How to reach more local fleets and field service fleets
I noticed a common audience that nearly everyone selling to “van and pickup truck” field service fleets wants to reach.
“Plumbers, HVAC, electricians.” The trades vary, but plumbers are nearly always mentioned.
And yes, our industry analysis of small business fleets shows it’s a big market for Class 1 to 3 vehicles. So maybe it’s lucrative for many of you.
Or maybe, we’re all more “tuned in” to plumbers, when we’re thinking of field service and local fleets. Because if you’ve lived or worked anywhere with water and pipes – all of us! – a plumber has been called at some point. You know they have pickup trucks and vans.
But we are hearing concerns about over-saturation.
There are many other trades with field service fleets. If you start brainstorming, there are so many more possible prospects.

And finally, yes, many plumbers and HVAC!
They all had vans or pickups. A few box trucks and specialized work trucks. Also, SUVs and company cars for salespeople and company owners. We even once had a 60-foot boom lift delivered. It was towed by an equipment rental company truck and trailer.
You might think these were mostly one-man operations. That’s not true. Only a few were because we tend to call larger businesses. They are out there, especially if you serve fleets in a large metro area – we’re by Chicago – or you sell nationally. Most of these companies have many vehicles to serve residential as well as commercial customers. Some are local branches or franchises of national businesses.
