When a jump start to your vehicle is required, jumper cables are a necessity and should be kept in the spacious storage area of your van at all times. Safety procedures for connecting and disconnecting cables will likely be given in a vehicle’s manual, and should be consulted in the instance of accidental battery discharge.

First Aid Kit

The inclusion of a first aid kit within your vehicle should be a priority, with the means of helping an injured passenger or patching yourself up in the instance of a medical emergency. First aid kits will typically include plasters, bandages, and other commonly required medical supplies. Be careful of the medicine you include in a first aid kit, as some prescriptions may affect driving, Always consult a medical professional before driving under the effects of new medicine.

Warning Triangle

Warning triangles are compact and small, meaning that they can be easily stored within a small van or similar vehicle. The practical reflective surface of these devices means that they are easily spotted from distance, and should be used in the instance of a roadside accident or emergency. You should position a warning triangle at least 45 metres behind a stationary vehicle, allowing plenty of time for approaching drivers to assess the situation and respond accordingly.

Cleaning Products

Beyond the obvious benefits of giving you a presentable vehicle that can represent your business formally, keeping a clean and maintained van will improve the safety of the interior, stopping a buildup of germs and preventing items from obstructing pedals and components. Cleaning products to keep in mind are sponges, towels, cleaning sprays and polish.
