If you choose not to do the hydraulic dump bed kit installation yourself, we have found two types of businesses that typically have the expertise required to install the Pierce hydraulic dump kit. Take a look at the options:

  • Body shop
  • Machine shop/welder

Wondering how to find a professional and reputable body or machine shop? The key is a little research. Below we have done a bit of the foot work for you. While the following criteria does not guarantee a positive experience it can help identify shops with experience and a history of good work.

Body Shop - Criteria

1. Certifications - Is the shop is certified by one or more of the following?

2. Insurance - Does the shop carry the following insurance?

  • Garage Liability
  • Garagekeepers

There are many resources for best practices when choosing the right body shop you can check out our favorites here: Angie's list "Advice on finding a reputable body auto body shop" and The ASE "How to choose the right body shop"

Machine Shop - Criteria

Unlike body shops machine shops and fabricators often specialize in many different areas of business from construction, to car and trailer body welders to artists. Find one in your area by following these guidelines:

1. Research - Google is your best bet when looking for a local welder or fabricator with experience. Search keywords along with your location to find one near you.
