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.
