All companies that use vehicles should be concerned with the overall appearance of their equipment as it is a very important advertising tool. Equipment that has a generally poor appearance can dissuade a potential customer from procuring your services just because it makes a poor impression on them, much like employee appearance does.
Reconditioning provides the following benefits:
- Improves fleet appearance and driver satisfaction
- Allows for regular wheel inspection for cracks, metal fatigue, oblong holes etc.
- Wheel is completely cleaned of all grease and grime build up and restored to like new condition. Bead leaks are eliminated as well as stem seal leaks
- Better appearance gives DOT less reason to scrutinize your equipment
This service is especially beneficial to fleets that have a retreading program in place with us. Wheels and tires can be removed at the same time and sent for processing. After the tire is retreaded, we mount it back on a reconditioned rim for delivery to the customer. This allows a fleet to maintain a better appearance as tires are replaced on units on a regular rotational basis.
