The Load'N'Go Lowboy makes Debut
PHOENIX, Ariz. (May 15, 2009) — Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies has started delivering a new product for its Load'N'Go line, the Lowboy.  Load’N’Go is the industry’s first fully removable and transferable full size steel utility body.   The Lowboy incorporates Load’N’Go’s ease of transferability while being light enough to be utilized in the ½ ton pick-up truck market.  Enormous storage and the security of steel combined with light aluminum diamond plate are the foundation of this utility bed.
“This is the last tool box you will ever have to buy, as it will outlast many trucks” according to Richard Johnson, Manager of Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies.  “Technician downtime is also minimized.  When the truck is in the shop for service, your technician can still be working with all his tools in a rental truck, by transferring the Lowboy in a matter of minutes.”

The Load’N’Go Lowboy includes the following innovative features:
  • Cost-saving benefits because of universal fit for all major brand, standard pickup trucks
  • Perfect fit for both new or existing used fleet vehicles
  • Extra security – standard key locks plus pad-lockable security
  • Built-in forklift tunnels and lifting jack receptacles for easy installation and removal
  • Models available for both long bed and short bed pickups

The Load'N'Go is a steel transferable service body with aluminum diamond plate, full length side boxes, and a 1000 pound capacity slide out drawer that universally fits Ford, Dodge, and GM pickup trucks. Load’N’Go has a “no holes drilled installation” and built in forklift tunnels for easy transfer from one pick-up to another.

A slip-on truck body from Fleetwest is a service technician’s smart choice for low cost, maximum flexibility, and minimum downtime.  “Given the depressed economic conditions, price quote requests on our web page ( have skyrocketed lately,” Johnson states.  “Technicians are looking for the best price for a replacement work truck, when they come across a transferable truck body.”  “They realize they can ELIMINATE the cost of a new service truck, because they can use an existing pickup truck as a work truck.”
