with non-slip mats and internal space dividers. Easy to access, tough and capacious, these shelves are ideal for carrying consumables like masking tape, insulating tape, dust covers, blankets, cardboard boxes and packing materials of all sorts.
3. A bar rack at the rear of the racking.
Thanks to holes that are equally spaced in both dimensions, Ultra System side panels let you add other accessories at any time and position them exactly where you want.
As for all vans, Syncro System makes tailor-made roof racks for the Proace City
too. One or two ladder slides can also be fitted. The front cross-bar of all Syncro roof racks is equipped with the exclusive Ultrasilent profile that minimises turbulence on the roof and ensures maximum driver comfort on the road.
