“We used to use Ford Rangers for service because they got better gas mileage, but the F-150s have caught up with them in that regard. So we tend to use white F-150s for service and management while using F-250s for crew/installation.”

“We strongly believe in no-notes vehicles. The Chevy 1500 vans we have are all late models that we purchased used for cash.
We don’t believe in leveraging our company for our workhorses. We’ve been running Chevys since our company began 21 years ago.”

  1. We love our Chevy 1500 vans for service crews. Also have a couple pick up trucks that tow enclosed trailers for installation crews that also fill in for snow/ice service during the off season.
