Seasonal Equipment Experience
The transition to a different season always brings the unexpected, such as hurricanes, damaging storms, floods, tornados, etc. We realize these situations can occur at any time therefore we will be prepared to ensure that the customer has the seasonal equipment available to meet its demands. For more than 17 years, we have been preparing specialized equipment, such as snow fighting, leaf collection, grounds keeping, standby generators, and beachcombing units, so our customers are ready for their seasonal demands.

Among the hybrid fleets we manage and maintain are – half electric/half diesel-fueled vehicles and vehicles fueled by ethanol, CNG, LNG, Propane, and biodiesel products.
Emergency Support Experience
We mobilize the maintenance facility and provide repair and maintenance services for the duration of emergency situations. We will provide appropriate staffing levels to ensure continuous vehicle operational levels as determined by the customer up to our maximum staffing levels. We understand emergency circumstances may occur outside of normal hours of operation and may involve any number of employees, equipment and vehicles. VFM’s costs incurred during emergency situations that occur outside of normal hours of operation are not included in our Target Costs. Approved costs incurred will be billed to the customer at our proposed Hourly Rate.

This plan will include staffing commitments, response times and a chain of contact. In addition to local, on-site personnel the managers from our other facilities will be part of the plan, if necessary.
