Every once in a while, there will come a project for your company that requires a little bit of heavy lifting. Having a vehicle capable of transporting that heavy equipment makes life a lot easier, doesn’t it?
What if your company does not have a truck that can fulfill the duties you need it to for a job? Will you actually go through the effort of spending all that time and money in purchasing a new 1 ton truck just for one job? It sounds ridiculous, because it is.
If you really need that extra power for just a limited amount of time, you should opt for a 1 ton truck rental instead of buying a new one. Just imagine: your company has received a contract for a new job and you need more muscle to carry your equipment around. Would it not be amazing to be able to use a truck to complete the job without having to buy it?
Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should choose a 1 ton truck rental instead of purchasing one.
1. Amazing Features
One of the most popular 1 ton rental trucks that we have at Flex Fleet Canada is the 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty. A truck like this comes with a ton of useful and amazing features.
First off, the engine is a powerful 6.2 liter 8 cylinder beast that pumps out 385 horsepower. That much raw power can be used to transport a lot of heavy equipment in one go.
Add to the excessive horsepower, the cabin that can seat 5 people. This means that your crew and the equipment can reach the job site in the truck at the same time. No more extra trips to transport either of them first and the other one in a second go. The 6-speed automatic transmission combines with the four wheel drive to make it the perfect 1 ton truck rental that can go almost anywhere with ease.
2. Saves Time
One of the biggest issues with acquiring a new truck is getting all the right paperwork done, the permits, the insurance, the licenses and everything else to ensure the truck is legally allowed to operate. This makes a lot of back and forth from the time you acquire it to the time you are actually able to use it for the job.
Add to that, there is the fact that you will have to go and get the vehicle. Imagine all the time wasted in just travelling to and getting the vehicle back from the show room. If your company is on the clock and time is a luxury that you and your crew do not have, this is definitely going to be a problem.
With a 1 ton rental truck, many of your problems with time will go away. You see, at Flex Fleet Canada, we already have the vehicle in our fleet. All you need to do is tell us the requirements of your project and we will provide you the 1 ton truck rental (or trucks if you need more than one – many companies do). You will have a minimal amount of paperwork to deal with (there has to be at least some paperwork, right?).
Do you need the truck delivered to your office? Do you need us to deliver it to the job site directly? Wherever you need the truck, we will deliver it to you there. Flex Fleet Canada values the time of its customers and makes sure that there is as little time between you ordering the truck and the time you are on the road with the vehicle. All the necessary permits are taken care of and the vehicles are ready to go.
3. Maintained Vehicles
One of the biggest concerns regarding rental trucks is going through all the effort to check their maintenance and condition. It takes a considerable amount of care to keep your vehicle in optimal working condition. With Flex Fleet Canada, the 1 ton truck rental will be delivered to you ready to go.
We take care of all the major maintenance needs of the trucks in our fleet. All you will have to worry about is minor maintenance, like oil changes, and fuel while you have the car in your possession. The model will come to you in optimal condition, waiting and ready to get back on the road.
4. Saves Costs
Arguably the biggest reason to opt for a 1 ton truck rental instead of purchasing a new unit is the cost. Acquiring a new truck has many upfront costs. It is not just about purchasing the truck, you also must take care of all the licenses and insurance among a million other things.
Once you have paid for all of that, regular maintenance of the truck is not going to be a walk in the park. Considering the fact that you might not be using the truck as much, it will turn into dead weight. You cannot leave the maintenance even if it is just standing still in the garage. You have to take care of it. That means during the downtime for the truck, you will actually be investing more money into it without any return.
This is not a problem when you get a 1 ton truck rental. You see, you can always return the truck back to Flex Fleet Canada when you are done using it. You will not have to worry about the costs of maintaining the truck. There is no upfront cost either. We are already going to acquire the truck and sort out all the paperwork. When the trucks are not in use, we take care of their maintenance.
Choosing a 1 ton truck rental has many advantages. You get to use the truck when you need it; we deliver the truck to you; we take care of the major maintenance and we pick it up from you when you no longer need it. Oh, and with Flex Fleet Canada, you can take our trucks to off-road job sites as well.
We understand the needs of our clients and we don’t have useless policies limiting our clients from using our vehicles as their company assets. What more could you want? Call us for more information and get a quote at 1-888-583-5338.
