What is Fire Truck Refurbishment?
Fire truck refurbishment is the process of repairing, upgrading and refinishing used fire trucks. We offer various fire truck refurbishment options including complete overhauls, technology & safety upgrades, engine/transmission rebuilds, re-purposing chassis, body work and paint & graphics. Complete overhauls include overall inspection, steam cleaning of all components, dis-assembly, component inspection, repairing or replacing components with new, re-assembly, paint & graphics and quality testing.
Save Money: Fire truck refurbishment typically costs 60% less than buying new and extends the life of the apparatus 8-15 years.
Save Time: We can refurbish your fire truck in 90-120 days, purchasing a new apparatus can take up to 2 years.
