Freightliner Sprinter

Boone P. of Charlotte, North Carolina was initially wary of purchasing a Freightliner Sprinter van. As the owner of a successful delivery service, he was looking to upgrade his delivery trucks, hopefully to save money without loosing overall efficiency. His business had consisted mostly of smaller deliveries for local businesses, but Boone dreamed of expanding into larger deliveries that his small delivery cans just couldn’t handle.

Over the previous five years, his service had tried a number of different cargo vans and trucks. While some vans and trucks offered the room he needed for larger packages, his drivers reported that the van’s lacked the maneuverability and smoothness to keep the packages from shifting in transport. Others offered smoother rides, but required more trips back and forth from the shop, which meant more fuel and fewer deliveries per day. He thought a van would be perfect for his larger deliveries, but questioned how a large van would handle the delicate, sensitive deliveries. That’s when one of his friend’s suggested he check out the Freightliner Sprinter van.

A quick peek in the Freightliner Sprinter’s interior was all it took for Boone to see how much space he was getting for his dollar. The large, open cargo area of the Freightliner Sprinter meant less trips back and forth from the office. Where Boone could previously only manage lighter loads limited to less than 2000 lbs., the Freightliner Sprinter would let his business take on much heavier loads. And still only a few feet in width, the Freightliner Sprinter would allow Boone to open up his delivery business to larger, single packages while still being able to manage the typical smaller deliveries. His customers would appreciate the speed with which their packages would be delivered, while Boone could rest easy knowing that he was saving money at the end of the day.

When you spend so many hours a day on the road, comfort becomes a factor. Fortunately for Boone, bumps in the road disappear under the Freightliner Sprinter’s steady, narrow frame and revolutionary weight distribution system. Boone is able to take hard turns in all weather conditions without worrying about the road or its effect on his cargo. Furthermore, the cab is surprisingly spacious as well, giving Boone enough room to comfortably operate his business from the road.

As part of an incentive program, Boone chooses not to charge an extra fuel surcharge for most deliveries. To make up for this lost income, Boone selected the Freightliner Sprinter for it’s fuel efficient diesel engine. Not only would he would he save money with fewer trips back to the shop, but he could be confident that his trucks would get significantly more miles to the gallon than other diesel driven vans and trucks. No matter the load size, Boone knows that the engines in his delivery vans are not wasting one drop of fuel. This, coupled with affordable pricing offered by his local Freightliner Sprinter dealer, meant Freightliner Sprinter was the right decision for Boone’s bottom line.
