4 Signs That It’s Time to Upgrade Your Refuse Truck Fleet

Here are four signs that it’s time to replace your current refuse truck fleet:

  1. When the cost of maintenance outweighs the benefits of hanging onto your vehicles.
  2. When you’re missing out on the advantages of newer technology.
  3. When you have the opportunity to upgrade your trucks’ safety features.
  4. When your trucks are more than 10 years old.

Get in touch with Big Truck Rental today to learn about the benefits of our Complete Fleet rental solutions.

When It Just Doesn’t Pay to Repair

Eventually even the best-built waste hauling truck will simply wear out.

Sometimes this happens all at once, like when an engine or transmission suddenly fails. Other times it can occur over months or even years, as individual parts require replacement. If your repair costs are starting to mount, then it’s probably time to consider garbage truck rental.

Sometimes Newer Is Better

Waste disposal trucks have come a long way in the past few years. Modern examples offer cutting-edge features like improved fuel economy, electronic vehicle tracking, and labor-saving controls. Plus, having newer, more professional-looking vehicles will boost your company’s public image and help you to win new clients.

Safety Always Comes First

Distracted motorists, congested streets, and decaying infrastructure make our roads less safe. Luckily, newer waste hauling trucks are equipped with accident-preventing features like 360° camera coverage, antilock brakes, and high-visibility lighting. Think of the personal and financial cost that a single mishap can cause, and it’s easy to see why upgrading your fleet might be the smartest move you’ve ever made.

Additionally, replacing outdated and/or undependable trucks with new units is a great way to boost both worker morale and productivity. Your employees will appreciate the difference, and so will your bottom line.

Time Always Takes Its Toll

Even the best-maintained fleet will eventually fall victim to the ravages of time. Rubber seals crack, metal corrodes, and electronics become brittle and outdated.

Anticipating and preventing these problems grows more difficult as parts become harder to find. That’s why replacing your trucks every 10 years is a good rule of thumb to follow. One way to do this without the high cost of an outright purchase is with our convenient garbage truck rentals.
