Get in. Get out. Get organized.

Organization will set you free. If you’ve ever been on a busy schedule with an unorganized HVAC/R truck, then you know how inefficient a messy truck can be. But with the right equipment and some planning, you can save time and headaches.

For a well-organized truck, compartmentalization is essential. This means keeping your sheet metal tools in one tool bag and your service tools in another. You can also keep your most frequently used tools and materials in an easily accessible place.

Labeling and marking are another trick to make sure you can find things quickly. Use a system that works for you. That may be labels, color codes or a system you create. Do what makes sense for you, and it will be much easier to stick with it. Efficient organization techniques are essential for effective time management.

    I own the backpack is great to go up in attics and roof tops, with your main service tools.
