Pimp your trade van in 4 easy steps

As a trade, your van is your castle. We’d wager it’s where you spend the majority of your time, so it needs to be comfy and true to you.

It also, of course, needs to be decked out in true ‘Pimp My Ride’ style. Well, within the confines of customer friendliness, of course…

Netflix and drill

Install a flat screen in the back. Not only is it great for when you need to catch up on all the latest streaming essentials, but it also serves as a great tool to show your customers’ photos and footage of other projects to inspire them

Coffee machine

Don’t wait for the depressing instant coffee when you get to the job. Did you know you can buy coffee machines that plug straight into your cigarette lighter or in-van USB port? Some of them even take espresso pods…fancy.


Feel like a real life trucker by buying a neon light for the cab of your van – some companies even let you customise your wording.

Your mate’s face

Picture the scene. You’re on a long drive to your next job, the road
spreading out in front of you. What could be better to keep you company than your mates’ faces, dangling from your rear view mirror? Yep, Firebox sells car air fresheners with people’s faces printed on. Brilliant.
