New Wheels For 218 Inspect!
By Frank Lundeen - 218 Inspect Home Inspections
Being a professional home inspector, I find myself driving all over the greater Duluth, MN region inspecting homes. I pride myself in using the best, most high tech equipment available - some of which is very bulky and includes literally hundreds of different tools! All of this technology & tools can be difficult to manage when packing it into a common car or even truck. For this reasons, I've been on the hunt for a sweet little work van for some time & I'm pleased to report that I found the perfect rig for 218 Inspect! With this all said, I'm pleased to introduce the rolling office & billboard for 218 Inspect - a great Ford Transit Connect Van! Special thanks to my friend Jeff for his help in building this thing out!
Inside of the van live 2 Multi-Position "Trestle" Style ladders - one of which is only ever used inside of a home (for cleanliness), and other other one is a big tall one which is high enough to get me on top of most roofs. Additionally, I often carry a very long 32' extension ladder on the van's roof ladder rack - which will get me up on all but the highest roofs! Also inside of the van, I've got charging stations for my sophisticated electronic inspection equipment such as my Flir Infrared Camera, Infrared Thermometer, Moisture Meter, Radon Tester, Bluetooth Camera Extension Arm, and more! In addition to these high tech, electronic tools - there are literally hundreds of more usual tools which I use to do my in-depth home inspections.
Clients hiring a home inspector owe it to themselves to hire a professional with a commitment to modern technology, is accredited, presents a thorough & fun to read interactive inspection report, is professional, and is organized. Being set up with the best tools & an organized / professional vehicle is part of this equation!
