Safety First

Conscious driving is essential for road safety while driving pickups. There are many important factors that contribute to being a safe driver. Pickup drivers have to make mindful decisions while on the road. It is important to remember the extensive damage trucks can cause in collisions.

Here are some tips to help you be a safe driver:

Don’t let your cell phone distract you!
Avoiding your phone while driving is an easy way to stay focused on traffic signs and signals. Texting and talking on the phone is a distraction to drivers and causes many unfortunate accidents.

Keep a steady pace
Speeding and driving too closely behind other cars is something to be avoided while driving. Steady driving is a smart and easy way for drivers to pay attention to blind spots and remain safe and focused on the road.

Hauling cargo wisely!
Tools rolling around in the bed of your pickup are an easy way to become distracted on the road. This problem can be avoided with the proper storage options available with Fleetwest transferable truck body options. Fleetwest now offers the New Durashell 175 and 145 models equipped with:

·        Customizable storage space
·        Automatic LED lighting for side door and rear access
·        Keyless entry
·        Heavy duty latching system
·        Weather tight seal

These are just a few features of the Durashell 175 and 145 that ensure endless support for safety on the road!

Why Transferability is a Good Choice

Retiring and replacing service vans and trucks is a dreaded but, necessary part of doing business.  When it is time to purchase a new vehicle, the transferable truck body can simply be moved from the old truck to the new one.  The transferable truck bodies are built to outlast multiple trucks with limited warranties as high as 10 years on the service body.  Once again the savings to the company is substantial since there is no need to replace the service body and the residual value of the pick-up truck is higher because you are trading or selling a traditional pick-up that has a higher resale value. 

The initial cost of purchasing a slip-on truck body versus a traditional bolt on unit is very comparable.  Upon the purchase of a replacement truck, the company now saves the entire cost of replacing the service body and after this scenario is repeated multiple times, the savings become big dollars!  Coupled with these savings, the company can wrap or paint their marketing logo and information on the transferable truck body which will move right over to the new truck with the unit. 

Lower fuel costs, reduced downtime, added security, higher personnel retention, lower hiring and training costs, higher residual truck values, quicker replacement service vehicles and lower marketing expenditures are just some of the many reasons it is time to move over to the new way of managing your truck fleet.  The savings associated with introducing a transferable truck body program into your fleet will offer the company immediate as well as long term savings that will make any CFO or accounting manager smile all the way to the bank!  

To enhance the use of pickups, owners should consider Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, who offer a line of lightweight, fiberglass composite service bodies that follow the Sustainable Fleet Standards by increasing efficiency, reducing emissions, and saving on fuel costs. Durashell transferable service bodies are available with endless options to customize work trucks and make them ideal for any type of fleet. They are lighter than the standard steel service bodies because they are made of fiberglass composite. Lightweight service bodies mean less fuel consumption, emissions, and savings for fleet management. Durashell utility bodies are completely transferable on and off your pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation. Fleetwest offers the most efficient transferable service bodies for the trades industry, including construction, plumbing, and mechanical industries.

How Transferability Can Benefit You

When the truck needs to go into the shop for maintenance or repairs, the 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 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 and light enough to fit 1/2 ton pickup trucks. The Load'N'Go ST200 pictured needs no holes drilled to install and provides additional storage, flexibility, and efficiency allowing you to work smarter, not harder.
