Customer Reviews

“We’ve been using Drake-Scruggs’ bucket trucks for years. We have them here every year to do our annual inspections and we have them anytime anything breaks. We still have them work over here on their road service. It’s been great working with their reps and I would recommend them.”
-David from Decatur, IL

“We’ve known Drake-Scruggs for years and they’ve done a lot of snowplows for us. We sell some commercial units and they usually do the ladder racks and other stuff for the tops of vans. Their sales reps have been very nice. We’re going to continue working with Drake-Scruggs and they’ll get all of our stuff done. They’re really good and professional people.”
-Monte from Jacksonville, IL

“I’ve known Drake-Scruggs Equipment for about 30 years now. They have provided me services with the bucket trucks. Overall, the interactions I had when dealing with either their sales reps or customer service reps were good. I plan on continuing to work with them.”
