    Including ladders, poles, batteries, tanks (how big is your tank and is it always topped up at night?) trolleys, chemicals, trad gear gutter vac and poles etc etc... is your van chocka block?

    Do you have back up gear if your van gets broken into?

    Renault Trafic, 500L system. Only half full of gear but that's everything I need.

    Insured up the jacks both with insurance broker and also have a savings account so if needed I could replace it tomorrow so I wouldn't lose more than a couple of days work.

    As for the rest of the 'gear'? 'Not mine officer, you planted that there!! It's a set up!'

    Vivaro, 650L 2 man 9kw hot water R/O system, currently only 1 hose reel in the van, some trad things and a unger 18L bucket that I keep a few litres of water and detergents in to wash my cloths in between jobs as like to always wipe top of frames on ground levels etc. 4 poles 50ft, 30ft, 25ft and a pocket 4ft one. Various brushes, 8L pump sprayer ready filled with Ubik just keep it topped up so always ready if needed. 46ft gutter inspection pole and camera always on the van for quotes on gutter clears. Few spare parts and chemicals etc etc all in a box. 2 Batteries. 1 set of triples on roof, 1 set of steps on roof, and one little platform in back of van behind tank. Think thats most things. I try to keep the tank at the level needed for the next day, or put on fill early am ready for when I leave. Always try to end up with a empty tank come Fri evening.

    Have a work shed at home where I keep things I don't use all the time such as gutter vac and vac hose, spare hose reel, fittings and parts, pump sprayers, pre spray extension pole etc etc etc.
