It’s vital that the organizations that protect and serve the public have the most up-to-date, safest equipment in their fleets. However, making sure that each and every vehicle is outfitted with the best, most suitable products for your fleet’s needs can be an overwhelming drain on your time and resources. One solution to this issue is pre-designed packages that perfectly coordinate compatible, complementary products to improve your vehicle safety and on-the-job performance.

Coordination, Convenience, and Cost Effectiveness 

Although occasionally your fleet vehicles need unique, customized upfits, many times you will have standard upfitting needs for your entire fleet. Some experienced vehicle upfitters offer coordinated upfit packages that bundle together products that are tested and selected to work together seamlessly. This keeps you safer and reduces installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and labor costs.

In addition to ensuring that all the products work well together, these packages have are many other benefits, including potentially significant cost savings over purchasing products separately as well as streamlining the ordering process (reducing overhead and potential additional costs). Plus, ordering a pre-packaged upfit combination ensures that all components are shipped together and available for installation on your terms. Having your entire upfit package arrive on one single pallet allows your install team to stay organized and stay on schedule.

Upfit Packages that Fit Your Needs

Vehicle upfitting companies can offer many different packages that are pre-tailored to specific industries and vehicle types.

For example, if you are a police department interested in purchasing new fleet vehicles, you may be considering police interceptor SUVs. Purchasing an upfit package that includes everything you need to get them up and running quickly and safely can make the difference between coming in under budget or having to make cuts to your wish list. A fully-loaded upfit package for a police interceptor, for example, may include a siren light controller, siren speaker, lightbar, taillights and other exterior lighting, equipment console, weapons mounts, partition cages, and push bumper—all chosen to work together perfectly and install efficiently.

You can get your fleet on the road faster—and within your budget—by choosing an upfit package that has everything you need at the price you want.

Look for a State Contract-Approved Upfitter

Another way to take advantage of discounted pricing is to contract with a vehicle upfitter that is already approved by your state. State contracts allow you to take advantage of highly discounted prices for mobile computing and video products without the need to write an RFP or go through a tedious bidding process. Purchasing upfit packages from a state-approved vehicle upfitter enables you to enjoy the benefits of volume discounts, package discounts, and pre-approval discounts. These combined discounts can save your organization significant time and money, allowing you to get back to doing what matters: protecting your community.
