CLEARWATER, FL — UDS Adds Innovative Vehicle Sanitizing Product To Its Lineup!

UDS is announcing the immediate addition of a vehicle sanitizing product to its current lineup of top-tier products. This innovative product features hospital-grade (very effective) sanitizing for vehicles of all sizes. This eco-friendly product has been designated as a Level 1 Skull & Crossbones solution which is considered to be food-safe. No other product meets these standards.

Application
The application process takes a mere 2-3 minutes, and can be performed by anybody available…it really is that easy. The application process uses an atomizer to fog the inside of the vehicle with the air conditioning on and set to recirculate to ensure all ducts and vents are treated as well.

Safety
This product has been EPA registered and certified, including an “Emerging Pathogen” designation issued by the EPA on 3/26. We aren’t aware of any another product that is able to make this claim. Other products have proved to be very caustic and require additional safety gear to perform the application process.

Demand
Currently, there is a 2 week delivery window for this product. This is based on the high demand from the automotive industry but also by government, and by various other industries seeking to provide an effective, safe and easy to use sanitization product.

Cost & Shipping

The cost for this product is based on a per vehicle application and is to be ordered up front. The small average cost per vehicle is designed to make this a profitable product from the first application. Atomizer’s are available at wholesale cost. Other delivery options are available including no-cost sprayers. Atomizer and shipping added.

There is a nominal shipping charge applied to all orders.

Additional product details and up front ordering is available as requested.

Dear Friends and Business Partners,

In an effort to promote a socially responsible work environment during the Corona Virus / Covid-19 Pandemic, the majority of our teammates have transitioned to a work from home strategy.  The weight of technology plays a large role at this time as our corporate team has worked around the clock this past week to engage the work from home connectivity with protected technology.

In this realm, the Training, Coaching and Development efforts will be conducted online and all live sessions will be rescheduled at a later date.  A small rotating administrative staff will be available at UDS headquarters in Clearwater to support Sales, Underwriting and Business Processing.  Know that we are 100% committed to providing a seamless transition.

These temporary systems will remain in place until further notice. 

We wish you ALL a Healthy and Safe environment as we pass through this very difficult period.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
