Storage solutions for Volkswagen Transporter

I’m a self-employed electrician with a new Volkswagen Transporter. I drive long distances and carry a lot of tools and equipment, including a ladder. As you can imagine, the tools and equipment can shift around a lot during a long journey and it’s taking my ages to find anything. Can you recommend any storage boxes and racks for this van?

For the ladders, I’d recommend Rhino as they supply units for both long and short wheelbased T5s. www.rhinoproducts.co.uk

For interior racking, I’d suggest a visit to Sortimo. They fitted out my old Ford Connect a few years back and did a great job. They can supply all manner of boxes and racks, which will secure your stuff and also protect you in the event of an accident. www.sortimo.co.uk/
