What is Refurbishment?
Each Project Is Customized
No two refurbishment projects are the same. Our team will work with you to develop a refurbishment plan which fits within your budget and satisfies your needs.
Full Refurbishments Replace or Repair Every Component
Our complete refurbishments include a true, down to the frame rebuild. Every component will be inspected and replaced or repaired as needed. We do not take any short cuts. Our commitment to quality extends to every component on the apparatus.
Recommendations Upon Teardown
Certain areas on the apparatus can only be inspected when the truck is in a disassembled state. Once our EVTs are able to inspect these areas, your project manager will communicate any pertinent information and recommendations.
Innovation is Our Expertise
We take pride in creating innovative solutions to your problems. Our team has the capability to design highly customized configurations which meet your specific needs.
We are the Leading Refurbishment Company
Firetrucks Unlimited refurbishes more fire apparatus of varying makes than any other company. It has taken the combined efforts of our skilled staff and EVTs to create the largest full service refurbishment company. We are committed to providing the highest quality service and achieving 100% customer satisfaction.
Benefits of Refurbishment
Refurbishing your fire truck typically takes between 120 and 180 days. Buying a new truck can take up to two years.
Refurbishment typically costs 60% less than buying new. In some cases, our customers have been able to completely refurbish three fire trucks instead of buying one new.
Adds 10+ Years of Service
You can expect your refurbished fire truck to give you at least another 10 years of service with regular maintenance. This is not just our opinion, the US government has been refurbishing vehicles for many years and their studies confirm this fact.
Supplements Your Purchasing Cycle
Refurbishment does not eliminate the need for buying new apparatus. By refurbishing your truck you are extending its life and therefore offsetting the need to purchase new ones. Many of our clients incorporate refurbishment into their purchasing cycle, which has a significant positive impact on their budgets. We also offer long term contracts which reduce your costs and help us to reserve your place in our production schedule.
Refurbishment reduces waste by keeping apparatus which can still provide many years of quality service on the road. Once we refurbish your apparatus it will look as good as new and have the latest technology newer trucks have.
How it Works
We determine your needs through an open dialogue to create an accurate evaluation of the project scope. We request you send us detailed photos to accurately communicate the condition and configuration of the apparatus. Once we determine that your truck is a candidate for refurbishment, we will travel to your department to perform an on-site pre-inspection.
We will provide an itemized proposal which allows you to tailor your refurbishment to meet your needs. Proposals are typically revised 2-3 times to arrive at a solution that meets your needs and stays within your budget.
Once your apparatus has been transported to our facilities, our EVTs will perform a complete inspection. We then thoroughly clean the apparatus and begin performing the work detailed in the project scope. Once the refurbishment is complete, your apparatus will be rigorously tested to ensure optimal performance and safety.
Final Inspection & Training
Your team will be flown in to Las Vegas to inspect your refurbished apparatus. We will walk you through the entire truck and explain what work was performed. We will demonstrate the full capabilities of the truck and provide training. Any questions or comments you have will be addressed at this time.
Once you are completely satisfied the truck will be delivered to your department. If requested, we offer on-site training for any new components we installed.
