Northwest Grip operates out of a 3 ton Isuzu NPR HD Turbo diesel. 1500lb hide-away lift gate allows for easy access to the rear door/equipment. There are exterior lights for area illumination during night time wrap in/outs.
Our truck is inspected and serviced routinely to ensure optimum performance and reliability during your production. The truck box has a curb side access for quick retrieval of gear and ease of accessibility. We keep most of our lighting package with the truck so fixtures can be pulled on an “a la carte” basis or as a package price if production anticipates needing a lot of light. (Package lighting cuts the cost by about 40% of “a la carte” prices).
Truck rental cost: $300/day.
See lighting rates under “rentals.” 3 ton truck with our current Grip package is $275/day. There is no additional fee for straight mileage. Fuel costs however are in addition to grip package pricing and is billed at current NW diesel rates. (Roughly comes to $.40/mile). Fuel charges will be calculated by mileage from the time the truck leaves on rental day to the time it returns at the end of the rental period.
Our grip truck does not require drivers to hold a current CDL however the stipulation is that a NWG pre-approved driver must be hired upon entering into rental contract. We offer a driver/crew to go out with the truck. This way the money spent on the driver can be rolled into the labor cost for G&E.
