Heil, Chattanooga, Tennessee, announces its Ready Truck Program has been designed to help operators alleviate issues that can be caused by delays in the production and delivery of new garbage trucks.
"Waste haulers, whether private, public or municipal, don't have the luxury of waiting months for a truck. If you have a new contract, or have lost a truck due to an accident or fire, patience just isn't an option. If they aren't able to get a truck on the route within a short period of time, the impact to their bottom line can be substantial. The Heil Ready Truck Program enables us to deliver the trucks our customers need, when and where they need them,” Larry Angel, general manager of Ready Truck, says.
According to Angel, Ready Truck has an array of completed garbage trucks in stock and ready for delivery.
"We always have 25 to 30 completed trucks on the ground and ready for delivery. We've been doing this for so long, we are able to anticipate the needs of our customers, and work extremely hard to ensure that we have the most popular configurations in stock and ready to roll," he says. "If the configuration of the stock truck meets the customer requirement, they can ship almost immediately."
For customers in immediate need of a vehicle with specifications not reflected in their stock inventory, Ready Truck has options, according to the company.
"With vehicles always in production at the factory, we are able to modify a build, but delivery is then based on standard factory throughput. Customers needing product right now are encouraged to choose from our wide assortment of configured vehicles ready to ship," Angel says.
Beyond the quick delivery times, Angel says Ready Truck's volume purchasing can help save their customers money as well.
"We are one of the largest chassis purchasers in the United States. Many people have become aware that we are able to provide trucks very quickly, but when they find out that we pass our volume pricing on to the end user, it makes dealing with Ready Truck a no-brainer," he says.
