Wet and wild Florida has a lot of pools, which means they all need pool maintenance. Whether it's wrangling alligators out of the hot tub-true story-checking pH levels, or removing garbage and leaves, there's plenty for you to do. Don't let transportation be the problem. Gator Ford in Tampa has solutions to your pool service truck needs.
Whether it's just you or an entire crew, Gator Ford can outfit you with one pickup truck or twenty, or maybe something bigger altogether. After the Ford F-150, we're in Super Duty territory, for bigger, brawnier work. The Ford F-250 and above are built for big jobs and dirty work. We'll focus on the F-series Super Duty trucks in this article and few other enticing options for you pool servicers out there.
Ford Super Duty Trucks
Even at this level, you've got options: F-250, F-350, and F-450. It's like large, larger, and extra grande. (The F-series goes up from there and Gator Ford can get you a used or new F-550 and above as well.) These models are titans in the automaker industry, and for good reason. It's the only truck that offers a customer-placed trailer camera, remote tailgate lock, collapsible underseat storage, and tailgate step. Super Duty trucks offer best-in-class towing, payload capacity, diesel horsepower and torque, and gas-powered torque. That's a lot of accolades heaped on one truck series. But let's dive into the nitty-gritty to see just how a Ford truck might serve your pool service.
With your small business, you'll almost certainly want to tow a utility trailer. With a Ford truck, you can set up a trailer camera by yourself so you can see behind you in a safer way. The blind spot monitoring includes the trailer, and trailer sway control helps you handle all that weight. Even the F-250 can tow up to 15,000 pounds of equipment, when properly configured, more than enough for your water pumps and other pool tools. If that's not enough, the other Super Duty trucks pull even more weight. Up to 21,000 pounds in the F-450.
Your equipment goes in the box in back and Ford has prepared some nice features to help you organize and protect your equipment. Just because pools are wet doesn't mean you want to keep your pool equipment in the rain. Grab the tonneau cover to protect the contents of your truck. Built-in toolboxes are a great help for keeping wrenches and nuts and bolts in their place. The truck bed is 6.8 feet long, easily accessible with a tailgate step. Inside, the 60/40-split fold-up rear seat bottoms transform the cabin into a secondary cargo zone.
Of course, there are other great vehicles out there that will do the trick. A cargo van like the Ford Transit, especially one upfitted as to carry all your pool skimmers, pumps, and more. If you need something bigger, there's also the E-series cutaway chassis that can be upfitted as a utility wagon. No matter your needs, there's something for you here.
