One of the largest investments for any government agency is vehicles and equipment. It is especially true for a road or street department. Well managed and maintained equipment can result in 20% or more cost savings on equipment costs alone. Improved efficiency of the users can result in even more savings. We can help you achieve these savings by establishing good fleet management procedures.
We can provide generic specifications with the right components and options for your equipment. The “Low Bid” is not always the best bid, so good specifications are a must. If you choose, we can prepare more selective specifications, analyze the bids, and recommend the best bid.
