    Is it time for an upgrade?

    Here are 4 tips on how to tell when it might be the right time for an upgrade:

    Timing – Most truck chassis are replaced after five to eight years or 50,000 to 80,000 miles. And for good reason: this is the point that your truck’s warranty will expire and it will have its maximum resale value! 

    Repair Costs - When unexpected repairs start to eat away at efficiency. It’s time to consider replacement when maintenance becomes unpredictable and costly.

    Growth - As a business grows, goals grow too and need to evolve. You may have outgrown your current equipment, need to reach a little higher, lift a little more or simply add to your fleet, to be able to take on bigger and better jobs.

    Employee Feedback –  Operating an older truck can be tiring and frustrating. Not only will a new machine will help get the job done more efficiently and seamlessly it is also a powerful morale booster and recruiting tool.

    Used equipment values are higher than ever.  Let us know how we can assist you in your fleet planning needs.
