5 Pest Control Truck Customizations to Improve the Way You Work
How can pest control technicians complete more service calls in a day, making them more efficient and productive for their companies? With strong competition continually pushing prices down, it is critical that pest control companies reduce costs per service call. Reducing time at a job site allows companies to service more customers daily, reducing their costs over their competitors.
In addition, from crawling into tight spaces and balancing on roofs to encountering pests that sting and handling toxic chemicals, pest control technicians need to be ready for anything. And since they are constantly on the go, their work vehicle needs to be outfitted with all the tools and equipment they need for quick and easy access. Organizing and securely storing this equipment is critical in order to prevent dangerous chemical spills and work injuries from loading and unloading heavy tools.
Give your pest control vehicles an upgrade with Extendobed’s Pesticide Unit, a slideout bed extender made expressly for pest control technicians and the on-the-job challenges they face each day. Read on to find out five ways Extendobed’s Pesticide Unit can help your technicians save time, increase efficiency, and prevent injury while on the job site.
Our Extendobed Pesticide Unit includes space for one or more hose reels that can be bolted into the unit, and easily accessed by sliding out the extended bed. When you’re done, simply crank the hose reel to roll up the hose, slide the extension back in the truck, and you’re ready for your next service call. No heavy lifting, no messy or damaged equipment, and no backbreaking climbs in and out of the truck bed. Extendobed units save you and your company service time and work injury costs.
Include one, two, or more hose reels on the Extendobed Pesticide Unit. The great thing about our products is that they can be customized to fit your needs!
Hold ladders firmly in place — and at a place where you can easily access them — on your truck, and without bungee cords or ropes. The Extendobed Pesticide Unit comes equipped with a ladder rack that keeps ladders secure while driving, and easy to grab and go while on the job. The unit slides out of the truck bed with ease, and the ladder can be accessed without crawling into the truck bed or unloading it from the truck’s roof.
Saving time unloading and loading ladders from your work truck for each service call adds up! It could mean fitting in one, two, or even more service calls that day — a number that becomes even more significant when considering your monthly and yearly service goals.
Safely store and haul toxic chemicals in our Pesticide Unit with built-in chemical tanks. These tanks will keep chemicals safe from spills during transport and ensure that they are easily accessible when needed on the job site.
Properly securing potentially hazardous chemicals becomes even more vital when accidents occur. Our Extendobed Pesticide Unit includes space designed for chemical tanks to be bolted into the unit, which itself is made from heavy-duty steel, for added protection and secure storage that will prevent chemicals from spilling or flying out of the vehicle during an accident.
Even when having to brake suddenly or driving on bumpy roads, you can trust our Pesticide Unit to keep chemicals and equipment secure.
Locking Chemical Drawer
Control access to toxic chemicals with the Pesticide Unit’s locking chemical drawer. This locking drawer ensures that only pest technicians, and others who are certified to handle these chemicals, can gain access to chemicals while on the job site. Homeowners, children, and others on site will be protected from the dangers of chemical exposure, accidental or otherwise. This feature also helps protect technicians and the pest control company from lawsuits and liability.
Keep sprayers properly calibrated by installing a pressure regulator on your Pesticide Unit. This feature will let you control the flow of the pesticide spray, adjusting it to fit the application. Not only does it control pressure and keeps sprayers — and technicians — working efficiently, but the pressure regulator also protects pumps, seals, and other sprayer parts from damage caused by excess pressure, saving time on the job site as well as maintenance costs for parts.
With an over 100% bed extension that brings the entire bed out past the taillights, Extendobed’s Pesticide Unit makes it easy to find what you need when you need it, and without spending extra time (or breaking your back) loading and unloading equipment. From hoses and ladders to chemicals, everything has its own storage space for easy access and safe transport. And since the unit also improves safety while reducing time on the job, it allows more service calls per technician daily.
