For a busy OrkinTherm branch, a drop trailer full of OrkinThermPro can prove to be a real time and money saving option. For branches consistently installing an average of 300 bags or more of OrkinTherm per month, we recommend our drop trailer option. Adequate space is also required for a 53’ long trailer, so determining the dimensions of available parking is also part of the process. Assuming sales volume and sufficient space qualify your location, then there are a few administrative considerations.
Orders for full trailer loads such as these should be placed at least 5-7 days in advance of need, especially during the busy season. Also be aware that the healthy economy has caused trailer inventories to tighten considerably, and trucking companies are becoming concerned if a trailer sits for too long at any one location. Tires can go flat, DOT inspections and certifications can lapse, and the risk of wiring theft or vandalism increases. To discourage using trailers for long term storage, Pest Control Insulation has no choice but to push out higher rental charges for those that sit for extended periods.
Rental Pricing (Monthly)
PCI monitors all dropped trailers to ensure they are assigned to locations that can justify them in terms of volume. Those that have trailers that linger a bit too long will be contacted to discuss alternative options for product delivery and storage.
If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to contact our Insulation Customer Service Representative, Vicki Clark at (770) 766-6050 Ext. 1. Thank you for your cooperation during this very busy season.
