Police Fleet Findings

We did a little survey at the 2018 Police Fleet Expo this year in St. Louis.  We asked police fleet managers about some common fleet problems and asked them which ones they'd like to eliminate if they could. If you're a fleet manager, whether it be police, fire, or commercial, you most likely can relate to issues that we presented to the fleet managers we talked to . The options were: DowntimeFixing damages caused by "wear and tear"Low resale or trade-in values on vehicles The results were as follows: 48 fleet managers would love to eliminate Downtime.45 attendees said Fixing...

It’s Pretty Bad.

We don't normally post pictures of torn-up seats because you know what they look like.  You might think "My people would never do that." or you may say "Beginners!  I wish mine still looked like that."  Either way, they're no fun to look at. Today is a little different though. This picture was shared by the Hollis, NH police department after they told us they were putting TigerTough seat covers on their new police cars. Want to guess how long that vehicle has been in service?  Three years.  That's all. Not only is the seat destroyed, the cushion is ruined...

Police Fleet Expo

It’s almost time for another Police Fleet Expo. The time when police fleet managers get together to compare notes and have meetings, classes, and a few beers together.  They also get the chance to check out the latest and greatest products from their favorite equipment manufacturers.

The TigerTough team is pretty pumped to...

While we were there, we asked attendees what they’d like to eliminate if they could.  The options were: Downtime Fixing damages caused by “wear and tear” 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...

It’s A No-Brainer

Franklin, TN is a historic city of about 75,000 people.  It takes a team to make sure a city that size runs smoothly.  That team requires a lot of equipment. Eight hundred pieces to be exact.  Meet the man that makes sure those 800 pieces of equipment are in tip-top shape, keeping the city going. David Barker has been the fleet manager for the City of Franklin for over 10 years.  He is in charge of purchasing and taking care of all the vehicles and equipment the city uses.  As a seasoned fleet manager, his priorities are to be as...
