Durashell by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is a unibody fiberglass construction capsule with absolutely no fillers in the fiberglass. Fiberglass composite structures are both lightweight and durable, improving fuel economy while outlasting multiple pickup trucks. Durashells are a universal fit across all major makes of long or short bed pickup trucks such as Dodge, Chevy, GMC, and Ford.

The Durashell is completely transferable from one truck to another in minutes, fully-loaded with the use of built-in forklift tunnels, optional lifting jacks, or a crane.

Latest Work Truck Technology

What will work trucks look like in the future? The way we are progressing, they will be much more energy efficient, lightweight, and have driver-friendly telematics. I predict that Compressed Natural Gas will take over the heavy-duty vehicle market as the fuel of choice. We have already begun to see major increases in natural gas powered heavy-duty trucks. Enhanced batteries, improved aerodynamics, and lightweight material are more trends becoming standards in the work truck industry.

Greenhouse gas regulations are pushing innovation to take lead in the work truck industry. Simply put, companies are going to create economical work trucks in order to stay competitive and improve the market rather than because they have to. Competitive hybrids are using new ways to take advantage of electrical power such as electromagnetic rails.

In order to stay in the competition, companies will need to match equipment with fuel economy and design for customer value. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is doing just that with their line of Durashell service bodies for work trucks. Durashell service bodies are rugged, lightweight, and transferable. They improve fuel economy of work trucks and create more flexible fleets because they can easily transfer from one vehicle to another in minutes, fully loaded.

Fiberglass Pickup Truck Bed Topper
Durashell service bodies are perfect for the HVAC, electrician, auto-glass repair, and pool industries to name a few. They fit long and short bed major pickup truck makes such as Ford, GMC, Dodge, and Chevy. Call your Fleetwest representative toll free at 866-497-7200 to get a Durashell quote or visit and start saving fuel today!

Work Truck News

Michelin donates tires to the Yellowstone National Park fleet of 800 vehicles which include security vans, garbage trucks, and specialty tractors. According to Work Truck Magazine, Michelin has been working with Yellowstone to reduce the parks green house emissions 30 percent by 2016. The tire company also offers training for specialized tires to improve vehicle performance and lower maintenance costs.

The partnership will reduce:
  • Yellowstone operating expenses - Michelin donates the tires and services to the park yearly.
  • Consumption of raw materials - tires can now be replaced every 2-3 years rather than yearly.
  • Fuel consumption - due to Michelin's green tire technology that makes driving more economical.
Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies reduce the costs of owning a work truck or fleet of trucks:

Green Work Trucks

One day being 'green' will seem as commonplace as safety practices within fleets. Much like the awards presented to companies for safe practices, Green awards are given for the leaders in efficient energy. CNG powered machinery ranging from concrete mixers, dump trucks, and tractors are helping fleets to increase environmentally sound practices.

 New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently announced a truck voucher incentive program that will provide 19 million dollars for electric-battery, hybrid, and CNG commercial trucks. This energy efficient transportation is intended to lower the carbon footprint of New York and meet clean air standards. 9 million dollars will go towards battery-electric vehicles for 30 counties that did not meet federal clean air standards. The remaining 10 million is for electric-battery, hybrid, and CNG commercial trucks in New York City.

The mayor would like to encourage the deployment of advanced vehicle technology. The voucher will also provide emissions control devises for diesel engines in order to lower New York's carbon footprint. The incentive is being administered by New York State Energy Resource and Development Authority. The commercial trucks are class 3-8 and include large pickup trucks.

Lightweight service bodies are ideal in order to create a 'green work truck'. Not only will having an energy efficient vehicle reduce carbon emissions and fuel costs, but it also shines a positive light on companies because they are environmentally conscious. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies offer the Durashell, a lightweight fiberglass composite service body. This service body is durable, yet lightweight so it will not add unnecessary pounds to a work truck.

Work Truck Accessories

Ladders and other long cargo such as pipes can take up the majority of storage space in a work truck. In order to optimize storage space and organization, adding a ladder rack to your service body makes a world of difference.

Benefits of adding a ladder rack:
  • Ladder racks provide the best angle to secure loads. Placing ladders or long material on top of your service body frees up storage space inside for smaller parts and expensive cargo.
  • Accessibility is easier when ladders are securely stored on top of your work truck. Rather than moving tools and material to get to a ladder, simply take it down from atop.
  • Road safety is increased when ladders are stored on top the length of a pickup truck. When ladders stick out from the back of a vehicles, accidents are more likely. This could create expensive accident or insurance costs for you and/or your fleet.
  • Easy accessibility to heavy materials such as ladders eliminates the risk of personal injury. Maneuvering heavy ladders can cause back injury. Having a secure ladder rack makes accessing these heavy materials easier and safer.
Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies offers multiple styles from simple steel racks to hydraulic ladder racks. Hydraulic ladder racks further optimize convenience and security because of their drop-down feature that provides easy access to materials. 

Now through 8/31 you can get 50% off any Load'N'Go ladder rack with the purchase of a new Load'N'Go service body. Call your Fleetwest representative toll free today at 866-497-7200 for a quote on a ladder rack and Load'N'Go service body.

Fleet Disaster Preperation

The Calm Before the Storm

Natural disasters can be devastating, and expensive, for individuals and companies. The amount of tornado, hurricanes, and earthquakes that have caused mass amounts of damage in recent history is shocking. The best way to avoid devastating natural disaster costs is through preparation and disaster readiness. There are ways for fleet managers to mitigate the effects of natural disasters.

Effects range from impacts on associates to property loss. Not only can disaster preparation save money from the loss or damage of property, it can also prevent injuries and even save lives.
  • Risk Insurance - Understanding the liability policies that are offered and keeping up-to-date with these policies is key. Back up files and know where they are stored.
  • Comprehensive Planning - Defining responsibilities through communication can be a game changer when natural disaster hits because everyone knows their role. Prepare fleet vehicles and equipment in a way that's functional and easily accessible.
  • Recovery - Ensuring that everyone is safe and unharmed is the first step to recovering from a disaster. Contacting insurance companies immediately and assessing the damage will put you on the road to recovery.
The biggest loss for fleets during a natural disaster can be their work trucks. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies offer a solution. Load'N'Go and Durashell service bodies by Fleetwest can easily be transferred from one pickup truck to another. This allows for a more versatile and flexible fleet.

Rightsizing a fleet with slip-on truck bodies means less vehicles are needed because service bodies are interchangeable. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies can be removed with either built-in forklift tunnels, a crane, or optional lifting jacks. The lifting jacks provide a secure way for the service bodies to be stored. Much like a tool box, Load'N'Go service bodies can be removed from a pickup truck and stored in the garage. Knowing that service bodies can be stored safely with expensive tools and equipment inside provides peace of mind.
