Repairing MTCs - By Dion Siluch

 Repairing MTCs - By Dion Siluch

There are a handful of MTC models used in industry today, many of which have now been used for over a decade. The question is whether it is better to purchase a used MTC and finish the repairs yourself or buy a brand new MTC… Lets look at some pros and cons about repairing a used MTC.

The easiest pro is simply money. You can buy a used MTC for half of what a new one goes for. If you’re handy with tools or know someone who can source the parts, buying a used MTC might be a great option for saving money. Another pro that is attractive is the decals, buying a used MTC creates a perfect time to remove those old decals and apply some brand new company decals for your own advertising.

The biggest con for repairing an MTC is the uncertainty. What needs to be repaired and where can someone find the parts? From experience it’s fairly easy to find replacement parts online if you spend a couple hours searching, however this takes patience. And be sure you have all the appropriate hardware for installations. Missing bolts, nuts and washers can create delays in getting your MTC up to working condition. Buy a new MTC could eliminate this hassle but usually costs a lot more $$!

Overall the choice is yours, but buying a used MTC is still my favorite choice.

MTC's that are not CMVSS roller compliant

This past month I was attending the Richie Bros Auction looking for some great deals on trucks. During my time there I noticed a few MTCs manufactured by Travelaire being auctioned and noticed something very interesting.

None of the Travelaire MTCs had roller over protection certified by CMVSS for use as an emergency vehicle.

This brought up some concern about the units.

My biggest concern was that these units had decals on the sides advertising it as a first aid unit.

According to Alberta standards this is illegal---

"In order for an MTC to serve as a medical transport vehicle, it is deemed a passenger compartment under the regulations, and therefore must meet the following sections of Transport Canada's Motor Vehicle Safety Act:
  • 205 - Glazing Materials
  • 206 - Door Locks & Door Retention Components
  • 207 - Anchorage of Seats
  • 208 - Occupant Restraint Systems in Frontal Impact
  • 209 - Seat Belt Assemblies
  • 210 - Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages
  • 220 - Rollover Protection
  • 302 - Flammability"

Let me be clear, it's not that I don't like Travelaire I just hesitate when I see them being sold as MTCs when they are not allowed to be used. It may be different in other provinces but in Alberta I would look elsewhere.

Meet up with Robert Kiyosaki

Meet up with Robert Kiyosaki

This was an exciting month for the continued growth of MTC Rentals. We went down to Phoenix AZ to attend the mastermind with Robert Kiyosaki and his advisers. It was a great experience to see the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. I highly recommended this book for everyone entering a business or interested in building wealth.

We want to thank all the people we met while down in Phoenix especially the Albertans and BCers working to improve their businesses.

Delivery into Northwest Territories

Delivery into Northwest Territories

Ever wonder how the far north gets their internet? That’s right, a new fiber optic line is being installed heading into northern Northwest Territories and MTC Rentals is proud to be involved.

This week we delivered 3 fully stocked Mobile Treatment Centers to the workers that will be installing this new line.

I’ve personally never done a trek this far so I went on the 3 day journey myself. The drop off point was 18 hr drive north of Grande Prairie on the ice roads of north of Fort Simpson.
