Benefits of Transferability


When your truck needs to go into the shop for maintenance or repairs, our transferable truck body can quickly be moved to another truck in minutes. Downtime associated with a technician’s tools and equipment needing to be transferred to another truck is 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’. When the slip-on truck body is assigned to a technician, they 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 the van again! Another bonus is they will only need to heat and cool the cab of the truck. 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 Fleetwest Fixed Top 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 and short-bed models. The Fleetwest Fixed Top pictured needs no holes drilled to install and provides additional storage, flexibility, and efficiency allowing you to work smarter, not harder.

How to Care for Your Transferable Truck Body

 We service our truck by changing the oil, filters etc.  We need to stay on top of it or our truck life will not be so great.

Below are some ideas to service your transferable truck body for a longer life as well.

·    Give your Fleetwest Transferable Steel Truck Body 2 or 3 coats of a good automotive wax when you first get it. This will give another layer of protection, as well as making it clean up easier.

·    Keep all hinges, locks and lift strut ball studs lubricated.  White lithium spray works for most applications, however in very dusty climates a better choice would be a dry film graphite spray.

·    Occasionally clean the rams on the lift struts.  Just a wipe with a soft cloth.  This will extend the life of the strut by keeping the seals clean.

·    Keep it clean! By keeping your Fleetwest Transferable Steel Truck Body clean you will extend the life of the finish and prevent surface rust.
