The basic process for lining your vans insides might seem to be a bit of a waste of time. When you consider what you put in it you might think that a lining is just going to get ruined. Better that than the metal.  The main reason for a have a ply-lining is to try and protect to the insides of the van. Just think about all of the items that you shove in there in a day. When that’s up against the metal of the van it can scratch it and generally make it dirty and generally shabby. The worst result of that is that this can promote rust and discoloration that will ultimately make the vans value dropped deeply in price when you come to sell it on or part exchange. As it is an important asset you’ll want to get the most from it and the depreciation will be greatly increased if the van looks a mess internally. It doesn’t matter if you keep up with the servicing’s or even keep the outside clean the internals need to be decent as well.

What is exactly involved in ply lining? It’s quite a simple task. All that needs to be done is the application of ply wood to the interior of the van so that the floor side panels and the wheel arches and all squared off. That might sound like you’re going to lose space in the back and you might lose a bit but this will be minimal compared to what you save in the long run. Don’t be too concerned though as your type of job will relate to the degree of thickness of the ply that you will need. Experts will listen to your type of work and advise on the thickness accordingly. For example if you’re dealing with power tools or building equipment then you will need a thicker ply for protection. If it’s a light job role than the degree of thickness will need to be less.

It’s certainly worth doing and the costs saved in the long run are important to think about.
