Crew Orientation Service
Our Crew Orientation service significantly improves your readiness for a truck-based world journey.
Among the many other aspects of the long-term plan, Crew preparation & training is often the most underestimated and often forgotten part. While moving heaven and earth to obtain the ideal truck, there's often little to no focus on what the future journey means for the crew. After all, buying a Truck capable of venturing into remote regions at least requires the crew to be aware of what's ahead.
Go Hard or Go Home
It's not uncommon that (a part of) the crew is unsure of what to expect from a truck-based world journey. This even up to doubting their participation due to many unaddressed concerns.
Overland or Expedition travel is nowhere close to a holiday. Sometimes you'll find yourself (far) out of your comfort zone in many ways. A - Go Hard or Go Home - attitude is occasionally required to get through difficult parts of the journey. Sticking together as a team is essential throughout the journey. Above all, the mutual perception about the journey route creates the team's commitment to the long-term plan. With this, one can work on preparing yourself and shaping your world journey.
Truck or Travel Project?
The envisioned journey sets the minimum vehicle requirements and budget. A common sign of being less prepared is stacking up the technical specifications for the future truck way too high.
Also, a pure, unrelenting fascination for truck technology can drive an unfeasible long list of truck requirements. With the apparent result, this ideal truck doesn't exist in the pre-owned market for a given budget. At the same time, the other part of the crew wants to travel and isn't that much interested in finally obtaining the perfect Expedition Grade outfit. This combination may lead to a journey being pushed way too far in the future up to even risking the project's cancelation in the end.
On the spot – the ideal truck
Visiting several pre-owned trucks often starts already in the crew orientation stage. After all, this supports a shared sense of size, features, and capabilities. However, to (suddenly) find yourself on the spot to participate in a significant investment decision without addressing the above is far from ideal. Dragging your feet is a clear sign of a reluctant and unprepared crew. At the same time, the seller starts wondering why it takes so long to reach that purchase decision. After all, the viewing appointment went so well. The truck seemed to fit the expectations so perfectly.
Expedition Truck Brokers supports future truck travelers in their Crew preparation phase in many ways.
