artverb* has three trucks in its fleet: Herb, Yoshi & Hiro

Herb the artverb* original truck
At 32 years old, Herb is the original green machine that started it all. He is still used locally in Toronto, but since he isn’t climate controlled or lift gate equipped he is delegated mostly to transporting installation tools and art wrapping materials. Though not used as often he can be specifically requested for Toronto jobs including parades and parties.

Yoshi and Hiro are the other two trucks in the fleet. Both are climate controlled/air ride suspension/lift gate equipped/alarmed and unmarked.
