1. You’re Losing Jobs
Has your jobs won count gone down in the past few years? When a wreck happens in your service area, are competitors getting the job instead of you?
If this sounds like a frustration that you’ve been experiencing recently, it’s probably time to look into procuring a customized rotator wrecker.
2. Your Competitors Look Better
It’s true that looks aren’t everything, but if your competitor’s fleet has beautifully painted wreckers emblazoned with their logo on everything from the box, to the bed, to the boom — it might be time for your wreckers to catch up.
Consider upgrading to a modern rotator wrecker with all the important functional elements needed to get the job done, while appearing polished and acting as a drive-by advertisement for your business.
3. Requirements Are Changing
One of the biggest gripes for towing businesses is the seemingly constant changing of municipality rules, requirements, and regulations regarding what can enable someone to be a preferred tower in the region.
Unfortunately, because of this, investing in a new wrecker may be less of an option and more of a requirement.
4. Dated Fleet Vehicles
This consideration is relevant for almost every item on this list. While it’s true that older wreckers can still be effective for many jobs, purchasing a new rotator wrecker that expands your capabilities will only help you grow your business.
5. Service Area Expansion
If your business is growing, you may be looking at a new service area. This means new terrains and different types of wreckers that need handling (ex: ravines or cliffs that were not in your previous service area).
Rotator wreckers are great for tough jobs and tricky terrain, and should be considered in this instance.
