K9 Seat Covers

This one is for the officers that have a hairy partner that responds best to commands in German and tends to bite suspects rather than simply handcuffing them. We're talking about K9 officers. If you've got a bitey German human partner, the rest of this article isn't really going to apply. Hopefully. Yeah, your K9 partner isn't usually supposed to get up front. But it happens. It's not really that big of a deal except for buckets of slobber that you have to wipe up and the hair that gets EVERYWHERE! How can a dog lose so much hair and...

What’s the Difference Between A Good Fleet Manager and A Great One?

Do you know what sets a great fleet manager apart from a good one? https://youtu.be/TgdCjWbdDXY More Info on TigerTough Is it consistently coming in on budget? No. Is it keeping vehicle downtime to an acceptable level? No. Good fleet managers do those things. Great fleet managers spend time with their people. They talk to the folks that are driving their vehicles and the people fixing them. They listen to their problems and they listen to their suggested fixes.

Can Seat Covers Really Save You Money?

Is it really possible for a police fleet to save money with something as simple as seat covers? Yes.  It is.  We've already agreed that damage is inevitable, it's just a byproduct of the business, so we don't have to do dive into that again.  Half of the attendees that we talked to at the Police Fleet Expo this year wanted to eliminate fixing damages caused by wear-and-tear.   This is a pretty bad case but if you're a police fleet manager, you've most likely seen seats that looked similar. We won't use a seat quite this bad in our example...

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...
