Read on to find out why he integrated bott Smartvan van racking into his interior, and how it’s levelled up the way he works.


What made you decide to get bott Smartvan racking installed?

I’d seen it previously but just hadn’t hit the purchase button until it was recommended to me by someone in the same industry as myself. Once I saw the pictures of his van I had to do the same to mine.

What are the biggest changes you’ve noticed in your day-to-day since installing bott Smartvan racking?

Organisation is the biggest. I hate an untidy van and just being able to put my hands on everything I might need has transformed my day-to-day working.

What has impressed you the most about your new van racking set up?

The quality of the racking and additional shelf storage space it created.

What are the time saving benefits?

I definitely spend less time hunting through a disorganised van to find things for sure!

In terms of the accessories you’ve customised your van racking with, which is your favourite?

Spray can holders. You can see exactly which can you want instead of rooting through a shelf to find it.

If you had to do it all again, would you do anything differently?

I’d have bought bott Smartvan van racking a year ago when I bought the van!

If you could change anything about the order / design process what would it be and why?

I wouldn’t change anything.

Do you have any advice for people considering racking out their vans?

Treat yourself and your van to the racking you both deserve. I wouldn’t be able to do my job without my van, it’s the most important tool I own so look after it and your kit. Install bott Smartvan racking; you won’t regret it.
