Purchasing a New Fire Truck
For organizations of all kinds, purchasing a new fire apparatus can be a daunting task. Municipalities especially have a unique set of challenges to meet in today’s tough economic climate. We understand this is not an easy process, which is why we work one-on-one with you, or your entire committee, to educate you and assist you in making the right decision for your community.
At Bulldog, our sales representatives are well-versed on Ferrara’s complete line of fire trucks. They attend Ferrara’s training, their annual sales meeting and supplemental webinars to stay up-to-date on the latest from the manufacturer. They also keep up on industry trends and changes to help enlighten you on what other departments are doing around the country.
What to Expect When Working with Bulldog
Each new vehicle begins with a detailed process to uncover your wants and needs. After our initial meeting, we get Ferrara involved to help draft up the drawings and specifications of your vehicle. We work with you to customize each aspect of your unit, ensuring you have the basics covered and the additional features you desire. If you’re going out to bid, we will also put together a detailed proposal with a bottom line number to aid you in the process.
Once you’ve chosen to work with Bulldog and Ferrara, we will setup a pre-construction meeting. Here, you will converse with us and your Ferrara project engineer. Your Ferrara engineer specializes in the type of fire truck you choose, to lend additional expertise to your build. We cover every paragraph of the specifications in detail and discuss any changes you’d like made. We want you to understand exactly what you’re getting before the fire truck goes into production.
There is a standard 360 day build time for a Ferrara fire truck. After 90 days, we do a mid-point inspection to go through the truck and note any issues that cropped up or changes that need to be made. 30-60 days after the mid-point inspection, we do another, similar inspection. Prior to delivery, your unit will complete a final inspection checklist to make sure it meets all of the requirements. We will also inspect it upon arrival at our shop in Woodville, MA. All of these inspections are done to meet your highest expectations upon delivery. At Ferrara and at Bulldog, there is a strong commitment to our customer; we want you to be satisfied with your experience.
Ongoing Support Through Service
Our customers often tell us that the thing they like most about working with Bulldog is we truly are a one-stop-shop. While getting your new fire truck is the exciting part, considering how you will service it long term should not be overlooked. If you have an issue with your unit, you deal with our friendly and knowledgeable service department.
We can cover all of your service needs including in-shop and on-site repair, preventative maintenance, custom fabrication, accident repair, body and paint work, refurbishments, remounts, equipment mounting, aerial and pump testing, antique restoration and graphics.
