Why Protecting Your Commercial Work Trucks Matters Now, More Than Ever
The freight industry remains at the forefront of the public health crisis, delivering critical medical equipment and supplies, food and other goods to businesses and consumers. While much of the focus in recent weeks has been on long-haul drivers, a growing number of consumers sheltering in place are dependent on local fleet and delivery drivers to access essential goods and services. That includes services across the trades, including plumbing, HVAC, cable installation and repair, facilities management, contractors and more, who continue to respond to needs throughout their communities. That makes protecting the valuable work trucks and fleets you rely on to keep business moving forward more important than ever.
“Those driving and operating work trucks, construction and agricultural equipment have had to adapt to significant changes in recent weeks, whether that’s taking time to sanitize equipment before and after each shift, wearing masks or employing a greater number of vehicles to maintain social distancing between workers,” said William Eskridge, TrüNorth Global Chairman/CEO. “Work trucks are the lifeblood of many of these businesses. Whether you depend on your light and medium duty commercial work trucks to haul materials or deliver goods, a breakdown can cost companies valuable time and money.”
Expensive repairs can sideline any business, especially when cash flow is tight. An aftermarket warranty helps to protect you, your business and your cash flow by covering components that are likely to fail at some point and result in costly repairs when they do. That not only saves you money and headaches, but significant downtime. “Now, more than ever, it’s critical for essential businesses to get their work trucks back in business following a breakdown,” Eskridge said. “Our goal is to help you do that as quickly as possible.”
