Case Study: Home Services Company Fleet Service Vehicles

Background
Client is home services company, based and servicing the Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN metro area. The company provides a variety of home services, including: plumbing, HVAC, electrical, appliance repair and installation. They required a service vehicle that offers easy access to all parts and equipment, storage for tools, parts, supplies and repair components. Open space is needed in the van to transport equipment for installation in homes. Enough space is also needed to carry hot water heaters and toilets etc. Before working with Stonebrooke the client was using long, high roof vans that were 8 years old with ever increasing maintenance costs. Stonebrooke worked with them to recommend the right equipment solution that would meet their needs and, at the same time utilize a smaller van that would reduce the cost of the vehicle and fuel costs resulting in saving thousands of dollars!
