Getting custom specifications on your Ford truck can open up a world of possibilities, whether for personal or commercial use. Upfits refer to a set of accessories or augmentations for an existing vehicle that are customized to the owner’s needs. Upfits can include shelving, roof units, cooling units, partitions, safety equipment, and more. Upfitted trucks are designed with efficiency and ease in mind, and can allow workers to be more efficient on the road as well as to the job site.
Here at Hillsboro Ford, our expert technicians can provide you with top-notch upfitting customized to your needs. Not to mention, many of our pre-owned trucks come pre-upfitted with standard components at an ultra-affordable price. Let’s explore more aspects of getting your truck upfitted.
Benefits of Upfitting Your Truck
- Upfitting makes your job easier and more organized because it is customized specifically for your job.
- Can be made standard across a fleet for all employees to ensure a standard of service
- Better fitted vehicles make for more productive drivers and can attract more qualified employees
- Upfitting allows you to bring all the equipment you need for your operation. If you’re using the vehicle as your work truck, a vehicle upfit will give you the assurance that you’ll have all the tools and equipment to accomplish a job.
- Upfitting increases your margin of safety, especially as a result of standardized training for your employees.
Things to Consider Before Upfitting
Before upfitting, there are a couple of things to think about. Because upfits are custom, there can be so many options to filter through. It is important to know what you need for your job before looking for an upfit solution. Vehicle style, the number of trucks you have, your upfitting design, your budget, and the length of time you need to complete your customization can all impact the upfit that you choose.
If you’re managing a fleet, it would be wise to avoid making an upfitting decision on your own as it could affect many parties. Always seek involvement and representation from employees because they know what’s best for them to be able to perform their tasks efficiently and effectively. Do what’s best for the general majority and not for individual employees.
