Used Bucket Trucks are Critical in Maintaining Utility Infrastructure

The electric utility industry in the United States, including electric utility transmission and electric utility distribution, requires continual infrastructure maintenance and construction due to its age, due to increasing demand for power, and due to extreme weather conditions. Used bucket trucks are critical in this process.

The majority of electric utility infrastructure in the United States and other industrialized countries was originally constructed 60 to 80 years ago, and is outdated. Due to increasing demand for power each year, this outdated grid cannot safely and reliably handle the load without significant upgrades. In addition to planned upgrades, existing infrastructure is often partially destroyed due to extreme weather and natural disasters.

Construction and maintenance of utility infrastructure requires the use of bucket trucks, which consist of a hydraulic lifting system known as an aerial device, mounted onto a truck, van, or tracked carrier.  Many large utility organizations use their own teams and new bucket trucks for standard maintenance. However, the construction and rebuilding of infrastructure is typically done by utility construction contractors, many of whom prefer to buy or lease used bucket trucks.

These contractors rely heavily on reputable used bucket truck suppliers, which sell and rent bucket trucks nationwide, because they recognize that new equipment is not necessarily their most profitable option. However, reputable utility construction contractors never compromise on safety and reliability, so traditional used equipment is often not suitable. OEM used equipment divisions won’t even change the truck’s tires, much less thoroughly inspect and service the vehicle.

The fastest growing and most reliable contractors in the U.S. rely on Utility Fleet Sales, as the premier supplier of the highest quality used bucket trucks available. Utility Fleet offers something different than other suppliers; a remanufactured product that is completely inspected, repaired, and made ready-to-work. Utility Fleet completely reconditions the aerial device, the service body, and the truck or tracked carrier.  The quality of its products and services, combined with the knowledge and professionalism of its Account Managers, has earned Utility Fleet the highest customer satisfaction in the industry.
