One of the first and most obvious morning signs to look for when looking for a utility contractor Tulsa is the companies state of the equipment and vehicles. If their equipment appears to be old and ran down their vehicles do not look roadworthy and the majority of their fleet looks like it is old enough to be antique, the chances are that Equipment is not going to be reliable. Reliable equipment can make the difference between a successful project and a project that goes longer than anticipated. Equipment vehicle trailer and fleet breakdowns are a huge productivity killer on the job site. If your subcontractor canÕt make it to the job site due to faulty trucks or trailers he or she almost certainly is not going to get the job done on time. At the very least that company will not be someone that you can rely on to consistently show up as promised at the time promised and deliver quality service. GableÕs Exc. Inc. or GEI Utility construction as we Collett today is the utility contractor with a proven track record of nearly 40 years. All of GEI Utility ConstructionÕs equipment is late-model lower our equipment that is always dependable and reliable. Moreover, for every piece of equipment that GableÕs Exc. Inc. or GEI Utility Construction puts into the field there is at least one back up piece of equipment ready should there be any issues. That means if we have three backhoes out Excavating on any given day we have one late-model lower our backhoe at our office ready to be mobilized should a problem occur.

If those vehicles are not running and are not dependable or maybe they are not roadworthy you are going to have a very hard time relying on your contractor Tulsa to show up on time as promised consistently. From breakdowns to blowouts to catastrophic failures to DOT stops, and unreliable fleet sooner or later is going to leave you and your job site delayed due to a utility contractor Tulsa not showing up on time in his schedule. Sooner or later your utility contractor Tulsa antique trailer is going to leave them stranded on the road side on the way to your project.

Most people do not realize that every time a heavy truck gets on the roadway there should be a pre-trip inspection. This pre-trip inspection includes dozens if not hundreds of mechanical operational and safety checks that should be done every day before that vehicle hits the road. It is the responsibility of all class a CDL drivers and the companies which they work for to ensure pre-trip walkaround are happening on a regular daily basis to ensure the safe operation of their fleet. Pre-trip inspections if done properly and consistently would catch 99% of the issues that unreliable subcontractors and utility contractor experience on the way to your project. However because most of their fleet trucks trailers and equipment are antique they probably do not want to do pre-trip inspection because should I do a pre-trip inspection none of their fleet whatever be roadworthy.
