The Durashell Slip-on Truck Body Makes Debut
PHOENIX, Ariz. (December 14, 2009) — Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies has released Durashell, a new line of fiberglass composite utility bodies to accompany the Load’N’Go steel body line.
The Durashell truck bodies are lightweight yet durable service bodies that come in 6 models: Durashell 140/170 (short bed/long bed), Durashell 165, Durashell 230, and Durashell 325/365 (short bed/long bed). The features include easy four point clamping system (no holes drilled installation), brake light, interior lighting, jack receptacles, double rear doors, optional slide out parts drawer, side doors and compartments, front and rear windows, and ladder racks.
According to Richard Johnson, manager of Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, “This is a great choice for companies looking to become more ‘green’. The transferability of the Durashell bodies allows someone to maximize the use of their existing trucks without increasing their fleet.”
The Durashell slip-on truck bodies include 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
- Lifting jack receptacles for easy installation and removal or optional built-in forklift tunnels
- Models available for both long bed and short bed pickup trucks
Transferable truck bodies have other significant benefits. Productivity and technician efficiency are greatly improved as a result of lowered downtime. The slip-on truck body can be transferred to a leased vehicle in an emergency without completely unloading/reloading, in a matter of minutes. The Durashell line is a great alternative to the panel van, especially if four wheel drive is a necessity. Once the Durashell is up fitted for your technicians needs, it will not need to be repurchased when the pickup is replaced. Signage is also only purchased once resulting in more time and cost savings.
The Durashell product line increases productivity, reduces cost, and improves efficiency. From pickup truck to work truck and back in a matter of minutes, the Durashell is the latest in work truck technology.
