Flex Fleet Truck Specs

Figuring out the logistics of renting commercial work trucks can be slightly overwhelming as there are many things to take into consideration. Everything from towing capabilities to the duration of a particular job, there are lots of moving parts that you need to think about before opting for a particular work truck.

The first and biggest question to help you in determining which truck is best for your business is the question of why.


Why Do You Need a Work Truck?

Depending on the type of project you’re working on, answering this question will play a significant part in helping you find the best truck to meet your needs throughout the duration of your project. If you’re working on a construction project, and the materials are a good distance away from the job site, you’re going to need a truck with towing capabilities. 

Additionally, with the towing capabilities, you’re going to have to look at the truck’s payload capabilities to know the maximum amount of weight it can safely hold and transport between both the passengers and cargo area.

Once you figure out your “why” for needing a work truck, the other moving parts will fall into place. The additional logistics to consider will include:

    • Cab Configuration: How many crew members will be needing transport to the job site? Cab options include:
      • Crew Cab
      • Extended Cab
      • Regular Cab
  • Fuel Type: This is a matter of preference on your part; Simply, do you prefer diesel or standard gas?
  • Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): This is important to the prevention of overloading the truck.

These are just a few of the important logistics to consider when determining which work trucks will be the best fit for your project needs. Once you look at the logistics of what you need in a work truck, that’s when you can take that information and go deeper into the “particulars” or specifications of the work trucks you’re looking to rent.

When deciding between multiple kinds of trucks, it is not a ‘one size fits all. Each truck brand and model is unique in its own way. When making the decision to utilize a work truck rental, be sure to consider the specifications of each different model. Take a look at the specifications of our fleet of trucks.
