With an economy booming, unemployment at the lowest rate in years, and the most competitive marketplace this century, general contractors, fleet managers, and company owners are doing everything in their power to gain a competitive edge. The ability to get a job done more efficiently, provide the best possible customer service, and perform work at the highest quality possible has never been more important than now. Many are looking to invest in the best equipment they can to ensure that they can gain competitive market share and grow their business. Creating a customized service truck or fleet of service truck, designed specifically to the needs of your business can increase your quality, efficiency and ability to wow every customer by your professionalism.
In this age, everyone is expected to be a professional at the job they perform. There are more options for customers to choose from, and they want to make sure they get the best value and highest level of service possible. By customizing your service truck or work truck, you are showing the first flash of professionalism from the moment you arrive at the job site. While most customers will not know why there are sliding drawers and strange storage areas surrounding your service truck, they will assume that those enhancements are for a unique purpose. As the old adage goes, you only get one chance for a first impression. By arriving at a job site, completely prepared and organized to a T, you are showing your customer that you are a top-shelf professional and that they made the right choice when deciding who will complete their job.
By investing in a customized service truck, you are investing in yourself and in your business. You are making the choice upfront to ensure that you have the most optimized piece of equipment possible to complete your work. All too often, it is an afterthought to have specified storage compartments and unique surface areas to store and haul YOUR specific equipment. What happens next, results in a messy, disorganized hodgepodge of equipment, rigged together to fit on a standard, cookie-cutter body. If you have ever attempted to pack a moving truck, it is much like that, except you have to try to make everything fit on your vehicle every…single…day. This is why smart contractors, fleet managers, and business owners are customizing their work trucks to make sure that every piece of equipment they own has its own home on the vehicle. Your equipment works hard for you. Give it the home that it deserves.
Efficiency and high-quality standards are paradigm in this highly competitive marketplace. Service truck customization allows you to complete a job more efficiently by shear organization. We have all been in an instance, scratching our heads, wondering where we placed a tool, a key, or a credit card. The result: it slows everything else down significantly. Through service truck customization and a little bit of discipline, we can reduce the instances of these inconveniences significantly. Through efficiency, quality of work can sky-rocket and add greater value and, again, a greater sense of professionalism to your customers and clients. Don’t lose out on business because of a sloppy work truck that looks like it was packed by a 3 year-old going to grandma’s house for a sleepover. Sure, you may not lose that job, but when it comes time to choose a contractor or company for the next job, your “customer” might be looking elsewhere. Who would you hire? The guy that knows where all of his equipment is stored, arrives in a vehicle equipped to do the very task that you called him/her for, and knows where everything is? Or would you rather call that guy/gal that showed up with a hammer ratchet-strapped to a tool box and had to look for their welding helmet for 20 minutes before starting to work. Were they billing while they searched for that helmet? I’m sure customers appreciate that.
Don't let this happen to you.
Be a professional, and consider customizing your service truck. For your business. For your children. For your tools without homes.
