Why Choose a 1.5 Ton Truck Rental?

So you are looking for a truck that has more power but you do not want to overkill? How about getting a 1.5 ton truck for your next project?

A truck that offers you a gross combination weight rating of 40,000 pounds (or better with the right suspension and tires) sounds about right, wouldn’t you say so? Of course, it is useless to buy a completely new truck off the line since you might not need it for a very long time. Instead of buying a new truck, we recommend that you go with a 1.5 ton truck rental.

There are many perks to enjoy by choosing a 1.5 ton rental truck when you get it through Summit Fleet. We are going to take a look at some of the best qualities of these trucks in our fleet so you can understand exactly what you stand to gain by using our services, which will help you with your next project.

Let’s get started, shall we?

1. Powerful Truck With Convenient Features

One of the more popular trucks we have in the 1.5 ton truck rental category at Summit Fleet is the Ford F550 Lariat. This is a powerful and versatile vehicle. The engine on the Ford F550 is the latest generation of the available B20-capable 6.7 liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V8. It puts out a powerful 350 horsepower and 750 pounds per foot of torque. This kind of power rating makes this truck more than capable of handling all the loads of a medium sized pickup truck.

It gets even better. The Ford F550 also has a crew cabin, which can easily seat 6 people. This means you and your crew can haul all that heavy duty equipment for the construction project along with all the people you need for the job. No more double trips to waste all that time and fuel.

2. Saves A Lot of Time

When you make the decision to purchase a new truck for your construction company, things are not as simple as just paying the retail cost for the truck and taking the truck right to the job site straight from the shop.

While you wish it was that simple, it isn’t. There is a lot of paperwork you need to sort out in order to initially acquire the vehicle. Once you have the vehicle, you also need to sort out the insurance, licenses and any permits based on the state you will be operating the vehicle in.

Combined with the fact that you have to go all the way to the showroom to get the car and then bring it back, it is safe to say that the process from when you get the vehicle to when you can actually bring it to use for the project is going to take a significant amount of time.

When you choose to get a 1.5 ton rental truck through Summit Fleet, you will not have to worry about a lot of time wasted in all the paperwork and logistics of acquiring the vehicle. In fact, there is literally going to be no time between you getting the truck and putting it to use for the project.

The paperwork is limited to a few necessities, which you need to sort out with us. We take care of all the insurance and permits for the vehicle ourselves. To add to that, we also deliver the vehicle to you wherever you are. Summit Fleet can deliver its 1.5 ton rental trucks to you anywhere in the country. If you want the truck to arrive at the office, you’ve got it. You want us to bring it right to the job site? No problem. We have got you covered.

At Summit Fleet, we understand and value your time. We understand how the need for an extra pickup truck can come along while you are on the job.

3. Saves Costs

A 1.5 ton truck is no joke. This is a pretty expensive vehicle in the first place. You will have to deal with a very high initial acquisition cost if you purchase a truck and then there is the maintenance of the truck, which will cost you extra.

If you will not be using the truck regularly, it will entail a lot of soft costs as well. You see, even when the vehicle is not being used, you still have to make sure that it is in proper running condition when the time comes. That means the truck will demand investment without providing you a lot of returns during the downtime.

Insurance premiums on pickup trucks are not pretty cheap either. You cannot run the vehicle without insurance and getting a comprehensive plan will carry its own costs for your company too. It is better to go for a 1.5 ton truck rental through Summit Fleet.

You will not have to worry about the initial acquisition cost. We already have the vehicle in our fleet and we will just deliver it to you. All our fleet vehicles are maintained to be in perfect running condition so you will get the vehicle ready to go. No worries about the tuning or other maintenance. All you have to pay for is the fuel and the maintenance while the vehicle is under your use.

When you are done with the project and no longer need the 1.5 ton rental truck, you can just return it to us. You will not have to worry about taking care of the vehicle while it is not running. Whenever you need a truck for another project, you can just have us deliver one to you again. It is as simple as that.
