Truck Refurbishment and Remounts
Give Your Mechanics & Lube Trucks New Life!
We believe that the equipment we sell to our customers is the best equipment in the industry, and as such we align ourselves with products that can stand the test of time and the rigors of the job sites they encounter. Every day, we see trucks we put into service years ago still heading to jobs in the Chattanooga area and beyond. IMT equipment, for example, can outlive multiple chassis when properly maintained, and we see examples of that every day.
We know that the work trucks we build take a beating, and while sometimes a truck can look pretty rough, the underlying equipment can still be in great shape. One of the services we offer our customers is the full refurbishment of their existing equipment. We evaluate each customer's equipment on a case-by-case basis and see what it takes to get it looking and functioning like new. In most cases, we can do it, and we love taking older equipment and making it look and perform like new again.

Custom Truck Refurbishment
Utilizing our in-house paint and Line-X capabilities, our expert parts department, and our talented refurb technicians, we can take old bodies and cranes and bring them back to life, often for far less than the cost of new equipment. We normally apply Line-X to the bed and the workbench on the body, but we've also applied it to the front of the body to protect it from rock damage. We also provide a full-service paint job, to protect the body from the weather and give it a clean new look. We can remount the refurbished equipment on a customer-provided chassis or help them source a new one. In each case, our truck refurbishment team spends extensive time evaluating each job and expectations are clearly laid out to each customer, so there are no surprises. One of the benefits of working with Nichol's Fleet is you're able to utilize our entire suite of custom manufacturing experience. We add custom options to almost every truck we produce. It may be an over-cab tire rack, a locking ladder storage solution, Miller Enpak engines, light-bar options, and many more. We can develop custom solutions unique to your specific job site or industry.
If you would like to breathe some new life into your older equipment, contact us and let us discuss refurb options with you.

"I've ran equipment for 14yrs & there is nothing better than a good service trucks" - David
"They have offered us customized solutions to improve our technician safety and productivity. NFE has rebuilt existing bodies for us when we were not ready to retire them. NFE is always available if we have questions or need parts, regardless of the brand of body." - Jim
"The IMT articulating crane I purchased here was one of the best pieces of equipment I have ever gotten. I was very hesitant to make the investment as a small business owner but this crane has already paid dividends in my business. Coupled with the amazing customer service I received. You really can't go wrong getting a crane from Nichol's." - Daniel
"NFE was able to supply me a cab/chassis and crane body within a week of wrecking one. I had the pleasure of touring the NFE facility. Everyone there is very eager to help, and I know if I ever have a question I can call the folks at NFE" - James
