BLOG: The Convenience of a Shipping Container

We learn early in our adult lives that proper auto maintenance begins with preventative care. We check our tires regularly. We change our oil on time, as well as other engine fluids. We check our battery and electrical system. We understand the purpose, which is 3-fold:

  1. Convenience — ensuring our car continues to operate properly
  2. Investment — protecting what we’ve already spent on that vehicle
  3. Future — averting significant expenses that may arise tomorrow

In this example, we want our car to function so we can take care of our needs today — so the money we’ve spent so far is not wasted — and to avoid a catastrophic breakdown that will not only cost us MORE money, but disrupt everything else in our lives.

The equipment in your production line follows this same thinking, especially your Positive Displacement (PD) pumps. You can apply the same 1-2-3 process.

It’s easy to understand #2 and #3. You’ve already invested in your production line, and you clearly want to avoid the losses associated when your line goes down. Servicing or re-building your PD pumps in a timely manner (at least once a year, depending on usage) can save you big money in the long run.

What about #1? What about the convenience factor? Here’s a simple way to look at it — have your PD pump pulled and serviced on your own terms by not waiting until your line is down. When the service is quick and cost-effective (with guaranteed 95% capacity), your convenience factor is much better. When you can also transport your equipment to-and-from the Certified Service and Repair Center in a Harvill Industries supplied heavy-duty shipping container, then there’s almost nothing standing in the way of performing that important preventative care on your equipment.

It’s almost like the Pump mechanic coming to you when your production line needs some attention. Contact Harvill Industries today for a customer shipping container that will make it even faster, easier and more cost effective to keep your production line running smoothly.
