Accidents happen; it's a fact of life. But, when they happen to your apparatus, you can be assured that Pierce will restore your vehicle to its original quality standards. And the turnaround time will be minimal, so your apparatus can be back in service as quickly as possible. 

Aerial Overhauls

Have your aerial device remounted on a new Pierce custom chassis with a completely new body. Or, we can refurbish and remount on your existing aerial body. Either way, you'll get superior performance for much less than a new aerial apparatus. Re-certification, service and testing are included. Complete aerial overhauls and NFPA updates are also available.


Upgrade and Modernize
Modifications and upgrades are available to comply with current NFPA standards, such as chevron striping, new LED warning lights, stainless steel plumbing upgrades, auxiliary braking devices and more. Modifications are available for all makes and models of apparatus.

Glider Kits
This is one of the quickest, most cost-effective ways to bring an older vehicle up to compliance with most current NFPA standards. Utilizing major components from your old apparatus - engine, transmission, pump and rear axle - we'll build a new custom vehicle around them with significant savings.
