Running a pool company is tough when you don’t have the right transport. In this article, we’ll share some of the best types of vehicles available to you and why we specifically use them to transport cleaning materials to different clients. As a Phoenix Pool Service company, having the right transportation is important, you need a good combination of power and something that helps with fuel economy would be ideal.
Vehicles Phoenix Pool Service Recommends
At Phoenix Pool Service, we recommend using pick up trucks, you are carrying chemicals around so the last thing you need is to hop into a van with all those chemicals in the back.
GMC Sierra Hybrid – This vehicle is a V-8 hybrid with a 40% improvement on gas mileage and it’s the use of electric power under light loads and at a lower speed. For a pool service company, this truck could hold water-testing kits, skimmers and brushes, leaf rakes, a vast amount of chemicals required to clean out pools without the need for an additional trailer.
GMC Cayon – This vehicle has a crew cab, an amazing fuel economy performance at 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. It’s impressive 185 horsepower means it’s still a strong truck that’ll carry your utilities from client to client. Given the space capacity of the truck, it would have the capabilities to hold your water testing kits, chemicals, water filter systems, rakes, skimmers and brushes in it’s deep cargo bed.
2009 Chevy HHR with a trailer – It has 57 cubic feet within its interior cargo space, 1000 lbs of towing capacity which is a perfect fit for someone looking for a pool maintenance vehicle, like Phoenix Pool Service. As this truck has interior cargo space you would have the capacity to keep your tools such as brushes, skimmers and rakes in the interior. This keeps the water testing kits and filter systems for the cargo bed, allowing you even more space for any trash bags you may need to haul from client to landfill or recycling sites.
Ford F-150 – Another good pool maintenance vehicle to consider is Ford F-150, the first 2 feet of the 8-foot box has a lockable compartment for storage, which is perfect for securing tools. This means your skimmers, brushes, rakes and smaller chemicals can be kept locked away. You could also keep your pool service software (used to manage scheduling, client information and billing) locked in a safe compartment. It frees up even more space for the brushes, rakes, skimmers, water testing kits, and chemicals required to operate a successful pool service company (like Phoenix Pool Service Company) in the cargo bed which is equally as spacious.
Whatever vehicle you choose, it’s important to remember you need something with enough horsepower to handle the equipment you’ll have packed up when traveling on sometimes difficult terrain (off-road/highways) and a vehicle that will not only be reliable with long distances but isn’t heavy on fuel consumption and is economical. There are so many benefits to using a pick-up truck for your pool cleaning business, like the vehicles Phoenix Pool Service Company recommends.
