The electrician’s set-up
Jared is a mechanic turned electrician who works for a company called Liftshop that installs high end residential lifts. His company car is a ute, but his personal preference is for a van, mainly for security reasons. He says, working around Melbourne, tool theft can be a real issue. In fact, he tells us his tools were stolen just 12 months ago. He thinks a lot of ute tool boxes have external locks that can be quite easily broken into. So if you’re going for a ute, look out for modern canopies and toolboxes that are hooked up to the vehicle’s central locking.
He explains that, while electrician work is a broad trade, when it comes to fitting out your vehicle it’s always essential to stay organised on the job. He recommends installing racks for cables and a modular set-up with adequate compartments to separate out the smaller materials – like light switches and power points – you’ll need. Adequately fastening up your tools in boxes so they don’t move around while you’re driving is crucial. As is partitioning your boxes, so your tools and materials don’t get mixed up throughout the work day.
Key accessory for electricians
