Why is Legend NOT a Good Fit for Me?

Entering a partnership with any brand requires strategic alignment. The last thing you want is to waste money on a brand that fails to solve your company's problems. Similarly, no good brand wants an unsatisfied customer who doesn't find value in their products.

At Legend, our mission is to deliver exceptional value to our clients. Our products are specifically designed to meet the needs of a particular group of individuals and businesses. If you find that your needs and goals don’t quite align with this focus, Legend might not be able to serve you.

Here are some signs that Legend might not be a fit for you:

Your Van is for Leisure, Not Commercial Use

If your van is primarily used for leisure, such as a camper or lifestyle van, the robust protection our products offer may be unnecessary for you.

Legend’s products are meticulously crafted for durability and resilience, designed to endure the rigorous demands of commercial use. Additionally, our floors contain traces of fiberglass for improved durability and weight reduction, which can be irritating to the skin when used in a leisure setting. Leisure vehicles typically don't encounter the same level of wear and tear as commercial vans, making heavy-duty protection unnecessary.

Instead, you might benefit from products specifically designed for recreational use, ensuring you get the best value and functionality for your camper or lifestyle van.

Your Employees’ Safety Isn’t Your Top PrioritY

Safety investments have become increasingly important to many van and truck fleets across Canada and the U.S. These investments are not only about staying ahead of compliance requirements but also about ensuring the well-being of employees and the cargo they carry.

However, we understand that not all fleets prioritize these safety measures. For some fleets, immediate cost savings may take precedence over long-term investments in safety and vehicle maintenance.

In such cases, grippy flooring like Stabiligrip or vehicle access accessories won’t add as much value as they would to a company dedicated to long term safety.

You’RE NOT INTERESTED IN SAVING MONEY

It’s nice to make money. It’s painful to lose it.

For fleet owners, this translates to losing money when your van's interior deteriorates or when your employees quit or get injured. Some fleets might overlook the importance of saving money and opt for stock vans with basic protection.

At Legend, we believe that investing in customized accessories can significantly enhance the safety, efficiency, and overall well-being of your employees. Our premium high-quality linings, flooring solutions, motion lights and grab handles are designed with the end-user in mind, ensuring a safer and more ergonomic working environment. By providing tailored accessories, fit for every team’s unique needs, we help reduce fatigue and improve the daily work experience for your team, preventing turnover and injuries.

If you’re unwilling to upgrade past rudimentary equipment and you’re okay with missing out on key savings offered through van preservation and retaining employees, then Legend isn’t the right company for you.

You’re Not Worried About Your Van’s Residual Value

Buying a commercial van for work is a significant decision. Seeing it degrade and lose its value over the years can be very troublesome. Plus, it can be costly. If you’ve ever been involved in the used commercial van market, you know exactly which vans you wouldn’t buy. Cheap, degraded, stock floors & mats can nosedive your value into the ground.

Legend floors & liners help extend the life of your vans, reduce the frequency of repairs, and maintain higher resale values. For companies where this matters, or companies that are held to certain quality standards due to leasing requirements, interior protection can be very valuable.

You’re Not Concerned About Soundproofing

It can be painful to work in terribly noisy environments. Not only does excessive noise reduce focus and performance, but it also significantly increases fatigue and stress levels, creating a challenging work environment. When frontline employees are unable to work effectively, the entire company suffers from reduced productivity and morale.

Legend's interior linings, flooring solutions, and wheel well covers are designed to dampen sound, creating a quieter, more pleasant work environment. Wheel well covers are crafted from high-quality, durable materials that provide an extra layer of insulation around the wheel wells, effectively reducing road noise and vibrations.

These covers not only help in soundproofing but also protect the wheel wells from dirt, debris, and moisture, extending the lifespan of your vehicle.

If your business involves short trips or if noise levels are not a major concern for your drivers, investing in advanced noise-reducing features, including wheel well covers, may not be a top priority. In such cases, some fleets may choose to focus more on other operational efficiencies and cost-saving measures. This approach allows you to allocate resources to areas that will provide the most significant benefits for your operations, rather than prioritizing a quieter workspace within the vehicle.

You Don’t CARE IF YOUR VAN IS HOT OR COLD

Certain types of cargo are highly sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Stock vans can become unbearably hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter, posing a risk to temperature-sensitive goods. If protecting your cargo from these temperature extremes is not a concern for your fleet, like it was for Riverford, then you won’t find Legend’s thermal insulated solutions as valuable.

However, vans carry so much more than just goods. Imagine plumbers struggling with freezing tools or service technicians handling scorching hot equipment. Perhaps your employees are okay with their tools being affected by extreme temperatures, which would be an indication you don’t need thermal insulated solutions.

Although, damage to goods is one thing, having employees be at risk is far more serious.

Extreme temperatures can pose serious risks, as illustrated by the tragic case of a UPS driver who succumbed to heatstroke during a severe heatwave. As responsible employers, we all seek to ensure that we protect our employees and invest in their well-being.

If your operations are located in regions with mild climates where extreme temperatures are rare, investing in thermal insulation could be seen as a convenience rather than a necessity. However, for those who do encounter harsh weather conditions, thermal insulation solutions offer essential protection, safeguarding both employees and cargo from the adverse effects of extreme temperatures.

Who is Legend For?

Legend is designed for those who prioritize quality, safety, and long-term value in their commercial vehicles. Our products are tailored for businesses that understand the importance of investing in durable, reliable solutions to protect their assets and enhance their operations.
