Freightliner Sprinter: Knoxville Electrician Found the Work Van for Him

Mitchell A., a electrician based in Knoxville Tennessee, has worked hard all of his life to provide for his family. Just as business was taking off, Mitchell was filled with pride when his son Jeremiah decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a electrician. Over the years, father and son built a name for themselves by providing inexpensive, quality electrical repair and construction for both retail and commercial buildings. Now, as Mitchell nears a well-deserved retirement, he finds himself training the newest addition to the business; Lucas, his grandson and journeyman electrician.

The first thing Mitchell taught his grandson is the importance of efficiency. With only a few men on the crew, Mitchell needed to find ways to get ahead, making sure that there would always be work for he and his son. Today, he knows that his loyal customers have come to expect quality service, and he wants to guarantee that these customers would stay just as loyal when his son and grandson take over the business. Not wanting to cut back on their materials or services, Mitchell is teaching them to save money in other ways. When it came time to buy their newest company cargo van, father and son decided this was the area to invest wisely in. With one smart purchase, they saw an opportunity to save money in the long term while increasing their business volume at the same time, a good lesson for Lucas. That’s why they decided to go with the Freightliner Sprinter van.

Beyond the day to day uses, Mitchell and his partners have found that the Freightliner Sprinter van also gives them the space they needs for those once in a while, big cargo jobs. On expensive remodels, the job might call for specialty light fixtures or heavy duty fuse boxes. This family of electricians used to have to contract out to delivery services in order to get supplies to the job site, costing both themselves and their clients money. Now they can get what they need, where they need it, on their own terms.

Under the hood, the Freightliner Sprinter’s powerful diesel engine gives the van great acceleration and strength for such a spacious vehicle. The van’s narrow frame meant that they could handle tight curves no matter the quality of the road, ensuring their safety and speedy service. Due to the Sprinter’s innovative exterior design and fuel efficient engine, this family has found that this added power does not translate into higher fuel bills.

Furthermore, with the Freightliner Sprinter name backing the van, both Mitchell and his family know they need not worry about frequent breakdowns or repairs. With Lucas’ boundless enthusiasm fueling them, the family old timers have found themselves willing to take on those late night emergency jobs more and more. Fortunately, even Mitchell’s weary bones can make it to the job easier, knowing that his Freightliner will be able to get up and go no matter the time or weather.

Sealing the deal for Mitchell was the cargo van’s price. Factoring in all the money they would save in gas bills and fewer cargo trips, they soon calculated that they could save thousands of dollars each month with the Freightliner Sprinter versus a conventional sized truck.

With retirement less than five months off, Mitchell feels more than comfortable handing off the reigns to his son and grandson. They have learned all they can from him, with many years of new lessons laid out before them. Luckily, Mitchell can have a peaceful retirement, knowing that the Freightliner Sprinter will be there to keep the business trucking along no matter what may come.
