Expanding your service capabilities beyond light-duty trucks can prove to be lucrative, thanks to strong sales that show medium-duty trucks—ranging from 10,001 to 26,000 pounds—are in high demand. The reason: They’re workhorses that allow drivers to transport heavy goods easily and safely, but don’t require a CDL license to operate.
“The number of companies that have drivers with a commercial driver’s license is almost nil,” Doug Acker of Mark Christopher Chevrolet in Ontario, Calif., told Business Fleet.
So while these workhorse trucks are made to adapt to the needs of a variety of businesses, they do need regular—and specialized—service to keep up with the demands placed on them by users. That’s why investing in versatile lifting equipment can help increase your customer base—and your bottom line.
