Being a former builder, I know how valuable a PROPER vehicle is worth to any tradesmen.
Just having all your tools and hardware organized and in place can make that job so much easier.
I myself had a rear ender with 4, yes 4, other cars ( make sure to purchase a mobile phone holder when hiring). All I thought was “how on earth I am going to get to the job?” and “how long will my ute be out of action?”
Now you may wonder why I thought that, you may even say:
“Don’t worry, your insurance will take care of everything just hire a ute or van until its all fixed.” …. “WRONG!”
They gave me a ute, so every morning I would have to load all my power tools from cordless drills to large jack hammers as well as all hardware nails, screws, levels etc. then when I got to the job I would have to park onsite ( which most of the time is virtually impossible or right out front ,good luck with that) or my favourite , I will unload it. Then after work EXACTLY THE SAME THING. That’s not even the worst thing, I couldn’t grab any material as there was no ladder rack.
This went on for a while until I swapped the ute for a van. That was even worse, I’d pack the van with all my gear take off then turn the first corner and my gear would just go everywhere. I’d get to work open the back door and my drop saw would fall out. Still couldn’t get material as I had NO ROOF RACKS.
This went on for 4 weeks. To ad insult to injury, I ended up having another bingle.
That’s when I decided to launch Tray’d Ready.
