Peugeot Partner Racking Ideas

Hi All. Just wondered if anyone has any ideas or has fitted racking in a Peugeot Partner van for garden maintenance. Toyed with the idea of a bigger van but money and the fact that current van is such a good runner without any problems, I've decided to keep it another year or two. With all the machinery, tools and everything else it can be a bit awkward. Considered a system of three long drawers down one side to put tools, hedge trimmers and the like, which slide out the back, allowing me to put lawnmower in and petrol and tool boxes alongside. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

    Hi David, I run a Dispatch which is a little bigger, but I've gone for the racking down one side setup and I don't think I'd change it. I've given all the gear a good clean over winter and repainted the inside so it's looking it's best right now. Shame to get grass in it really.

    • Great idea, looks immaculate! I need to measure everything up to get the right size drawers/shelves, not sure where or how to cater for the strimmer yet. I was tempted with the Peugeot expert before deciding to keep the smaller partner. I'll have to get it sorted before I'm flat out again.

        The strimmers are pretty awkward buggers! Ideally I would like a set of shelves across the width of the bulkhead leaving space for mowers side by side, plus waste or a ride-on. But it would have to be a Relay/Boxer sized van for that! Post some pics of the finished van when you're done - it's always good to ideas from others.
        • I will, by then I'll hopefully have solved the strimmer problem. Definitely like the idea of using the back doors. Cheers.

    wow Ross looks great 

    i recently bought metal racking to fit down one side. where as before most of the tools  used to roll about the floor. that certainly seems to have helped. but i never thought of using the back door for some bits and pieces. thanks for sharing that. :)

      Thanks William. The spades, rakes etc go on one shelf and the hedgecutters, blowers go on the next. Both are accessed via the left side door. I used a combination of garden tool hooks on the rear doors and a B&Q spring loaded tool holder - this fits the folding saw, trowels etc so they are always close to hand. I also grip-filled a 2x4 to the bulkhead and put coat hooks on it for hi-vis, protective trousers etc, bags. Like you, my aim is to not have anything (bar the mowers) on the main floor. A place for everything and everything in its place.
