Defog your windows TWICE as fast using SCIENCE- 4 easy steps

Who has time to wait for the windshield to defrost?

I may not live somewhere that it snows, but still find mornings that you go to leave and the windshield is frosted or fogged up. If you are like me, you're running late for work  and need to defog them as quick as possible. I found a video that shows you how to speed up that time and the science behind it. The nerd in me loved it and thought I would pay it forward. You gotta love science, especially if it gets us to work safely!

Safety is just one of the benefits to our transferable truck bodies we offer here at Fleetwest. The Durashell 175 or 145 offers LED lighting, key less FOB entry and slide out work tray options as a few options with safety in mind.

Benefits of Keyless Entry

What is a key fob and how can it benefit you?

A key fob is a small hardware device equipped with built-in authentication mechanisms that make entering your transferable toolbox or vehicle easy and convenient. Although this wireless remote is nearly identical to regular remote clickers in appearance, it provides users with crucial benefits that support safety, convenience, and conserved time.

·         Convenience-Key Fobs eliminate the trouble of having to fumble through all of your keys to find the right one and save you time with just the simple push of a button.
·         Protection-You can rest easy knowing that your tools are secured from while inside on the job, yet still readily accessible with the click of a button.
·         Efficiency-It also makes it easier for workers to unlock their toolbox with hands full of tools. Not having to spend tedious amounts of time putting down or dropping tools just to unlock your toolbox door will optimize worker efficiency.

Fleet professionals can take advantage of these benefits when optimizing their fleets with transferable truck bodies. The Durashell line by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies supports these benefits by incorporating the use of keyless entry with the use of key fobs. Take advantage and optimize your fleet with keyless entry on the new Durashell 175 and 145 models by Fleetwest! 

The Durashell line offers a rugged service body solution without sacrificing fuel economy or payload. Durashell bodies can be customized for any industry with countless options to choose from. With standard LED lighting, slam lock automotive grade latches and keyless entry system, the Durashell is the leader in innovation and built with the user in mind.

How to cut downtime costs...Transferability!

Fleet and self-employed technicians alike depend on their vehicles to get the job done. Accidents, driver time off, work truck maintenance and repairs result in costly downtime; simply put, there is no good time for downtime. Downtime cost is an important factor to consider when running a fleet.

Preventative measures can be taken to avoid downtime, and to handle costs when downtime occurs.  Knowing the employment costs (salaries, commission, etc.) as well as the variable and fixed costs of vehicles can help in preparing for the unexpected. The best way to lower or eliminate downtime costs is by having a plan.  

Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies provides you with alternative service vehicle options. When a pickup truck is in the shop for maintenance or an accident occurs, Durashell and Load'N'Go service bodies can be moved from the damaged pickup truck onto another in minutes, fully loaded.

With traditional bolt-on bodies, continuing to operate a work truck depends on the condition of the pickup or van. This means that an individual or company continues to incur expenses until the vehicle is repaired. When a vehicle and its driver are out, there is a considerable loss per hour between hard and soft costs. Those costs can be controlled with a transferable truck body because it does not depend on the condition of the vehicle.

Load'N'Go and Durashell service bodies are installed with the use of lifting jacks, forklift or a crane. No holes are drilled so there is no permanent damage done to the pickup truck or service body. Problem solved! Your technician can continue his service calls with his personal service body, tools and equipment until his vehicle is repaired and then the service body can be transferred back again, fully loaded.
