Our Coronavirus Safety Plan for Team Members and Customers

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to spread, we want our Turbo Sales & Leasing customers to know that we are taking a practical and common sense approach to protect our team members and customers, while keeping your operations going.

In early March, as the coronavirus threat was increasing, we implemented a safety protocol for our team members and took additional steps as a company to reduce the risk for customers.

We are heeding the advice suggested by public health leaders, including washing our hands regularly, sanitizing our work areas, restricting all visitors at our offices and suspending all travel.

We are encouraging self-temperature screening and stressing that our team members not come to work with a fever. They are required to stay home if they have any flu-like symptoms.

With all that said, we want Turbo Sales & Leasing customers to know we are still doing our job of leasing yard dogs and trailers. Our software technology, which underwent a major upgrade last year, now allows us to work from home as needed. This will allow us to continue our 24-hour, seven-day-a-week support services. Our customers can always reach us through our main number at 678-450-7800.

TICO Edge Keeps Customers Up on Maintenance and Repair

TICO Edge is a cloud-based platform that allows the manufacturer’s dealer network, customers and the TICO Uptime Center to communicate and collaborate with real-time visibility into individual repairs.

With TICO Edge, service and repair processes are better streamlined because everyone involved in the repair is constantly in the loop.

“It helps them monitor and mitigate down time within the fleet and also helps control cost,” said Chris Smith, Turbo’s Vice President of Dealer Operations and General Manager. “It is a great tool for the dealers and fleet customers alike.  And a fleet can use this platform to manage all their assets – not just Tico products.”

TICO recently named Turbo to its Founders Circle. The award is based on the volume of sales of TICO terminal tractors and honors top dealers of TICO tractors. Turbo Sales & Leasing is the nation’s largest TICO dealer.

When a terminal tractor goes down, the productivity of freight and manufacturing operations suffers. TICO Edge breaks the chain of inefficiencies in an outdated service process, and customers benefit from enhanced uptime.

Turbo Sales & Leasing was recently named to the TICO Founders Circle.

TICO has partnered with Decisiv to create the first service platform with a telematics integration for a terminal tractor manufacturer. TICO Edge will now be offered as standard on all new TICO models. The platform uses meter and fault data through the integration of Edge Connected Diagnostics telematics.

TICO Edge supports TICO’s connected vehicle strategy and their focus on elevating the service experience for dealers and customers through streamlined communication when a terminal tractor is being serviced.

Don’t Forget: Turbo Also Leases Large Inventory of Trailers

 

While we’re best known for our leasing programs and large inventory of workhorse terminal tractors, keep in mind that we also lease a large assortment of trailers.

Similar to our terminal tractor fleets, Turbo offers long-term and short-term leases on all major brands of trailers for both dry vans and refrigerated trailers.

Our trailers, which are well-maintained and average under five years in age, are available for lease nationwide.
