Benefits of Transferability

trans·fer’a·bil’i·tyv. the ability to move from one location to another

One of the biggest benefits of transferability is to reduce downtime when it comes to repair and maintenance. When the work truck needs to go into the shop for maintenance or repairs, the Fleetwest transferable truck body can quickly be moved to another truck in minutes. The downtime associated with a technician’s tools and equipment needing to be transferred to another truck is now all but eliminated. The technician doesn’t waste valuable time in the field hunting for tools that were tossed into a borrowed truck since he is still working from ‘his own assigned tool box’.

Not only is the company saving valuable work time but, the technician is spared the frustration of working out of a borrowed truck body and enjoys more job satisfaction knowing he will always have ‘his own assigned tool box’. Technicians are more likely to take pride in their tool box resulting in higher job satisfaction as well. They will be glad they never have to listen to their tools and equipment rolling around in the back of a van again!  Higher job satisfaction converts to long term savings for the company through higher personnel retention and lower expenses related to hiring and training new people.

Security of tools and equipment can save thousands of dollars by avoiding costly break-ins and theft from the open bed of a pick-up truck. Protecting your valuable cargo in a slip-on truck body makes so much financial sense. Double locking doors and side compartments provide the security you need to prevent the cost and downtime of losing valuable equipment and time associated with replacing them.

The Load'N'Go ST-2000 is secure, heavy-duty, and transferable, on and off a pickup truck in minutes allowing you to transfer your tools and supplies from one truck to another without unloading. It fits most standard model long-bed pick-up and light enough to fit 1/2 ton pick-up trucks. The Load'N'Go ST-2000 pictured needs no holes drilled to install and provides additional storage, flexibility, and efficiency allowing you to work smarter, not harder.

Many industries have taken advantage of the benefits half ton trucks have to offer. Besides them being easier on the wallet to purchase, they are obviously lighter. The benefit of lighter trucks being increased fuel efficiency while reducing fuel costs. A half ton truck will cost you significantly less in gas than heavy duty pickups.

These models fulfill extensive storage and security needs for your valuable tools and equipment without sacrificing your trucks payload or fuel economy. They also can be transferred from truck to truck on the job site in minutes—even while fully loaded—and require no holes drilled-installation! All units are built to outlast multiple trucks and available in standard 8' bed and 6.5' bed applications.

The Load’N’Go ST-2000 feature 16 gauge steel construction, stainless steel hardware and latches, and a white powder coated finish. The Sportsman model comes standard with a rugged, black spray-on load liner finish inside and out, a powder coated pull-out drawer and lightweight aluminum side cabinet and rear doors. Options such as ladder racks, sliding bed trays, vise mounts, and much more are available! 

The Durashell  is made of a fiberglass composite that is rugged and light weight.

Prevent Work-Truck Theft

Contractors rely on their tools and equipment for their jobs. Whether you’re a small independent company or huge corporation, work-truck theft is an unexpected, costly hassle. These crimes not only delay work schedules, but can cause financial hardship. Fleet managers and independent contractors alike can put preventative measures in place to combat cargo theft by securing vehicles. Listed below are some tips to reduce the chance of theft:

·        Secure your vehicle – Always lock doors and close windows
·        Use heavy-duty locking tool boxes
·        Installing custom tamper resistant door handles
·        Install extra lighting and/or motion-censored lights where vehicles are parked
·        Install an alarm system
·        Photograph, document and record serial numbers of your equipment and tools.
·        Engrave your tools with your federal tax I.D number or company name

The easiest way to ensure the safety of cargo is with a secure service body. Most vehicles are equipped with heavy-duty locking mechanisms, and service bodies should not be an exception. Load'N'Go service bodies by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies are equipped with stainless steel, double locking T-handles, and made to protect expensive cargo from theft.

The ST-2000 is the newest Load’N’Go by Fleetwest. All Load'N'Go service bodies are fully transferable on-and off the bed of a pickup truck in minutes.  They can be transferred from one pickup to another with optional four-corner lifting jacks, a crane, or a forklift via the built-in forklift tunnels.The ST-2000 is a universal fit for all the major makes of pickup trucks such as Chevy, Dodge, and Ford. Some of the features available on the ST-2000 include a barn door configuration with double panel doors for additional security, a solid fixed top, and durable spray-in bed liner.
