Jason Jones' Transit was taken from outside his home in Whittington, near Oswestry, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Jason is a multi-trade kitchen and bathroom fitter with his own business, JPJ Bathroom Installations, and had to spend Tuesday morning cancelling all his work and contacting police and his insurance company.
The van is his livelihood and without it he cannot work.
"I feel angry, and bitter, and gutted. I went out this morning to organise myself for the new job I have got starting today, and it was just gone.
"I have had offers of loans of tools and things, I've got to do something. I've got a family to support."
The van, registration number K008 LXM, is a white Ford Transit van, and went missing from outside Jason's home on Penabryn Avenue.
