I do allot of condos in highrises. It's really difficult to bring all the chemicals and supplies that I work with because I can only fit so many things in my spotting bag. I currently use a Cabelas magnum softside bag with the hard bottom. I really like the bag because it has allot of room and I can close the top over my spray bottles. It pretty much holds all my supplies like blocks, tabs, booties, rubber gloves all in separate pockets. The only problem is that it still isn't enough room to hold all the chemicals that I might need to perform above average service. Sometimes I leave money on the table because I don't have all my chemicals with me and I hate that. I'm in Chicago and most of the time I'm parking my van several blocks away from the job. I suppose I can try the Cabelas super magnum bag but then things get too heavy. I'm thinking I need something with wheels like a bag or box with a built in dolly. Does anybody have the same issue as me? And I'm also looking for suggestions on what type of rolling bags or boxes people might know of? Preferably with a hard bottom.

I do lock in and high rise work and this fold up organizer is great if the products aren't normally going to live in it in the van and are going to be stored on your shelves typically.

One way I carry more spotters is repacking them in very small containers which works great for me. I have 2 buckets nested under the hose reel with additional storage.

I'm looking at doing something similar to this with the square brute 40 gal in red, quiet square dolly wheels, black outside pocket organizer and some of these accessories. The square brute will give extra vertical storage options in each corner with 50-75' of hose securely in the middle.

Up date on the carrying bag. Got it and it’s made like garbage. Yes it holds lots but the handles don’t support the weight and when you pick it up they rip right off. Don’t waste the money.

Lowe’s sells some really well made soft side, hard bottom, rolling cases. Work really well. I have three. Small one my spotters, two for other stuff.
