FLEETS OWNERS & OWNER/OPERATORS:

The biggest brands in the industry partner with Idle Smart

With APUs, engine parts break without warning. Wrecking your margins. Your schedule. And your peace of mind.      

Unexpected repairs

APUs need frequent breaks you can’t afford. Because when your trucks aren’t on the road, you aren’t making revenue. At all. 

Dreaded downtime

Sky-high fuel prices put more of your money in the pump. Not in your pocket. 

Out of control idle costs

Staying profitable isn’t just part of your job. It’s your livelihood on the line.

If you’re an owner-operator…

Drivers and technicians are hard to find so you need to keep them happy to make sure they stick around.

Too few drivers and techs

When one of your engines inevitably breaks down, the spare parts you need are stuck in Newark. Hello days of downtime.

Spare parts shortages

Paying more at the pump for every truck in your fleet makes idle costs unmanageable.

Sky-high diesel prices

It’s never been tougher to turn a profit than it is today.

If you’re a fleet operator…

Every hour of downtime + all the $$$ on fuel = a massive dent in your bottom line

Fleet Owner

I really liked the Idle Smart unit. It tells you everything you need to know easily, and it’s so compact and small. It’s just super simple to use.”

“Easy to use, and so compact.”

David R.

Owner Operator,
Leased to Swift Transportation

I installed Idle Smart 3 months ago. From what I’ve seen so far, it will provide fuel savings, especially in the summer and winter months. And it will pay for itself compared to the much higher cost and maintenance of an APU.

“Big savings – especially in the summer and winter”

Chris S.

Owner Operator

First, it's maybe 3 lbs and not 400-500 lbs. You don’t need a frame rail to mount it. And it takes hours to install, not “leave your truck here and it will be ready in 3 days. Coolness in the summer heat, warmth on those chilly nights — Idle Smart does it all at a fraction of the cost of an APU.”

“It took 4 hours to install, not 3 days.”

So you’ll never get stuck out in the sticks with a faulty system.
