Real World Comments From Our Customers

“We are very pleased with the overall quality and performance of the TICO products. Our work force is also pleased with the comfort and performance of these units.”

— One of the largest transportation service network companies in the world who purchased 16 yard Pro-Spotters and 8 twin twenty container chassis.


“TICO Pro-Spotters have been a great addition to our company saving us money in many different ways. The costs of the units are very competitive with other spotter tractors, new and used. The maintenance cost on the TICO units has proven to be less than other spotters in our fleet.

Also, fuel usage has proven to be less in a TICO spotter compared to a competitor. One thing that really stands out for us is the customer service which from sales to maintenance, has been a great experience. All of the people at TICO have been a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to purchasing more units from them in the future."

— A Spotting and General Freight Carrier that has been using TICO Pro-Spotters for 6 years.


“These TICO Pro-Spotters have been a huge success for us as a company. Not only are our drivers very happy with the ease of use, comfort and functionality, they are also very pleased with the reduction in vibration and the ergonomics of the entire truck.

As the owner, I am thrilled with the reduction in operational costs associated with the Pro-Spotters. Our mechanics readily comment on the drastic difference in serviceability and ease of access to service the units. We have not purchased anything but TICO trucks since taking delivery of our first one.

One of the most significant factors in our purchasing decision has been the continued excellent support from the TICO corporate team themselves. All departments at TICO have been exemplary, including but not limited to sales, engineering, quality control, parts support and the executive team.

I know that with TICO, we have a partnership that allows us to do what we do best, and rely on them to do theirs, creating a true win-win situation. Having been in the spotting business for over 30 years, I can put my name behind the product that TICO builds, sells and supports."

— A service company specializing in trailer spotting and yard management that purchased 25 TICO Pro-Spotters within the last 2 years.


“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all of your employee’s hard work, especially during the holiday season. You all took time out of your busy schedule and made yourself available on very short notice. I greatly appreciate the extra time that you and all your employee’s put in, and feel that this project could not have been as successful without all of your employee’s involvement.

Your company’s talents were greatly appreciated and your contributions were truly above and beyond even your own high standards. It is indeed a pleasure to have worked with your organization. You have shown commitment and honesty right from day one. Your leadership skills and team building abilities have resulted in successful completion of this project.

I am truly pleased with your company’s performance and contribution to our company. I appreciate your company’s innovative thinking and leadership which has been an asset for us to make this happen. We are looking forward to seeing that this is a growing relationship and is mutually beneficial, for both companies.

Please accept my personal gratitude."

— A well known International Transportation Company


“I visited the TICO plant and was very impressed with the personnel and the engineering and components they were putting into building a yard tractor that would withstand the severe duty that most switching tractors are subjected to.  

I purchased our first two TICO yard tractors in March of 2008 and have been very pleased with them.

I again visited the factory in February of 2012 and was very impressed with the upgrades and changes they have made. We purchased two more units and placed them into service on or about April of 2012.

I also would like to add that I found the entire staff at TICO very knowledgeable and they have been excellent on their follow up and response time on any service/warranty issues we have had."
