Default Service truck checklist

I know there is a thread on here with a recommended inventory for a service truck. After numerous searches I can't locate it. Can anyone help? I finally convinced my boss to let me stock my truck with some of the basics that have in the past called for visits to the supply house!

MD, you got way too much time on your hands, and a very heavy work truck.

My van started with the basic mostly used electrical materials, which I also added a few common ballasts and common breakers.
When a trip to the shop was needed I would always grab a few extra, and if the shop didn't have it I might buy 1 or 2 extra from the supply house(if it's something minimal yet commonly needed)
My van was always very clean, but organization is a problem, and sometimes requires 10 minutes of digging through the drawers and bins, but at least that's faster than an hour trip to the supply house.

MD has a very elaborate list, but that's probably not even 1/10 of all the electrical parts that are out there. I don't know, but I think electricians have more parts than any other trade.....?

Not too much time. I just copied and pasted that list. The truck is a 1-ton step van. Lots of room in those. I've got space I havn't really even exploited yet. That list is old anyhow. There's actually lots more things than that. Some stuff I carry aren't even on the stock list. For instance, I just started carrying a few short and long nail plates. Keep in mind the differences between what you normally do and what I normally do. You mostly do new work on longer-term jobs. I mostly do service work, where I typically visit between 3 and 6 places each day. I pretty much gotta have 1 or two of most everything on the truck to get me though the day. It's one of the necessary evils of service work. I think service plumbers are just about the same way. I have a good friend that's a service plumber, and he has a whole toilet, an electric water heater, and a gas water heater on his truck at all times, in addition to thousand of various fittings of various materials. Faucet repair parts of every variety, and all kinds of stuff that I don't even know what they are. He has a pretty big cube van, and it's filled to the gills. You can pretty much bet he'll have what he needs on the truck to fix you up, which is also my goal. Fix it in one visit, without having to run for parts. I'll grant you that this doesn't always happen, but it's a worthy goal that works out most of the time. Plus, it helps to get the average ticket up, which is a main indicator of how much you'll make. It's hard to make upselling suggestions when you don't have it on the truck to install right then. If you have to run after it, the customer will often turn down the upsell suggestion.

Marc, haven't you posted a picture of your truck set-up somewhere before?

We had a service truck (E250) that was eating brakes at the rate of a set every 6 months, we had a local car guy working on it finally had the electrician take the truck to Ford, their car lift could not get it in the air they told the electrician he carried WAY TOO MUCH for the 3/4 ton truck to safely transport.

I found that since I started driving the van and stocking more parts on it that I sell more stuff. It's easy to add on to a service call when you are already there and have the impulse item that a customer might want.

Here's a more updated copy that's laid out a little better for the printer:

What happens if you're one above the "replenish at" mark?

When you're one above, you're supposed to dance The Funky Chicken.

No, the "replenish at" mark was setup so that you don't need to get down to zero of items that you often use several of in one day to get replenished. You can absolutely replenish at any time before the "replenish at" mark if you want to. You'd never want to get below that mark without replenishing if you can help it. I think that most guys generally struggle to put back on pretty quickly each item that they used the day before. Small matter anyhow. The list is just an example of one person's suggested service truck stock list. It's hard for an employee to convince his boss to get some of that stuff, I know. One method is to sneak stuff out of the shop here and there and put it on the truck, and add an item or two on PO's here and there that aren't for a particular job and stash them on the truck. Not that I'd ever recommend either of those methods....
