What to Look for In a Custom Truck Fabrication Shop

What to Look for In a Custom Truck Fabrication Shop

Not all your truck upgrades can be off the shelf. Sometimes you need specialty work outside of standard use, such as uplifting the truck with a different body for new jobs or creating a specific kind of trailer. When you need special upgrades to your truck, that means going to a custom truck fabrication shop.

Custom fabrication work isn’t easy, and you need to know you can trust the shop to do it right.  Here are some of the signs of a quality custom fabrication service.

Five Things You Want from Your Custom Truck Fabrication Shop

1 – Years of service

You don’t want to trust your truck to newcomers, no matter how earnest they might be.  It’s just not worth the risk. Choose a fabrication shop that has years or decades of experience, to ensure they can do the job right.

2 – An attention to detail in design

You don’t want your truck to look like a hacked-up beater, no matter how much custom work has been done. A great custom fabrication shop doesn’t just do the work requested; they have a real attention to detail and make their work look like it was part of the truck all along.

3 – A wide range of equipment

Does your fabrication shop have a plasma cutting table? What about a press break, automated shears, or large metalworking saws? They should have a very well-stocked shop. Otherwise, they may not be able to do your work or will farm it out to third parties that you have no control over.

4 – User-friendliness

If you’re adding functionality to your truck, the controls and methods of usage are just as important as the parts being added. Talk to them at length about how their upgrades will be operated, to make sure it’s easy and convenient.

5 – Priority scheduling options

Trucks are working vehicles, and downtime is money wasted. Do they offer options for priority scheduling, or emergency work? Sure, it may cost a bit more, but sometimes the cost is worth the faster service.

What to Expect from a Custom Fabrication Expert

What to Expect from a Custom Fabrication Expert

Fabrication services may be required for several reasons. Some requirements are for specialty structures like racks or doors. Some fabrication is done to repair your truck or trailer after an accident. Whatever the need, it is important to find a fabrication expert that understands precisely what you are looking for and transforms that understanding into reality.

When looking for custom fabrication services, here are some important aspects that should be considered from a professional.

Quality Workmanship

Precision and quality are essential for any fabrication service. Upfitting jobs should include everything from the metalwork to the fit and finish. All fabrication should look clean, professional, and as if it were part of the original design.

Scheduling

Fabrication is going to require downtime. Truck downtime can be expensive. How quickly can your fabrication specialist get you scheduled and how quick is the turnaround. More importantly, how well is the project communicated to you, so you schedule around the lack of truck and be assured of its completion.

Upfitting Experience

If you are spending money to upfit a truck, knowing the level of experience of the fabrication shop is important. How long as the shop been in business? Are they experienced in the type of custom work you are commissioning them to perform?

Customer Service & Communication

As with any business service, the custom fabrication shop needs to listen well, offer a professional recommendation, and provide good communication before, during, and at completion. Any specialty item can vary greatly in how it is implemented. Communication is key to setting your expectations and delivering to them or beyond.

Keeping Businesses on the Move

Keeping Businesses on the Move

As we are all aware, 2020 was a tumultuous year…one that most of us would rather not repeat. Many businesses have been hit hard by the effects of the pandemic and some are struggling just to stay afloat.

At C&M Motors, we are looking at ways to help our local businesses with their transportation needs but in a creative and less costly ways. For many, it is imperative to have transport trucks to move goods to market, but the cost of a new truck may not be possible right now.

With that concern in mind, we have increased our inventory of quality, newer used trucks and are outfitting them for customers so they can continue to provide their services without the burden of a new truck loan or lease. All our trucks are inspected by trained technicians, made road-worthy and are backed by our maintenance team. Many are eligible for an extended warranty through the manufacturer, Hino.

Used Trucks Customized to Your Needs

Our used inventory is largely comprised of medium duty trucks which we can configure with racks, lifts, and other customizations to meet your transportation needs. If you need something special, whether it is a particular size truck body or special shelving inside your box truck for organization, we can make that happen.

We are hopeful with the vaccination process beginning, we will see the end of the pandemic soon. We are working hard to bring you creative solutions to bridge the gap until we resume normal business activities.

We wish you a safe and prosperous 2021 and encourage you to contact us for any of your trucking needs.
