Dealer Network Benefits

Equipment dealer partnerships can directly impact revenue streams and add value to business. Having a dealer relationship as apposed to buying equipment via live auctions or online rentals provides expertise for emerging technology maintenance and parts or field support. A dealership that provides a strong standing partnership, supporting equipment through every phase of the life cycle, is a true asset. With today's equipment innovations, having the expertise of a dealership's manufacturing team to troubleshoot problems is important. Dealer relations can reduce time-consuming issues such as chasing parts, researching machine functionality, and exploring financial options.

Energy Retrofit Construction

The energy retrofit market is steadily growing and the segment of the construction industry presents some unique opportunities as the economy recovers. With the economic downturn making credit availability for new construction scarce, construction contractors have been turning towards retrofit and renovation. Building and facility owners are continuously taking advantage of the financial and environmental benefits that come from mechanical, electrical, lighting, and window retrofits. Benefits include energy grants, tax credits, and energy savings that can be used to repay the funding for these renovations.

Energy retrofit construction requires the contractors to closely analyze the current level of electricity, heating, water, and other energy uses in a building and guarantee savings based on similar usage following the renovation. The contractor needs to be confident that the energy efficient upgrades will provide a company a certain amount of annual savings. With a combination of factors such as enhancements in energy efficiency technology, incentive programs, and an increased desire for "green" buildings, companies have plenty of reason to want these upgrades. Most of the facilities wanting energy retrofit work are in the public sector in the form of school districts and hospitals.

Project managers and contractors are getting more involved, taking clients through the whole process to ensure their visions are brought to life. Contractors are made instantly aware of cost expectations and can serve as experts to the client. They keep up with the current construction trends and can advise on matters such as energy efficiency. Energy Management Systems are one way to do this, with automated controls that monitor and optimize energy use. EMS automatically track temperatures, energy and consumption inside buildings to create the most comfortable environment at the lowest cost. Construction Business Owner Magazine states that "by installing a system that uses energy efficiently, clients are playing a proactive role in reducing energy consumption on behalf of their customers."

The prospering energy retrofit construction industry requires appropriate tools for the job. Most vehicle company's new model pickup trucks are appropriately fuel efficient, lighter, and create less carbon emissions such as the 2014 Ford F-150. The Durashell by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is also a perfect fit for the industry. Durashells are light and completely transferable on and off a standard pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation. This transfers to fleet and fuel savings for construction contractors. Call your Fleetwest representative toll-free at 866-497-7200 to get more information or go online to get a quote.

Now through May 30th, get even more savings with 5% off any new Durashell model transferable truck body.

Future for Ram Pickups

Ram pickup trucks have been making progress over the past few years since they were declared a stand-alone business. Their future goals to satisfy customers by being best-in-class fuel economy, payload, and towing capacity are materializing. By 2017 the 1500 series will be getting a big "update" and the HD pickups will follow a year later. Power and fuel-economy will be the theme of the updates. A CNG-injected diesel hybrid engine, start/stop technology, aluminum body, and better aerodynamics could be some of the features that will put Ram ahead of the competition and in the 'best-of' spot.

To get an entire best-in-class work truck, look no further than Load'N'Go by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies.  These transferable pickup tool boxes fit any short or long bed model Ram truck, as seen in the pictures below. They are completely transferable on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation for optimum flexibility.

Fully Equipped Communications Work Truck

The Load'N'Go Security Top by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies featured in the YouTube video above was customized specially for a communications company. Features were added so electrical technicians could easily work off-road and at night. LED lights were installed on the inside of this unit and inside the side compartments for easy access to tools and equipments at night. The LED lighting is controlled by a push/pull switch in the side cabinet, and can also be turned off when the technician closes the side compartment door for convenience.

A ladder rack with a snub-nose includes ratchets on the side to firmly secure ladders to the rack so they don't come loose in rough terrain. A 1000 lb capacity, 100% extension pull-out slide was added to this unit featuring a backboard so nothing falls off the back of the slide. A recess key-holder with locking cap securely stores additional keys for the unit. A camera with microphone was installed on the back of the unit so technicians can see and hear what's behind them. A remote-controlled spotlight provides added vision at night to light up the work area from a distance. Finally, a bumper winch kit has been added to the front of the work truck for optimum safety if a technician gets stuck in the field.

All Load'N'Go Security Top Service Bodies:
  • Come standard with an 1000 lb capacity customizable pull-out parts drawer
