What Do Fleet Managers Want To Eliminate?

We were just at the Government Fleet Expo on June 5th and 6th.  We had a chance to catch up with some old contacts and meet new ones.  Obviously…it’s a trade show.  A bunch of people were there.

While we were there, we asked attendees what they’d like to eliminate if they could.  The options were:

  1. Downtime
  2. Fixing damages caused by “wear and tear”
  3. Low resale or trade-in values on vehicles

The results were as follows:

  • 25 attendees chose Downtime
  • 47 attendees said Fixing damages caused by “wear and tear”
  • 25 attendees said Low resale or trade-in values on vehicles

The good news is we can help lessen each of those problems.


When your vehicles need to be taken out of service for repairs, your company’s ability to perform at its best is taken away.  We can help by eliminating the need to take vehicles out of service to have the seats replaced or repaired. TigerTough seat covers are able to withstand the abuse a work truck, fire truck, or police vehicle takes and keep the seats from getting torn up or stained.  Invest 15 minutes when the vehicles are new to eliminate that problem and you’ve successfully eliminated the hours or days of downtime that would have happened when the seats had to be repaired.

Fixing damages caused by “wear and tear”

Wear and tear.  The past tense is worn and torn.  Like the seats in a work truck.

There’s no need to be ashamed, it happens to the best of them.  Your team is focused on getting out there and getting the job done, not being super careful how they get in and out of their vehicle.  Yeah, they should be careful, but they aren’t. Even though you keep harping at them to take care of their stuff, it seems like nobody listens.  We’re here to help. Let ‘em do their worst, we’re here so you can focus on more important stuff.

Low resale or trade-in values on vehicles

When you trade in a truck with 100,000 miles and an interior that looks like a bunch of chickens lived in it, they don’t want to give you a lot for it.  However, when you trade in a truck with 100,000 miles on it and the interior looks like grandma used the truck for grocery shopping, you’ll get a little more moolah for buying the next one.  We helped Black Hawk Energy services get an extra $3000 for their used trucks. Check out how:

If you’re interested in eliminating some of any one or all of these options, we just might be able to help you.
