I take it your doing commercial and ac ,guess it depends what your customers equipment is pumps for ac ,fan motors for small commercial gas of course,if you have a well stocked wholesalers close to you it may be a case of building one up to customers needs without going to much expense

Hi Jake,

Refrigeration - multifits 5-25W, couple of those small square axial motors, HP, LP, flare nuts, driers 1/4 to 1/2"
any second hand bits that crop up on the way, timers, capacitors, contactors perhaps just to get people out of trouble, few lengths of pipe of the normal sizes. Elliwell (or whatever your fav is) and probe or two. Few odd length of lagging to tart up here and there. Gotec/fairy liquid, whatever takes your fancy.

AC - Refrigerant, I have a little stash of second hand pumps to get stuff going. Mini limes about 70 so a tad much to keep, tank pumps around 40 so worth having one, some shops use them as dairy pumps. Electrically wise bit stuffed as it's all specific. First fix might take a hit there!

I started form there and have picked up stuff along the way. After a bit you get to know the kind of jobs you get and what you'd need to at least get stuff going if only temporary at least.

Good luck!
