Downtime cost is an important factor to consider when running a work truck Fleet. Fleet managers and self-employed technicians alike depend on their vehicles to get the job done every day. Accidents, technician time lost, work truck maintenance and repairs result in costly downtime; and there is not just money lost, but opportunity as well. Fleet managers have to foresee these problems and have a prepared strategy to handle these unexpected costs.
How do you prepare for the unexpected?
Enter Fleetwest with alternative service vehicle solutions to help get Fleet work trucks on the road faster.
When a pickup truck is in the shop for maintenance or an accident occurs, Fleetwest service bodies are 100% transferable and able to be moved from the damaged pickup truck and onto another truck in minutes, fully loaded. With traditional bolt-on bodies, continuing to operate a work truck depends on the condition of the pickup. This means that an individual or company continues to incur expenses until the vehicle is repaired. When a vehicle and its driver aren’t working, there is a considerable financial loss per hour. These costs can be controlled with a transferable truck body because it is not dependent on the condition of the vehicle.
Fleetwest steel and fiberglass service bodies are installed with the use of lifting jacks, forklift or a crane; no holes are drilled so there is no damage done to the pickup truck or service body. 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. Problem solved!
