What Our Clients Say

Good Afternoon Cindy,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner.  In responding to your last email, I couldn't have asked for better service or communication from everyone at NJEV.  Especially you, you were definitely on top of this. Whether it was good news or bad news communication was always the key factor for us.  Everyone is very happy with the truck to date and I am again confident in the service we will receive in the future.  Please extend my sincere appreciation to everyone involved in getting our issues rectified, including the sales staff who drove up to look at the truck.  It was truly appreciated!

Thank you again for everything!

Jonathan Krehel, Chief, Ramsey Fire Department
