Ace Flyer Distribution is committed to the safety of our
crews since we opened our doors in April of 1990. Because of
this, all vehicles are well maintained and in good condition. We
ensure that our Dodge Grand Caravans are all equipped with seats
and seat belts.

one full ton of weight, but also helps with stabilizing the
Every van in our inventory is regularly inspected and only the
highest quality oils and lubricants are used. Although
specialized oil enables the van to travel 25,000 miles between
oil changes, we prefer to change the oil every 15,000 to
20,000 miles instead. The transmission is completely flushed
with brand-new fluid every year.

manager uses cell phones so that they can communicate with
the office and the customer if need be, and all are equipped
with a GPS tracker. This tells our HQ not only where each one of
the vans is located at any given time, but also included in each
van is an alert system which sends our office an alarm, if
anyone of the vehicles is traveling at an unsafe speed.
In March of 2011 a competitor of Ace Flyer Distribution
was involved in a deadly accident where several people were
killed and many others were severely injured.
Our hearts go out to those families of the individuals who
lost their lives.
The following is an article written by the Fort Worth
Star-Telegram about the accident. It indicated how the van had
no seats for any of the non management workers, and nearly the
entire crew was sitting on the floorboards:
Unsafe Rides are just part of the job for Flier Distributors
The reporter who interviewed Ace Flyer's Owner, Robert Stafford
about our competitorsí incident indicated that nearly every
flier distribution company he spoke to, operated by piling
people into cargo vans with no seats; that is, except for the
occasional milk crate or spare tire. According to the article
the van had very worn tires and one blew out even though they
were driving at legal speed. The vehicle eventually careened off
the freeway and slammed into a tree.
A word on this from
our Founder and President:
As a company serving the public we refuse to lower ourselves to
such sub-standards as to pile people into cargo vans like
cattle. It behooves me to actually challenge every other
flyer distribution company in business to meet me at this
level of standard.
My company may have to spend a great deal more investment on our
vehicles to ensure that the seats In our vans are secured and
with this, everything well maintained, but I refuse to put
people's lives in danger, just to cut costs, or earn unethical
profits. Ace believes in doing the job right, but we also
believe in doing the job safely. It's a standard I emphasized as
a necessity to my employees from day one, and no matter how much
we have grown in the business, this very important means of
operation can never, and will never change.
