New fleets for APX Alarm and ADT: Which one is cooler?
OK, your dream car may not be a fleet vehicle, but say you’re a tech, which would you rather drive?
Here’s APX Alarm’s new fleet vehicle:
And here’s ADT’s new fleet vehicle:
APX just announced today that it’s launching a fleet of service vehicles this summer, 300 HHR GM vehicles. APX Alarm service technicians previously used personal vehicles. The press release says the vehicles will “increase national visibility and recognition, but will also add to the credibility of APX representatives.”
“With moving to a fleet, APX will now show up to the appointment in an APX branded vehicle, which should give the customer a sense of comfort,” said Guy Goddard, Service Auxiliary Manager, in a prepared statement.
They’re also a greener and more economical alternative, from the release:
The environmentally sound vehicles will also help APX regulate gas mileage from a previous average of 19-20 mpg with the use of personal vehicles to 28-30 miles per gallon with the standardized fleet – a projected savings of $1 million over the next three years for the company.
It must be a good time to refresh fleets, as ADT also recently announced—last month sometime amidst a few other announcements—that it would order 3,000 of these Ford Transit Connects.
Their new fleet is also good for the environment and ADT’s coffers. I saw that ADT expects to save approximately $5.3 million in annual fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions.
