What's a Glider?

With Clarke Gliders, you can add new life to your fleet at a cost that fits your budget. Our glider kits blend the best of what's new with what's great about legacy vehicles.

Custom glider kits are built from remanufactured parts of “donor” trucks that are combined with brand new pieces – such as the cab – to create a like-new vehicle. The Clarke Gliders team can work with older trucks from your fleet or help identify “donor” trucks from other sources to deliver huge savings vs. buying new.

Clarke Gliders makes the process easy, guiding you through customizing a glider kit suited to your business. We’ll perform a cost-benefit analysis, detailing how you’ll save with a glider vs. purchasing a new vehicle. We’ll analyze different build options and identify potential “donor” trucks – whether from your own fleet or other sources.

Then, we’ll assemble your custom-designed glider at one of our specialized shops in Greensboro, N.C.; Indianapolis, Ind.; and Wentzville, Missouri. Clarke Gliders are built from the ground up at one of these three build locations. There’s no inventory sitting on a lot waiting for a buyer.

We offer three models to choose from, each built to order to suit your vocational needs. Learn more about our models and contact our experienced team to discuss your exact specifications.
