Renovating Locksmith Van: An Exciting Overhaul Project

Hello everyone! I’m Terry from Mr. Locksmith, and I’m excited to share with you an upcoming project that we’re embarking on. As a locksmith service company, our service trucks are vital to our daily operations, and today I want to take you through the exciting transformation we’re planning on one of our older locksmith trucks.

Sourcing and Preparation

One of the key steps in this project was sourcing the right tools and equipment. We didn’t just rush out and buy everything at once; instead, we patiently waited for Milwaukee special deals at different companies and even the big box hardware stores. By strategically hitting these sales, we were able to maximize our investment, often scoring free batteries with our purchases. This approach helped us gather everything we need bit by bit.

Upgrading Locksmith Service Truck

The truck we’re upgrading has served us well over the years, but it’s gotten to the point where it’s just too cluttered to work out of efficiently. So, we’ve decided it’s time for a complete overhaul. Initially, we’re planning on installing about eight packout boxes in our locksmith truck, and possibly more in our van. Plus, we have a brand new pickup truck, a 2024 model, on its way that will also be part of this project.

The Transformation Plan

We’re going all-in with Milwaukee’s Packout system right from the start.

Milwaukee Packout Locksmith Setup

I’m Terry from Mr. Locksmith. We’re going to actually I bought all these, we bought these bit by bit. If you hit the Milwaukee special deals when they’re at different companies or even the big box hardware stores, what we did is we maximize, we hit the minimum we could buy and then get free batteries.

We’re going to upgrade one of our locksmith service trucks. It’s done in the traditional way and it’s just full of, it just can’t work out of it anymore. So we’re going to modify that. I think we’re going to put about eight boxes in our locksmith truck, maybe more in our van. We have a pickup truck coming as well and we’re going to do that.
