Work Truck News Update

Best Pickup Truck

A dependability study done by J.D. Power and Associates ranked the GMC Sierra HD the best pickup truck from the past three years. The ranking includes the GMC 2500 HD 3/4 ton pickup, as well as the 3500 HD 1 ton model. The Big Red project truck given away by Pro Pickup Magazine is a GMC Sierra 3500 HD with a Powerbody by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies. What makes the GMC Sierra HD the best pickup truck? It is designed to do the job well, and to do it everyday.

Safe Driving Practices

Educating fleet employees on safe driver practices will help improve the corporate bottom line. Caring for vehicles with scheduled inspections and good upkeep is a start, but you can further save on maintenance costs with less vehicle wear and tear. Most warranties for pickup trucks and service bodies specify monthly or semi-annual maintenance such as moving part lubrication and do not cover accidents or exterior damage. You will save on insurance if fleet employees practice safe driving methods. The biggest return on safe driver education by far will be lowering fuel costs. Create an education plan involving defensive driving skills, vehicle awareness, and trailer towing techniques based on your industry. These key points will provide immediate results to lower fuel, insurance, and maintenance costs.
