Fleet Maintenance

Taking care of your truck is our number one mission. When a truck receives a complete service each vehicle goes through a full 72 point inspection, Aerials will receive a 254 point inspection. In addition to the inspection, a full service includes: oil and filters, auto lube and grease. Following the inspection our technician will sit down and go over all noted deficiencies found during the inspection along with associated repair costs.

Mobile Repairs and Service

Our Mobile service takes us all across the Southeast performing fleet maintenance, pump testing, and warranty repairs for manufacturers. Regardless of your location across the Southeast it is possible to enter into a fleet maintenance contract. We recommend Counties and Fire Districts join together for reduced pricing. We will travel to your area and service your entire fleet or County at one time.

Pump Testing

Palmetto Fire Apparatus realized early on the necessity for a full pump testing facility.We have installed a 14,000 gallon in ground drafting tank. The design allows drafting from either one or two sides simultaneously. Having the ability to draft with two hard suctions allows us to test 1750 and 2000 GPM pumps.

Contract Maintenance

Palmetto Fire Apparatus provides fleet maintenance services to customers under annual contracts across the Southeast.  In many cases, Palmetto Fire Apparatus has replaced the need for the expense and administrative headache of overseeing a separate internal maintenance facility.  Customers with as few as 3-4 vehicles and as many as 40+ have realised the savings and quality service that Palmetto Fire Apparatus provides.  Maintenance can be performed either in our Ridgeland, SC facility or in your own stations, reducing your vehicle downtime.

We perform work that meets or exceeds the specifications of most manufacturer’s warranties. Palmetto Fire Apparatus has provided warranty repairs and service for nearly every major manufacturer of fire apparatus and pumps.
